In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty.  Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking.  Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

Balancing Yin and Yang: The place of Chinese philosophy in garden construction
Apr 21 @ 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM

What are the secrets and principles that lie behind the design of traditional Chinese gardens? Why is the water in the garden green and not clear? What are there bat-shaped door fittings? In this talk, we’ll explore how yin and yang and other ideas from ancient Chinese wisdom books like The Book of Changes and the Dao De Jing are embodied within the garden, and get a sense of how the traditional Chinese worldview is brought to life within its walls.

After the presentation, we will tour the garden to see these ideas in action!
