Ink and Brush and Beyond

One of the museums in our area that is not part of the new Fairfield/Westchester Museum Alliance (see below) is the Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden in North Salem. A review in this Sunday's New York Times reminds us that, with it's lovely gardens and blooming cherry blossoms, the museum "is one of Westchester’s top seasonal art pleasures." The article reviews the two current exhibits at the museum. “Brush With Nature” consists of 70 works by 23 artists using the traditional art form of ink and brush painting, and includes "Hands On" and "Quieting" by Mary Padilla (above). The other exhibit is of works by Sayoko Harada, an artist living in Gifu, Japan. Both exhibits run through June 19. Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden
