BIG HORN — The Brinton Museum presents the first in a series of new exhibitions, Brinton Artists in Residence, beginning this September. The 2019 Brinton Artists in Residence show features six diverse, nationally-recognized artists who were invited for two-week residencies in 2018 to create art en plein air.

This year’s inaugural exhibit, on display in the Jacomien Mars Reception Gallery beginning Sept. 7, includes nearly 50 works in oil, pastel and watercolor by Victor Juhasz of Averill Park, New York; Jessica Garrett of Glendale, Arizona; John Potter of Red Lodge, Montana; Denise LaRue Mahlke of Waco, Texas; Terri Wells of Austin, Texas; and Jacob Aguiar of Scarborough, Maine.

The Brinton’s Artists in Residence program allows artists the opportunity to sketch, draw and paint on The Brinton grounds and other scenic locations throughout the area. Resident artists are featured in a group exhibition in the fall of the following year of their residency. A reception to meet and visit with the 2018 invited artists takes place at The Brinton Museum Sept. 7 from 2-4 p.m. The artists’ reception is free and open to the public.

The Brinton Artists in Residence exhibit continues through Oct. 20. This exhibition is made possible by generous contributions from the Edwin T. Meredith Foundation, the Richard Hammer Trust, the Tucker Foundation and Fine Art Connoisseur.
