Artist Lecture: Claudy Jongstra September 27 ~Pocantico Hills~
Claudy Jongstra will present a lecture about why she centers agriculture as the foundation of her artistic practice and how her artworks serve as both embodiments of and influences on her local landscape in the Netherlands.
WOVEN SKIN features an assemblage of sixty hand-felted textile artworks that evoke a primal architectural impulse, and demonstrates the unbreakable linkages between culture and agriculture, between the natural world and creative inspiration. The piece maps a regional agricultural community to conceptual art and connects humans across industries, communities, and the globe.
Location: Stone Barns Center, Pocantico Hills
