Niki Ketchman

In her most recent works, Niki Ketchman has taken her hair-like forms one step further and has begun to use synthetic hair as her primary medium in conjunction with wire and other materials. Ketchman relates the use of hair as a medium to using ones own body (or part of it) to make art. In similar vein, she has found inspiration in the artifice of hairstyles in terms of shape and form in particular.
Niki Ketchman received a BFA from Fairleigh Dickinson Universty and an MFA from Montclair State College. Over the past three decades, Ketchman has participated in over numerous solo and group shows the world over at notable galleries and museums, such as Gallery New World, Düsseldorf, Germany; Humphrey, Pindar Gallery, and the Kouros Gallery all of which are in New York City, NY. Her work is included in private, corporate, and museum collections throughout the United States including: DeCordova Museum, Lincoln, MA; The National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; Pepsico, Purchase, NY; General Electric Corporate Headquarters, Fairfield, CT & Washington, D.C. In 2004, the Katonah Museum presented a one-person exhibition of her outdoor sculpture and drawings. She resides in New York City.

We have received many questions about whether the opening of state parks includes Grounds For Sculpture. Please note at this time we remain closed. 

As a nonprofit organization we are not part of the state parks system and we are not yet permitted to open. We are watching the situation closely. When we are permitted to open, we are determined to do so in way that is safe for our staff, volunteers and visitors.

We know the value of being out in nature and experiencing art is all the more important and restorative during these uncertain times. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to experience GFS later this season when we are permitted and able to reopen. We are tending the garden to ensure we are ready when the time comes.
