October 5 - 25, 2009, guest artist Patrick Dougherty from North Carolina is creating a site-specific work on the grounds of the Bosque School adjoining the Rio Grande Valley State Park in Albuquerque, NM. His woven works have evolved to monumental scale environments which require saplings by the truckloads. He will be using willow saplings harvested from the site and involving the students and teachers in the process.
The public may observe Dougherty's work in progress weekends, October 10-11 & 24-25, 8am-5pm.
An artist talk with Patrick Dougherty is scheduled Thursday, October 22, 4pm in Budhager Hall at Bosque School.
