Artist Annie Bailey explores her love of font and text in an exhibit of new work. Sketches of vintage typewriters (some with customizable messages) share space with drawings of old grain elevators, signs and other Montana classic images, all rendered in Bailey’s clean, modern style. A Montana native, Bailey grew up on a ranch and draws inspiration from the things that surrounded her in childhood. Grain elevators, signs from small town businesses long gone, old billboards, and the typewriter she inherited from her grandmother all draw her eye with words rendered into art. Currently studying architecture at Montana State University, Bailey’s drawings also reference her love of line, form and structure.
