— Some of the work will come right from the land, some pieces are temporarily erected for the exhibit while others have been made into permanent displays.

The work will be displayed out around the property in the courtyard overlooking the lake, in the garden and into the woods, LeClaire said.

LeClaire said the artists have been working together for years and their mutual artistic styles felt a perfect fit to work together on the show.

“We all do work that is pretty penetrating, work that penetrates all the senses,” LeClaire said.

Additional artists are invited to participate. LeClaire said work can be submitted with a $3 to $10 sliding scale submission fee.

Burton’s work will bring a “strong presence” using bigger pieces made from wood, stone, and steel sculptures, said LeClaire.

Cochron’s work will center around the theme of a human’s place in the world and utilizes all the elements of the human psychology. It’s centered around their desire for religion and companionship through wooden totem polls that illustrate religious themes of the modern man, LeClaire said.

While Risley’s work will be less structured, LeClaire said her presence will surround the entirety of the showcased artwork through her wood, fabric, stones to reflect the herbal art specifically planted by the lake.

“Her work will set the place,” LeClaire said.

Most of the work will be for sale, LeClaire said, but work can also be commissioned for particular customers.

For a more comfortable experience, LeClaire wants to remind guests they will be walking from exhibit to exhibit on the farm and suggests visitors wear mosquito spray and comfortable walking shoes.

“We want everyone to have as enjoyable an experience as possible,” LeClaire said.

For more information about the show call LeClaire at 562-3243.
