STORIES: Wilbur Invitational @ The Emerson

Five Montana artists share eccentric and imaginative stories utilizing non-traditional materials. A reception will be held Friday, Sept. 5, beginning with a gallery talk at 5:30 and refreshments 6-8 pm.

Great Falls ceramist Ken Kohoutek features the daily life of several odd and hilarious characters in his brightly colored, ceramic wall tile sculptures (see above left).

Bozeman artist Kenda Minter and Missoula artist Francis Pearson (see right) both recycle found objects discovered in every day life to create highly textured wall-hung and freestanding sculptures.

Former Missoula artist, MA Papanek-Miller layers appropriated pop culture imagery often inspired by children’s toys in her translucent and mysterious paintings.

Bozeman artist Chris Turbuck, a recent MFA graduate of MSU’s School of Art, creates enormous 3 dimensional cartoon narratives that explore our common insecurities with drawn figures that are extraordinarily true-to-life.

    Hello Kenda.. This Mark Hardison of the:
    “Mark and Ozzy” days.
    Your name popped into my head. As I rearrange my apartment here in the East Village of NYC.. I thought I’d quit what I was doing and google you. ( ADHD and Computers are a ‘good’ and a ‘not-so-good’ thing.)
    Lo and behold .. I found you!.
    It appears Bozeman, MT is where you’ve sprouted ‘deep roots.’. 212 228 5208
    I would love to hear from you and hear of your adventures these past 10-15 yrs. ;-)
