Upcoming exhibitons NEW BEGINNINGS: AN AMERICAN STORY OF ROMANTICS AND MODERNISTS IN THE WEST March 25 – July 18, 2021 The Yellowstone Art Museum is honored to be included in the tour of the Tia Collection’s New Beginnings: An American Story of Romantics and Modernists in the West. This is our second Victor Higgins, Yellow Trees and Adobes; c. 1925; oil on canvas collaboration with the Tia Collection. This exhibition focuses on Taos area artists who began to experiment with interpreting the West through a modern lens. Like the early Montana Modernists, these artists pushed boundaries, adapted new ways of thinking and seeing, and found their own version of place-based Modernism. Many have had national influence and a direct impact on our own region. The exhibition’s artists include Joseph H. Sharp, who set up a studio on the Crow Agency, not far from Billings, Montana. John Marin and John Sloan directly influenced Montana Modernist Isabelle Johnson. Post-Impressionist Jozef Bakos, like Johnson, strove to imbue his paintings with an emotive quality that went beyond pictorial landscape. They expressed the harsh realities of their often hostile environment in a manner that is not only visually stunning, but evokes the feeling of sublime space. JOHN GIARIZZO: WORK FROM LIFE March 21 – July 12, 2021

John Giarizzo, Grace, 2016, oil on canvas

Rarely does one in our region find an artist who works from life in a classical process from sketchbook to finished painting as John Giarrizzo. Throughout his life as a professor at Northwest College in Powell, and now as a full-time artist, his days involve quiet observation of the human form. This daily art practice has produced numerous sketchbooks and a refined spread of studies and finished paintings, which give homage to themes that have stood large in his life. But what evokes mystery and depth in contrast to these genre-like themes of children at play, men at work, Italians gossiping from benches, and a studio model, are the ever-present Guardians—Renaissance clad figures, pulled from Caravaggio paintings, largely present, but hiding in shadow. The Guardians evoke mystery, and give a nod to the dichotomous aspects of life at a time when contrast and division are ever present among us.

QUICK FINISH artists THURSDAY JANUARY 28, 6 p.m. Ruby Hahn, Acrylic and Mixed Media Artist from Billings, Montana Ruby is a local emerging artist working with fluid acrylics and other mixed media to create large-scale statement pieces. She is inspired by the natural world's inconspicuous relationships and interpretations. Throughout her paintings, she explores the connections between the microscopic and macroscopic realms. Keely Perkins, Artist from Miles City, Montana, Stone’s Throw Pottery “I use a watercolor style of painting, layering lights to darks, all the while keeping in mind the glazes I use are transparent and the thickness to which the glaze is applied will affect the color and overall feel of a piece. I am a sucker for color. I use bright colors and strong lines to create a strong contrast between the main subject and the background.“

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 6 p.m. Rede Ballard, Painter and Printmaker from Gillett, Wyoming “As a Painter and Printmaker the concepts behind what constructs and perceptions go into reality fascinate me endlessly. How and why we perceive reality in space and time the way we do is forever a mystery. No better a place to explore it than on a river in the middle of the Rocky Mountains.” Loretta Domaszewski, Contemporary artist from Bozeman, Montana “As a contemporary artist I create visual poetry and the beauty of the land. The spirit of place is my inspiration for a deeper, psychological interpretation of the journey, the personal quest. I search the essence of the natural environment. I become sensitive to its surroundings. Nature speaks: I savor the scents, sounds, colors, and movement. I respond, interpret, transcend. I am touched by its life! It is life’s energy I wish to express.”

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 6 p.m. Robert Tompkins, Impressionist oil painter from Billings, Montana Tompkins’ style is painterly, in most cases representational, but impressionistic, sometimes abstract, with a respect for color/value, composition, and mass. Interpretation of the subject is the intent of each piece with a healthy respect for the principles inherent in high quality art. Mike Caskey, Artist from Billings, Montana ”My work is a reflection of more common scenes that one would experience just about anywhere in the northwest. Most of my work is local in nature and it allows me to share my passion for this area with the viewer. I chose pastels and oils because they are quick and force me to remain loose.”

