Artist in Residence Program
This year, the Discovery Centre Art Gallery is hosting the exhibit Boundary|Time|Surface by former Artist in Residence, Sydney Lancaster. Inspired by the Green Point geological site, the artist working with geologist John Waldron has created a body of work “which explores human efforts to understand and divide up geologic time. This exhibition conveys an appreciation of the scale of human experience in relation to the vast extent of time and space represented in Gros Morne National Park.”
Artists spend three to six weeks in Gros Morne National Park, exploring, photographing, sketching and participating in the park’s interpretive program. By creating work from their experiences in the park, artists reveal meanings and relationships that complement the scientific and educational perspectives presented by park staff. While at the Gros Morne Discovery Centre check out the art gallery and ask park staff about upcoming public programs by the current Artist in Residence.
