Join us for a special lecture with Marc Peter Keane as he discusses his artwork and how it relates to his work as a designer of Japanese gardens!

Landscape architect Marc Peter Keane's artworks are all, in one way or another, intersections with the garden. His artwork draws from the traditional culture of Japan, such as the way his ceramics are fired unglazed in a wood-fired kiln (anagama), and yet they are also unlike any traditional Japanese forms. He incorporates garden materials such as leaves and fine gravel into the works, and in part by incorporating design ideas from the garden, like the carefully balancing of wildness and control.

To open our final exhibition of the year, Mr. Keane will join us for a special lecture to discuss his work as a landscape architect specializing in Japanese gardens, how it has influenced his artwork, and the connection to nature that is the core of his work.


Marc Peter Keane is a landscape architect, writer, and artist based in Ithaca, NY. Having lived and worked in Kyoto for nearly 20 years, Keane’s work is heavily influenced by the aesthetics and culture of Japan. As a landscape architect, Keane's work focuses on gardens. As a writer, Keane's work focuses primarily on gardens and nature but ranges in style from poetic reflections on their meaning to academic investigations of their development. As an artist, Keane creates works that are inspired by nature and based on the long history of Japanese arts and crafts.
