Artist Workshop: Judit Kollo - Music of the Winds: Sculpture Embraces Horticulture

WHEN: Tuesday, July 29, 2014 at 9:00AM - 12:00PM
WHERE: Meet at the Visitors Center

The coast of New England provides sometimes gentle, sometimes strong ocean winds. But wind is more than just a natural phenomenon. It is one of the greatest song writers of all times and to hear its songs we only need to know how to listen.

Join artist Judit Kollo as she teaches us how to appreciate the Music of the Wind. Students will make wind chimes and wind instruments by combining pre-fired pottery and ceramics beads with shells found on the beach. As they put their chimes together, students will gain insight into the structural mechanism of the wind instruments, learning to tune it to their own taste and thus come up their personal translation of wind into gentle melodies.

This workshop will take place in an outdoor studio space on the grounds.

We’re all eyes for the colors, have sharp ears for frog and bird songs (we heard the orioles this week), and those of us not plagued by allergies have been breathing so deeply to catch every scent we’re getting lightheaded. Or is it […]
  • The Trip on the Lusitania (May 01, '15)
      In April 1910 Bessie and William McKee, with Marjorie and 11-year old Augustine, took a 2-month long trip to Europe taking in the major cities and traveling first-class all the way.  They sailed on Cunard’s R.M.S. Carmania from New York to Liverpool, England, where they were met by their own chauffeur, Krohe, in their […]
