Calling All Art and Garden Lovers! New Exhibit at Elm Bank

By EMILY R. SINCLAIR, The Shore Group

This summer through this fall, The Gardens at Elm Bank will feature a sculpture exhibit created by artists of the New England Sculptors Association. Viewing the art is free for all, as is the parking at Elm Bank.

While walking through The Gardens one may notice that each work of art is nestled between shrubs, flowers, or grass to improve the experience of walking through the already beautiful Elm Bank grounds. The sculptures’ diversity of location is matched by the diversity of materials used in the sculptures; artists used stone, clay, metal, and other found objects to bring their imagined works to life. Overall, the beauty of these sculptures and gardens together is perfect for any date night, solo adventure, or other occasion.

Fortunately, the additive properties of these sculptures are not limited to the Elm Bank gardens; visitors have the opportunity of buying any of the works of art. If you find yourself walking through the gardens and see a piece you like, you can call (617) 466-3067 and enter the number of the piece you are interested in to hear the artist speak about their sculpture. The total collection of 39 pieces, crafted by 21 artists, brings a robust selection to any viewer or potential buyer.

This exhibit, also known as “Gifts from the Garden”, will be up until October 9, 2017. Additionally, The Gardens are open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00AM-4:00PM.

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.
