Carol Hartman’s exquisite, large oil paintings are inspired by her childhood days on her family homestead overlooking the Missouri River, specifically near Fort Kipp and Fort Union. That time developed a deep yearning to learn more about those people who have come before her and how they changed that landscape.
Carol has now been on a long-term exploration and visual documentation of those early homesteading days in the region, the many trails used to travel to Montana, and how it has altered the American soil.
For over twenty years Carol Hartman’s interactive electronic installations, dealing with biases and prejudices, were shown from California to New York to the Chicago Arts Institute. Since 2009, her current series of large oil paintings have been exhibited in multiple galleries across the U.S. and Europe.
