Here Comes the Sun: Sculptures by Tom Holmes
Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit
Now - October 28, 2012
Open during regular museum hours
Continuing the success of our outdoor sculpture exhibit in the 2011 season, The Museum at Bethel Woods is pleased to present an installation of ten sculptures by artist Tom Holmes.
Working in steel, copper, bronze, stone, wood, and ice, Holmes creates stunning sculptures that have been shown in solo and group exhibitions in New York, Paris, Chicago, Providence, and San Antonio, as well as Concord (Mass.), Milford, Barryville, Beacon, Garrison, Narrowsburg, Scranton, and New Paltz. Major commissions and permanent installations include Westchester Medical Center, Marble Falls Texas, and Rockland Art Center. In 2010, Holmes created the “Wish Tree” for The Museum at Bethel Woods’ Give Peace A Chance exhibition.
Here Comes the Sun brings together ten sculptures, several of which were designed specifically for the site here at Bethel Woods. The artist’s goal was to create a cohesive installation of sculptures in harmony with each other and with the site.
Some have asked about the “meaning” of these ten sculptures, individually and as a group. As is true for most non-representational art, the meaning is different for each viewer. The artist created each piece with his own personal dialogue and his own ideas of what the work evokes in him, but he encourages each viewer to begin his or her own dialogue with the artworks. To fully enjoy and appreciate these pieces, one only has to listen to the gut feelings, emotions, and set-aside thoughts these compositions of steel, stone, and wood evoke. There is no right or wrong answer—they mean what you feel they mean.
