Exhibit – ARTINA 2021: Balancing Acts
Friday, August 20, 2021 at 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
Open daily from dawn until dusk
A juried exhibit featuring 12 original works created by 10 local artists who are members of the Washington Sculptors Group. The sculptures are exhibited throughout the grounds of Sandy Spring Museum.
In this exhibit, artists respond to the concept of balance, which is a dynamic force of nature and constantly in flux. The world is out of kilter, with natural as well as social systems listing to extremes. “What we need,” we say, “is balance; balance must be restored.” But what do we mean by “balance” and what is our relationship to it? What has the chaos of the past year taught us about the human need for balance? Can we ever achieve balance or is it an elusive chimera?
This is the fifth sculpture garden hosted jointly by Washington Sculptors Group and Sandy Spring Museum.
