New for 2011!

New for 2011!

Visit Grounds For Sculpture in 2011 and experience art through new, engaging and unique workshops and events. There is something for everyone at GFS during 2011.

For patrons with children, there will be plenty of family fun in 2011.
• January: watch an artist carve sculptures from ice.
• March: learn to make natural dyes and use the pigments to paint a natural photo frame.
• April: make seed bombs to beautify any neighborhood.

Especially for families with children ages 3-5, our popular Tots on Tour program has been expanded; Tots on Tour will meet twice per month in 2011 for a total of 24 sessions (compared with 10 sessions in 2010).

Patrons wishing to experience art firsthand can try one of our new adult workshops! New workshops include classes making truffles, gift boxes and View-Master reels. GFS will also feature some new workshops taught by artists-in-the-park who have pieces on display at Grounds For Sculpture. Try your hand at woodcarving with Mike Gyampo or learn to model a bust from Gyuri Hollosy. Time-tested favorites to be offered again include winter and spring photography, yoga and a workshop focused on creating artwork to be displayed in your garden.

Those interested in learning more about contemporary sculpture can look forward to a variety of exciting artist presentations in 2011. Listen to artist Emilie Benes Brzezinski speak about her process, then meet her daughter, MSNBC newscaster Mika Brzezinski, as she signs copies of her memoir, All Things at Once, which became a New York Times Bestseller. There will also be gallery talks by artist James Surls whose work, Standing Vase with Five Flowers, is on view at GFS; Stephen Perloff, juror for Focus on Sculpture 2011, who will discuss his selection process and works on view; and landscaper Doug Kale, owner and president of Kale’s Nursery, who will describe the development of sites for various sculptures during this talk and slide presentation.

This is just a sampling of the workshops and events that will be offered by Grounds For Sculpture in the new year. Be sure to check our website at and visit often during 2011.
