Wilbert and Williams works @ Artists’ Gallery

Artists Ann Wilbert and Linda Williams will be displaying new work during the month of September at the Artists’ Gallery in The Emerson. Come to the Artists’ Gallery in the Emerson Center, to meet the artists at a wine and cheese reception on the evening of Friday, September 9th from 5-8 p.m., during Bozeman’s last Downtown Art Walk.

Ann Wilbert has been making lampwork glass beads for 15 years. She continues her fascination with taking something as solid as glass and molding it into a unique piece of art.

Linda Williams continues to develop her skills as an oil painter. After graduating from MSU with a degree in Studio Art and a focus on watercolors, she has since taken numerous classes to hone her talent in oil. She has recently shown her work in the MIA, Sweet Pea, and Danforth juried shows.

Wilbert and Burk creations @ Artists’ Gallery

The Artists’ Gallery in the Emerson is pleased to introduce Ann Wilbert and Kathy Burk, our featured artists for the month of May. We invite you to meet the artists at a wine and cheese reception on the evening of the Emerson’s Art Walk, Friday, May 14th from 5-8 p.m.

Ann Wilbert will be showing her recent glass bead creations with an emphasis on shapes and colors that echo the look of natural stones. Kathy Burk incorporates steel, glass, found items and objects from nature to create her mosaic collages, merging her organic design with a mechanical style. She is intrigued with the constant challenge of creating both functional art and exploring the creative properties of art glass. Burk uses color, texture, depth and design to capture her audience. Nothing goes to waste and light is always considered.

Anne Danahy
Anne Danahy’s oil paintings capture Montana landscapes and animals in a variety of seasons and light.  See the secrets hiding in our mountains, in a fox stretching in the morning sun, in a Western tanager watching fly fishermen cast their lines, and in “The Nursery,” where a swan tends her signet brood.

Ann Wilbert
Ann Wilbert is a handmade glass bead artist and is new to The Artists’ Gallery. After taking an introductory class on glass bead making at Lake Glass in 1996, Ann was hooked. She has been making beads ever since, using a propane/oxygen mix torch to form the molten glass, and annealing the finished beads in a kiln for longevity. Ann is mostly self taught and is always learning something new about working with glass. She will be showing jewelry creations made with her beads.

Wendy Marquis
Wendy Marquis will be showing her paintings of old Montana trucks, local landscapes, and her hand-painted screens. Wendy attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and graduated with a BFA from the University of Arizona, with a major in graphic design and a minor in studio art. Over the last ten years, Wendy has travelled extensively to take classes in the art of faux finishing walls and furniture. She intertwines all these disciplines when she creates her paintings.

Marquis’ eyes are constantly panning her world for a scene to paint. As of late, she searches for ancient trucks in her Bozeman surroundings, as if she was a treasure hunter panning for gold; when she finds one that speaks to her, Marquis stops to see if she feels a story within its old metal bones. If she does feel so inspired, she proceeds to paint.  As she interprets this feeling and these stories of Montana…it flows intuitively through her brush and onto the canvas.  Whether she is painting an old truck, a landscape, or she is faux finishing a wall, Marquis’ spirit sings when she is working with color and paint.
