Artist in Residence Final Installation
May 6, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
George Mason has been the George’s River Land Trust Artist in Residence since May of 2015, and has explored the Georges River watershed both on his own and with Land Trust members and friends who have introduced him to many of their favorite spots.
The Georges River Artist in Residency is sponsored by the K2 Family Foundation, based in Port Clyde. K2 partners with other non-profits to fund efforts in arts, education, and sustainability. “Partnering with the Georges River Land Trust has allowed us to support artists, while also celebrating the deep connection people feel between the land and the arts, especially in places like Maine,” said Margot Kelley, K2’s Executive Director.
Mason said that what he observed from his Summer Installation at the Land Trust’s Appleton Preserve was pivotal in prompting the body of work that will be part of his final installation and show to be held at the Caldbeck Gallery in Rockland from May 6 – 28. The opening is scheduled to coincide with this spring’s “First Friday” art walk, May 6th from 5-8pm.
Mason is the third artist in residence sponsored by the Land Trust and the K2 Family Foundation. 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.
