Portals is a temporary outdoor public art exhibition featuring large scale work by five artists: Jim Coates, Danielle Krcmar, Andrea Thompson, Bevan Weissman, and Leslie Wilcox. Portals conveys tangible or symbolic entrance to new life and each artist is creating imaginative new work specific to the site and theme out of sticks, stones, clay, steel screen, and wood.

For hundreds of years, sculpture has been an essential feature in cemeteries where artisans were commissioned to create individual and family memorials. Portals is planned to revive the century-old practice of engaging artists to design work for this picturesque setting. Free artists reception Sunday, Sept. 12 from 3 – 5 pm, with guided tour at 3:30. Rain date: Sun. Sept. 26.
