A strong, clear vision: Linís Storm King Wavefield.

Storm King Wavefield

Maya Lin: Bodies of Water

Storm King Art Center, Mountainville, permanent; through Nov. 15

Speaking of the sea, you might want to take advantage of this nice fall weather to drive down river and see Maya Linís Storm King Wavefield as well as her exhibition in the Art Center. Wavefield is best viewed from the top of the hill rather than from the side. From above you get the full effect of the rolling waves and you donít have to look at the traffic rolling by on the Thruway (although you do unfortunately still have to listen to it). If you approach from the East just make a right after the always fabulous Andy Goldsworthy stone wall.

While Linís Wavefield is permanent, the smaller work on display in the Art Center is only up for another several weeks. Included in the exhibition are maquettes and sketches, as well as other sculptures and wall pieces. Works like Pin River, Drip/Drop, and Dew Point show her dexterity in executing smaller works. They also show her fascination with the many aspects of water and earth. Storm King Wavefield is an impressive piece and a welcome addition to an already magnificent spot.
