New England Sculptors Association Exhibition at Elm Bank

Massachusetts Horticultural Society
Announces the Opening of the
New England Sculptors Association Exhibition

“Gifts from the Garden”

(Sculpture Location Guide)

This summer when visitors come to The Gardens at Elm Bank, they will experience something new — an extensive sculpture exhibit created by artists of the New England Sculptors Association. Reminiscent of glorious gardens in Italy, sculptures are nestled among the flowers and grasses to evoke surprise and delight around each bend of the garden paths.

The opening of the show, “Gifts from the Garden,” will be in conjunction with the most anticipated event of the season, “Arts on the Green” on Thursday, July 27 from 5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. This free evening event, sponsored by Wellesley Bank Charitable Foundation, features an Art Walk of regional artists exhibiting and selling their work. There will be live music by LiveWire Boston, wine, beer and other beverages for sale, and garden tours. Visitors can picnic on the lawn and enjoy family activities.

“We are delighted to integrate these sophisticated sculptures into the gardens at Elm Bank. There are works that will appeal to all, as there are 39 sculptures from 21 different artists. They work in a wide variety of artistic styles and materials including stone, clay, metal, and found objects. Many works are inspired by nature. Visitors will be able to visualize how these sculptures can look in their own gardens, and fortunately these sculptural pieces are available for purchase,” said Katherine Macdonald, president, Massachusetts Horticultural Society.

“Visitors will be able to learn about the artists’ creative process through an innovative audio tour,” said Marilyn Ewer, executive director of the New England Sculptors Association. “It’s easy – to access the audio tour, visitors call 617-466-3067 via their cell phone, enter the number of the piece they are interested in, and they can listen to the artist speak about their sculpture.”

Artists in the exhibition include: Elisa Adams, David Adilman, Michael Alfano, Gregory Barry, William Bloomfield, Josie Campbell Dellenbaugh, Kevin Duffy, Larry Elardo, Yetti Frenkel, Douglass Gray, Joseph Gray, Linda Hoffman, Madeleine Lord, Fred Manasse, Judith Morton, David Skora, Karin Stanley, Steve Storch, Alan Weinstein, Joyce Audy Zarins, and Melanie Zibit.

“Gifts from the Garden” runs through October 9, 2017. Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Gardens at Elm Bank, located at 900 Washington Street (Rt. 16) in Wellesley, Massachusetts, are open on Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. For more information, visit masshort.org, masshort.oncell.com, and nesculptors.org.

Massachusetts Horticultural Society (Mass Hort) is expanding and enhancing our spectacular public garden destination in MetroWest/Greater Boston in support of our educational mission. We want you to be on the ground floor of its planning! Join us as we develop the Master Plan for this beautiful place. Over half of our fundraising goal has been reached in a quiet campaign. We invite you to join us and help us with reach our goal!

Our Vision

Mass Hort plans to create a spectacular public garden where people of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy and connect with the natural world.

Our home: The Gardens at Elm Bank

Our beautiful 36-acre property, The Gardens at Elm Bank, is located along the banks of the Charles River in Dover, just 30 minutes from downtown Boston. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, we have historic and contemporary gardens.

Need for a Master Plan

The Master Plan will guide our future efforts to restore historic gardens on the property, improve and add visitor amenities such as a café, visitors center, gift shop, farm to table restaurant, and assess the restoration of our Manor House. It will set the foundation to grow a spectacular garden with sustainable best practices.

The Master Plan will provide the resources and infrastructure for our educational mission for the 21st Century. Our goal is to continue to offer and more fully develop powerful public education programs about contemporary issues: the environment, sustainability, health, and stewardship of our natural world. 

We have hired Kyle Zick and his team from KZLA to develop the plan. We need help and participation with final funding phase of this exciting project.

Your Impact

At Mass Hort our mission is to engage people in plants, gardens and the natural world.  As a charitable organization, we cannot do this without the support of friends, donors, members, and people like you. If you have visited the gardens, admired them from the soccer fields, walked along the property, or have not yet visited—we hope you’ll support us!

Your support will make The Gardens at Elm Bank a place where people can enjoy the beauty of the gardens, picnic on the open lawns, and walk along paths for both physical and mental health. We hope you share our passion for the natural environment and will invest in our future along with many other individuals and foundations.

Thank you so much! 

Kathy
