Collaborative Concepts is a not-for-profit arts organization based on the idea that professional artists working together can achieve artful accomplishments and provide the community with exceptional cultural experiences. Since its founding in 1999, Collaborative concepts has curated more than 40 exhibitions in galleries and outdoor settings in the Hudson Valley.
For its second season, Collaborative Concepts at Saunders Farm invited local, national and international artists to place sculptures throughout 100 acres of a historic farm in Garrison, NY. Located across the Hudson River from West Point, the rolling hills and wooded glens of Saunders Farm culminate in panoramic views fo the Hudson Highlands. Black Angus cattle can be seen grazing peacefully in stone-walled pastures. More than 50 site-specific artworks were chosen to complement the farm's spectacular vistas. All the sculpture installations are temporary, and many works are for sale. The exhibition is free and can be viewed from 10 am to dusk, September 5 until October 31. Visitors should dress appropriately for a walk in the country.

Testimonial from Jeff Blimps, artist and owner of the "Tree of Life, Art Foundry"
"When 20 years ago I was assembling my foundry shop, I needed advice and materials - both of which were hard to come by. Then I discovered Saunders. I got the information I needed and was able to get the right products. From the beginning, I relied on Saunders to replenish my shop supplies and to find out about the best and most useful products on the market. To this day, I enjoy working with Saunders and am very thankful for all their help and services.
Testimonial from Roxanne Mariniello, of Sculpture Situations
As a professional mold maker of seven years, I have dealt with many vendors and found that it has been in my best interest to do business exclusively with Saunders Foundry Supply. I have been delighted with their service, products and knowledge. I can rely on their business because of their great efficiency in attending to my needs. Saunders has always been there for me when I needed them, they have helped my business grow and I am always greeted with a friendly voice!
Testimonial from Liz Stine of Stine Sculpture
"As a commercial toy/giftware sculptor, the importance of material reliability is key. I have been using Saunders Foundry as my primary materials distributor for over 15 years, and not only can I depend on them for always having my products in stock, but when that emergency inevitably arises, many times, Saunders has gone that extra mile for me acting as a direct liason with the manufacturer to resolve my crisis! Janice's courteous commitment to her clients makes Saunders a pleasure to do business with, often a rarity in the industry. Thanks Saunders!"

Testimonial from Moonica International, Pakistan
Saunders Foundry believes in going above and beyond their customers satisfaction. We have had a tremendous experience with Saunders Foundry. We imported Precision Casting Lost Wax machinery from Saunders, and they sent their chief technical engineer to setup their machinery in Pakistan. The transfer of technology, as well as the training, was absolutely phenomenal. Moonica Corporation, being in the manufacturing business for over 31 years, has never come across a more professional and technical staff than Saunders Foundry. TOP
