“Standing at the crossroads, trying to read the signs
to tell me which way I should go
to find the answer, and all the time I know
Plant your love and let it grow.” - Eric Clapton, 1974.

One of several Alex Valls organically shaped ceramics embedded in the crop rows.


 Fitzhugh Karol’s large scale crescent sculpture finds its place on the property, with a portal into the landscape. Mark Wilson’s “Portrait of God” in the distance.


Another view of this lovely beast.


Mark Wilson’s “Portrait of God”, perched up high, investigates Foucault’s pendulum in an ongoing series exploring the physical manifestation of planetary rotations on human psyche.


Mark invited me to his studio down the road.


“The Order of Things”, a multisensory performance presented by Lia Chavez (R) on the occasion of the summer solstice.


Manuela Viero-Gallo’s entangled broken plates, titled “Reconstruction”, in the foreground, with Nick Van Woert’s “Dory” sculpture and Joiri Minaya’s “Container” works looking on.


Detail of Manuela Viero-Gallo’s “Reconstruction”, which explores the notion of female fragility in the form of porcelain. The plates, in bondage, are meant to symbolize and remember abuse.


Detail of Nick Van Woert’s “Dory” that stands in front of two Joiri Minaya “Container” works. The sculpture references cairns, or man made stacks of rocks, as an ode to his love of the outdoors.


Detail of “Container” by Joiri Minaya, a woman in a tropical printed bodysuit. She camouflages herself into the natural environment as an allegory for belonging, yet with a powerful onlooking gaze.


A layered version of myself, admiring Lia Chavez’s “Model for Infinity Interval Solar Pavilion”.


Curators Alex Valls (L), Jess Hodin Lévy (C), Julianna Vezzetti (R), Juliana Steiner (not pictured).
