Located on the private estate of the late Harry Lynde and Peg Bradley, the art is part of the Bradleys' private collection.
Dog Days at Lynden
Free to members and dogs, or with admission to the sculpture garden. Bring your canine friends for an afternoon of romping in the garden. In the winter, cross-country skiers and snowshoers also welcome, and in the warmer months, we encourage picnicking.
Family Workshop: Recycled Paper Beads
Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Younger children should work with an adult. Drop into the studio to make beads from recycled paper to string into necklaces, chains, and ornaments. Once you learn, you'll be able to make your own beads at home.
Weekly Art Drop-In
Drop into our studio for informal art exploration. Come for 30 minutes or stay for 2 1/2 hours; visit weekly or stop by when you need an after-school activity; bring a friend or sibling or try it on your own. Each week we'll introduce different materials, processes and themes, and get you started on a project. We'll focus on three-dimensional artmaking--though we will also do plenty of painting, drawing and collaging--and make use of Lynden’s special resources: the collection of monumental sculpture and 40 acres of park, lake and woodland. Watch for occasional outdoor artmaking days, too.
Failure Round Robin with Pegi Christiansen
Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. If you would like to be one of the 15 active participants, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (and don't forget to put "Failure Round Robin" in the subject line). Pegi Christiansen is an artist-in-residence at the Lynden Sculpture Garden. As part of her yearlong project, Distance, she is organizing a Failure Round Robin. Distance has emotional as well as physical qualities, and failure often makes people feel alone and adrift. Fifteen people will have five minutes each to describe a failure and its implications--Christiansen will start by sharing one of hers. This will be a low-tech, no PowerPoint event, but show-and-tell items to pass around are fine. Those who wish to listen are welcome. Refreshments will be served. It is fortuitous that Robin Jebavy’s still life paintings of glassware will be in the gallery at the same time. Who hasn’t had the experience of breaking a window, someone’s treasured cup, or interpersonal glass? Jebavy will participate in the round robin and lead a tour of the sculpture garden following the Failure Round Robin at 3 pm.
Robin Jebavy: Artist-led Tour of the Lynden Sculpture Garden
Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Artist Robin Jebavy, whose paintings are on view in the gallery, will offer a tour of Lynden's sculpture collection. This is one in an ongoing series of artist-led tours of the collection, and will conclude in the gallery where Jebavy will discuss her work. Robin Jebavy: Recent Paintings is on view from March 1 through May 31, 2015.
