Ever since reading The Secret Garden as a girl, I've loved the idea of a walled-in garden. A courtyard garden is both an outdoor space and an extension of the home--a bonus room. Some may dream of wide open spaces, but I dream of a little patch of the outdoors that is completely private. A courtyard is the perfect place to experiment with plants without having to tend to a lawn, while providing an appealing spot to pause for breakfast or dinner. The garden above, which I photographed in Savannah, lured me through timeworn shutters to lean in for a closer look. The following images illustrate that four walls under open sky, plus greenery and comfortable seating, add up to a dose of tranquility.

On view July 2-August 6, 2010
Katherine Gressel, Curator

In this Pallet City exhibit, six artists/artist teams respond to the idea of a shipping pallet gallery by exhibiting work made with found or recycled materials. These artists also address questions of the Ideal City as related to the history and future of Governors Island, having mined the island for both building materials and subject matter for their work.

Marina Zamalin’s photo dioramas juxtapose images of Governor’s island and other sites that suggest different possible solutions for the island’s future. Deborah K. Hall re-purposes a found wood cabinet and found sheet metal as a metaphor for “Governors Island as a more carefree world”—the cabinet’s door opens to reveal images of play. Julia Whitney Barnes and Triada Samaras/Susan Handler Konvit address the importance of preserving the island’s natural landscape, from the East River that has become “scarred” by chemicals, to disappearing local wildlife-- Whitney Barnes sees the island as “a perfect location for a bat refuge because of its abundance of abandoned buildings and ample tree cover.” For Katherine Gressel, wood scraps found on the island become canvases for small plein-air paintings completed in one afternoon at Pallet City—they reveal new vantage points of the island as seen through pallet walls. Michael Sherman also explores the potential of the pallet not just as a support structure, but a means of fracturing space and encouraging new interactions with the island.

Visitor-drawn graffiti from our first, participatory exhibit: we sanded some of it off, but kept the contributions we liked the most that were written in response to the question: "What is your idea of the ideal city?"
