Brewster, NY – Sept. 23 – Tilly Foster Farm is please to announce new works being installed on the farm by Collaborative Concepts this summer and fall by 35 artists.  The works engage with monumentality, the galaxy, the environment and ceremony, ranging from what the Hubble discovered, to lighting rods, steel, wood, stone, and mixed media sculptures.


For the last three years, Tilly Foster has come alive with visitors in the Fall, who are eager to engage with art and nature.  The exhibit is in Putnam County just over the border from Connecticut.


What the Hubble Discovered, a 12 foot sculpture by Tim Lutz, offers a creative glimpse at the perspective of the wonders of space.  A large, bright sculpture with the essence of a paper fortune teller, titled Eye of the Cosmic Beholder, built by Storm King School students will dazzle those interested in space.


Laurie Sheridan’s sculpture of wood, resin and wire evokes an Egyptian feel as Sun Worshippers gazing over the fields.  Conrad Levinson’s sculpture calls on the sky and weather in a steel and chrome Lighting Rod.   While carved stone from the hands of Bob Madden calls forth the sun and time in Gnomon.


Ceremony, by David Links, consists of three large, minimalist wooden symbolic totems casting shadows from the hill and a sense of formal purity.  Inez Andrucyk’s created ceremony through Positivity Tower, her brightly colored mixed media sculpture that evokes a sense of smiles and happiness.  Nearby you can commune with Natalya Khorover’s Prayers for the Planet.  And Abhishek Tuiwala’s stainless steel, wire and chain hand gesture conveys the need to believe in Trust Personified.


Please visit the exhibit, free of charge, to see these 35 sculptors.  Tilly Foster features pastoral vistas, hiking trails, a community garden, charming farm animals and a farm-to-table dining experience. Children of all ages are sure to enjoy visiting the Kunekune pigs, alpacas, miniature horses and a beautiful array of chickens, including Frizzle Cochin Bantams, Silkies and Ameraucanas.   The show and the farm are open seven days a week, 10 am to 4 pm.  The restaurant at Tilly Foster is open Thursday through Saturday 5pm – 9pm and Sunday 11am – 3 pm and 5pm-9pm.  On restaurant days, the farm gates stay open so visitors can dine before or after the exhibit.  Visit Tilly’s Table at
