Explore the 26-acre grounds and gardens, exploding with color and blooms from native plants, while discovering paintings, sculpture, photography, ceramics and more in this art show for the senses.

At 4 p.m. Saturday, June 8, exhibiting artists Bruce Lindsay and Aylin Green will demonstrate aluminum casting for sculpture. The pour will include open-face resin bonded sand molds to create bas reliefs, and direct foam burnouts for 3D forms.

Green has exhibited her mixed media paintings and cast metal sculpture at galleries and art centers throughout the region. Lindsay is a professional sculptor and educator based in Trenton.

Also exhibiting will be:

Lauren Johnson, a writer and artist based in Lambertville;

Sean Mount, a Solebury native and self-taught oil and water color painter now based in Lambertville;

Mike Pantuso of Doylestown, a five-time Emmy Award winner for art direction, best known for his graphics, illustration and animation for television (“Sesame Street,” “30 Rock,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), but with passion for drawing and painting;

Cody Shale Snyder, a stonemason, videographer and artist who recently returned to Bucks County after a seven-year stint in Santa Fe, N.M.;

Steven Snyder of Ottsville, is a self-taught sculptor since 1981;

Rye Tippett, a published poet and self-taught oil painter residing in Furlong;

Mayfield Williams of Lambertville, who was educated as a jeweler, but wanted a platform that extended beyond the body, leading her to sculpture, mostly dioramas.

A musical performance will be given by Andrew Wilkinson at the June 7 opening reception, as well as at times throughout the weekend.

Paul Steinbeiser, who specializes in native landscape design and custom stonework, will be available for consultations and discussions.

The reclaimed “Hannah Shaw” wagon house, circa 1830-1840, originally from Princeton, which he had relocated and restored, will be open for visitors to see on the grounds. His own home and other outbuildings are based on a 1780s Delaware Valley farmhouse.
