Garden Girls 

When: Sept. 16-Oct. 3 2009
Garden Girls is an exhibition celebrating the lives and efforts of two Lewiston women who created a life-long community gift known as the Modie Park Conservancy, as well as a critical look at the current social and communal implications through the use of sustainable garden and agricultural practices and their impact on local communities. The exhibition opening is Wednesday, Sept. 16 from 5-8 p.m. in the Center for Art and History’s new location, 721 Seventh Avenue in Lewiston. The Garden Girls exhibition celebrates Anabel Osborn and Ruth Modie’s gift of land that created a city park which continues to give back. The exhibition examines the importance of local sustainable growing practices, slow food and the link between the community garden project and the community at large, through an artist’s perspective and includes photography, original artwork by artists Rachel Eastman and Aaron Johnson and historical pieces, including Anabel's collection of garden hats, tools and historical story boards.
