Art Tour: Northeast, USA

March 25 - April 4, 2015

This is how we felt discovering Richard Serra's installation at Dia:Beacon in New York.



First stop, Liza's work showing in the NCECA biennial exhibit at Brown University's David Winton Bell Gallery in Providence. 1300 people attended, what fun!

Rainy Providence.




While the west coast is suffering from the worst drought in hundreds of years, the east coast seems to have missed the memo on the arrival of spring.


A snowy afternoon at Walden Pond.





Steven Heineman at the Fuller Craft Museum.


And of course, more ceramics...

Bodil Manz, translucent!



Farewell exhibit at the Lacoste Gallery in Concord.



We had a short but sweet visit with Bob at his beautiful cabin in the woods - the legendary Stonyhurst. Also, a fun hike in the snowy Sherburne Nature Reserve...




On our way to Corning, we drove along the Susquehanna River in New York. Mark grew up across the street from this river, further downstream in Lewisburg, PA, so it was a special experience to see it again after many years.

Beautiful in the quiet falling snow!

The Corning Museum of Glass just opened a beautiful new wing - a spectacular light-filled space showcasing the contemporary art of glass.

Endeavor - Lino Tagliapietra.


Incidents - Yoshiaki Kojiro.

30/06/2007 - Josepha Gasch-Muche.



Evening Dress with Shawl - A life-sized cast glass sculpture by Karen LaMonte.

Feather III - Mel Douglas.


Imprint of an Angel II - Jaroslava Brychtová and Stanislav Libenský.








On to Fishkill, NY and a visit to the Storm King Sculpture Park on a chilly but glorious sunny afternoon. It's starting to feel like spring is not far off now.

Shunnemunk Fork - Richard Serra.

Three Legged Buddha - Zhang Huan.




Broken Obelisk - Barnett Newman.

Storm King Wall - Andy Goldsworthy.




And other surprises discovered while walking in the woods...


The Agnes Martin galleries are divine!


And now, the pièce de résistance: Dia:Beacon art gallery, a natural light-filled space in an old Nabisco box-printing factory -- minimalist art heaven!











Michael Heizer.

North, South, East, West - Michael Heizer. A special, end of the day tour, allowed us to slowly, slowly inch our way to the sharp precipice of each smooth sloped, 20' deep form. Scary!



Richard Serra's warped steel sculpture installations alter your sense of linear space...






Fortunately our timing was perfect for a quick visit with Jon, Debbie, Sami, Nick, and the star of the day, Henry (who was celebrating his 1st.)

Happy birthday Henry!
