Meet our Artists in Residence
May 28, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Georges River Land Trust and the K2 Family Foundation will introduce their 2013 Artists-in-Residence to the public on Tuesday, May 28, at the Highlands Coffee House in Thomaston. Doors open at 6:30 PM with a presentation at 7:00 PM. Elizabeth Billings and Michael Sacca of Tunbridge, Vermont, are the first participants in this program, which offers professional visual artists, performing artists, and writers the opportunity to pursue their artistic disciplines while being inspired by the Georges River watershed’s extraordinary landscapes.
Billings and Sacca were chosen from more than 25 applicants to be the first artists in residence. They share a similar visual aesthetic, and approach their work from diverse vantage points: photography, cinematography and the use of digital media on one hand, drawing, gathering, weaving and installation art on the other.
During the year, they will organize further events to chart their progress and encourage public awareness of the richness and unique qualities of the Georges River landscape. In addition, the public will be able to share in the development of the final artwork through their blog, which will visually document their travels, reflections and thoughts.
