Historic Onderdonk House, located on the Bushwick/Ridgewood border, is the site of a group show of sculpture by contemporary artists, many of whom have studios in the neighborhood’s thriving arts community. Local artist and Bushwick gallerist, Deborah Brown, has joined forces with LES gallerist, Lesley Heller, to curate “Sculpture Garden.” The work in the exhibition responds to the unique pastoral landscape of this 17th century Dutch farmhouse, remarkably preserved in a now industrial neighborhood on Flushing Avenue. The House’s gardens, sloping hill, and tree-lined promontory provide a context for a wide-range of sculptural practices and materials. The curators are delighted to present this exhibition during Bushwick Open Studios, with the opening to take place a month before Bushwick’s well-regarded community-wide art event.
The show features the work of Sarah Bednarek, Reade Bryan, Joy Curtis, Adam Distenfeld, Ryan Michael Ford, Wendy Klemperer, Jolynn Krystosek, MaryKate Maher, Jim Osman, Brent Owens, Kirk Stoller, Kai Vierstra, and Natalia Zubko.
