Bighorn Canyon is in its fifth year of the Artists in Residence program. Fourteen artists from around the country and locally, applied for the Bighorn Canyon AIR program. Five amazing artists were selected. “The samples the artists sent with their applications were amazing. We had a hard time picking our top five and would have loved to have them all, but we just don’t have the accommodations,” said Chief of Interpretation Christy Fleming. Each artist will spend two weeks at Bighorn Canyon focusing on their work. At least one day during their stay has been set aside for the artists to give public programs and to share and talk about their work.
The artists selected for the 2018 Bighorn Canyon Artist In Residence program are Carol Hartman of Red Lodge, MT, Arletta Pappan of Steelville, MO, Steve Whitfield of Oklahoma City, OK, David Hunter of Fresno, CA, and Cathleen Casey of Milwalkie, OR. Their combined portfolio will allow visitors and other artist to learn more about photography, oil painting, nature sketches, cinch making and acrylic painting. The artists will be in the park from the end of May through September.
Artist In Residence programs will be announced through the summer. Bighorn Canyon would like to invite all of the local and visiting artists to come out during the public programs, set up an easel, create art, share techniques, and be inspired by Bighorn Canyon setting.
