The pilot program of the Appalachian Forest Stewardship Residency is now complete.
There were two work days of invasive species pulling (bush honeysuckle, autumn olive);
cyanotypes of invasive species;
a jamboree in town;
visits to the Mennonite bakery & grocery;
drinking & pictionary;
two stranded artists at the airport and one amazing friend who put them up for the night until they could get a ride down;
a visit to Serpent Mound and Fort Hill earthworks;
and a temperature drop of 45 degrees in one day.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, read more about the art residency here. Or email me, lexiestoia at gmail dot com to be added to the list for next year. Dates for the 2020 residency will be in late October/early November, announced shortly.
Would you do an art residency right before, during, or after a presidential election? Drop out for a little bit?
