ASMSU Campus Entertainment presents: “Silently Spoken” a painting installation by Molly McDonald an undergraduate student of MSU. The exhibition will be showing in the Exit Gallery February 14–25. There will be a free public reception Wednesday, February 16th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
There are no outlandish colors or striking abstractions within Molly’s paintings. Planes of white and subtle color intersect delicately to induce new perceptual sensations of spaces. Instead of implementing anything specific to the viewer, an element of patience is required as she forces one to look deeper into the subtle manipulation of the painting. The work is outstanding as such strong expression is captivated by such powerful subtly.
Molly Jean McDonald began her exploration of varieties of art forms at home in northern Minnesota. Molly’s devotion to education has earned her an Associate of Arts Degree at Fergus Falls Community College for Theatrical Stage Design, while graduating High School in 2003. She then studied Interior Design at North Dakota State University and quickly escaped to find herself a career in Bozeman, MT as a high-end residential Interior Designer at Carole Sisson Designs until 2008. Most recently, Molly graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Fine Art Studios from Montana State University Bozeman.
She has participated in group exhibitions primarily within the School of Art and the local Gallatin Valley community including the Livingston Art Center.
The Exit Gallery is located in Strand Union Building room 212, Montana State University, Bozeman. Hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.
