Artist in Residence

Artwork at the Mercantile Library has been a part of what we do since 1841 when R.H. Parry gave us an oil portrait of Andrew Jackson. While that piece has been lost to history (likely a fire) we continue to build the collection with our Artist-in-Residence program.

The Mercantile Library named artist Sara Caswell-Pearce its first-ever artist-in-residence in January 2018.

Gee Horton has been the artist-in-residence since 2019. You can view his photo realistic portrait of Peter H. Clark, the Library’s first African-American member in the Reading Room. For more on Horton’s residency, visit here.