Yellowstone Art Auction 53

1 Michael Haykin Tucson, Arizona

Vermilion Fly Catcher’s Dream, 2018 oil on canvas, 24" x 24"

Estimated Retail: $2,600 “I am a painter of realism, whose interest in observing the changing moment provides the structure for my work. While my paintings are composed with formal considerations, I’m most interested in expressing the changing nature of all things...things natural, political, and cultural.”

2 Diana Tremaine Bozeman, Montana

Anima, 2019

oil on canvas, 40" x 40"

Estimated Retail: $8,000 Diana Tremaine’s paintings are inspired by the natural world around her and informed by her own life’s experiences. With her subjects, she strives to elevate the beauty of a moment. With her process, she communicates the complexity and struggle inherent in life. Tremaine creates intentional surface tension, laying opaque paint over transparent paint, juxtaposing clean, crisp edges with subconscious mark making and chaos, allowing subjective pops of color to float gracefully above deeper discord, in order to allude to differing layers and forms of reality.

3 Allen Knowshisgun Billings, Montana

Big Sky Buffalo Lodge, 2018 oil on canvas, 60" x 48"

Estimated Retail: $10,000 Allen is a Crow Indian Artist who grew up on the Crow Indian Reservation. He earned his BA in American Indian Studies from Haskell Indian Nations University and his MA in Indigenous Nations Studies from the University of Kansas. His art reflects his American Indian Heritage.

4 Lee Walker

Red Lodge, Montana

Big Brown, 2018

acrylic on canvas, 60" x 60"

Estimated Retail: $7,000

“I currently reside and work as a full-time artist in Red Lodge, a proud Montanan, I am connected to all things ‘West;’ inspired by magnificent landscapes and traditional cowboy culture. Primarily working with acrylic paints: vibrant, bold, and fast. A love of crisp marks found in tattoos, comic books, and stained glass influences the black outlines. Utilizing metallic paint pays homage to the Wild West gold rush. My goal, upon completing a painting, is for the viewer to become equally reflective and energized.”

5 Gordon McConnell Billings, Montana

Trick Shooter, 2020

acrylic and charcoal on Artforum magazine pages, 42" x 31.5"

Estimated Retail: $2,800

“For more than three decades, in a long series of monochrome ‘action’ paintings, I have been lovingly satirizing and critically interrogating Western art and movies. Lately, I have traded this trademark imagery for colorful, collage-based paintings. In these recent works, I am combining pages of advertising from the elite magazine Artforum with boldly colorful painted passages derived from the offbeat imagery and graphics of Italian western films and posters, as well as mid-20th century comic books and cowboy kitsch.”

6 Robert Mars

Redding, Connecticut

Requiem For Dissent, 2020

acrylic and vintage ephemera on wood panel with UV varnish, 30" x 30"

Estimated Retail: $4,000

“This body of work strikes a balance between chaos and control. Employing concepts of abstract expressionism, I begin with paint layers of loose and dynamic brushstrokes on vintage newspaper. Choosing to either highlight or obliterate this record of events acts as rebellion to structure and order. The vintage newspaper is a bridge to the events of the past; anchoring the work in history. The dialogue between the layers of color - the events glimpsed through the paint - sets the palette for the final composition.”

Yellowstone Art Auction 53

7 Harry Koyama Billings, Montana

Sweet Dream, 2018 oil on board, 12" x 36"

Estimated Retail: $4,000 “My abstract art is a reflection of my approach to life. I prefer images that project positive energy conveying a pleasant or serene message. Simplicity and accuracy is a common attribute of my work.”

8 Robert Royhl

Bozeman, Montana

Night Walk, 2019

oil on masonite panel, 24" x 36"

Estimated Retail: $5,000

“I am fascinated by the landscape and culture of the modern West. I find it an odd mix of science fiction and the various histories that have gotten us to this time and place. It is a place both of wonder and dislocation. I feel a new world is being built out of many disparate things and our job as artists is to give it form.”

9 Kurt Palmquist Bozeman, Montana

Flourish, 2020

oil stain on birch, acrylic on mdf, limited edition series 1 of 3, 33" x 32" x 4"

Estimated Retail: $4,800

“My sculptures explore my fascination with three-dimensional geometric form inspired by my lifelong passion for abstract art, color, architecture, and light. The process is organic: as I work through refining the forms, it becomes clearer and more developed. I develop a form of visual language, sometimes it sings, and sometimes it mumbles. Sometimes I discover a different dialect that opens up new possibilities. The final piece is a result of refining the visual language until it communicates what I’m looking for.”

