tart is delighted to announce the exhibit of a series of new works by Red Lodge artist Maggy Rozycki Hiltner. The opening reception for the exhibit, titled “Summer Providence” will take place on Friday, June 10th from 5-8pm in the tart gallery.
Hiltner is a nationally exhibiting textile artist renowned for breathing new life into the craft of embroidery. Meticulously detailed and sneakily subversive, her work is filled with iconic, nostaligic images of the fifties and sixties, but set slightly askew. She creates images that at first appear whimsical or vibrantly happy but on closer inspection are not quite so. This creates an experience that is at once familiar, funny and strikingly original.
10% of the proceeds from this show will be donated to BridgerCare, providing excellent, affordable reproductive and sexual healthcare and education in a safe, supportive, and empowering atmosphere.
Opening reception will be held in tart, rooms 107B & C in the Emerson Center, 111 S. Grand Ave. Call 406-582-0416 or visit http://www.tartique.com/ for more information. The show will be on display through July 6th, 2011.
