The Caldbeck Gallery in Rockland will kick off its 2014 summer season on May 2, with “A Year in the George’s River Watershed”, an exhibit of drawings, installations, photographs, and weavings by the George’s River Land Trust’s 2013 recipients of their Artists in Residence program, Elizabeth Billings and Michael Sacca of Tunbridge, Vermont.  A reception for the artists will take place from 5 – 8 p.m. on First Friday, May 2, The exhibit runs through May 31.  Also celebrated will be the Land Trust (GRLT) and the co- sponsors of the residency, the K2 Family Foundation of Vermont.  Together, these organizations selected Elizabeth Billings and Michael Sacca for this first year of the GRLT’s new residency program.  The two artists spent their year exploring the vastness of the watershed, which stretches out over a 225 square mile area of mountains, lakes, inlets, marshes, and streams that feed the St. George River, a river that extends for 51 miles from Montville in Waldo County, all the way to Port Clyde, in Knox County.    Billings will show weavings, drawings, and installations of watershed materials, while Sacca will share his photographic journey.
