Event

Encountering PALMAS / June 28, 5-6:30pm
PALMAS is a site-specific surround sound installation that engages Manitoga's Quarry Pool and encircling path. The work takes its name from the improvised, rhythmic clapping that is an integral part of the tradition of Flamenco. Melissa McGill's exploration of absence and presence, accents and pauses enlivens Manitoga's landscape, playing the Quarry Pool like an instrument.

Visitors are invited to follow the site-specific sound installation Palmas along Manitoga's Upper and Lower Quarry Pool paths and within the House and Studio as the work activates and animates the site.

Manitoga Members FREE; General admission is $20; Seniors/Students/National Trust members $15; and $10 for children under 12.

Visitors meet at Manitoga's Visitor/Guide House next to the parking lot located at 584 Route 9D in Garrison, NY and will be directed to the site. No pets please.

ABOUT MANITOGA:
Located in Garrison, New York, approximately one hour north of New York City, Manitoga is the House, Studio and 75-acre Woodland Garden of American industrial designer Russel Wright (1904-1976) and one of the few 20th century modern homes and landscapes open to the public in New York State. Manitoga is a National Historic Landmark and an Affiliate Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Melissa McGill has been exhibiting her artwork internationally since 1991 including solo exhibitions at White Cube, London; Power House, Memphis; and CRG Gallery, New York, where she is represented in the United States. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, her work involves an interdisciplinary process, primarily incorporating drawing, sculpture, and sound to explore the space between absence and presence. She is currently working on Constellation, a large-scale sculptural installation on the Hudson Highlands' Pollepel Island, scheduled to premiere in June 2015.
