March brings Cristina Bonilla to the Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence program. Bonilla “draws inspiration from the observation of Nature – to understand the colors, forces, movements and spatial tensions that characterize a particular place.” At Weir Farm she will work on a series entitled “Stones Are the Roots of Clouds” that explores the constantly shifting relationship between land and sky—“a meditation upon the finite place we inhabit and its connection to the boundless sky.” Co-sponsored by Weir Farm Art Center and Weir Farm National Historic Site and presented by Wilton Library. No charge. Registration suggested.