Yellowstone Art Auction 53

10 Jeremy Rabus St. Louis, Missouri

A Higher Level of Awareness II, 2020 acrylic on canvas, 40" x 30"

Estimated Retail: $2,000

Jeremy Rabus is a painter living and working in St. Louis, Missouri. His process engages several modes of paint application, all with the goal of a color interaction that stimulates the viewer immediately: a sense of emotion and heightened dramatics is condensed, intensified, and expanded across the picture plane. These serve as a pivot point to a visceral, alternate experience of space, time, and perception.

11 John Buck

Bozeman, Montana

The Universe, 2013

Woodblock rubbing — nero and colored pencil, 53" x 36"

Estimated Retail: $6,000

Printmaking has a history of using popular imagery, humor, and politics to critique society. My work is an extension of that tradition, and I frequently study art history and the work of other artists who have pursued these issues in their work. Initially, the woodblocks were not preconceived, but were open and spontaneous diaries of ideas: one thing led to another. Eventually, a central image would evolve from the drawing and that form would be inlayed into the surface of the block. Now, my woodblocks are predetermined by themes that I choose which govern imagery and format. Keeping this process as intuitive and spontaneous as possible is one of the challenges I focus on.

Yellowstone Art Auction 53

12 Dave Thomas Eagle, Idaho

I Shake and I Shiver When I Know You’re Near, 2020 modified concrete & mixed media on canvas, 65" x 48"

Estimated Retail: $5,200

“I’m an abstract painter, doing so for 55 years. From my daily studio practice comes discovery, meaning, content, questions, what’s real or unreal etc. My work projects energy, process, and humor. All I have to say comes from that daily practice, not a preconceived agenda. I’m a process painter looking for an excuse to paint and materials I find often inform the work itself. I’m not an art supply store fan, however Home Depot or hardware stores are my kind of place. Painting is a visual language and it’s not easy to put into words. It’s an emotional experience. I’m looking for some new way of painting or what painting can be. This body of work is about saying more with less, adding and subtracting as the painting progresses. Today’s work informs me for tomorrow’s.”

13 Natalie Christensen Santa Fe, New Mexico

A Good Day, 2018

digital photograph on cotton rag, dibond mount, satin lamina, 40" x 26"

Estimated Retail: $4,400

“My interest is in investigating the more banal peripheral landscapes that often go unnoticed by the casual observer. I choose to shoot in locations that may be viewed as uninteresting or even visually off-putting. Closed and open doors, empty parking lots and forgotten swimming pools draw me into a scene; yet it is my reactions to these objects and spaces that elicit interpretation and projection. This is exciting and challenging for me, to ‘see’ something hiding in plain sight.“

Yellowstone Art Auction 53

14 Karen Garre

Livingston, Montana

Aspens, 2020

acrylic on canvas, 40" x 30"

Estimated Retail: $4,000

“During this era of social distancing, I have had more time to spend in the countryside by myself enjoying the beautiful country we live in. This series of landscapes is the result of the periods I spent enjoying the landscape. The colors are my way of expressing the joy I felt in my heart.”

15 Antonio muniz

Los Angeles, California

The Jump, 2018

fumage, enamel, and oil on canvas, 38" x 54"

Estimated Retail: $7,000

“I paint because I know no thing.” Like the universe, which is constantly contracting and expanding, the paintings have no beginning or end, just an interaction that flows where time is suspended. Smoke constantly changes its form unpredictably in space and Antonio felt it was the perfect medium with which to explore.

16 Neil Jussila

Billings, Montana

Lark Song in Spring, 2019

mixed media, oil on canvas, 22" x 28"

Estimated Retail: $4,800

“The gift lies in seeing a painting, sketch, or drawing come fully alive, in a moment of playfulness and joy.”

