About the Exhibit
Glacier Reflections is a well-deserved retrospective exhibition of three living legacy artists, each of whom has devoted a lifetime to painting Glacier National Park. Local artists Corinne Lundgren, Marsha Davis and Darlene Morgan all present rich histories of painting the people and places of the Park.
Corinne Lundgren has been painting in the Park for more than 50 years. The Lundgren family owned businesses in West Glacier’s Apgar village, so her intimate insights come from living nearly half of every year literally right on Glacier's doorstep. As one of the founders of the Hockaday Museum of Art, she has been an instrumental force in creating the artistic culture of the Flathead Valley. Corinne’s name is first on the list when it comes to her local knowledge and expertise in painting The Crown of the Continent.
Marsha Davis has been a devoted painter of Glacier Park for many years. Her love of Montana led to many road trips with Corinne and Karen, intent on painting every nook and cranny of the state. An accomplished plein aire painter, Marsha has participated consistently in the Hockaday’s annual Plein Aire Paint-out.
Darlene Morgan has been drawing and painting as far back as she can remember. Her role model was her mother, Merle Fisk Olson, renown sculptor and painter of the Park. Darlene’s love of portraiture and the Blackfeet of East Glacier has inspired her masterful ink wash paintings.
The exhibition is curated by Karen Leigh, a well-known watercolor painter and longtime adjunct professor at Flathead Valley Community College. She has exhibited as part of many group artist exhibitions at the Hockaday, and her individual show, Journey: A Painter’s Life, appeared at the Hockaday in 2016.
