Bighorn Canyon July Artists in Residence
Bighorn Canyon is in its first year of the Artists in Residence program. They will be hosting five amazing artists and would love for the public to join their artists this summer. There will be two artists in July, two in August, and one in October. Each artist will spend one to two weeks at Bighorn Canyon focusing on their work. At least one day during their stay has been set aside for the artists to share and talk about their work.
Lynn Richardson, a local photographer, will be in the park photographing night time landscapes at the Lockhart Ranch. He will be presenting a sunset/moon rise photography presentation at 8:30 PM at Devil Canyon Overlook on July 12, 2014. Visitors and Photographers are invited to bring a camera and learn from Lynn. During the winter, Lynn will present a detailed power point program displaying his work from his time at Bighorn Canyon.
Karen McLain is the second artist in July. She will be focusing on creating paintings of the wild horses. She will be set up throughout the park. On July 19th Karen will be at the Two Eagle Interpretive trail from 4pm to 8pm. Again, artists are welcome to come and paint with her and learn about her process.
Bighorn Canyon would like to invite all of the local and visiting artists to come out during these programs in July, set up an easel, create art, share technics, and be inspired by Bighorn Canyon.
