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 this 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 The 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 longer than any other trees on this parcel, for the past 80 to 100 years — the “witness trees,” as some call them. 

On this riverside “catwalk,” inspired by the preserve itself, they will create a living gallery for visitors to experience.

Walls and Kuhn are artists living and working in Midcoast Maine. Walls is known for his shaped panel mural work throughout New England and Kuhn 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. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
