The gallery was packed with visitors of all ages, many with a glass of bubbly or shiraz. There was a DJ (playing some thumping but laid-back tunes), live bands, and an atmosphere of thoughtful revelry.

I spoke about the intimacies behind artworks, including relationships with gardens: Monet's muse at Giverny was vital for his late works. I also touched on the virtues of gardens more generally: from relaxation and health, to creative stimulation. I had a good chat with some audiences members afterwards.
