Maine Farmland Trust announces Joseph A. Fiore Art Center

A New Artist Residency Program in Jefferson, Maine

Jefferson. Maine Farmland Trust, a statewide organization that protects farmland, supports farmers, and advances farming, recently partnered with the Falcon Foundation in Damariscotta to create an artist residency program on a protected farm.

The Joseph A. Fiore Art Center at Rolling Acres Farm in Jefferson will be launching its first residency for Maine-based visual artists in the summer of 2016. The program aims to connect the creative world of farming and art making, and evolve the dialogue between human and environment within the context of our current culture and time.

I will be in residence for the month of July along with fellow Maine artist  J. Thomas R. Higgins.
