Members Only Preview for Sculpture Exhibit: Wind, Waves & Light
Friday, April 27, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Members please join us at the unveiling of the Wind, Waves & Light sculpture exhibit before it opens to the general public. Take part in a tour to see each of these beautiful sculptures. While here, members may also see the spring blooms outside and the display in the Hughes Conservatory.
Enjoy a dessert (including cupcakes from Ali Cakes) and coffee, as well as a presentation by the exhibit creator, George Sherwood. Walk outside to see an abstract film, called Echos created by Betsy Tobin of Now or Never Theatre, of Sherwood's work projected onto trees and shrubs.
The Wind, Waves & Light exhibit will be at the Gardens until November 3 and features 13 sculptures designed to explore space, time, and the dynamic relationship of objects in motion. The choreography of each piece is governed by a set of basic movements, facilitated by an arrangement of aerodynamic surfaces connected by rotational points. The sculptures are made of stainless steel, and the reflective qualities integrate each sculpture into its environment. Wind speed and direction, shades of light, time of day, precipitation, and seasonal color transform the qualities of light and movement of the sculptures.
George Sherwood, an award-winning American sculptor, was born and raised in the coastal town of Fairfield, Connecticut. He now lives and works in Ipswich, Massachusetts, and holds degrees in both art and engineering.
Free and open to all Reiman Gardens' members. An RSVP is required to attend. Please RSVP by April 20 at 12:00 p.m. to the Membership Coordinatorat 515-294-3755 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
