Caldbeck Gallery opening, A Year in the Georges River Watershed

Posted April 16, 2014, at 3:15 p.m.

On Friday May 2, 2014, join Georges River Land Trust and K2 Family Foundation at the Caldbeck Gallery for an opening reception of A Year in the Georges River Watershed from 5:00-8:00 PM, artwork created by the Land Trust’s 2013 Artists in Residence Michael Sacca and Elizabeth Billings. Elizabeth and Michael spent portions of last year exploring the Georges River watershed, visiting its preserves and trails, paddling the river and created art reflecting their experience and understanding of this river and land. This is their final show relative to their residency.

The residency program sponsored by the Land Trust and K2 Foundation 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 last year. They share a similar visual aesthetic, and approach their work from diverse vantage points: photography, cinematography, drawing and weaving natural materials from the land. Using these techniques their goal was to visually portray the essence of the watershed and their connection to it.

The show will be at the gallery from May 2 – May 31. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 12-5 PM., location 12 Elm Street, Rockland. Arts in Rockland reception will be held on Friday, May 23, from 5-8 PM. For more information on this exhibit contact the gallery at 207.594.5935, email or visit their website
