The Hockaday is inviting 5 men and 5 women artists from each country, Canada and the USA, that share the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, to come paint the Park. A list of participating artists is expected to be announced in the spring of 2017.
Each artist will paint both Plein air and in studio, have 1-2 miniatures and 1 larger studio piece from each of the national parks on exhibit. Also included in the exhibition will be sketches, journals, and video, a sort of 'traveling scrap book' of their time working on the project. Artists will be allowed to paint and work on the project from March, 2017 through early July, 2018, allowing every season for painting. All works will be created specifically for this historic project and will not be shown elsewhere before the exhibition.
Events such as workshops, demonstrations, and lectures during the opening weekend and throughout the exhibition are in planning stages. Visit the website, www.hockadaymuseum.org to find out more about this premier, historic event.
