Artist in Residence Summer Installation and Field Work
August 12, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
On August 12 and 13 (9 am – 4 pm) at the Appleton Preserve, George Mason will present his on-site summer installation as part of a year-long artist residency with the Georges River Land Trust. In addition, Mason will be creating new relief works with clay, plaster, casein paint and vinyl cut outs. At 11 am and 1 pm each day Mason will make a point of being engaged with his materials so visitors will have an opportunity to see him at work, and to ask questions.
From noon to 1 pm each day, you are invited to bring your brown bag lunch and have a picnic near the shelter. Park at the trailhead on Route 105 and walk in to the shelter in the field.
Mason is the third artist in residence sponsored by the Land Trust and the K2 Family Foundation, and plans to create on-site installations in the watershed in each of the four seasons to observe and reflect the seasons’ transformative influence. A centerpiece of Mason’s work as the artist in residence will focus on the potentially powerful interface of art and land to help build, confirm, and sustain a sense of community, and to be a voice of encouragement for getting out on the land. We’ve also posted more information and a video about George.
