LongHouse Talks: Michele Oka Doner in conversation with Carrie Rebora Barratt
Where Did Your Soul First Open: The Trees in My Life and Yours
Join LongHouse Reserve in conversation with artist Michele Oka Doner on Saturday July 9th from 5-7pm. Her work in sculpture, furniture, jewelry, books, and design is fueled by a lifelong study and appreciation of the natural world. From her early fascination with the centennial banyan trees near her childhood home in Miami Beach to the trees that surround us on city streets and forests and gardens of New York, she continues to consider the symbiotic connection between nature, art, and human life. “I feel embedded,” she says, “in the veins of leaves. I looked at those and I looked at my hands as a child—I knew it was the same as us.”
LongHouse Reserve is a 16 acre sculpture garden reflecting world cultures and inspiring a creative life.
