Winter Art Maker Series: Nicholas Oberling
6:00 PM
Hockaday Museum of Art
The Hockaday invites everyone to the first session of its 2017 Winter Art Maker Series featuring renowned oil painter Nicholas Oberling. On Thursday, January 12, from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM, Nicholas will set up an easel and paint in the Hockaday's main gallery for this illuminating and engaging session of live art making. Attendees observe a work in progress and benefit from the artist's commentary and insight. There will be plenty of time during the 90-minute session for guests to interact with the artist.

Nicholas Oberling was educated at Cornell University and studied painting under the atelier system at The Art Students League of New York for a decade. His work has been featured in shows at the Hockaday Museum of Art in Kalispell, CM Russell Museum, and at the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art in Great Falls, and the Holter Museum in Helena. He is a founding member of the Montana Painters Alliance. Oberling has been Artist in Residence at Glacier National Park and the Helena National Forest, and has been a Top 100 finalist at the Art for the Parks competition. Nicholas is an active volunteer in promoting youth art education, and his biography is included in Who's Who in America.

The Hockaday encourages guests to arrive early as the Winter Art Maker sessions tend to fill up quickly. Hockaday members are admitted free of charge and non-members will be asked to contribute an admission fee of $15. Memberships to the Museum start at $35/year for Seniors and College Students.

The Hockaday Museum of Art is located in the cultural district of downtown Kalispell at 302 Second Ave East. It is housed in a 1904 Carnegie Library building that appears on the National Register of Historic Places. The Museum is a private nonprofit organization, open year-round, Tues-Sat from 10am-5pm. The mission of the Hockaday is to enrich the cultural life of our community and region, and preserve the artistic legacy of Montana and Glacier National Park.
