Film for Thought

Art Salon with Ned Smyth Thursday, March 2, 2017 11am-2pm

Enjoy a relaxed and stimulating opportunity to share ideas and fine food at Rat’s Restaurant with GFS artist Ned Smyth. Smyth has shown his work at esteemed art museums and galleries nationally and abroad since 1974. His early work was in the minimal tradition, except that he included architectural references and created architectural spaces. Over the last decade the artist’s work has evolved from using Judeo-Christian and historical references to working with natural organic forms and images. His exhibition entitled Ned Smyth: Moments of Matter offers a ten-year survey of his sculpture and photography, and is on view through April 2017. Photo by David Howarth for dmhphotographer.com

Now in its 3rd year, this 3-installment film series features unique and specially curated documentary film selections inspired by the artists and work in GFS’s new exhibition season. Following each film, share your thoughts during a casual discussion led by experienced guest moderators.

Epicurean Palette 2016 was held on Sunday, September 25 and featured 30 restaurants and 30 beverage vendors. It was an absolutely beautiful day filled with delicious food, great wine, beer and spirits, outstanding visual and performing art, and delightful company. Our VIP Experience this year included a tour of The Seward Johnson Atelier followed by a private reception in the Cecelia Joyce and Seward Johnson Gallery. The Silent Auction was accessible online and mobilebased (making bidding and checking out a breeze right from your Smartphone!) and featured old favorites and exciting new experiences. The Epicurean Palette is Grounds For Sculpture’s largest fundraising event of the year, and helps support the exhibitions and educational initiatives for its more than 230,000 annual visitors. Thank you to all who attended, for your generous support of GFS! Savethe-date for next year’s Epicurean Palette: Sunday, September 24, 2017.

In October, GFS and BalletX, Philadelphia’s premier contemporary ballet company, presented a one-of-a-kind collaboration between contemporary artist Paul Henry Ramirez and BalletX choreographers, in dialogue with RATTLE. A Members Only premiere of the work, preceded by a process talk with BalletX artistic staff, choreographers, and RATTLE artist Paul Henry Ramirez, set the stage for this singular program. With this collaboration, GFS delivered a new and exciting platform to not only absorb the sights and sounds of a unique on-site installation, but also provide space for four young choreographers (and BalletX company members) – Edgar Anido, Chloe Felesina, Gary W. Jeter II, and Richard Villaverde – to shine. GROUNDSFORSCULPTURE.ORG

On October 5th, GFS welcomed Judy Blume as part of our ongoing Conversations on Creativity series. Conducted as an intimate conversation with Leonard Lopate of WNYC public radio, Ms. Blume discussed the process of creating everything from old favorites like Blubber, to her newest work, In the Unlikely Event. VIPs enjoyed a special opportunity to meet and mingle with Ms. Blume before the program, and a room full of adults and adolescents alike watched, listened, and learned from this celebrated writer and skillful interviewer on the Grounds For Sculpture stage.

member recaps

This fall, GFS Members journeyed to Northwest Arkansas and Kansas City, unexpectedly dynamic corners of the American heartland! The adventure began in Bentonville, Arkansas with a stay at the exclusive 21c Museum Hotel, including a private tour of the hotel’s impressive contemporary art collection. Members gained special access to the private art collection at Tyson Foods Corporate headquarters, before continuing to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The group enjoyed private curatorled tours at Crystal Bridges, and explored its art trails, galleries, a Frank Lloyd Wright house, and the dazzling complex designed by architect Moshe Safdie. More trip highlights continued in Kansas City with special visits to Belger Crane Yard Studios, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, and visits to local artists’ studios.

collections/exhibitions by Faith McClellan • Director of Collections & Exhibitions

