The latest gallery interview is with Amy Kirkland of the Altitude Gallery. Altitude features art in a number of media, including glass, jewelry, painting, photography, pottery, woodworking, and others.
1. Please introduce yourself and your exhibit space.
The Altitude Gallery is located on Main Street, in the old Azteca space across from the Army-Navy store (with the horse). It’s nine feet wide by fifty-five feet deep.
2. Do you have a defined mission or niche?
The work in the gallery tends toward nature-based contemporary.
3. What local/regional/national mix of artists have you had?
We have about 50% local artists, and 50% regional, meaning Montana and surrounding states.
4. How do artists usually connect with you?
I find them, and they also find me. I find artists mostly through art shows and the Internet. They might find me by dropping in or hearing about us from a friend.
5. How should an artist looking for a show or advice best approach you?
The best would be to call first to set up an appointment. Ideally, I’d like to see one finished piece and a portfolio I can look through. A CD or web site is also good.
6. Anything else you’d like to tell artists and art aficionados?
I’m really happy to be part of the downtown Bozeman gallery scene!
