On July 14th at 7pm I will give a presentation on my artist residency at Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska, at LL Bean as part of their speaker series in the camping atrium.
The Transformative Land- an artist’s view of Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska.
In 2015 Maine wildlife artist Michael Boardman spent 2 weeks as the artist in residence in Glacier Bay Alaska. He spent time studying the wildlife and unique geology of the park with scientists and wildlife biologists, and gained an understanding of the connections between glaciers, phytoplankton and the abundant biodiversity of the region. In a land shaped by water, watercolor is the perfect medium to capture the essence of Glacier Bay, and the talk will include paintings and the stories behind them. Michael will give a presentation on the park, it’s wildlife and the experience of creating art in such an inspiring environment.
