Andres Institute of Art

A hill side of Sculptures, some in an old quarry. Andres Institute of Art. Leona and I discovered this place through the New England Photo Expeditions' Meetup listings. There are 59 sculptures plus on many trails and old sky slopes. They were executed by artists from all over the world who came there to sculpt them.

We only saw a small portion of them, some seven or so. The one at the left (a detail) is Five Dimensions and Counting by David Phillips a Massachusetts artist.

This is a site to be seen over a couple days or more or in several trips. More at my gallery at the title link.

Statues by Paulette H. Carr at Blithewold Arboretum

There are currently 8 statues by local Bristol, R.I. artist Paulette H. Carr. At left is Peplum. From the Map flyer, "Draped and elegant, Peplum is made of burlap, steel, resin and wood. The word Peplum originates in the ancient Greek word peplos or tunic, whose style has evolved to draping or pleating at the waist. Here the draping is dramatic and rich in texture." To see the other seven and other recent images from Blithewold, click on the title link. At the Arboretum through October 3, 2010.

Enjoy, Don
