Village Canoe [2019 EXHIBITION] Video Tour

The Village Canoe is a multi-phase art project to create art and community from outdoor experience. Through an open-call invitation, 10 artists across various disciplines and practices were chosen to paddle, camp, and make work along Penobscot River and Bay in August 2019. Following the 10-day journey from river to sea, the artists had nearly a month to create and complete work before hosting a free, public, interactive art exhibition of the work inspired by the artist residency experience. The show took place over the final weekend in September 2019 in a temporary wood-and-plastic greenhouse structure along the waterfront in Heritage Park in beautiful, downtown, Belfast, Maine.

Old Man – Sauce is Matisse (Dir. Taj LeBlanc)

We shot this music video a while ago when a couple of my artistic friends all converged in rural Virginia for a spell. This was the first time I had worked on a concept shoot for a music video, and it was a really rewarding experience. Shout out to all of the people listed below, they are all great creative minds and a total blast to work with.