13


Yellowstone Art Auction 53

17 Robert Tompkins Billings, Montana

Solitude, 2020

oil on canvas, 24" x 18"

Estimated Retail: $2,500 Robert Tompkins is an impressionist oil painter. His work includes floral, landscape, and figurative/animal from purely abstract to a bridge between realism and abstraction and is featured in galleries throughout Montana. Winner of numerous awards starting with first place in the Greater Yellowstone Juried Exhibition and multiple honorable mentions, he is the previous owner of Purple Sage Gallery and currently working out of his studio in the Montana Power Building in downtown Billings.

18 David Terrar

Gaithersburg, Maryland

Shadows and Gold, 2020

23k gold leaf & acrylic on canvas, 30" x 40"

Estimated Retail: $3,500

“Most people struggle and suffer. After a heart attack, I decided to illustrate my struggle. Winter represents struggle. Trees are a sign of strength and stability. Bright sun coming through the trees shows hope. To illustrate hope, I use 23k gold leaf.”

19 Vicki Conley

Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico

Picnic on the Pecos, 2020 fiber, 33" x 62"

Estimated Retail: $2,500 “I am drawn to the process of art and have thus always enjoyed mixed media; calling on ceramics, printmaking, photography, and fiber to convey my ideas. I often use improvisational machine piecing to capture the feeling of a place or event. Much of my work is an expression of the natural world I see around me.”

Yellowstone Art Auction 53

20 JUDD THOMPSON Billings, Montana

Winter Moon, 2020

acrylic on canvas, 48" x 48"

Estimated Retail: $3,500

Born in 1983, Judd Thompson spent his formative years growing up on the Crow Indian Reservation, gaining inspiration from the art he was surrounded by in his parents’ business, the Custer Battlefield Trading Post. Judd draws inspiration from Western artists, especially Joseph Henry Sharp. Judd uses his passion for color theory to capture the essence of Crow Country in a variety of media. After graduating from the University of Wyoming in 2010 with a degree in Art & Art History, Judd moved to Billings, Montana where he currently resides.

21 Alan McNiel Troy, Montana

Bluebirds in the Bush, 2020 oil on canvas, 30" x 36"

Estimated Retail: $3,200 “My most recent work has some fun with birds, and the idea of balance.”

22 James Urbaska New Fane, Vermont

Pinkish, Lowery Day, 2018 oil on linen, 20" x 30"

Estimated Retail: $3,500 “Paintings speak for themselves.” —Carmen Herrera

Yellowstone Art Auction 53

23 Sandra dal poggetto Helena, Montana

Relict #9, 2017

oil, soft pastel, dyed deer hair on canvas, 12" x 12"

Estimated Retail: $1,800

“The archaic permeates our modern lives — we walk on the archaic; we drink it; we breathe it. It is landscape: sensuous, visceral, alive. As I walk the land known as Montana, something happens to my understanding of art history. The Euro-American point of view breaks down, the iconic horizon dissolves. Parts, details, surprise from all directions and the circle of the horizon surrounds me.”

24 Jill krutick

Mamaroneck, New York

Brook Trout, 2019 oil on canvas, 11" x 16"

Estimated Retail: $1,500 Jill Krutick is a contemporary abstract expressionist whose paintings trace the artist’s joyful path of self-discovery and creative exploration. Using only texture, form, and color, the artist suggests the intense beauty and constant flux of nature: galaxies, skies, blossoms, and tides. Krutick combines abstract expressionist gestures, impressionist luminosity, and personal symbols of change.

25 Shirle Wempner Big Timber, Montana

Wild Mustang, 2019 oil on linen, 24" x 30"

Estimated Retail: $4,600 Shirle Wempner was raised on a horse ranch on the outskirts of Billings, Montana. Her experiences growing up on the ranch resulted in a great appreciation of nature and encouraged her to put to canvas the inspiration she experienced on a day to day basis. Working predominately in oils and utilizing broad-brush strokes and palette knife techniques, she creates a feeling of impressionistic realism, concentrating on a painterly representation of the subject matter.

Yellowstone Art Auction 53

26 Tara Will

Westminster, Maryland

Autumn Sparkle, 2020

soft pastel on canvas, 25.5" x 19.5"

Estimated Retail: $3,200

“As a lover of art and philosophy, I have always been chasing after conveying to the viewer a subject’s essence. I love to try to capture the essence in a way that has moved me at that moment. The energy of the subject shifts with time, season, light, and feeling. Whether it be a landscape or a figure, everything has a feeling to it. That is what I seek to show the viewer.”

