The Chilkoot Trail

March – May 2018 “The Chilkoot Trail”
Yukon Arts Centre – oil paintings and sketches by Daphne Mennell
In the summer of 2014 I had the great pleasure and honour of being chosen
for artist-in-residence on the Chilkoot trail. There I did a number of plein
air acrylic sketches, pencil sketches, and approximately 1,000 support photos
were taken by friend and “sherpa” Louis Schilder of the entire trail. (Louis
and Lee, my husband, helped carry some of my gear as well as support me on
the trail as I went along so that I could focus on the art, thus the title of
“sherpa”). I gave workshops to interested campers at Sheep Camp as well as
Lindeman City campsite and gave art talks both in Skagway Alaska and in
Whitehorse after the residence was over.
