APPALACHIAN TRAIL CONSERVANCY SYMPOSIUM
Aug 3 - 4, 2017
An exciting event is happening for the art and conservation community in Maine this August; for the first time in twenty years the Appalachian Trail Conservancy is holding their biennial symposium in Maine. It’s especially meaningful as this is the first anniversary of the establishment of our new Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument.
I’m very happy to have been invited to be part of a panel discussion with three other contemporary artists on the role of visual artists in conservation:
"Learning from Contemporary Visual Artists."
Co-sponsored by the National Parks Service,
the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy &
Maine Commission on the Arts
August 3 and 4th, Colby College
"Valuing the Aesthetics of Nature: The Role of the
Visual Artist in the American Conservation Movement"
Eric Koeppel, Artist in the Hudson River style
Evelyn Dunphy, Artist of the Katahdin region
Xio Xiomaro, National Park Service artist-in-residence
John Orcutt, Photographer of Maine coast and mountains
Please see Evelyn's Katahdin Collection of paintings here. Purchase a painting and receive a gift of appreciation, a commemorative print.
