Creative Conversations – Jessica L Bryant – The Wild Side of Artists in Residence @ The Art Spirit Gallery
Mar 17 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Join us to learn about the wild side of artist residencies with local watercolorist, Jessica L Bryant!

Jessica L Bryant is a frequent Artist-in-Residence for the National Park Service and the 2018 AiR for the Idaho Conservation League. Wilderness/outdoor AiR positions offer adventurous artists the opportunity for unparalleled experiences that provide unique depth of knowledge and context of subject matter to inspire work. Jessica will talk about her current residency, focused on Idaho’s rivers that fall under the protection of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, which was sponsored by Idaho Senator Frank Church and celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. She will also share some of her experiences with the park service and the positive impact that AiR programs have for these natural spaces, the artist, the local community, and the artist’s home community.

A small sampling of Jessica’s diverse, often unexpected, experiences in residency for the NPS have included: assisting with a bison roundup, learning to identify and discover fossils in the field, spotlighting and trapping black footed ferrets for research (the most endangered land mammal in North America), working with scientists in the wilderness of Alaska’s Arctic lagoons, participating in sled dog training, field work with endangered Desert Tortoises, field education on highly protected archaeological sites, and countless miles of hiking across a vast diversity of ecosystems.
