„Wind, Water, Stone” by US-sculptor Ely Zimmerman is on view until January 7, 2018 at Grounds for Sculpture in New Jersey, USA. The exhibition focuses on her photography, sculptures, and public works. Best known for large-scale stone installations, Zimmerman’s work explores the relationship between light, color, scale, material, and the changing aspects of two- and three-dimensional spaces.

The Grounds’ East Gallery will focus on her public sculptural works and the relationship of these works to her archeological photography. Stone sculptures in the adjacent outdoor hedge gardens continue the exhibition outdoors.

The West Gallery will further explore Zimmerman’s works on paper, juxtaposing her recent photographic collages of the night sky with her lush pastel drawings of clouds.

„Elyn Zimmerman: wind, water, stone” is supported in part with a grant from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation.

On view until April 02, 2018 is „Ned Smyth: Moments of Matter”. This exhibition shows the artist’s large-scale sculptural works that appear as large rock formations milled in dense foam, hard-coated in resin, and painted in a stone-colored palette (no photos).
