Public Invited to Brown-Bag Luncheon Presentation
WEST GLACIER, MONT –The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center at Glacier National Park is hosting two brown bag luncheon presentations in October, both featuring Artists-in-Residence currently at the Park. The brown bag luncheon presentations will be held at the Community Building in West Glacier.
Jill Haley- Composer
Jill Haley, musician and composer, whom writes pieces dedicated to the National Park Service will be playing oboe and English horn accompanying Susan McDevitt on piano Monday, October 24 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the park's Community Building in West Glacier. Some of the new pieces she will be performing are "Ripples on Two Medicine Lake," "Rainfall on Huckleberry Mountain," and "Running Eagle Falls."
The performance will be featured live on the parks @glaciernps Facebook and Periscope accounts.
This last spring she released the recording, "National Park Soundscapes," which is a collection of pieces about twelve National Parks and is dedicated to the National Park Service. The music highlights twelve Parks from Acadia National Park to Zion National Park and also includes a new piece that was written about Badlands National Park when Jill was an Artist in Residence there in 2015.
Craig Barber- Tintype Photographer
On Thursday, October 27th, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the park's Community Building in West Glacier Artist-in-Residence Craig Barber, a Tintype photographer, will display his work and talk about his tintype portraits of farmers, craftsmen, and rangers. Along with his images, he collects oral histories to create a visual and written record.
Barber writes, "I use the tintype process for its sense of timelessness and beauty. Lately I realized our national parks and the rangers who manage them are similar to farmers and rural land. Both are stewards of our land - farms and parks. I decided to start a new project documenting the park landscapes and rangers with my camera."
These presentations are free and open to the public.
