Winter 2024 Hours: Tuesday: 11 am- 5 pm ; Wednesday- Saturday 11 am–4 pm
This exhibit tells the story of three remarkable women, their friendship and their experiences as life-long artists in and around The Crown of the Continent, Glacier National Park. It is on view from June 29 – September 9, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, June 29 from 5-7pm.
“I am especially proud to showcase the work of Corinne Lundgren, one of the Founding Mothers of the Hockaday Museum and a fine painter whose work has really never been given the attention it so richly deserves. Living several months of the year literally on Glacier’s doorstep, she has had the unique opportunity to view and paint it in every season and mood.
She is joined by long-time friend and fellow painter, Marsha Davis. As fellow travelers, she,
Corinne and I spent several years exploring not only the park but Montana’s blue highways and hidden treasures as well, painting all along the way. We view those trips as some of the most memorable times of our lives. An accomplished plein air painter, Marsha has won many awards for her work and I am very pleased that she is joining us in this exhibit.
Rounding out the trio is Darlene Morgan, whose unique black and white portraits of Native Americans show us another facet of life in and around the park. Her stunning portrayals have captured the attention of many collectors and she has been widely recognized for her talents. Her mother, Merle Olson, was also a Montana painter of note.
They all share a common history and a sense of place. It is the thread that binds Montana’s artists together and it seems a rare and wonderful thing, especially in today’s culture. Please enjoy the show.”
