Photographers have been creating art in national parks since the late 19th century – but did you know the National Park Service offers photographers the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while residing within our nation’s most inspiring landscapes?
In fact, the National Park Service offers Artist-in-Residence (AIR) programs in over 50 national parks – and selected artists are provided park housing for the duration of their residency.
Interested? Want to know how to apply? Well, you are in luck!
You are invited to participate in the first in a series of FREE lectures at The G2 Gallery presented in partnership with Samy’s Camera.
Our first lecture is presented by Bob Killen, a National Park Service Artist-in-Residence. Bob is also an Adobe Certified Instructor, President of the Mojave National Preserve Artists Foundation, and Director of National Park Service Photographic Expeditions.
For our first lecture, we asked Bob to specifically help us understand the ins and outs for applying and obtaining an Artist-in-Residence (AIR) grant. He will also explain the many benefits for being selected as a National Park Service Artist-in-Residence.
Join us at The G2 Gallery this Wednesday, July 26 from 6:30 – 8:30 for this informative lecture. The G2 Gallery is located at 1503 Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice, CA.
The event is free and open to the public but we do ask your to register at Eventbrite.com .
