Art in the Garden
Nature has inspired artists for as long as we know. And oppositely, art has influenced people to return back to nature. From Thomas Cole’s landscapes of the Hudson River Valley to beautiful passages by Thoreau and Muir, art transcends time in its ability to inspire a culture to get back to our roots. Here at Goodwin we want to embrace the connection of art and nature and would like you to join us for a night celebrating this connection!
This summer we have been hosting an Maya Fraga as our “Artist in Residence”. Maya is a sophomore at Woodstock Academy and is interested in painting but has explored other media at the Center in order to express her own connection with the environment. Please join us during the showcase of work she has done here all summer.
Refreshments and light snacks provided!
