“As President of the Beatrix Farrand Society, I want to let you know that we were thrilled to show your masterfully crafted film on Beatrix Farrand. It was by far the most successful event in both attendance and positive feedback that we have had. We were all duly impressed with the way you are able to put your well researched information together in such a eloquently concise and comprehensive way. Your film got such a strong response and does such a great job telling the story of Beatrix Farrand’s life and work that we would very much like to use it in the future as an integral part of our forthcoming programs.”

“The Life and Gardens of BEATRIX FARRAND is a wonderfully researched and thoughtfully presented production by 6-time Emmy award-winning filmmaker and Garden Club of New Haven member, Karyl Evans. She has highlighted Ms. Farrand’s life and career with an impressive commentary and array of archival photographs, in addition to stunning stills of Farrand’s gardens that Karyl has taken herself. Needless to say, we will be inviting Karyl to present her film for the Garden Club of New Haven!”
