"Big Risks: Creative Discoveries" presents sculptures by Peter Strasser at the landmark GARNER Historic District in Garnerville, New York. The material Peter Strasser works with is big, really big. And while the endeavor to create something from a whole cut tree requires taking risks that might not turn out as anticipated, the possibilities can be endless.

Strasser takes the risks of exploring the possibilities in working with massive trees to create monumental sculptures while still bearing the essence of trees.

ArtsWestchester has awarded Peter Strasser the 2019 Arts Alive Individual Artist grant. This show will feature a number of large new abstract sculptures created from locally sourced trees that had fallen and were salvaged specifically for this show.
