Take an Arts Trek to Grounds for Sculpture
MAY 30, 2020
The Atlantic Highlands Arts Council is launching Arts Trek, a new program of day trips to artistic and cultural sites in New Jersey and the metropolitan area. Our first destination will be Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton on Saturday May 30th, 2020.
The site, founded by artist-philanthropist Seward Johnson, showcases sculptures from throughout the world in a 42-acre park and arboretum. Works range from modernist to re-creations of classic impressionist paintings. Indoor galleries feature rotating exhibits.
Participants will have the option of a guided tour by Museum Educator Callie Lasch or exploring on your own. Artists are welcome to use their time for plein-air painting or sketching.
Cost: $65 for Arts Council members, $75 for non-members, including transportation and admission. Lunch will be at your own expense.On-site dining options include a casual eatery, or Rat's, a formal, upscale French-themed restaurant, where reservations are recommended by calling (609) 584-7800.
Registration is required by April 15; early sign-up is recommended as space is limited.
Our motor coach will depart, rain or shine, at 9AM sharp from the Atlantic Highlands Arts Council Gallery at 54 First Ave., Atlantic Highlands, with return at approximately 5PM.
Registration may also be made by check or cash
at the Arts Council Gallery at 54 First Ave during our regular business hours.
The Power Is In Your Hands
What creative makers have known, intuitively, throughout time is that working with your hands makes you feel good.
Excitedly, we now know that the creative making process can be specifically harnessed to promote healing biologically, neurologically, behaviorally, and socially.
That's pretty powerful stuff!
This means that creative handwork can be
intentionally engaged to deliberately affect change.
For example, to impact mood,
alleviate stress and pain,
and help take a measure of control
over some medical symptoms.
