Out of the Darkness, Glimmers of Hope At RE Institute
The Re Institute in North East/Millerton, N.Y., has an ongoing outdoor showing of work by dozens of artist called Together in Isolation.
“The show is laid out along a path that meanders around a pond and through farm fields, allowing the viewer to explore at their own pace and direction,” according to the Re Institute website.
Each piece is laid out in a clear plastic box and then put in the ground, with a small light behind it.
“The experience of walking in the dark, surrounded by the rich, seasonal sounds and smells of the outdoors is a major part of the exhibit.”
New work will be added to the exhibition “until such a time as we may all safely gather indoors together again.
“Then Together in Isolation will end as it began — paradoxically — with a celebratory closing instead of an opening.”
The work can be seen at the Re Institute, 1395 Boston Corners Road, in North East/Millerton on Wednesdays and Fridays from dusk until dark by appointment; go to www.TheReInstitute.com or call 518-567-5359. Photos of the work and short videos by the artists can also be seen at the website.
