"Luminous Garden (Aerial)" a large-scale glowing environment made of LEDs, cast resin acorn caps, and wire by sculptor Beth Galston at Boston Sculptors Gallery from April 23 - May 24, 2009 First Friday Reception: May 1, 5 - 8 pm SOWA Art Walk: May 16 - 17, 11 am - 6 pm In Luminous Garden (Aerial), a glowing walk-though environment, Beth Galston creates a magical world inspired by nature and its processes. Using a simple repertoire of materials - colored LEDs, cast resin acorn caps, and tangles of electrical wire - the installation creates a multi-layered three-dimensional drawing. Galston's ephemeral "garden"? is populated by a profusion of spidery plant-like forms, which are reminiscent of nests or webs. Loosely tethered to the ground, they seem to hover in the air and suggest the possibility of movement.
