Today I overheard the first tree murmur that it’s been a long summer and maybe a rest would feel good. #autumniscoming #cvforcatskillwaters ...

Hi everyone! This is a new account I’ve started with catskillwaters exploring connections between art and nature. Think of it as Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy, without Jack Handy, deadly serious and only about art and nature. Now you got it! #cvictorforcatskillwaters #artandnature ...

Working on my #catskillwaters project and came across this fresh breath of summer pic. Couldn’t be more grateful for this beautiful land and water. #hudsonvalley #cvforcatskillwaters ...

Scouting potential spots for site specific work for Catskill Waters. I love this place, X marks the spot, and yes, the pay phone works. #cvforcatskillwaters #catskillwaters #chrisvictor #sculpture #installationart #contemporaryart #fineart ...

Owner Paul Hnatiw tells us—his store is the only gun AND convenience store in the county. The name of the store, 3 Goldens, refers to Golden Retrievers he used to breed. He no longer does that professionally but he still has his own dogs.

Chris showing his sketch to Paul. I had no idea how he would respond to our idea. Politically he is conservative and a gun rights advocate, with some strong opinions that would place him at the opposite end from positions found in typical supporters of contemporary art. But Paul got right onboard!

Chris will be documenting this process and his interaction with Paul.

Conceptual sketch for his installation by Chris Victor. In this version he uses cinder blocks and water bottles as main components, but anything can change...

Much of the material for this piece is from Paul’s sand pile which was washed up on his property in hurricane Irene in 2011. #catskillwaters #cvforcatskillwaters #sitespecificart #sundown #hurricaneirene ...

Chris, Paul, and his pooch discussing the installation of Chris’s kinetic work. He’ll be making it onsite, in between the payphone (still works!) and coke machine.
