Martha Chiarchiaro has lectured on art history for more than 30 years. She received her Master’s degree in the History of Art from Williams College and teaches a variety of art history courses at the Worcester Art Museum and other local cultural organizations. Martha has presented topics ranging from floral paintings, American landscapes, and Monet’s gardens at Giverny to many local New England garden clubs. Martha brings history to life with enthusiasm. Her survey of art history, from prehistoric to contemporary times, touches upon highlights of art history that offer students greater understanding of the social, political, and economic events of the time.

Seaside Garden Club’s October Meeting

Susan MahlerSeaside Garden Club welcomes Suzanne Mahler as its guest speaker at their October 9 meeting, “Dividing and Transplanting Perennials.”  Nearly all perennials benefit from periodic division. Learn the indicators for division, which plants require regular separation, and the best times to split and transplant. Tools of the trade and methods of division will be covered during a live demonstration of multiple plant species with different types of root systems. Divisions will be donated to the club for raffle at the end of the presentation.

Suzanne Mahler has been sharing her passion for gardening for more than 30 years, having spoken at the Boston, Rhode Island, and New England Spring Flower Shows, Art in Bloom at the Museum of Fine Arts, the Environmental Protection Agency, and garden clubs and organizations throughout the New England area.

She is past President of the New England Daylily Society, an Overseer for the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, works part-time at a local garden center, and writes a weekly gardening column “Green Thumbs Up” for Gatehouse Media’s South Shore Mariner Newspapers.

Suzanne has been developing her acre property for 40 years and is an avid plant collector with extensive collections of woody plants and perennials including more than 300 daylily cultivars and 250 varieties of hostas.
