  • "Grandmother Earth" by Linda Weintraub

CHRCH Project Space is not an art gallery. Think of it more as a laboratory where artists engage with the community to create living projects. Memorable projects include Kate Hamilton's It's a Big World in There, which experimented with giant clothes rigged to cables. Participants could pull on the ropes and the giant white shirts took on the shape of a billowing, Eileen Fisher-clad giant.

In early May, artist, author, and curator Linda Weintraub began installing Grandmother Earth, an arrangement of natural materials at CHRCH Project Space. The initial sculpture Weintraub created rises 10 feet toward the ceiling and 10feet along the floor. The surface is completely covered with organic matter from local woods—seeds, mushrooms, acorns, bark, twigs, bones, shells, moss, clay, and lichens. Over the course of the exhibition, artists and nonartists will have the opportunity to enlarge the artwork by contributing their own additions, in one-foot squares, to Grandmother Earth. By the closing date, the sculpture will cover the entire building. A closing reception will be held on June 30.

Grandmother Earth will be exhibited at CHRCH Project Space in Cottekill through June 30.
