Birute Vileisis

 

 

speaking on

The Gardens of Japan

 

PPGC Member, Birute Vileisis is a trained art historian.  Dr. Vileisis received her doctorate from Princeton in Early Medieval Art and taught art history at the University of Virginia. Thereafter, she became a researcher at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington D.C., a world renowned organization supported by the Trustees for Harvard University which supports research and learning internationally in Gardens and Landscape, as well as in Byzantine and Pre-Columbian Art through fellowships, internships, meetings and exhibitions. In addition, she worked alongside the Director of the Smithsonian Museum of American Art.  In 1980 she moved to California where she completed a Certificate of Horticulture at UCLA. 

Her talk will focus on the unique styles of gardens seen in Japan such as the Promenade or Stroll garden, Paradise, the Dry Rock Zen, and Tea Gardens. In presenting the design elements found in these types of gardens, she will review the main principles and garden design of each style and share visual ideas of how to incorporate the ideas of the Japanese aesthetic approach to enhance one’s own garden or surrounding areas.

The Pacific Palisades Garden Club, a nonprofit organization founded in 1944, attracts people living in the Westside communities of the Los Angeles area who enjoy gardening and also like spending time with other gardeners. Its large membership enables it to offer numerous activities unavailable to smaller garden groups.

The Club's sociable monthly meetings, open free to the public, feature speakers who present informative programs on a wide variety of garden-connected topics. Its members are regularly invited to visit local private gardens, and twice a year they can take special daylong tours via chartered bus to prominent public garden sites, garden shows, and special nurseries in outlying areas.

PPGC's Spring Garden Tour is a popular event, and the income it generates helps this charitable organization to support worthy local educational, beautification, and conservation efforts involved in some way with the plant kingdom.