27 Dawn Ness

Billings, Montana

Renewed Strength, 2020

mixed watercolor/acrylic on canvas, 24" x 36"

Estimated Retail: $4,200

“I am a self-taught, horse-crazy artist. I use a variety of mediums. My style has a wide range to suit the mood of each piece. My inspiration is continuous. But one constant is that my heart and mind collaborate and allow my hand as a vessel to express those feelings for the piece I am working on.”

28 David mayer

Lafayette, Colorado

Aspen Rise, 2020

oil on canvas, 30" x 24"

Estimated Retail: $3,500 The fine art of David Mayer captures the beauty and color of Colorado and the West, from the high plains to the Rocky Mountains and from the Pacific Coast to the desert southwest. His paintings let you experience firsthand the warm light of a prairie morning, the soft, cool colors of blue-shadowed snow, and the brilliant gold of a high country late autumn day.

Yellowstone Art Auction 53

29 Loretta Domaszewski Bozeman, Montana

Yellowstone Waters, 2020 oil on canvas, 30" x 40"

Estimated Retail: $4,000 “As a contemporary artist, I have a deep connection to the earth as a living body. I see the world through light, layers, and pathways. The spirit of place is my inspiration. I paint to create visual poetry. It is life’s energy and essence I wish to express.”

30 Gordon Skalleberg Santa Fe, New Mexico

Healing Horizon, 2020 oil on board, 35" x 71.5"

Estimated Retail: $9,500 “Often, I paint from old photographs of people unknown to me. Some of my paintings inspire the viewers to create their own stories, their own perspectives. This thrills me. A recent relocation to Santa Fe, New Mexico, with its desert landscapes and open skies, has inspired new imagery in a semi-abstract landscape-style that draws on the quintessential Southwestern features.”

31 Jesse Barrus Boulder, Colorado

High Desert Study #10, 2020 oil on board, 18" x 24"

Estimated Retail: $2,200 Born and raised in Northern Utah, Jesse Barrus has always felt most at home in wild places. He seeks to capture this sense of peace in his work. Currently residing in Boulder, Colorado, with his wife Roxy and their dog Sid, Jesse works as a Fly Fishing Guide and an Art Director while pursuing his passion for oil painting.

32 Brenda Wolf

Great Falls, Montana

Ice Queen, 2020

soft pastel on canvas, 36" x 36"

Estimated Retail: $4,500

“My paintings are all inherently connected to my life and my thoughts. I paint what speaks to me; it’s a personal journey of inner reflection. My animals and I are tangled together in a dance to capture an emotion that is left to the viewer to enjoy and decipher for themselves. Wildlife is boundless like my thoughts. We will dance together for a very long time.”

33 Jane Waggoner Deschner Billings, Montana

From the Silhouette Series (Sitting Dog), 2020

hand-embroidered snapshots, vintage album pages, 40" x 21"

Estimated Retail: $1,900

“I use other people’s family photographs to explore our interactions with the ups and downs experienced in daily life. There is a richness in everyday family photos whether or not they memorialize our particular family’s history. When I collaborate with another’s photo, I tease out a common humanity not confined by time, place, or circumstance. I explore our shared human condition to better understand my own. By asking viewers to look carefully, I renew and transform their experience of looking at old photographs. By engaging them with other people’s family photos, I alter the way they see their own. They come to realize, as I did, how universal this form of expression is — and how precious.”

34 Soojin Choi

Minneapolis, Minnesota

The Three Fates, 2020

ceramic, wood, acrylic paints, 68.5" x 75"

Estimated Retail: $2,800

“Human emotion comes from the interplay between people, physical space, and emotion itself. The ambivalence of human emotion occurs through unresolved and confusing situations in external and internal matters. An ambivalent moment reveals itself to me, and I depict that gray area of humanity. I recount these unsettled situations so viewers can empathetically encounter the emotions of the human forms I create.”

