The Painting Center presents Cultivate Your Garden features paintings by figurative artists whose work is loosely based on the landscape or garden. The title for the exhibition comes from the playwright Voltaire in Candide, which says that “tending one’s own garden” is not only a private activity but also a productive one (1759). This idea of connecting to nature despite the ugliness of the world around us seems apt at this current time.
