Casper photographer selected as new Artist-in-Residence at Zion National Park

Photographers shooting at Zion's West Temple in winter.

Zion National Park is pleased to announce Chuck Kimmerle as the new Artist-in-Residence. Chuck, a photographer from Casper,will spend a month in the park creating art that is relevant both to his style and the surroundings.

Chuck Kimmerle is best known for his quiet and unassuming photographs of the northern plains, which have been published in numerous magazines and catalogs as well as exhibited nationally. His most recent exhibition, “The Unapologetic Landscape,” has been touring for more than year.

The Artist-in-Residence program offers professional artists the opportunity to live and work in the majestic splendor of Zion National Park. The works completed under this program will contribute to the public understanding and appreciation of Zion National Park.  It is the park’s hope that works produced during this time will characterize Zion for present and future generations and offer park visitors and the general public the opportunity to see America’s heritage through the creative vision of contributing artists.

On Monday, November 7 at 8:00 p.m., Chuck will present a lecture at the Zion Lodge about his experience as Artist-in-Residence in Zion National Park. He will also give a presentation for Art Insights, the Southern Utah University Department of Art and Design’s weekly lecture series, on Thursday, November 3 at 7:00 p.m.
