The leaves are changing and the light is waning, and that means that two of Storm King Art Center’s recent exhibits will be closing soon.

Lynda Benglis: Water Sources” closes on November 8. Benglis used the water fountains at Storm King as the setting for her sculptures, which are comprised of material like wax, bronze, and clay, as well as less traditional materials such as polyurethane foam and latex rubber. Her sculptures capture the haunting movement of water, locked forever in time in solid form, creating haunting, fluid figures that resemble stalagmites hidden deep within underground caves.

Storm King will be offering a Curator’s Walk of “Water Sources” on Sunday, October 18 at 2pm. The walking tour and talk will be led by Director and Chief Curator David Collens and Curator Nora Lawrence.

Outlooks: Luke Stettner,” which closes November 29, is a site-specific for Storm King. Stettner’s work, entitled a,b,moon,d, uses a process called pyrolysis involving biochar, a soil-enhancing, wood-based charcoal. Stettner used biochar to fill a series of trenches already on site at Storm King, and the resulting images a reminiscent of ancient Egyptian glyphs and geometric symbols. The exhibit also includes an indoor photo and sculpture display.
