August - Recommended Reading + Art Exhibit

This Fall on September 18th, Galerie de Bayserin, located in Paris, France will open an art exhibit titled Architectural Abecedario.

This magnificent exhibit will feature architecturally inspired artists Andrew Zega and Bernd H Dam's watercolor series using the alphabet. Each letter is beautifully transformed using an architecture or garden theme. A silk bound book, with a forward by Charlotte Moss will coincide with the exhibit. For those of you lucky enough to live in or travel to Paris, this is one you shouldn't miss.

Zega and Dams also created and published a book in 2005 titled Chinoiseries . This title contains fifty exact replications of Western Pagodas and Chinoiserie gardens. Luckily for us, this edition has been reproduced and is available at Amazon. I may buy two copies, one to cut and frame and the other for my library.
