Topic: Magical Wonders in the Garden

Millie has taken videos in her garden of a fascinating assortment of flowers and creatures worth knowing. Many garden occupants and occurrences are overlooked because they are too small to notice. Would you recognize a 1/8" long newly hatched Ladybug larva? How about flower flies that look like bees or a furry Wolf Spider that carries a big silk ball containing her eggs. Some things happen so fast it's just a matter of luck being there with a camera - the Peregrine Falcon in the dogwood tree, the migratory Prothonotary Warbler and many other surprises. Come see it all on the big screen.

Before becoming the avid gardener and garden videographer that she is today, Millie Hines Hendricks enjoyed a successful career as an artist and designer. She received her Master of Fine Arts degree from the Cranbrook Academy of Art and spent the year following her graduation in Paris, France as a Fulbright Scholar studying the art of stained glass. After returning home she worked as a designer for stained glass studios in Philadelphia and San Antoni, Texas before joining the Art faculty of SUNY Geneseo as a professor of textiles and design. Her work in art and design has been exhibited at galleries and museums around the country and includes prize winning entries at the Detroit Institute of Art and the Rochester Art Museum. Millie is also the author of books, numerous articles and publications.
