The Landcraft Garden Foundation in Mattituck has announced Sculptures in the Garden — an exhibition running from June 4 and through Oct. 29.
This year, the exhibition will feature the works of Eddie Martinez and Sam Moyer and is curated by Ugo Rondinone.
Moyer and Martinez, a married couple, will contribute 14 sculptures between them. Some of Martinez’s works incorporate found objects from North Fork beaches. Their works have been featured internationally.
Rondinone, a renowned Swiss artist, is best known for his expansive Seven Magic Mountains exhibit in Las Vegas
Rondinone said of the artists, “Sam Moyer builds her sculptures from stone and concrete. The exposed concrete joints reveal an assemblage of stones gathered from beaches along the Long Island Sound. Eddie Martinez builds his sculptures from debris he finds along the Long Island Sound like cardboard, wood, plastic, lobster traps and buoys, cast in bronze and painted in oil.”
In a in a curatorial statement, Rondinone added that the dual exhibition “is a thought-provoking playbook on contemporary sculpture.”
“Charged with a humanity and sense of touch, the sculptures are probing further than ever into the core of what makes sculptures exert their powerful effects on individual people,” he wrote.
The Landcraft Garden Foundation (4342 Grand Avenue, Mattituck) is open Fridays and Saturdays. The exhibition kicks off on June 4.
