Continue with 2022 ART RAMBLE, “In the Balance,” Focus on Three More Artists: Paul Angiolillo, Carolyn Enz Hack, Jose Trejo-Maya
This third post completes the series of related posts for 2022 ART RAMBLE, “In the Balance,” with photos, quotes, and links for three more of the eleven artists* (four more of the seventeen installations*). The first post includes an overview. All three note the curator talk on October 16 and other valuable resources. Whether I post again before the final day, November 19, I intend to revisit and reflect on significant connections between the forest and the artworks!
My first visit this year, on a sunny September morning, should be one of many in the next two months, so I won’t try to cram in whatever can wait for future posts. That suits the spirit I sensed along the pathways of this year’s ramble, allowing time and space between, and within each installation to appreciate what the air is offering. So here are just a few photos (with excerpts from artist statements) from four of the fifteen installations as samples of what you might see if you can go or explore online if you live elsewhere.
“Arboreal Attire” and “Chairful Where You Sit” Extend History around Jason Russell House in Arlington
Sculpture by Leslie Wilcox, Poetry by Jessie Brown, Chairs Transformed by Many Artists: This post honors an inspiring event last Saturday (8/21/21) that reminded me, yet again, of how much public art keeps offering no matter how many challenges continue. Walking among at least thirty chairs and six tall trees with unique creative identities, I began to understand they all shared histories extended by artists’ careful appreciative attention. Also most chairs there were made with wood, so crafted originally from trees. Musical performances, poetry reading, artist talk, and many other happenings were free for anyone who visited the lawn of the historic Jason Russell House near Arlington Center.
That led me to this quick post ( with links, quotes, and key resources in red type) because the chairs are only up for bidding until September 5:
I want to speak out for a poem that speaks for our sidewalks.
