The Essex County Artist Fund is Essex County Community Foundation’s response to the immediate and everyday needs of artists to be supported and lifted up across the county and across sectors. At ECCF, our philosophy is to build a creative ecosystem focused on awareness and appreciation for arts and culture, capacity building, collaboration, and cultural planning. Individual artists and arts/culture organizations are key to this network. www.eccf.org/creative-county.
Artist Name: Kevin Carey – Beverly
Creative Practice: I work as a composer and sound designer in the fields of independent film, experimental animation and video art, and live audio/visual performance.
Artist Statement: My work is concerned with the tradition of audio-visual spectacles across the disparate but intersecting areas of the cinema, the art gallery, and live music events. I approach these gatherings as explorations of community, conviviality, and group transcendence.
