"Genius Loci: South", in progress
This is my "Genius Loci: South" painting in progress, as seen in the article from the Queen City News today; it is looking pretty conventional and acceptable, before it starts looking extreme...which is my goal!
History Center has artist-in-residence
Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Lance Foster is the new artist-in-residence at the Helena/Lewis & Clark County History Center, 58 N. Last Chance Gulch, on the downtown Walking Mall (the Power Block).
Foster is at work on his “Genius Loci” series of large canvasses, which explores the commonalities between Native American and mainstream systems of belief. He paints in the center on Fridays and Saturdays, 10 am - 2 pm, and welcomes visitors. His exclusive “Helena” T-shirts are being sold only at the center.
Foster is an adjunct instructor of art and archaeology at UM-Helena and is an alumni of the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe and Helena High School’s class of 1978.
