Call for contemporary visual artists

The Emerson is now accepting applications for contemporary visual art exhibits for our Lobby, Weaver Room, and Jessie Wilber galleries for 2009 – 2011.

The Jessie Wilber Gallery exhibits the artwork of professional contemporary artists showing painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, crafts, mixed media, film, new genre, and installations.

The Emerson Lobby Gallery exhibits the drawings, paintings, prints, photography, and mixed media work of regional contemporary artists. The show often relates specifically to the current exhibit in the Jessie Wilber Gallery.

The Weaver Room Gallery displays two-dimensional and wall hung sculpture highlighting topics of regional significance including community concerns, travel, and artwork by students and faculty of Montana State University and our local schools.

Bozeman artists on the web

I have heard that in Gallatin County the proportion of people identifying themselves as artists is several times the national average. True or not, I do know that there are a lot of artists around, but they can be hard to find even if they are on the Internet. I do know that people are looking, because my stats tell me of the web searches that bring people here.

The only online listing site I know of is the Bozeman page of Montana Artists, but to reach their very short list you have to scroll down past ads for real estate agencies, Hannah Montana, and a page-long tourist brochure. If there are other lists I’m missing, please let me know.

So I would like to make this blog available. If you’re an artist and have a web site, tell me and I’ll post it here and add a link on the Bozeman Artists page. And if you don’t have a web site, then Art Bozeman can be a place you might be found if people are searching for you specifically, or Bozeman area artists in general. Either way, just send me (steve@stephendurbin.com) a few sentences about you and your art, along with contact information, and an image or two to include if you wish. You don’t have to live in Bozeman; any real or imaginary connection is enough.
