Heisel and Danahy featured at Artists’ Gallery

The Artists’ Gallery in the Emerson is pleased to present new artwork by, Justine Heisel and Anne Danahy, our featured artists for the month of August.  We invite you to meet the artists at a wine and cheese reception on the evening of Friday, August 13th from 5-8 p.m., during Downtown Bozeman’s Art Walk.

Justine Heisel’s exhibit is called Leaf Letters – A Petite Calligraphic  Installation, where she combines beautiful letters with nature’s greenery. Heisel likes to approach each new subject in a different way.  This time the subject is the alphabet.  The approach is playful, colorful, light, and it moves!

Award winning watercolorist, Anne Danahy, discovered silk painting five years ago, and was drawn to the transparent brilliance of color when using dyes and silk. In August, the subtle beauty of her silk scarves and abstract and impressionistic silk paintings will be featured at The Artist’s Gallery in the Emerson.

The Artists’ Gallery at the Emerson invites the public to a reception for artists Geri Ward and Anne Danahy, to be held on Friday, September 11 from 5 to 8 PM. Their works will be on display from August 31 through September 26.

Geri Ward will be presenting new works in a show entitled “Star Stuff”, a collection of amorphous outer space water-media work, representational, but without absolute literalness or realism.  Geri has been painting in Bozeman for 35 years, and has worked as a gallery attendant in a variety of galleries.  She has exhibited in Bozeman, the U.S.A. and abroad.

Rooster - Anne Danahy

Anne Danahy, a local watercolorist and oil painter, will be featuring Poultry Portraits of proud roosters, humble hens and delighted children holding their feathered friends with affectionate comfort and mutual trust. Whether fantastically feathered or commonly plumed, Anne’s Poultry Portraits look as good inside as the real birds do in the yard. Bring one home today!

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.
