Gloaming is the Scottish word for twilight, that sacred in-between time of transition between the activity of our daily routine to the quiet of night and rest. This transitional period is an ideal time to experience works that deal with light in the landscape, from subtle works that glow from beyond the crest of a hill, incongruous neon works in the countryside, or small works approached from afar as mere glints. Perhaps, in effect more definitive than most other landscape art, this show, which ran for one year's duration took advantage of the inherent atmospheric changes due to seasonal attributes. The show looked vastly different with a white background and crisp clear winter days than during the foggy evenings of the fall. The glowing sculptures had a surreal quality in the still, darkened landscape, yet during the summer months, with lightning bugs which glow as frenetic beacons at night, the pieces seemed strangely at home.
