Big and tall western landscape painter Greg McHuron is this summer’s second Artist in the Park, and he will set up his easel on Saturday, July 11, 4:00-7:00 pm at Colter Bay’s Picnic Area North Beach, in Grand Teton National Park. Look for the gold van and banner.
Artists in the Park, an annual summer painting tradition produced under the auspices of the Grand Teton Association, provides accessible outdoor arts education for all. The sessions are free; just show up, set up your chair, and watch our magnificent landscapes come to life on canvas. You’ll make a good friend of McHuron by bringing him a nice cold beer. It’s hot out there.
McHuron is an award winning plein-air oil and watercolor artist who has been painting full-time in Jackson since 1975. One of the founders of the Artist in the Park series, McHuron’s extended backcountry wilderness painting trips are legend. The recipient of many plein air painting awards, his work can be found at Trailside Galleries in Jackson, the Jackson Hole Visitor Center (McHuron’s work is easy to spot; it’s the giant mural depicting wildlife and alpine terrain), and the National Museum of Wildlife Art, among other venues.
