Inspired by the first lines of Robinson Jeffers poem RETURN:

A little too abstract, a little too wise,
It is time for us to kiss the earth again,
It is time to let the leaves rain from the skies,
Let the rich life run to the roots again….
This is a return to the garden, a return to our mythic understanding of our connections with the land, and a return to the art that nourishes our souls. Sculpture selected from artists studios in New England will be sited in the gardens and country home of Hawk Ridge Farm offering an opportunity for those looking for sculpture to experience it in situ.
