Check out this great video about “A Timless Legacy: Women Artists of Glacier National Park”.
Here’s even more information about the show from the Hockaday Museum:
The Hockaday Museum of Art announces the premier art event and exhibit of “A Timeless Legacy – Women Artists of Glacier National Park” that will be on exhibit August 13 through September 10, 2016. This landmark show will feature a mix of landscape, wildlife, Native American, and Park subject matter in a range of sizes. The August 13, 2016 sale event will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 PM at the Museum and is a major fundraiser for the Hockaday. A portion of every sale will directly benefit the Museum, helping build its art acquisition fund and continuing the Hockaday tradition of bringing world-class art and cultural exhibits to the Flathead Valley. The show offers works that will appeal to novice and seasoned collectors and enable all to purchase incredible original art at reasonable prices. The list of participating artists for this year’s “A Timeless Legacy” includes nationally known names Deborah Berniklau, Shawn Cameron, Stephanie Campos, Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey, Carole Cooke, Sheila Cottrell, Lisa Danielle, Joni Falk, Deborah Fellows, Lori Forest, Linda Glover Gooch, Terry Cooke Hall, Ann Hanson, Julie Jeppsen, Krystii Melaine, Darcie Peet, Stacey Peterson, Heide Presse, Elizabeth Robbins, Sharon Standridge, Kathryn Stats, Carol Swinney, Sonya Terpening, Linda Tippetts, Echo Ukrainetz, Rachel Warner, and Sarah Woods.
The Timeless Legacy annual exhibition began in 2015 when curators Tabby Ivy, Denny Kellogg and Elizabeth Moss assembled an unprecedented display of works by pioneering women artists of Glacier National Park, showing them alongside the paintings of four local contemporary artists. “A Timeless Legacy – Women Artists of Glacier National Park” became one of the Hockaday’s most lauded shows, receiving national attention and inspiring a documentary film and commemorative book. PBS will air “A Timeless Legacy” in conjunction with the 100th anniversary celebration of the National Park Service. The Hockaday Museum of Art endeavors to continue the timeless legacy of painting Glacier National Park with a second show that features the works of 27 of the nation’s best western women artists. Participating artists in “A Timeless Legacy” are represented by the top art galleries in their field, and have shown their works in acclaimed museum exhibits and gallery shows around the country.
Concurrent with this year’s “A Timeless Legacy”, an exhibition on Elizabeth Lochrie and her works will be on display. Elizabeth Lochrie’s family was so moved by the first A Timeless Legacy and the Hockaday’s efforts in raising the awareness of Lochrie’s contributions to the art world that they arranged to gift the Museum with 26 of her early paintings. The Hockaday will run the biography exhibit “Elizabeth Lochrie: Woman Alone in her Way”, guest curated by artist Jennifer Li, August 4 – October 8, 2016.
Creating a success story for the Hockaday Museum of Art, “A Timeless Legacy” is anticipated to become a major annual fundraising event and bring new artists and collectors to northwestern Montana to experience Glacier National Park in its entire majestic splendor.