35 Rudi Broschofsky Ketchum, Idaho

Waiting for the Signal, 2018

spray paint on deep edged panel with resin, 42" x 32"

Estimated Retail: $3,500

Situated somewhere in between representation and abstraction sits the works of artist Rudi Broschofsky. Taking a Street Art approach to Western Art makes his process completely unique to both genres. His paintings are constructed entirely out of spray paint, which is accomplished through a calculated process of creating meticulous stencils with an X-Acto knife. A stencil may take upwards of 120 hours to create and sometimes may only be used once. From nearby, the subject matter is nonrepresentational but with space the composition becomes unmistakable.

36 Sheila Miles

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Down the Road, 2020 oil on canvas, 36" x 36"

Estimated Retail: $3,800 “I want to capture the beauty and a sense of time and place, focusing on light and shadow and the abstract qualities in the puzzling shapes that warp over surfaces. I use the colors and tones, along with bright contrasting whites and am engaged in the process of ‘the more I see, the more I look, and the more I see,’ and a never ending quest to understand the complexities of the visual world.”

37 J. Jie Li

Brooklyn, New York

Fire and Desire IX, 2018

watercolor on arches paper, 40" x 45"

Estimated Retail: $2,800

“Traditional Chinese scholars like to express their feelings through beautiful depictions of nature, thus placing a significant emphasis on the innate ties between man and the environment in which he lives. Likewise, I too hope to draw on those connections albeit in regards to the dilapidation of our natural surroundings. Unlike the odes to beautiful nature of the past, I hope to call attention to the current destruction of nature, perhaps in turn as a reflection of the inner decay of man.”

38 Guillaume & Isabelle Beau de Lomenie Cody, Wyoming

Martin, 2018

acrylic print with floater frame, 33" x 50"

Estimated Retail: $5,700

“We are a couple of journalists and photographers. Through the École des Beaux Arts in France, then through a collaboration of nearly 20 years with the main French equestrian magazines for Isabelle, through the profession of hunting guide throughout the world, then thanks to a collaboration of nearly 20 years also with French hunting magazines for Guillaume, we have developed the same passion for nature photography, horses and for their relationship with humans.”

39 Julio Cesar Banasco Rego Miami Springs, Florida

The Color of Silence, 2018 sanguine/canvas, 31.5" x 27.5"

Estimated Retail: $3,000

“In every painting, I construct and deconstruct myths of a high poetic value, reflection of the experiences of an obsolete system that exterminates ideas and thoughts, which is Cuba. This is where life is delayed like a timeless pendulum, making me a chronicler without knowing it. From the silence, from the grief of my people, catching shadows and dreams to transfigure them in the hereafter is my intent.”

40 Rudy Autio

Missoula, Montana

Orange Haired Girl, 1982 acrylic on paper, 31" x 26"

Estimated Retail: $3,800 Born in Butte in 1926, Rudy Autio was at the forefront of the contemporary ceramics movement; his ceramic vessels with painterly surfaces became iconic for their striking composition. He executed many architectural commissions with Peter Voulkos and was a founding artist at the Archie Bray Foundation.

41 Lynn Thorpe

Rapid City, South Dakota

Cloud Bowl, 2018 oil on canvas, 26" x 48"

Estimated Retail: $3,000 “Through many years of contemplating the relationship between earth and sky, I have played with it in a variety of ways. I continue to do so, as the possible relationships appear to increase rather than decrease. My approach varies from simple observation to intentional manipulation. I am always interested in the idea of a work and in making that idea beautiful.”

42 Jon Lodge

Billings, Montana

Cumulus Undulatus Interruptus (Cloud #351), 2020

carbon particle substrate, surface tension, gesso on canvas, 30" x 24"

Estimated Retail: $2,000

“I minimize control to maximize accidents. The interaction of gesso and surface tension with layers of carbon particles generates a system that creates the abstraction—reconciling skill and randomness.”

43 Christine Vanderkaap Austin, Texas

Babou the Ocelot, 2019

ballpoint pen on strathmore paper, 23" x 29"

Estimated Retail: $3,200

“I’m a classically trained figurative artist living and working in Austin, Texas. I mostly work in watercolor and ballpoint pen. I start with the fluidity and vibrancy of watercolor, then work over it in ballpoint pen in an almost hyper realist fashion. Taking over 100 hours on my large studies, I like to focus on texture and the way light falls on my subject.”

