RECEPTION for RE-Adorning Stover Preserve

July 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Free

Join us for a reception with the artists during the re-ADORNING of Stover Preserve on Sunday July 7!

Peter Walls and Allegra Kuhn generously offered to reinstall the “jewelry for the trees” from their 2023 installation as a fundraiser for future Art Gone Wild Residencies. “Our 2023 Art Gone Wild Residency gave us permission to PLAY and explore new ways of seeing, making, and reaching our audience through our exploration and discoveries on the Stover Preserve in Belfast, Maine. We both come from a sculpture background and what we created last year brought us back to our roots, taking our Art off the wall and into the trees!

A portion of our forest play was to imagine rethinking how trails are presented to the public.  Taking cues from the jewelry industry our pendants are icons for the Stover Preserve itself. Having nature as inspiration is integral to art, design, and creativity and so we spent time on the preserve during our residency and let it speak to us. Creating this “jewelry” for the trees focuses public attention on how special these preserved lands, flora, and fauna are.  We hope that the pendents let you experience the forest differently, see its magic, and celebrate it for how special and beautiful it is—whether this is your first time seeing the pendants or you had a chance to see them last year!”

The pendants will be offered for sale and can be picked up after the 3-week adorning (weather dependent) is complete. The pendants have been created to withstand living outdoors permanently, possibly mounted on a 4” x 4” post in one’s personal forest or yard.  They are also wonderful pieces to bring indoors and hang on the walls in your favorite sacred interior space.

Each pendant will be offered at $650 each with 50% of the sale going to fund future “Art Gone Wild” residencies. For an additional fee the Artists will work with you to hang your work in your desired location (this does *not include any extra materials needed for installation).

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. The artists are also installing pendants on the Pen Bay Community Wellness Trail on the campus of Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport on June 10.
