Glacier announces 2018 artists-in-residence

Print Article

Four artists have been selected to participate in the 2018 Artist-in-Residence Program at Glacier National Park. The artists are Matthew Harrison, Emily McIlroy, Meg Leonard and Jamie McHugh.

The program offers professional artists the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while being surrounded by the park’s inspiring landscape. Each artist will pursue their work while in the park, and then engage and inspire the public through multiple outreach programs. The public programs will be related to their experience as the artist-in-residence and can be demonstrations, talks, exploratory walks, or performances. Digital images of selected work produced as a part of the residency may be used in park publications, websites and presentations for education and outreach.

Harrison is a vocal music specialist who plans to translate the epic landscapes and rich local culture into choral literature for all ages.

McIlroy uses the practice of drawing and painting as a means of connecting inner and outer landscapes. During her residency, she will focus on the act of walking as part of her artistic process.

Leonard hopes to explore climate change, melting glaciers and residual ice fields, looking for revealed patterns and colors as ice melts into streams and lakes.

McHugh is a multi-disciplinary artist who focuses on the interplay between the inner landscape of the human body and the outer landscape – or larger body – of the natural world. He is thrilled to immerse himself in the Glacier Park ecosystem to discover all that a new, unique terrain can inspire and generate.
