Dillon artist receives watercolor award
Dillon watercolor artist Jessica Glenn was the recent winner of the President’s Award at the Montana Watercolor Society’s water media fall juried exhibit in Kalispell.
Her painting featured a light-filled representation of the stick game at a Native American powwow in Arlee. Glenn, a signature member of the society, has works on display at The Tendoy Fine Art Gallery in Dillon as well as other galleries around the state.
“I’m pleased to have won this prestigious award," says Glenn. “This show is open to artists across the United States, and to get juried in is exciting, let alone receive this recognition.”
Twenty-two artists from around Montana gathered for the society's workshop also held in Kalispell, including Jean James, also a Dillon artist, who was awarded a scholarship to attend.
