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.
