Sculptor Patrick Dougherty works with twigs and branches to create site-specific installations. Woven together and held in place by tension, Dougherty’s sculptures have a whimsical quality, inspired by his childhood adventures exploring the woods of North Carolina. At the Gibbes, Dougherty has created an installation titled Betwixt and Between in the museum’s glass atrium, creating a visual connection between the interior gallery space and the lush outdoor garden.

All materials for the installation were collected locally using sustainable, environmentally-sensitive practices. Betwixt and Between is the result of a large-scale community effort involving volunteers to collect materials, prepare them for display, and weave the sculpture in the museum’s atrium. In 2011, the Gibbes awarded Dougherty the prestigious 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art Prize.
