    Another Garden

    Wave Hill House | September 06, 2014 - May 31, 2015

    In her exhibition Another Garden, Jackie Battenfield presents a group of Mylar and Dura Lar paintings which trace the twisting lines of budding tree branches. Through a meditative and painstaking process, she uncovers a deep affinity between the gestural unfolding of a branching tree limb, and the dispersion of pigments in liquids.

  • The Young Naturalist: Theodore Roosevelt at Wave Hill

    The Young Naturalist: Theodore Roosevelt at Wave Hill

    Wave Hill House | September 06 - December 07, 2014

    The “Conservation President,” as Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) would later come to be known, had some of his earliest experiences with nature during the idyllic summers his family spent at Wave Hill House in the years 1870 and 1871, when Theodore was 12 and 13. The budding naturalist found a haven here at Wave Hill where he could study, draw, and record his observations of local flora and fauna. Already in the drawings and diaries of those early years were signs of his adventurous spirit and relentless desire to categorize, preserve and even conquer the world around him.

    With the "Fireflies" series of photographs, Gregory Crewdson frames that fleeting moment when the sun slips away and the beguiling insects begin their electric dance. From one image to the next there is a multiplicity of movement, a sense of the unexpected and the uncanny.
