Also referred to as the Pine Mountain Collective Group Show, this event will benefit the work of Kentucky Natural Lands Trust (KNLT). In 2015 KNLT, in collaboration with writer Erik Reece, and visual artist and writer Zoe’ Strecker, hosted two artists’ retreats on Pine Mountain, a 125 mile forested ridgeline in far southeastern Kentucky. The retreats were aimed at engaging artists in the Pine Mountain Wildlands Corridor project, and showing them the splendor of the mountain in hopes they would be inspired by their experience. The group has become known as the Pine Mountain Collective, and this event will highlight work produced by the group and inspired by their collective experience on the mountain and more.
