Beginning May 9th, the Helen E. Copeland Gallery will begin a summer exhibition showcasing 3 different high schools’ teachers’ works. The first exhibition, brought to us from C.M. Russell High School in Great Falls will be on display through June 13th. An opening reception will be held Friday, May 20th from 3:30 – 5:00pm. The reception will include the visiting teachers and their students who will be coming for a day trip to visit the School of Arts and Architecture.
The featured artists will be Jackie Van Heel, Kerry Brashear, Tess Jacobs, and Jennifer Pospisil, four women who teach studio painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, and sculpture to K-12 as well as at MSU-Great Falls. The artists work with different mediums from drawing and painting to encaustic collage. Recycled items become the subject matter in works that become personalized into figurative forms.
The Helen E. Copeland Gallery is pleased to host these fine educators, and to showcase their work to their students and visitors to the gallery. The gallery is located in Haynes Hall on the MSU-Bozeman campus. All exhibitions and receptions are free and open to the public. For more information call Erin W. Anderson at 994-2562.
