And what a busy Spring it has been…
The photos included here are of the first of what I am calling the “ Fragment Series,” officially making its debut this summer at The Mount, Edith Wharton’s beautifully restored estate here in Lenox, MA. The photo shows Fragment Series (F.S.) I, II, and III at their site at The Mount, treated with a patina solution after being sand blasted at East Coast Refinishing and Surface Stripping, in Pittsfield, MA http://ecrssinc.com/ (They do really great work, and they seem to enjoy working with sculptors.)
The exhibition at The Mount opens on June 1 and runs through October 31, 2014. Please come to the opening reception on June 15th. There will be a guided tour of the show from 3:00-5:00PM, and a cocktail reception on the terrace of The Mount from 5:00-7:00PM. This show promises some quality work, and I hope that you can make it there over the summer.
Last year’s show at The Mount recently got reviewed in Sculpture magazine, and I’m pleased to say that my Paperclip got a photo and a bit of press. Please check it out at http://online.qmags.com/SM0614/default.aspx?pg=76&mode=2#pg76&mode2
A visit to The Mount is worthwhile in and of itself; the sculpture is an added bonus! Please check them out for further information: http://www.edithwharton.org/ Additional guided tours of the sculpture show will take place at 11:30AM on July 13, August 17, September 14, and October 12.
I’ll have two pieces in the New Marlborough Village Association’s Meeting House Gallery show Wood, Metal, Stone http://newmarlborough.org/ . The opening reception is on Friday, June 13 from 5-7PM, and the show runs through July 6. Hope to see you there.
In other news this summer, Albert Paley http://www.albertpaley.com/ is having a one man show of his steel sculpture at Chesterwood, the summer home and studio of Daniel Chester French in Stockbridge, MA ( http://chesterwood.org/ ),from June 14 through October 13, 2014.
Paley began his career as a jeweler, and evolved to become a master blacksmith/sculptor. There will be a reception for him, during which he will present a lecture on his work, on July 19. His work is definitely worth a look, especially when shown at a place as special as Chesterwood.
Here’s to an art filled Spring and Summer!
