Outdoor exhibit returns to Saunders Farm in Garrison
The outdoor sculpture show at Saunders Farm in Garrison, now in its 11th year, is about large sculptural art works with “a little cow on the side,” say its organizers. The exhibit begins Saturday, Sept. 3 and continues through Oct. 29.
Collaborative Concepts each year brings sculpture and installations by more than 50 artists to the rolling fields of the 140-acre farm at 853 Old Albany Post Road. Artists learn to be careful with the color red, the only color cows can see, because if it’s fabric, they will eat it. A few years ago, the artist Cassandra Saulter had cows mesmerized with her red nest in a tree. Cows stood under the tree mooing a serenade to it. The next year a green nest warranted no reaction.
An opening reception is scheduled for 2 to 6 p.m. on Sept. 3, with music and performance art from 2 to 6 p.m. in the fields and music on the stage from 3:30 to 6 p.m. A mid-run reception will take place on Oct. 2. Admission is free, and the exhibit is open daily from 10 a.m. to dusk. For more information, visit collaborativeconcepts.org or call 845-528-1797.
