Join us for a day of art along the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail!
Women's Studio Workshop's public art program asks artists-in-residence to create engaging, innovative installations along the trail, which passes right in front of our studios. Each work is on view through the Summer, four months after the installation date.
Summer Art Walk and Public Art Reception:
Artist walks begin at 5 and 6 pm
Free and open to the public
About the Artists:
Philadelphia-based sculptor Mei-ling Hom employs sustainable farming practices and plant-soil relationships in her artwork. Her installation, Multiversity Garden, spells out a call to action in Morse code and will slowly change with the season.
Constructed in string, paint, collage, and nails, Alicia Henry’s mural bridges Women's Studio Workshop’s studios and new building. An interdisciplinary artist working in Nashville, she challenges the material possibilities of monumental painting.
Joining us from Boston, current artist-in-residence Heather Kapplow is imagining new interpretations of all twenty-two miles of the Rail Trail. Her experience-based sign series, Going, opens during the art walk!
[In the event of prohibitive weather, the reception will be held in Women's Studio Workshop’s new building.]
