In collaboration with Coastal Mountains Land Trust, Art Gone Wild hosts artists at the Head of Tide Preserve for performances and installations of their work free to the community. During our third micro-residency, artwork by artists Peter Walls and Allegra Kuhn will festoon the trails. Through the act of seeing, experiencing, and searching out inspiration in the flora and fauna of Stover and Head of Tide Preserves they will create 12 pendants to adorn some of the oldest trees, the Hemlock and Cedars along the river’s edge of Stover Preserve that have watched over the property and the river itself the longest of any trees on this parcel, for the past 80 to 100 years—the Witness Trees as some would call them. On this riverside “catwalk,” inspired by the preserve itself, they will create a living gallery for visitors to experience.
Peter Walls and Allegra Kuhn are Artists living and working in MidCoast Maine. Peter is known for his shaped panel mural work throughout New England and Allegra for her colorful and joyous abstract paintings. They both find inspiration in the Maine landscape, the creatures which inhabit it, and how humans interact with their surroundings here.
These events are free and open to everyone! No tickets or registration required (but RSVPs are nice!). Children must be accompanied by an adult.
