Please join us on Zoom on Monday, May 17, 2021 at 6:30 pm for the illustrated presentation “Ellen Shipman and the American Garden” with art historian Judith B. Tankard. This program is being co-sponsored by the Gunn Historical Museum and the Washington Garden Club.

From the 1910s through the 1940s, Ellen Shipman (1869-1950) designed over 600 gardens, from New England and Long Island to the Midwest and the South. Her secluded, lush formal gardens attracted a clientele that included the Fords, Edisons, duPonts, and other prominent names. Historian Judith B. Tankard will explore Shipman’s unique style and her renown as a landscape architect.
