Book Signing and Reception for Peter Wooster at Pergola Home

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsAbout 200 people came through the doors of Pergola Home in New Preston, CT on Sunday afternoon, August 26, to attend a reception for and signing of acclaimed gardener, designer, and architect Peter Wooster’s new, limited edition art book, Collage. Wooster (in photo, left, with screenwriter and Huffington Post blogger Jane Howard Hammerstein) has designed properties for legends such as James Taylor and Stephen Sondheim. After a 2006 stroke left him partially paralyzed, with limited vocabulary, he channeled his creative impulses into the creation of vivid, expressive collages, which have been the subject of gallery shows before being collected into this lavish, coffee-table-sized book.
