We partnered with the Hewnoaks Artist Residency and Greater Lovell Land Trust to present their marquee summer event, Wild Light. We illuminated three cabins on the Hewnoaks grounds to exhibit the artworks of dozens of Hewnoaks alumni and local artists. The event also featured an outdoor installation by Portals of Port& and a lawn concert by Hewnoaks alumni Max Garcia Conover. Photography courtesy of Ezrah Churchill and Benjamin Troutman.
"Over the past several years, Wild Light has established itself as a highlight of western Maine’s summer cultural calendar for art enthusiasts, nature lovers, and the local community alike. Showcasing the artistic inventiveness of 20 alumni of the Hewnoaks residency program alongside talented local artists, this unique public program weaves a vibrant tapestry of diverse art forms centered on the intersection of creativity and environmentalism." – Advertiser Democrat
