The Visual Art Society of Texas welcomes Harlan W. Butt as our March speaker March 6, 2019. Harlan is an artist with over 40 years of experience working in metal and enamel who specializes in making vessels inspired by the human relationship to the wilderness and the natural environment. At the meeting, Harlan will present the historical connection between artists and our National Parks.
“The historical connection between artists and our National Parks has existed since their inception. In fact, artists were fundamental in the establishment of many of the parks including the first National Park, Yellowstone, in 1872. For the past fifteen years, I have been traveling to various National Parks and collecting imagery and data, which I then use to create vessels in metal and enamel that reflect my observations of the geography, flora, fauna, and essence of those locations.”
During his talk, he will also discuss the Artist-in-Residence programs at the National Parks and what they offer for creative people.
