Art @ the Library

Local Artists at Work
Artists Jerolyn Dirks and Terry and Whitney Hall, exhibitors in the Bozeman Library’s Atrium Gallery, will be working on current painting projects in the lobby for the month of April while their show is displayed. Terry and Whitney will be painting live every Friday, beginning April 1 from 1:00 to 3:30 pm, and Jerolyn will paint on Tuesdays, beginning April 5 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. The public can see original painting in progress, see how a painter operates, and ask questions about that piece or any of their artwork on display. This is a unique chance to see an artist at work!
