Beautiful photograph of Weir Pond taken by August Artist-in-Residence @thinplacesproject. Check out @weirfarmartcenter for more work from artists at Weir Farm. Did you know that Julian Alden Weir built this pond in 1896 with prize money won by his painting β€œThe Truants”? β€’ #weirfarm #weirfarmnhs #ctarttrail #artistinresidence #artistsoninstagram #arthistory #impressionism #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #weirfarmartcenter #photography #largeformatphotography

One of the great things about staying close by NYC is the proximity to well run, private museums that are easy to park at and also close to great county walks. We’ve been doing a lot of visits like this in preference to battling the big bad city in the heat. The Aldrich Museum [http://aldrichart.org/] in Ridgefield CT is one such contemporary gallery and it was here that I stumbled upon a gorgeous work by German artist, Mary Bauermeister, (b.1934). I'm ashamed to say that if I’d heard of her previously I’ve forgotten, though she was the founder of Fluxus and is still alive and working near Cologne. Looking at my pics of lichen on rocks at Weir Farm (where we visited straight after the Aldrich), I can see I've shared Mary's sensibilities for ages. Mary Bauermeister, 'Four cubed variations', 1968, painted wood, glass, optical lenses, ink. @thealdrich #aldrichmuseum @weirfarmartcenter #weirfarmnhs #weirfarmartcenter

Happy Father's Day from family man Julian Alden Weir! In this photo, c. 1892, he sketches outside with his daughter Dorothy. #weirfarmartcenter #weirfarmnhs #seeweirfarm #artistinresidence #air #fineart #create #nationalparkservice #nps #findyourpark #theoutbound #exploretocreate #visualsoflife #peoplescreative #ctarttrail
