Hans Hansen is the director of new plant development at Walters Gardens, in Zealand, Michigan, a leading wholesale grower of perennials in North America. He has worked extensively with many North American native plants, including Baptisia, Hibiscus, Phlox, Monarda, and Heuchera. He also has worked with Hosta, Kniphofia, Achillea, and ×Mangave (a hybrid between Agave and Manfreda). Hans will be speaking on the topic of breeding outstanding perennials, combining traditional plant breeding methods and germplasm, from the gardener 's viewpoint, to achieve new plants. This is a wonderful opportunity to get some behind the scenes insight on how exciting new plants are being developed.

“I’m always thinking in visual terms. Even when I’m writing, I’m thinking visually, and I feel like everything trickles down from that.”
Internationally recognized as co-founder of the band The Avett Brothers, Scott Avett has been a working artist, focusing on painting and printmaking, since he earned a BFA in studio art from East Carolina University in 2000. But until now this art-making part of his life has been a secret and a more solitary creative pursuit in comparison to his life as a musician, singer, and songwriter.
This solo exhibition features Avett’s large-scale oil paintings. These are psychologically charged and emotionally intense portraits focused on his family and himself—often intimate, vulnerable, and sometimes uncomfortably truthful portrayals. Like his songs, Avett’s paintings speak to universal issues of spirituality and struggle, love and loss, heartache and joy, as well as more personal stories of career, family, and living in the South. The exhibition also includes prints and paintings related to Avett’s musical career.
Presented by the Piedmont Laureate Program, PineCone|The Piedmont Council of Traditional Music, and the North Carolina Museum of History
