August 18, 2017 through April 29, 2018
Dawn to Dusk.
Rockland Center for the Arts
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. Artists create and exhibit site-specific pieces relating to the environment and man, inspired by the natural habitat of the lower Hudson Valley. Artists will address ideas of light, organics, recycling and sustainability through these sculptures. Some may even explore the passage of time, loss or regeneration.
Visitors will be able to see the connection between nature and sculpture and how nature can inform design, illuminating the bond between art and nature. 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. 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 21, 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.
