Texas Rancher & Painter Alice Leese: July’s Artist in Residence
July 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Come see how Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park will inspire Texan Alice Leese, who was chosen as July’s artist in residence. Leese is renowned for her evocative and vibrant oil paintings of western landscapes (including wildfire), nature, and ranch life that she says don’t necessarily capture a specific area, but instead, what it feels like to be there. While in the park, Leese – who works her family’s 100-year-old ranch – will feel the volcanic panoramas, plants and animals, then share her artistic interpretations with the public. Part of Hawai‘i Volcanoes’ ongoing After Dark in the Park series, and co-sponsored by the National Park Arts Foundation and Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. Free (park entrance fees apply).
