The biennial Art in the Orchard 2015 in underway. I have been looking forward to the event for weeks and I know so have many others from far and near. Art In the Orchard, which is open all day from August 15 – October 31, 2015, is a walking sculpture trail which winds through fruit gardens of Park Hill Orchard in Easthampton, MA (82 Park Hill Rd).  This third bienniel exhibition features the work of 28 selected sculptors. The self-guided trail is about a half-mile long.

The trail is a unique combination of art and agriculture and the views at Park Hill Orchard are absolutely stunning. The sculptures convey a beautiful creativity which has become quite commonplace in Easthampton, MA. The sculptures were created by local and regional artists and if you visited the orchard on opening weekend you may have had a chance to speak with the artists and learn about the stories behind their creations. As the official video production company, we have already visited the event several times and captured both video and photo images. (Some of them are shown in this post). I think anyone visiting Art in the Orchard will find you can’t just go once, there’s just too much to see and experience.

Below are two videos, the first is a virtual tour and the second video was captured during opening weekend in mid-August. Enjoy.

 

Nature, art, and agriculture are seamlessly merged and the experience takes the visitors into a momentary timeless peace. Just let the warm sunshine, the stunning views, the fascinating sculptures, and the delicious fruit gardens encapsulate your senses, and you will find what it means to live in the moment.

If you have not yet visited this year’s event I recommend planning a visit. Feel free to share this post with friends and family – you just don’t want to miss Art in the Orchard 2015.
