‘Solidity’ opens at Ward Pound Ridge

“Solidity,” a collection of outdoor sculpted works by various artists, will be on display starting Saturday, May 1, in the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation.

The exhibit is organized and overseen by Art in the Park, a program that brings changing exhibitions of sculpture, paintings, murals and other forms of artwork to this Westchester County park to engage visitors of all ages and to encourage conversation, education and appreciation of two-and-three-dimensional art.  Much of the artwork on display aligns with the missions of both Art in the Park and the park itself, in that these sculptures reflect a connection to nature. Two of the works—totem poles by Ilan Ashkenazi—are displayed on ground where once indigenous peoples of the Lenape nation lived, worked, and thrived.

Two works on exhibit were sculpted by the artist, Liza O’Connor, and are on loan from the private collection of Susan and Don Bittker. The exhibit will also include works by Bedford artist, Rob Spinazzola, and by Pound Ridge artist, Wendy Klemperer, which will be for sale.

The exhibit is self-guided and socially distanced. A brochure available at no cost will map out the location of the sculpted pieces.
