“Some Big Pictures From the 80’s” by Fran Noel @ the Exit Gallery

ASMSU Campus Entertainment presents: Some Big Pictures From the 80’s a photography exhibition by Fran Noel.  The exhibit will be showing in the Exit Gallery November 1 – 12.  There will be a free public artist reception Wednesday, November 3rd from 5 – 7 pm.

Some Big Pictures from the 80’s: A unique collection of artwork featuring eclectic recycled materials, vivid colors, dramatic interplay between two and three dimensions, and a very mysterious narrative. The exhibition involves an attempt to warp space and create illusions without darkroom manipulation. Fran’s idea was to reduce three dimensions of the “real world” into two dimensions within a photograph. Something you just have to see to realize.

Fran received his Bachelors degree from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire and his Masters of Fine Arts at the University of Colorado in 1965.  He has received numerous Visual Artists Fellowships and Grants to assist with his work and research and has taught at different universities, including Montana State University. Fran has been published in many different publications and has work displayed in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, sixteen colleges, and many private institutions.

The Exit Gallery is a student organized art gallery which hosts seven two week exhibits per semester as well as other arts events. It is located in Strand Union Building room 212, Montana State University, Bozeman. Hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. See you there!
