DG House is the Reimagine Montana resident artist at Traveler’s Rest, sponsored by Montana State Parks. During her residency, she has been producing ledger art pieces and colorful paintings inspired by the water of the river, the wildlife in the valley, the ancient Native American history associated with it, and Lewis and Clark history.
Her goal “in participating in the Reimagine Montana Artist in Residence program is to bring a contemporary native vision to the conversation and join the Native American traditionalists whose work survives in hide paintings, ledge drawings and rock art... To be present in historic places will provide the catalyst for new reflection of its story and encourage personal artistic exploration.”
House has been a guest artist in both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, and has exhibited at the Holter Museum of Art, the Missoula Museum of Art, the Yellowstone Art Museum and the CM Russell Museum in Montana as well the Phippen Museum of Art in Prescott, AZ, the Heard Museum in Phoenix, AZ, the Eiteljorg Museum of Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis, IN and the John Clymer Museum of Ellensburg, WA. House’s work is in permanent collections worldwide including rock stars Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney and Michael McDonald, Grand Teton National Park and the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC.
Over her 20 year career, House has painted a life-size fiberglass buffalo bull and calf for the City of West Yellowstone, MT, participated in the CM Russell Museum Art Auction and mastered the quick draw on the square for the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival. She created the album art for the Grammy nominated CD, “If I Were an Otter,” created a kite which is travelling the Buffalo Jumps nationwide and flying during special presentations, and is currently animating a movie on the buffalo of Yellowstone National Park.
