    Shelley Haven: The Architecture of Nature

    Wave Hill House | January 20 - May 12, 2019

    Bronx artist Shelley Haven presents an exhibition of works in ink, graphite, gouache and oil. Selected from Haven’s series Travel Drawings and Boulders, these expressive, linear renderings of rock and cliff formations sighted during her travels resonate with the grandeur and rugged texture of the Hudson River Palisades, visible from Wave Hill’s Pergola and elsewhere on the grounds.

  • KangHee Kim: DREAMERscapes

    KangHee Kim: DREAMERscapes

    January 20 - May 12, 2019

    New York-based artist KangHee Kim creates digitally collaged photographs to juxtapose mundane scenes in New York City and natural settings at various locations in the US. Originally from South Korea and now living in the US as a DACA recipient, Kim faces numerous visa restrictions. Her surrealist, imagined landscapes serve as a means of liberation and travel.

    Winter Workspace 2019

    Glyndor Gallery | January 02 - March 31, 2019

    This winter, Wave Hill has invited a diverse cohort of emerging and mid-career, New York-based visual artists to create new work onsite. During two, six-week sessions in January, February and March, selected artists work in a wide range of mediums and an array of artistic modes, using Glyndor Gallery as studio space. While participating in the residency, the artists explore the grounds, study the garden’s living collection and experiment with new creative possibilities influenced by their time at Wave Hill.
