Pribanic and Christman @ Artists’ Gallery

The Artists’ Gallery in the Emerson is pleased to present new artwork by, JAPribanic and Dede Christman, our featured artists for the month of September. We invite you to meet the artists at a wine and cheese reception on the evening of Friday, September 10th from 5-8 p.m., during Downtown Bozeman’s Art Walk.

From East to West is a collection of recent paintings by JAPribanic. Two paintings from the Maine shoreline will show her love for that part of the country whereas other paintings will reveal her soft spot for places close to home. Inspired by the landscape of Montana, the Maine shore and many places in Europe as well, JAPribanic has left behind her work as a chemist and taken up the paints, brushes and canvas that now fill her life. She has used oil paint for her current display although she sometimes works in watercolor.

EXPERIMENTS IN ENCAUSTIC will show new works by Dede Christman as she experiments with the art of painting with wax. Dede Christman took a workshop with Shawna Moore from Whitefish, this past winter and was intrigued by the crossover of the texturing techniques in the clay and the wax. She will also have new shapes and glazes in her clay work. One of those will be a ‘pillow’ shape. Come by and see the new and experimental works and tell her what you think.
