In 2015, Mary Edna explored Glacier National Park as the Sperry Chalet Artist in Residence. The result: fourteen plein air oils, numerous photographs, books, batiks on silk, and large-scale studio oils. Her upcoming exhibit, Gateway to Glacier, also has a scholarly component, bringing attention to conservation of this cherished wilderness.
Geoscientist Orrin H. Pilkey provides text to accompany Mary Edna’s art. Both have been featured by National Geographic, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. The austerity of geology is revealed in the monumental landscape when hiking to the retreating Sperry Glacier and the Continental Divide.
