Rockland — Georges River Land Trust and the K2 Family Foundation will introduce their 2014 Artist in Residence to the public Monday evening, June 23, at the Highlands Coffee House, Main Street/Route 1. Doors will open at 6 p.m. with a presentation at 6:30 p.m.

Barbara Bosworth of Stow, Mass., was selected for the second year of the artist-in-residence program, which offers professional visual artists, performing artists and writers the opportunity to pursue their artistic disciplines while being inspired by the Georges River watershed’s extraordinary landscapes.

Bosworth will spend the bulk of her eight weeks of residency in the Georges River watershed from June to August. During her residency, she will make herself available to the public in in two additional events, a “deep looking” workshop and a guided conversation about contemporary landscape photography. The June 23 event provides the opportunity to introduce her past artistic work and meet watershed residents.

Bosworth was chosen from more than 25 applicants. She names the deep forest surrounding her family’s home as the earliest influence on her photography. She works like a naturalist, collecting specimens of flora and fauna, tracing the profiles of mountains and rivers and taking careful measure of the world with her lens. Rather than a simple accumulation of facts, however, her photographs describe a world far richer than the sum of its parts. Her prints are made exclusively with a large-format view camera.

Georges River Land Trust is committed to encouraging citizens to discover the river and care for the land throughout the 14 communities in the St. George River watershed.
