Seven Bridges Foundation houses a unique collection of modernist and figurative paintings, glass art, sculpture and photography in a beautiful country estate setting. The landscaped grounds, woodlands and waterways are manicured just enough to enhance the sculpture, yet still evoke the beauty of the natural surroundings. The property provides a serene and scenic setting to enjoy the diverse collection of sculptures by emerging and established artists. The collection is a vibrant reflection of life inspired by humanity and creative expression.
Seven Bridges has become an innovative venue for artists, students, scholars and other visitors to gain insights into figurative art and the work of 20th century masters and emerging artists
Through vision, creativity and purpose, Seven Bridges has become an intimate collection of fine art and a vibrant, innovative venue for artists, students, scholars and those who seek to gain a better understanding and appreciation of art. Seven Bridges exhibits significant contemporary art with an emphasis on emerging and established living artists. The collection includes large scale paintings as well as bronze and stone sculptures. Many of these works have been created by artists that have been referred to as the “New Old Masters.”
Gallery 1 houses more traditional art with the use of oil on canvas or board and sculpture. The Foundation believes it is important to support stone and bronze work as it represents the origin of sculpture and is almost prohibitive from a cost and P transport standpoint for most artists.
Gallery 2, built in 2011, reflects more contemporary work. This gallery focuses on hard edge or photorealism art. The artists’ utilize bronze, stainless steel, aluminum, painted steel and co-ten. The Foundation’s entire glass collection is on display in this gallery. Sand cast, blown and laminated works are represented.
There are already plans to expand into yet a third gallery. Richard McKenzie’s vision for the future and belief in supporting present-day artists remains strong. He has skillfully created Seven Bridges to be an important venue for understanding figurative and contemporary art now and for generations to come.
