Collaborative Concepts at Saunders Farm
We're celebrating our 10th ANNIVERSARY
this fall at Saunders Farm in Garrison, NY!
Saunders Farm is located on Old Albany Post Road, the historic earthen highway of the original route between New York City and Albany. The property begins with rolling pastures and culminates on a majestic ridge with 360-degree views of the Hudson Highlands. Black Angus cattle roam free. Sites for art range from intimate woody glens to open fields and dramatic vast expanses defined by stone walls.
Honored to have my sculptural works chosen as part of this dynamic interactive sculpture exhibition that celebrates touch as part of the aesthetic appreciation of art. June 28 thru September 6, 2015
Richard and I are honored to be participating artists in the fall outdoor sculpture exhibition on Saunders Farm in Garrison, NY. I'm currently, mosaicking a life-sized dairy cow. So excited. Will post WIP photos.

When the opportunity to curate my first exhibition was presented to me; I set about reaching out to those artists whose works and lives I admired. I discovered Sue Kreitzman and her works through my love for outsider art. Sue's outrageous creativity captivated me. I was so curious about her. And I was compelled to reach out to her, even though she lived in London and she didn't know me from a can of paint! I wrote Sue Kreitzman a letter telling her about the exhibition I was curating and about myself. I asked Sue if she would allow me to show one or two of her beautiful kimonos or necklaces. Well, I was bowled-over when Sue Kreitzman replied to me two weeks later. Sue responded, "I'd love to do your show! I'm coming home to New York City for the holidays. I'd like to invite you to my studio; then we can talk about what will go best in the exhibition." From there, a whirlwind of creativity, art, connection and the abundant warmth of a new friendship began. Words cannot express how honored I am to have Sue Kreitzman's work in my first exhibition. I look at Sue's work and I am struck by the power of human connection. Never stop reaching out; even when the person seems so very far away. Congratulations on your great success, Sue!!!
