Peter Moriarty: Warm Room
Come escape the cold & gray that is March in Vermont, with a collection of photographs from historic greenhouses! One look through the pages of this book will transport you to a warmer, greener place - just the thing we need to get through to Spring.
Peter Moriarty's new book is filled with gorgeous images of greenhouses near and far, as well as historical data and personal reflections on each place. For this event, he will be showing original prints and sharing stories from his research on the project.
About the Photographer/Author: Peter Moriarty (American b. 1952-) began his Warm Room series while living near the Planting Fields Arboretum on Long Island in 1996. American pictures were added while visiting his daughters in Chicago and Berkeley, California. In 2010 he received a major grant to add a European perspective to the US photographs. His silver prints are now in many public collections including Princeton, Yale, Dartmouth and the Worcester art Museum among others. He is represented by BigTown Gallery in Rochester, Vermont.
