Outdoor Sculpture Garden at Sandy Spring Museum Opens August 4th

Artina 2021: Balancing Acts is the latest sculpture exhibit hosted jointly by the Washington Sculptors Group and Sandy Spring Museum.

Artina will be on display on the grounds of the Sandy Spring Museum from August 4 through November 6.

We stopped by for a preview of the exhibit on Tuesday, August 3rd. Photos below.

From Sandy Spring Museum:

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
