  The home, studio, and woodland garden - collectively called Manitoga - of modernist designer Russel Wright is located in Garrison, NY. Manitoga is a National Historic Landmark, an Affiliate Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and a World Monuments Watch Site.

Manitoga / The Russel Wright Design Center’s 2015 resident artist is Stephen Talasnik. After spending much of a prestigious artistic career in drawing - his first major sculptural installation was a commission from the Japan Society in NYC. His first large scale, outdoor commission was from the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, NY where he designed and built "Stream", a temporary site specific bamboo structure covering three acres. In recent years, his work has been added to the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the National Gallery of Art, the Pompidou, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

For Manitoga he’s created “Sanctuary” a large-scale installation comprised of woven reed structures that floats in Manitoga's Quarry Pool - it will be on view through November 9th.

This Saturday there is a Members-Only Reception to launch of Stephen Talasnik's "Sanctuary."

On Saturday, May 16th there will be a Sunset Tour of Manitoga at 5:30 led by architect and Manitoga board member Tom Krizmanic.

Stephen Talasnik will lead two "Sanctuary" tours at Manitoga. One on May 30th, the second on October 17th. More information here.
