November 15, 2005 Art - Digital Photographic Essay of Montecito's Val Verde estate. Perhaps even more significant than its Spanish Colonial Revival house designed by Bertram Goodhue, are Val Verde's powerful and poetic gardens, transformed in the 1930s from formal academic expressions into a simple evocation of an Italian villa garden. This masterwork, by pioneering California landscape architect Lockwood de Forest, is a rare surviving example of his unique approach: a dramatic setting for sculpture, simple details, and theatrical effects achieved almost entirely with plants. Lockwood deForest (1896-1949), born in New York City, practiced landscape architecture in the Santa Barbara area from 1922 until his death. Presently, its Foundation is working to carry out the late owner's wishes to protect this California Landmark. They would like to open the site to limited tours, but neighbors object. A lawsuit is pending. For now the public can enjoy this artistic journey into the gardens and halls of Val Verde. Cost: Free. Golden West College Fine Arts Gallery is located on the campus of Golden West (Community) College on Gothard Street. Enter on Center Avenue at the KOCE sign. Walk down the main entrance (middle of three cement paths) and the building will be on the left. Time: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m. Location: 15744 Golden West Street, Huntington Beach, California 92647.
