When Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) celebrated its100th Anniversary in 2015 – 2016, artist Trine Bumiller was preparing a stunning exhibit based on her coveted Artist Residency at the park the previous year. A selection of her 100 paintings for 100 years is on view at Cozens Museum through April 22.

For generations, American artists have had a love affair with our national parks, particularly in the west, from Ansel Adams at Yosemite to Thomas Moran and Albert Bierstadt at Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain, Grand Canyon and more. Honoring the relationship between the arts and parks, RMNPs Artist Residency program is one of the longest running programs in the national park system.

The program offers professional artists the opportunity to pursue their discipline surrounded by the park’s inspiring landscape. For the 2-week residency at RMNP, artists stay at the William Allen White Cabin near Estes Park. Currently the Artist Residency program is on hold while RMNP renovates the cabin.

Trine (Danish, ‘tree-na’), who lives in Denver and Fraser, used her residency to immerse herself in the outdoors to sketch, photograph and examine nature up close while hiking, one of her Grand County passions. Trine’s artistic focus to interpret the patterns and shapes of the natural world led to her prior artist residency at Denali National Park in Alaska.

As an outcome of her artist residency at RMNP, Trine created 100 paintings for each year of RMNP and each is named for a year, from 1915 to 2015. She painted obsessively and painstak-ingly applying 50 transparent oil glazes, over a year’s time. She worked on several of the 100 paintings simultaneously, “a brushstroke becomes a painting, becoming a series of 100 paint-ings.”

From their Fraser home, Trine and her husband ski and hike most every weekend.
In her interview as one of “Colorado’s 100 Creatives” in Westword, Trine discussed her interest in showing her work and that of others in different spaces outside the traditional gallery realm. Showing her Centennial at Cozens Museum, in her 2nd hometown of Fraser, helps fulfill those goals.

Trine exhibited 3 pieces from the 100 paintings series at the 2016 Art Out of Thin Air group show at Cozens and gave an engaging talk on her art process. Trine is looking to help create art spaces outside of large urban areas where people can see, make and become involved with art. Perhaps GCHA can help with these visions for Middle Park!

GCHA is proud to present 30 of Trine’s work and artistic vision from RMNP and Grand County. Prices for the paintings start at $600. Trine is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. After graduating, she lived and painted in New York City. Since moving to Colorado, she has exhibited her work internationally in galleries and museums including the complete100 Paintings for 100 Years RMNP at McNichols Building in Denver. She is represented by Robischon Gallery in Denver, Zg Gallery in Chicago, and Kathryn Markel Fine Arts in New York, where she just had a solo show.
