Georges River Land Trust: AIR Program
georges river land trust: artist in residence program
K2FF and the Georges River Land Trust
Artist in Residence Program
Beginning in 2013, the Georges River Land Trust and the K2 Family Foundation will be co-sponsoring our Artist in Residence Program.
Artists have long been inspired by the natural beauty of Maine, and the midcoast has a particularly long and strong tradition of place-inspired artmaking
In the heart of the region is the Georges River watershed, a 225-square-mile area of mountains, lakes, inlets, marshes, and streams that threads all the way to the seacoast. The 51 mile long river extends from Montville, in Waldo County, to Port Clyde, in Knox County. The Georges River Land Trust (GRLT) was founded in 1987 with a mission to conserve the ecosystems and traditional heritage of the Georges River watershed region through permanent land protection, stewardship, education, and outdoor experiences. Such a mission encourages a sustainable connection between land and people.
The AIR offers professional visual artists, performing artists, and writers the opportunity to pursue their artistic disciplines and to share their work while being inspired by the area’s extraordinary landscape.
