Art in the Orchard
outdoor sculpture exhibition at Park Hill Orchard, Easthampton

Balance Stick by Brian Leff
Still standing strong and rotating as the wind blows – the main “stick” is a birch trunk and currently growing fungus, which is cool, but I don’t know if it will last forever.

Supposedly ridable, but I wasn’t brave enough to try.
detail of The Sleepers by Sophie Wood
The subtle turf bodies have mysteriously remained intact for a year – I’m not sure how these hold their form.
Who Lives Here? by Pat Bennet – 3 houses this year!
