Fishermen’s Alliance Selects Local Filmmaker Selected as Artist-in-Residence

CHATHAM – The Arts Foundation of Cape Cod and The Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen’s Alliance have announced the appointment of a Cape Cod native to craft a digital narrative for the region’s fishing community.

Filmmaker Stone Dow of Barnstable has been selected as the Fishermen’s Alliance’s new artist-in-residence. He will be tasked with shooting and editing original footage highlighting local fisheries as well as managing the Alliance’s existing archives.

Arts Foundation Executive Director Julie Wake said tapping into the region’s talent made sense for this creative initiative, an approach that the Alliance’s CEO John Pappalardo wholeheartedly endorsed.

“I remember John saying, ‘I don’t want to hire a marketing agency. I want something special that only an artist can deliver,’” Wake recalled. “That’s when I knew we were on the same page and that this collaboration was just the beginning of something beneficial for Cape artists.”

The one-year position will culminate with an Arts Foundation event showcasing Dow’s work.
