A garden’s design begins in the mind though its bounty lies beneath our feet.

Angela Curtes, owner of Grounded LLC, offers a two-part workshop designed to enthuse and engage participants in home composting as the next step toward a self-sufficient garden. Part 1 is an indoor workshop and Part 2 is an outdoor, experiential compost-building workshop. Take one or both!

This session will be rescheduled at a future date.
Part 1: Preparing the way for home composting and bountiful gardens

How do we begin to look at our organic household and yard waste as the heart and soul of our gardens? How can our kitchens and gardens work in concert to regenerate and create living soil? Join Angela Curtes for an indoor afternoon discovering why the earth beneath our feet is so important and what we can do to prepare the way for home composting this spring.

Part 2: Composting 101- making our gardens self-sufficient
This hands-on, outdoor workshop is designed for those wanting to take their gardening experience to the next level by incorporating a small home compost system. You will go home with all the information and elements needed to start a simple compost system that can be managed throughout the year.

A reception and book signing follow the talk. To reserve your copy of Robert Murray: Sculpture or Large Scale: Fabricating Sculpture in the 1960s and 1970s (which is out of print), email staff@lyndensculpturegarden.org. Books are $65 and $30 respectively.

Lynden continues its series of exhibitions exploring small-scale works by artists in the permanent collection. Robert Murray (b. 1936, Canada) is represented on Lynden’s grounds by Windfall, a painted metal sculpture made in 1966. In this exhibition, curator Jonathan D. Lippincott brings together some of the artist’s working models as well as a series of works on paper.

Join artist Robert Murray and curator Jonathan D. Lippincott for a conversation about the artist’s work. They will discuss the sculptor’s process of working with fabricators and foundries, issues of public art and the siting of sculpture, Murray’s early years, his close friendship with Barnett Newman and relationships with other artists, his lifelong interest in flying, and the current resurgence of interest in abstract modern sculpture.

The conversation will be followed by a reception and book signing. Copies of Lippincott’s monograph, Robert Murray: Sculpture, and his earlier book, Large Scale: Fabricating Sculpture in the 1960s and 1970s, will be available for purchase.
