Christel Veraart has received a 2017 Connie Boochever Artist Fellowship created to support and recognize Alaskan artists of exceptional talent. The fund was established by the Boochever family to honor Connie Boochever, a longtime supporter of the arts. Through this fellowship Christel will advance her latest project Retrospections, a series of sound-memories evoked by different landscapes in the world.
Retrospections is a confluence of landscape and sound, of memories that unfold and shift from the inner world into an outer experience. Retrospections is a means to connect to different landscapes in the world, – a series of sound-memories, lived out in a constellation of relatedness, anchored in the land.
