This week the Dead Hare Radio Hour welcomes Sarah Anderson Lock to the show as a roving reporter and artistic instigator. She will be helping us to cover various goings on in the Northern reaches of the Hudson Valley from her post in Gallatin, NY.
For her first show she proposed bringing a group of artists together who recently completed the New York Foundation for the Arts MARK program. This program is a series of professional development workshops that teach artists the ways of the world, covering everything you don’t learn in a typical fine arts education. Having been an alumni of the program I (Matthew) was excited to hear more about how things have progressed.
We begin with a conversation between Sarah, Matthew and Greg Lock (Sarah’s husband, artists and MARK 08 alumni) about the program. Then we have a group discussion with members of the just completed MARK 11 group from Woodstock - Nathan Meltz, Keiko Sono, Thorsten Dennerline, Michael Forster Rothbart, and Suzy Sureck. Our conversation focuses on the role that nature and technology plays in their work.
