VSOP Projects Presents “Art Basil” at Treiber Farms
September 17, 2022 @ 11:00 am – September 18, 2022 @ 6:00 pm
Art Basil 2022 is Greenport Gallery VSOP Project’s second annual, multi-faceted presentation of food and farm-related art at the Old Barn at Treiber Farms in Peconic.
The event explores the fertile intersections of art and agriculture, with a weekend of community projects, curated art exhibitions, performances and food-themed artwork alongside plants, produce and farm goods.
The event includes a large-scale community art project of hand-painted farmstand signs; an installation of Shiburi and natural dye linen banners by Lesley Obrock, Kym Fullmer and Stephanie Pinerio; optical illusion rock sculptures by Brooklyn artist Betty Rubble; mushroom spore prints by Peter Treiber, Jr,; “Bee Bodega,” a pollinator sculpture by Hannah Bigeleisen; Functional ceramics by Melissa Gabrielsen and Elizabeth Eisenstein; a wall of prints; one-on-one readings with Liri, a Balkan Herbal Folklore Medicine Intuitive; the grand opening of the Treiber Farm STore; a basil-lined mini-golf putting green and a commemorative, limited edition screenprint by Double Wonderful.
Most of the artwork, plants and farm goods will be available for purchase, and a portion of the weekend’s proceeds benefits CAST.
