This summer, the grounds of Chesterwood—the summer home of Daniel Chester French (1850-1931), best known as the sculptor of the Lincoln Memorial— in the Berkshires is host to an exhibition of contemporary sculpture called Out of Site, organized by Sharon Bates. Deborah Zlotsky is among the fourteen artists showing work. Though known as a painter and drawer, Zlotsky created a time-based participatory work called “Just a Minute!”
Curator Sharon Bates helps with the installation of Deborah Zlotkys’s “Just a Minute!” at Chesterwood in May 2017.
“Just a Minute” at Chesterwood, 2017, invites viewers to slow down, use their senses, and experience the natural world in a way that draws attention to a small area that could easily be overlooked.
