Public Pathways: The Olmsted Legacy, A Photographic Journal by Nancy J. Ori
July 5 - August 18, 2000
Funded by Professional Planning & Engineering Corp. and the Friends of Walsh Library Gallery.
Walsh Library Gallery presents the striking nature images of Nancy J. Ori in a new photographic journal in which the Olmsted landscapes of the Union County Park System have been transformed by the photographer's unique internal vision into powerful documentations of beauty within our local parks. The photographs speak to the timelessness of the land and the landscape designs. The exhibit provides a balance of images between the elements of turf, wood and water reflecting many of the design elements typical within the Olmsted parks. Some are romantic in style and provide a strong contrast to the local towns; some are bold forms or use a vista as an aesthetic organizing element. Others are planned or contain artistically composed plantings and some provide a formal element. They are all works of art by Ori and Olmsted.
