George Cole: Montana Primitive @ Wild Joe’s Coffee

George Cole’s abstract and acrylic art is on exhibit this June at Wild Joe’s Coffee House in Bozeman. An artist’s public reception is planned for 5-7 p.m., Friday, June 5, at 18 W. Main St.

Cole defines his work as primitive and untrained using vivid colors and images to define society. Twenty pieces are part of the exhibit featuring acrylic on canvas, fabric and natural objects. His work includes montage work and photography.

A native of Laurel, Cole lives in Bozeman and his interviews are featured Monday evenings on Yellowstone Public Radio. His work is part of collections in Minneapolis, Chula Vista, Spokane and Bozeman.

Proceeds from art sales during the exhibit will benefit the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.