44 Catherine Eaton Skinner Seattle, Washington

Passages V, 2015

archival print on paper, encaustic, and oil on panel, 24" x 24"

Estimated Retail: $6,000

“This series represents the still memory of what landscape was and can be through the work of paint and brush. The element of ether or quintessence is honored by the red bindu, a focal point amidst the chaos. The red element (triangle, house, line), captures the elements of air/wind, water and earth, which support life on this planet. The red house outlines the memories that are embedded in ourselves. This work hopefully provides places for mindful meditation.”

45 Gregory Wilhelmi Roundup, Montana

The King is Dead, 2018 oil on canvas, 24" x 36"

Estimated Retail: $2,400 “I try to use my talent as an artist to say something about who we are, who we think we are; where we have been, and where we hope we are going.”

46 Rede Ballard Gillette, Wyoming

Red Lodge Ray, 2018 oil on paper, 14" x 16"

Estimated Retail: $2,400 “The concepts behind what constructs and perceptions go into reality fascinate me endlessly. How and why we perceive reality in space and time the way we do is forever a mystery. No better a place to explore it than on a river in the middle of the Rocky Mountains.”

47 Gesine Janzen Bozeman, Montana

This Quiet Creek, 2018

hand-bound accordion book of ten wood block prints, 20" x 18"

Estimated Retail: $7,000

“This Quiet Creek is a hand-bound book of ten wood block prints. The prints present a selection of the lakes, reservoirs, rivers and streams, dams, levees, and empty creek beds that I observed on my travels across Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona between 2017 and 2018. Water is represented in its many states: low water and high water, frozen and unfrozen, stagnant, free-flowing, and dried-up. Its power and abundance are presented alongside evidence of manipulation, fragility, and scarcity. Water crashes and roars over rocks, it laps at river banks and meanders slowly across the land. I am drawn to it because of its enduring nature: it keeps going over time, on and on, eternally finding its way. This work is also intended to provoke thought on the many contradictions evident when observing water’s beauty, enjoying nature tourism, and how water is conserved and managed.”

Tambourine Tea, 2020

cast aluminum glass and steel, 34" x 12" x 5"

Estimated Retail: $2,500

“I know everything I am comes from that which is ancient and will continue on in the process of becoming ancient until both ends meet. My pieces are contemplative in the manner of invoking ancient qualities of relics. My invitation is to meet them at the time and place of their origin.”

49 Brad Rude

Walla Walla, Washington

Combined Effort, 2020 cast bronze, 17" x 20" x 8"

Estimated Retail: $7,000 “I am a storyteller. I spin tales that require imagination and curiosity in my bronze sculptures. I portray animals in situations that mimic our own lives, whether at crossroads, or the interplay of the familiar with the unfamiliar. The animals are a stand in for us.”

50 Mark Harris

Carbondale, Colorado

Caught, 2017

bronze, 7" x 6" x 8"

Estimated Retail: $2,200 “The purpose of my artwork is to invoke an awakening of the sensual. Stimulating a perceptual, internal, and intellectual response for the viewer: a visual that speaks to life’s experiences. Creating symbols of universal connection underscores the relationship that one has to another and to nature.”

Bozeman, Montana

Large Covered Jar, 2018

wood fired salt soda glazed stoneware, 28" x 19" x 19"

Estimated Retail: $3,500

“The jar is a form that I have worked with for many years. The shape provides a canvas in the round for a drawing to unfold as the viewer discovers the other side. The molten surface is rich with wonder and a sense of geology. I enjoy the association with the body reflected in the descriptive language of ‘belly’ and ‘shoulder.’ The jar is a familiar archetype from the domestic landscape, helping to create a feeling of comfort and the home.”

52 Paige Bowman Savage, Montana

Double Take, 2017

cast glass, 18" x 18" x 8"

Estimated Retail: $3,500 Paige Bowman itches with creativity. She experiments playfully with fused glass techniques, infusing each piece with her love of color and sense of humor. She steps into the studio each day asking What if? and lets that lead her into the next piece. It is the act of trying something new that excites her, to prove that she can make something better than the day before. In the past she, was a porcelain doll maker, a beader, and now she is teaching herself the magic of fused glass. She takes her inspirations from the natural world, the novel, and the surprising.
