Saturday, September 8th at 1:00pm
as part of the exhibition “Streams – art in motion” highlighting the many wonders of the upper Delaware River,
participating sculptor Naomi Teppich
will lead two outings along Delaware River tributaries in the Livingston Manor area. There she will discuss her inspirations received from the natural beauty of these environments to create her sculptures.
Each session begins at the “Streams: Art in motion” exhibition hosted by Morgan Outdoors. Stunning sculptures by Teppich bring the biota of the river and tributaries into the exhibition room. Following a short tour, participants will continue to the field location to explore textures, shapes, and movements with the sculptor. The two outing dates are:
Saturday, Sept. 8 at 1:00 pm: Walk in the Headwaters at nearby Parksville Rail Trail. The walk follows the path of the O&W railway along the Little Beaverkill to a rock cut in the bluestone (raindate: Sunday, Sept. 16.)
Sun. Oct. 21 at 1:00pm: Walk in the Headwaters at Mongaup State Park. The walk begins under a canopy of maple and birch and meanders to a hidden pond and shaded grotto of hemlock and white pine (raindate Sun. Oct. 28.)
Several other public events are planned during the exhibition: programs about the walks and writings of John Burroughs; Artists who fished the Catskills; and First-growth Forests in the watershed. There will also be two Topography Workshops in October; one for children and one for adults.
This project is made possible in part with funding from a Sullivan County Arts and Heritage grant, funded by the Sullivan County Legislature and administered by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance. The Catskill Art Society is the fiscal sponsor.
