Exciting events are being planned for the Grand Opening during the weekend of June 5-6, 2021.
Information will be posted as it is finalized.
ABOUT THE SCULPTURE TRAIL PROJECT
The Sculpture Trail is a multi-year, education and enrichment project being planned at Laurelwood Arboretum. In addition to docent led tours, school-age and adult educational programs will be developed to expose the broader community to the special relationship between art and nature. Some of the same artists you’ll find at “Storm King” and “Grounds for Sculpture” will also be participating in this project.
The 15 site-specific locations, curated by Scott A. Broadfoot, will serve to enhance the park by complimenting its landscape and serene setting. All sculptures will be available for sale through an exclusive agreement with “Broadfoot and Broadfoot, A Collection of Fine Art,” Boonton, NJ. A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the Friends of Laurelwood and be applied to the installation of a deer fence, ensuring that herds, which have encroached the park over the past few years, don’t further decimate our beautiful shrubbery and grounds.
There are a number of sponsorships available for marquis donors who are interested in participating in a demonstrable way to ensure the realization of The Sculpture Trail project. Click HERE for a list of available sponsorships.
ABOUT THE GALLERY
Broadfoot & Broadfoot, A Collection of Fine Art, is a gallery featuring the work of some 27 artists who represent a broad, cross section of the contemporary art world. The Collection contains the full spectrum of media, from oil and acrylic to color photography, from watercolor to pen and ink, from monotype to mixed media.
One of the most distinguishing features of the Collection is the display of contemporary abstract and representational sculpture. The range of work provides a breadth of choices appealing to the viewer with contemporary tastes. The sculptures range in size from tabletop to large, outdoor pieces. They can be found in residential or corporate settings.
Since its opening in June 1992, Scott A. Broadfoot has owned and directed the Collection’s operation. He carefully selects the artists whom he represents. The individual work reflects the artist’s persona, while the entire collection is a statement about Mr. Broadfoot himself. The body of work is diverse and unique and is clearly focused on the art aficionado, whether he or she is a serious collector or one who just stops in to appreciate fine art.
The Collection periodically offers one person shows, as well as open houses, celebrations for new artists, and a yearly anniversary party. Although the majority of artists in the Collection are from the tri-state area, a number are from across the United States and Canada. Many have national and international reputations.
ABOUT THE CURATOR
Scott A. Broadfoot, owner of Broadfoot & Broadfoot — A Collection of Fine Art, is a seasoned art expert with well established relationships within the contemporary art and sculpture world. In addition to running his eponymous gallery, Broadfoot is the current curator (and designer) of two exciting projects: Natirar, a celebrated restaurant and resort located in Peapack/Gladstone and the Bedminster Farm residential development project, dedicated to environmental sustainability and a healthy and rich lifestyle. Most recently as the Curator of The Sculpture Trail at Laurelwood Arboretum, Broadfoot has brought the same passion that he has demonstrated on his other projects to The Sculpture Trail with the initial installation of James Tyler’s “Brickhead Iyemoja” — the West African protector of all women, governing childbirth, conception, love, and healing.
