BERNARD LANGLAIS Restoring and Preserving the Legacy
Created and Produced by Yoke and John DiGiorgio
Nature’s Art Productions LLC

Naturalist, filmmaker and author, Yoke Bauer DiGiorgio’s work tells stories of the human connection to wildlife and the natural environment.  Yoke collaborated with her husband John, an accomplished fine art and wildlife photographer, in creating this short documentary and telling the story of Bernard Langlais.

 

Renowned Maine artist, Bernard Langlais, created over 3,000 indoor and outdoor works of art during his lifetime, many of them constructed in response to his surrounding landscape at his Cushing property.  Unique, edgy and very creative, he was also well known as a painter in NYC where he lived during the 50s and 60s.  This 10-minute documentary tells the story of the collaboration of three organizations – Colby College Museum of Art, Kohler Foundation Inc., and Georges River Land Trust – and the effort to restore and preserve his artistic legacy.
