"After Apple Pruning" by Linda Hoffman


  • The Gallery at Villageworks 525 Massachusetts Avenue Acton, MA, 01720 United States

After Apple Pruning an Exhibit of Sculpture: 'twigs and branches pruned from the orchard, grafted roots, bronze figures, string, rope, copper wire, a cider press barrel, cloth and spun wool'

In 2001 Linda Hoffman, a sculptor, moved to a small farm in Harvard with an old apple orchard. For this exhibit she combined her love for the orchard with her passion for art by (re)using apple prunings, the branches she lops and saws from the trees each winter. Hidden Fruit, Snowy Branches, and A Grafted Life, are just a few of the new sculptures by Hoffman and friends, a collaborative exhibition with apple branches, agricultural artifacts, natural fibers, and Hoffman’s sculpted figures.
