Opening Reception – Sculpture in the Woods
May 21, 2017free
Rockland Center for the Arts, in partnership with Collaborative Concepts, have sited sculptures by 12 regional artists on RoCA’s new nature trails just off the Catherine Konner Sculpture Park.
The Opening Reception on May 21, 2-5 pm will include an artists talk, a tour of the sculptures and a drop-in Wood Sculpture workshop for Families ($10 per person).
The idea is to have adults and children connect with nature, to relieve the ‘nature deficit disorder’ we have these days. Perfectly placed sculptures, visible through and around the natural habitat brings a fresh enchantment to these trails. A glimpse of an art piece beckons the visitor to meander slowly through the paths and observe the intricacies of each exceptional work displayed within the landscape. The sculpture trail connects to the Palisades Park. It is our hope that this tourist destination will have an emotional connection for visitors with nature, the art and inspire all to spend more time outdoors while paying homage to the creative spirit that lives right here in the Hudson Valley and Rockland.
The exhibits will be on view May 20, 2017 – April 30, 2018, free and open to the public from dawn to dusk. Rockland Center for the Arts is located at 27 S. Greenbush Rd., West Nyack, NY. Gallery hours are: Mon-Fri 10-4 pm; Sat and Sun 1-4 pm. For more information visit www.rocklandartcenter.org or call 845-358-0877.
