  Gros Morne National Park of Canada is internationally renowned for its geological features and for its outstanding scenic beauty.

Gros Morne was set aside in 1973 to preserve a 1,805km2 sample of the western Newfoundland Highlands and St. Lawrence Lowlands - a landscape of rugged mountains, fjord valleys, deep glacial lakes, coastal bogs, wave-carved cliffs and coastal communities.

As a result of its outstanding geological features and scenic beauty, the national park was designated as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1987.

Through the Gros Morne National Park Artist-in-Residence Program, artists are expanding the way that visitors and audiences beyond the park boundaries see this special place. By creating works of art from their experiences in the park, artists can reveal meanings and relationships that complement the scientific and educational perspectives presented by park staff.

The Gros Morne residency was initiated by the Art Gallery of Newfoundland and Labrador (AGNL) as part of their outreach programming. The residency provides a stimulating, focussed working experience to professional artists; and encourages artmaking that explores and may even challenge ideas and issues in landscape art.

The artwork produced out of this program has already found its way into exhibitions in public and commercial galleries in Canada, Britain, Ireland and the USA, and has led to production of artists' books, workshops in local schools and artists moving to the park area.


We're compiling a list of links to information about Artist-in-Residence programs and would like to hear from you about a program that you've attended. Send us an e-mail.
