The River Project 2015 has ended
DNRT thanks the wonderful artists and supportive partners for yet another great “River Project” — a year-long exhibit of sculptures celebrating art and nature at the Slocum’s River Reserve in Dartmouth. The River Project 2015 was a collaboration between DNRT, The Trustees of Reservations, UMass-Dartmouth, the Gustin Gallery and the Dedee Shattuck Galery that showcased work by five talented regional artists: Jim Lawton, Elizabeth Shepherd, Isabel Mattia, Jenine Shereos, and Matthew Hincman. Large-scale, site-specific sculptures were on the Reserve from June 20, 2015 through June 10, 2016.
Drawings, sketchbooks, models and other supporting materials created by the artists was shown concurrently (through September 27, 2015) in an exhibit at the Gustin Gallery, located at 231 Horseneck Road, just north of the Slocum’s River Reserve.
“We are extremely excited to have hosted The River Project again this year,” said DNRT Executive Director, Dexter Mead. “The past two River Projects, in 2009 and 2012, transformed the Slocum’s River Reserve in an almost magical way, and the sculptures were sources of wonder and inspiration for visitors of all ages.”
The River Project would not be possible without special donations from numerous individuals and families. To support The River Project, please contact James Bride at DNRT.
