On Sunday Charlotte and I took a trip in her little red wagon over to visit Kathy Archer’s and Barbara Moody’s beautiful new gallery, Float, on Rocky Neck. The gallery is located at 77 Rocky Neck Avenue, #3, on Madfish Wharf. On exhibit are Barbara’s gorgeous paintings and Kathy’s stunning photos, and the two make for a wonderful nature inspired pairing.
Currently the gallery is open on weekends from 12 to 6pm. As of June 15th, Float will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 12 to 6pm.
While at Float, Barbara introduced me to Shana Garr, curator at Fruitlands Museum. Fruitlands is located in Harvard, Massachusetts, and fairly recently joined the Trustees group of properties (2016). Shana and Barbara thought our readers would like to know of an upcoming exhibit featuring milkweed and hummingbird feeders by artist Esther Solondz titled “Floating Between Two Worlds.”
Esther Solondz: Floating Between Two Worlds
June 1, 2019 to November 3, 2019
Esther Solondz, Milkweed Towers, 2019
Esther Solondz’s new art installation is an open, translucent structure filled with fragile milkweed sculptures and crystalline hummingbird feeders that create a give and take between what is outside and what is inside. The sculpture is situated in the field beside the Fruitlands Farmhouse, and the artist is inspired by its Transcendentalist associations. This work explores the overlapping relationship between the natural world and the art world.
