FUSED: Garden Gallery of Art and Metal

I’m VERY excited to announce that I had the privilege to lead and participate in Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens new summer exhibit: FUSED. Stan Hywet is the historical home and gardens of the Seiberling Family; cofounders of Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company and revolutionized the tire industry.

Inspired by the paintings of Gertrude Seiberling, Stan Hywet presents FUSED is a garden installation of 15 one-of-a-kind metal sculptures, this outdoor exhibit complements Gertrude’s paintings on display in the Manor House and is part of this year’s theme, Lasting Impressions, a celebration of her art. Myself and three local artists — Mike Ensminger, Megan Louise Shane, and Kim Thomas —have created the unique metal sculptures on display throughout the gardens. Each visiting artist is designing and building three sculptures for FUSED, two of which are inspired by the paintings of Gertrude Seiberling, and featuring a weatherized aluminum reproduction of one of her works in each installation. The third piece is informed by the artist’s personal vision and style. So in other words, one sculpture where they get to do whatever they want, barring it still fits in to the gardens. I, mysefl was tasked with doing 6 of the 15 sculptures, 4 of which include Gertrudes artwork and two of my own personal creations. The sculptures vary in size and will be located in garden beds throughout the estate. All of the sculptures in the exhibit are for sale.  The grounds are open Tuesday-Sunday 10am-4:30pm and the sculptures will be up all summer through the end of September. Be sure to come check them out! Pictures of the sculptures and gardens don’t do them justice at all.
