    Foregrounding the Palisades

    Glyndor Gallery | September 01 - December 02, 2012

    This fall, artists Isidro Blasco, Blane De St. Croix and Paula Winokur bring the Palisades into focus in Foregrounding the Palisades, an exhibition of site-specific sculptural installations in Glyndor Gallery, that responds to the majestic rock formations integral to Wave Hill’s vista. A shared interest in geology, ecology, preservation and history serves as inspiration for the artists, who construct these new works through distinct processes. Wave Hill is collaborating on related programming with the Hudson River Museum and the Palisades Interstate Park Commission, two other institutions flanking the lower Hudson River.
