Boy, have I forgotten about my blog. It has been a busy 3 or 4 months! I neglected to post the invitation for our 100 Mile Radius Show at Paris Gibson Square! The show opened in August, and now will hang a few more weeks. As Fran Carlson so aptly put it, “The inspiration for this show lies in the High Plains of central Montana that these artists call home. Though their styles and media are diverse, they share a strong love for this place. They all wrestle with the complex responses engendered by a place that can be heart achingly beautiful and tediously difficult all on the same day. This show explores the variety and commonality of their artistic responses.” If you haven’t seen the show, we’d love it if you would!
On another note, I attended “The Artists’ Ride” in South Dakota in August. It was absolutely incredible – so many models, animals, wagons – period costume and sets – fantastic for the western artist! More about that later… I hate to say too much, I want to keep it for myself! I do have a whole new cache of research photos, which is everything!
