“Art in Nature punctuates the splendid terraces and walks of Greenwood Gardens with a selection of work by distinguished current sculptors ranging from expressive figures and stylized animals to geometric abstractions, and a lot in between,” notes Wilkin. “Unexpected harmonies are revealed, as a provocative conversation develops between works of art and an elegantly disciplined natural world.”
Featuring 39 sculptures representing 31 artists, the works in Art in Nature are varied, ranging from Mia Westerlund Roosen’s “Eminence,” a mysterious and suggestive abstract work of industrial felt and resin to Jon Isherwood’s “Turning Points,” two large granite forms that appear light and animated despite their massive bulk. Other highlights are William Tucker’s expressive bronze sculpture “Horse X” and Anne Arnold’s “Bill,” one of an extensive series of animal sculptures described by The New York Times as “delightful and humorous.”
“Since opening to the public last year, Greenwood Gardens is fulfilling its promise as a special place where visitors can escape from the pressures of city life. Bringing significant works of art into our collection of outdoor ‘rooms,’ we’ve created the perfect setting to elicit the element of surprise as visitors discover each new piece of sculpture,” notes Liz Johnson, executive director of Greenwood Gardens.
Art in Nature: A Collaboration of Greenwood Gardens & Studio Montclair has been co-organized by Studio Montclair and Greenwood Gardens.
