The Future Tents Project: Artistic Collaboration in Freeport with Maine Master Craft Artist Rebecca Goodale and Poet Jefferson Navicky
October 1 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
4:00 PM Saturday October 1, 2022 at Meetinghouse Arts, 40 Maine St. Freeport, ME
For the 2021 Belfast Poetry Festival, artist Rebecca Goodale and poet Jefferson Navicky rented a campsite for a week in September at Wolfe’s Neck Farm Campground near where they both live. For their Campsite Residency, they spent the week creating images of tents, writing swimming poems, doing some actual swimming, and walking the campgrounds in search of new and compelling tent structures to draw. The result of this process was their collaborative project, “Future Tents.” Later that year, Rebecca created an artist’s book of the same name, which included Jefferson’s poem and hand-colored drypoints.
Please join Rebecca & Jefferson as they talk about their collaboration, the importance of self-made residencies, and the general creative spirit necessary to collaborate. Jefferson will read a few poems and Rebecca will exhibit her artist’s book, Future Tents as well as unframed drypoints and serigraphs inspired by Wolfe’s Neck farm and campground.
The public is encouraged to participate in this lively dialogue about artistic collaboration in Freeport.
Suggested admission: $5-10. **All ticket proceeds to be donated to the Wolfe’s Neck Farm Camp scholarship program** ++++And a percentage of the sales from Jefferson’s poetry books and Rebecca’s artwork will benefit Meetinghouse Arts++++
