Artists Dede Christman and Geri Ward will be displaying new work during the month of August at the Artists’ Gallery in The Emerson.
Dede Christman has been exploring new shapes in earthenware clay with glazes reminiscent of the Yellowstone geyser colors. She has also created ‘totem like’ sculptures and abstract ‘beings’ in ceramic. To complement her pottery, Christman will be displaying her abstract, mixed media paintings with added papers to enhance their texture and color.
Although usually recognized for her whimsical and imaginative watercolors, Geri Ward is equally adept at rendering realistic scenes, especially of ducks and geese. Ward’s current exhibit is a brief return to nature and wildlife painting.
Come to the Artists’ Gallery in the Emerson Center, to meet the artists at a wine and cheese reception on the evening of Friday, August 12th from 5-8 p.m., during Bozeman’s Downtown Art Walk.