I

t began with thirteen artists. As we begin our 25th year, this is a moment to reflect on the past and dream of the future. It’s also a moment to appreciate the amazing artists who have generously shared their gifts with us, and whose contributions have been paramount to the success of Grounds For Sculpture. The inaugural exhibition in 1992 included the work of thirteen artists (many of whom are still familiar names in the collection). Since that time, hundreds of artists have exhibited their work either on the grounds or in gallery exhibitions. If you are one of them, we thank you. The first work exhibited on the grounds was Isaac Witkin’s Linden Tree, sited for a short time in the sculpture court area before the dream of a sculpture park became a reality and construction began. It’s not hard to imagine the courage needed to throw oneself wholeheartedly into the dream of creating a sculpture park, armed with only a handful of sculptures and some barren landscape. Over the years, trusting his keen eye, Seward Johnson began to build his vision. The collection grew, the grounds expanded, and the landscape began to take shape. In no small part through Seward Johnson’s generous support, the collection now includes over 400 works. More than 250 of these are exhibited in this beautiful refuge that Johnson envisioned more than 30 years ago as a place to “wash away from the soul the dust of everyday life”1. The renovation of the fairgrounds buildings in 1993 allowed for development of indoor exhibitions. What began with thirteen artists has grown tremendously, not only in quantity, but also in the scope of artistic exploration. In 2015, GFS supported a large scale site-specific work in the East Gallery by Jae Ko, giving her the opportunity to transform the 80 foot articulated wall while pushing the boundaries of her work to a new level. In 2016, GFS partnered with Paul Henry Ramirez to create RATTLE, a multiple sensory exhibition experience in the West Gallery. The layers of sound, color, and scale beckoned visitors into the space, inviting them into the belly of the work that surrounded them. The result: rattling up traditional ways of experiencing art while still connecting back to the “visceral moment” so important to our founding vision. These projects likely would have been hard to imagine in 1992, but at the same time, the success that was achieved with each project between then and now has led to the fantastic artistic partnerships that have been forged in recent years. One can’t help but wonder where will the next 25 years take us? 1

inter is a wonderful time to experience GFS indoors and out! Members who enjoy curling up with a good book when the temperatures drop will want to add these titles to their reading lists now—and then join us in January, February and March for our regular GFS Book Club conversations: Memories, Dreams, and Reflections by Carl Jung, selected by artist Ned Smyth; Molly Prentiss’ Tuesday Nights in 1980, chosen by Book Club facilitator Jackie Kulesa; and Teaching a Stone to Talk by Annie Dillard, artist Elyn Zimmerman’s pick for the series. For anyone who loves a good movie, our Film For Thought programs will also be running in January, February and March. Featured documentaries will offer thought-provoking looks at how a sense of place can shape the human experience and create a collective consciousness through collaborative art. In addition, for those who have been marveling at Ned Smyth’s hard-coated foam “rocks”, we’ll be exploring a similar step-by-step process over the course of seven Saturday’s beginning in February, during Carving, Coating, and Coloring Foam Sculpture, a program led by artist Mike Gyampo. In March, we’ll also consider ways in which drawing and photography can heighten one’s awareness of the natural world in two workshops entitled Learning to See Nature with Photography and Pastel. These programs take inspiration from Elyn Zimmerman’s two-dimensional work and will include time out on

is the two ginkgo trees behind Harmony 3 by Daniel Kainz. The typical textbook specimen of a ginkgo tree does not branch nearly as low as these two trees, nor do they grow so wide at a relatively young age. The selection of these plants from the nursery resulted in two very uniquely shaped ginkgo trees that help set the garden at GFS as an individual among other arboreta and botanical gardens. During the past 25 years the landscape has matured leaving less space for new extensive plantings of trees and large shrubs. The major development of the park has slowed allowing time to refine plantings, understory development, a focus on plant health and rejuvenation, and careful selection of new plantings. As you will witness next spring, thousands of bulbs were recently planted along with hundreds of new perennials. Trees and shrubs will continue to be planted on a smaller scale following the same principle of rare and unusual. One exciting thing to be explored further at GFS is the manipulation of plant growth. Utilizing bonsai techniques and advanced pruning methods will allow for the development of exciting and novel tree and shrub forms. Keep an eye out for pollarded trees, interesting hedges, espaliers, topiary, and more.

