Newburyport Art Association Presents Sculpture Garden Exhibition | Local News


NEWBURYPORT — The Newburyport Art Association presents a new installation in the Range Lights Community Sculpture Garden.

This exhibit features 10 works by seven artists and is nestled between the historic NAA building and the Clipper City Rail Trail. The pieces will be on display until September 2023.

The Sculpture Garden is where each year the NAA holds a regional juried call for sculptures. The garden is always open to the public.

Seven artists – Eric Andersen, Jeffrey Briggs, Cassie Doyon, Joseph Ferguson, Rebecca McGee Tuck, Corinne McKeown and Jason Rivard – make up this year’s group of exhibitors.

Adjacent to Andersen’s geometric bronze “Interlocking Forms” is McKeown’s “Bee Mine”, a shimmering silver heart-shaped honeycomb dotted with bees.

Andersen’s second piece, “Soft Cube”, sits diagonally across his companion’s garden. Briggs’ “Monarch” features a friendly dog ​​sitting on his haunches as a butterfly lands on his nose. Tucked behind “Monarch” are the expressive faces that make up McGee Tuck’s “Mare,” “Terra,” “Vento,” an artistic response to the pandemic.

Next to the triplets and shaded by pine trees is Rivard’s “Pathways,” which he says is inspired by the natural beauty of Rowe Mesa in New Mexico. Rivard’s second play, “Memory’s Fable”, is nearby.

Rising above the garden grasses stands Ferguson’s ‘singularity’, which features a plethora of glass spheres surrounding a larger central orb in a formation reminiscent of a solar system.

Alongside “Singularity” is “Reveal,” an attempt by Doyon to showcase the human psyche. The six pieces surround Ferguson’s “Seven Stars,” which stand 8 feet tall and are created from metal and glass.

All works are for sale. The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
