with Sue Pezanoski Browne & Katie Hobday

Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Younger children should be accompanied by an adult.

Sue Pezanoski Browne and Katie Hobday, Lynden’s teachers-in-residence, invite you to participate in the Sound Tree Project, the focus of their collaborative artist residency. Working in a grove of trees on the Lynden grounds, Pezanoski Browne and Hobday are constructing an environment filled with clay chimes that they make and fill with personal narratives. This exploration of art, nature, memory, and materials is informed by their thinking about movement and migration—about life as movement interspersed with pauses of various lengths.

On two Sundays this fall, people of all ages can join the artists as they work on their installation. On October 20, participants will explore the tension between movement and stillness by creating a large weaving between the trees. On November 17, you will use clay to add sound to the installation, experimenting with various natural forms to create chimes.

Watch for more Sound Tree Project drop-in workshops in the spring.