hile strolling the gardens at GFS, it is hard to believe the majority of the landscape has been installed in just over 25 years. The only plants that lived on the originally purchased twelve acres were remnants of the fairgrounds entrance allée of maples along with a pair that formerly lived in the water garden. Some of these trees survive today. They can be seen near the school picnic area and on the east side of the Museum Building. The contrast of the featureless park in 1989 to the verdant landscape you see today can be witnessed by observing the historic photos in the Seward Johnson Center for the Arts. Many of the faster growing trees and shrubs have reached their mature sizes during the quarter century following GFS’s opening to the public. Other slower growing species still have many years to realize their full potential. Following the design and plant list developed by Brian Carey, some of the very first trees were installed in the park during the fall of 1989. One of the most significant plantings of that season was the crabapple orchard that surrounds the member’s parking lot. 124 of these spring flowering trees were installed in a grid pattern around the parking area. They have since matured to craggy and sculptural specimens throughout their lives. The sight and smell of the orchard’s spring flower display in late April each year should not be missed. While Mr. Carey’s list included a multitude of rare and unusual species, many were also fairly common for the area. However, being guided by the principle of rare and unusual, the common species were hand selected from nurseries and even the wild to find the most atypical forms of these regularly seen trees. Many times at nurseries, Mr. Carey along with Bruce Daniels, former Director of Facilities and Project Manager, were drawn to common trees that incurred structural damage as a young tree. The damage would then result in a common tree with a very uncommon shape and form. One such example

Remember When by Jody Kendall, GFS Volunteer Emeritus Remember when we walked into Grounds For Sculpture without lines, without fees? Yet pumpkins in their silver skins have always welcomed me with their sparkle and fecundity. In 1999, the park was twelve acres. The Johnson Atelier still did metal pours and the apprentices had rotating exhibits of their own work accomplished at the end of the day.   The Domestic Arts building was                                                                                                                                              the hub for visitors, volunteers, and staff, housing café (with carrot cake), gift shop, meeting room  and exhibits. It was DAB where tours began and ended, except in summer when we enjoyed the refreshing mist of the water garden. The park through every season is full of wonder, with nature’s seasonal plan and man’s innovation, moving sculptures, earth, water flow and always room for more plantings, from bulbs to unique specimen trees. At times surprise installations appear;  a bicycle in a tree top, vintage TV set in bamboo grove, card board sofas atop earth mounds, a lifelike bronze squirrel in Winter King Hawthorne tree, and some sculptural plantings by visitors and … Before night lights, we did moonlight tours with flash lights and discovered in ground watering system comes on at dusk. Inspiration is a constant presence. New additions celebrated. The early days were more quiet, more intimate, small staff, few volunteers, more family like. All that is beautiful lives on. The healing power of nature remains. Throughout all these years of growth and change, passing through the gates of Grounds For Sculpture, the magic of transformation,                                                                                              from tense to tranquil continues. I am grateful GROUNDSFORSCULPTURE.ORG

Brooke Barrie Art Fund

I

n January 2016, Grounds For Sculpture established the Brooke Barrie Art Fund to recognize former GFS Curator and Director, Brooke Barrie, for her contributions as part of the founding team that created GFS. The Brooke Barrie Art Fund has been established in an endowment at the Princeton Area Community Foundation (PACF) and supports acquisitions, conservation care, and exhibition development. Since January, 2016, GFS has raised more than $153,000 from 125 donors including a matching challenge grant from Cecelia and Seward Johnson and the Johnson Family Foundations. Additionally, the GFS Board allocated $100,000 to the fund—growing the endowment to over $253,000. With support from the Brooke Barrie Art Fund, we were able to fund in part, two 2016 exhibitions: Ayami Aoyama: Silence and Ned Smyth: Moments of Matter. GFS continues to seek additional funds to increase the size of the endowment to assure its ability to maintain an outstanding collection and continue to present exhibitions that feature artists that are diverse in artistic vision, age, gender, race, media and geographic location while honoring the legacy and history of our permanent collection. Help us to broaden and enrich the public experience of art, now and in the future. To donate to the Brooke Barrie Art Fund, visit brookebarrieartfund.org or call the Development Office at 609-2490233 or 609-249-0244.
