Laurel Park Arts

Laurel Park Arts is the cultural initiative of the Laurel Park Association, a non profit organization that offers artistic, educational, spiritual, and cultural programs to residents of Northampton and Western Massachusetts in the historic buildings and grounds of Laurel Park. A central feature of the park is its tabernacle, a beautifully restored, covered outdoor theater and music venue.

LPA runs programs in Laurel Park with the gracious cooperation of Homeowners At Laurel Park (HALP). For questions about living in Laurel Park, email laurelparkec@gmail.com

Laurel Park Arts is pleased to announce that our Artist In Residence this year will be Gary Orlinsky.

During the summer months, he will be developing site-specific sculptural works in Parker Memorial Chapel and in the Nine Acre Woods. 

Mr. Orlinsky is a sculptor who lives and works in Leverett, Massachusetts. He is a well-known public artist, whose site-specific installations have been shown in museums, parks and gardens throughout the United States—such as the Berkshire Museum, Acton Arboretum, Boston Children’s Museum, the Atrium at Dartmouth College, the Evanston Art Center near Chicago, and Forest Hills Cemetery in Boston. During the off-season he works on smaller scale assemblages and private commissions. He has led workshops at the Chautauqua Institute, for American University in Corciano, Italy, the Smith College Museum of Art, and other sites and institutions. He currently teaches sculpture at Assumption College in Worcester and in the Commonwealth College Honor’s Program at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
