A great conference where well respected conservationists, artists and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy explored Art and the wild places that can influence us all.

EXCITED to be participating in the Art Land Symposium at Colby College and to see so much attention paid by the media to protecting our natural resources here in Maine. Thank you Bob Keyes and The Portland Press Herald for this lovely article today.

PRESS RELEASE

EVELYN DUNPHY, ARTIST, TEACHER, ACTIVIST

EVELYN DUNPHY STUDIO & GALLERY

August 2, 2017

Maine artist Evelyn Dunphy will be speaking on the panel "Learning from Contemporary Artists" on Friday August 4rd 2017 1:00pm at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Symposium co-sponsored by the National Parks Service, Colby College & Maine Commission on the Arts.

The symposium will be hosted at Colby College, Waterville, Maine from August 3 - 6th and involves significant voices in today's land conservation, art and education worlds. This is the first time in twenty years that the ATC conference is being held in Maine and Evelyn joins Erik Koeppel, Xio Xiomaro, and John Orcutt onstage from 1:00 - 2:30 on August 4th. Each will show examples of their work, talk about their artistic practice and how their work fits into the theme of "Artists and Conservation."

Additional presentations include sessions on the role of Law in protecting scenic landscapes (professor of Law John Copeland Nagle, Notre Dame University, School of Law), The Hudson River School – Artists and the American Conservation Movement, The psychology of Natural Beauty (Sean Gobin, Capt. USMC ret.) and more.

For a complete schedule see http://www.artlandsymposium2017.org/

Evelyn Dunphy will also be leading a unique overnight field trip to the Katahdin region where she conducts workshops each year. The group will visit the site of Frederic Church's summer camps on Millinocket Lake, then hike 3.5 miles to Katahdin Lake Wilderness Camps for an overnight stay. This wilderness camp was the focus of the recent and important Katahdin Lake Campaign and is now part of Baxter State Park. Frederic Church painted there several times, as did Marsden Hartley, James Fitzgerald and others.

Following in the footsteps of these artists, Evelyn Dunphy has continually painted and advocated for the Katahdin region. As an active Maine artist and teacher, Evelyn Dunphy quite seamlessly moved into the role of Katahdin activist; tirelessly working to protect and call attention to the natural wonders that make up the Katahdin region.

For her efforts and advocacy, she received The Natural Resources Council of Maine's People’s Choice Award for conservation. She was also awarded the first ever Artist in Residency in Baxter State Park and she continues to advocate for the protection of the beauty and cultural history of the region.

Plein Air Painting at Home
I think it is a bit odd that I paint out of doors everywhere I go, but not so often when I am home. There is always so much to do in the studio when I am here, and I think I am just too comfortable in my own surroundings so that I am not looking for paintin...

It's fun to Paint Big!
I have really been enjoying painting large watercolors. For the longest time I resisted anything bigger than a full sheet. You know all those reasons - no room for them, costs too much to frame, no one has room on their walls, etc. Mary Whyte told me to pai...

A Story And a Painting
I have a story for you. Get comfortable, pour a cup of tea or a glass of wine, and sit back and relax for a few minutes. I know it's a busy time; a little quiet time will be good. On a remote peninsula of Ireland lives a tiny white-haired lady whose name is...
