Jim Barrett’s unique style of representation, which employs the use of ink and pastel
to render iconic wildlife and human figures, is a refreshing departure from
traditional painting. His bold use of color and expressive drawing technique
combine to create stunning visual experiences. These works both challenge the
viewer to see Art in a different way, while, simultaneously, engaging our shared awe
at the natural world and its wild inhabitants.
A fun and eclectic show featuring small and affordable work from Karen Thiel, Laura Poinsette, Frank Horiel and Storrs Bishop. New pieces from Lisa Marshall, Jo Newhall, Traci Isaly, Chau Nguyen and more.
Opening reception Friday, November 30, 5:30 - 7:30PM.
This month in our gallery we are featuring a one-man show. James Weikert lives in Bozeman, Montana. His architecture background informs his unique perspective of the forms, colors, and patterns present in the wild places he explores. He incorporates these elements into his illustrations and paintings creating bold interpretations of familiar landscapes.
Art Walk Reception- July 27, 5:30-8:00PM.
This group of local favorites includes Linda Barnsley, Aaron Schuerr, Lyn StClair, Tom Murphy and Joe Wayne. Featuring paintings and photography of America's first (and best) national park and its surrounding ecosystem, the show is sure to have something for everyone.
A group show featuring the watercolors of David Swanson, Robert Spannring, Kurt Cooney, Tandy Riddle and Malou Flato.
We are closing out the summer art walk season by featuring the western landscapes of local fine art photographer, Jay Wesler. Formally educated in photography at Columbia College in Chicago, Wesler has lived in, worked from and shown his images in Montana for the last 16 years. His images have also appeared in national television productions and publications, including Outdoors Photographer and Shutterbug Magazine.
Utilizing the strength of black and white photography, Wesler’s images can capture an engulfing blanket of clouds over a high peak or make a tree appear to be holding its breath. In Wesler’s words, “Nature’s substance and unique form will often produce a formidable visual balance. Composing a scene will take many passes, often reoccurring on weather changes or a seasonal feature and always dependent on the mood of light.”
August 25 - September 19, 2017
"Home Ground" features award winning plein air artist Aaron Schuerr, accompanied in a show for the first time by his 15 year old son, Jasper. In Schuerr's words. "Though painting is largely a solitary endeavor, it is never a lonely one, because I am invited to share in the ineffable mystery of beauty. That is where the art is. Briefly, I am an artist, writer, actor, husband, and father of three wonderful boys. It all gets mixed up until the distinctions are blurred, as they should be." From this vantage point, the oils and pastels included in "Home Ground" explore relationships - to one another, to places and to works that aim to capture their essence.
Artwalk season is our favorite time of year. It’s fun to see great shows in the gallery and to share the enjoyment with so many folks who stop by. Our first shows did not disappoint!
A local favorite, Edd brought a variety of sizes and subjects to the gallery walls. While his recognizable and whimsical style tied the show together, longtime fans enjoyed seeing the details emerging in his newer works. Those trees - there’s just nothing like an Enders tree.
Splitting her time between Austin, TX and the Paradise Valley, it had been some time since Malou had shown in the area and her followers were glad to have such an incredible show to chew on. Her large, signature acrylics shined, but the smaller works and watercolors were equally captivating.
