The Artists’ Gallery at the Emerson invites the public to a reception for artists Bonnie Glock and Stuart Bond, to be held on Friday, October 9 from 5 to 8 PM. Their works will be on display from September 28 through October 24. Glock will present a series of abstract graphite and pastel drawings, most of which will be in black, white, and gray tones. Bond will be showing his beautifully carved wood hangings, using trout, birds, wildlife, and celtic designs as his inspiration.
Bonni Glock’s early artistic inclinations were shaped by her mother, a realistic artist out of the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Having received a B.S. in Education from Texas Tech University and a B.A. in Art from M.S.U., Bonnie now combines mediums, styles and rhythms into her own individual expression. She has painted and exhibited in eight states.
Stuart Bond started carving at age thirteen when his father enrolled them both in woodcarving classes. His instructor was a master woodcarver from Norway. From then on, with the encouragement of his artistic parents, he learned and practiced on his own, working in wood and stone. Living on the Oregon coast gave him inspiration and plenty of subject matter. Then he experienced the dramatic change of moving to Montana, and a what a good change it has been. Here he’s honed his skills and added clay and wax to his sculpture mediums. Sculpture is a passion for Stuart and there is nothing he would rather be doing.

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.
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!

Whitehouse will be showing her latest oil paintings of both landscapes and wildlife, many of which are of local scenes that Bozeman residents will recognize. Williams will be featuring new oil paintings of classically inspired still-lifes and plein-air studies of Montana’s western landscapes.
Kitty Whitehouse – Landscape and Wildlife Artist
Kitty Whitehouse has an art degree from the University of New Hampshire as well as having studied western landscapes, lighting, and techniques with several local and nationally known artists. Working primarily in oils, her subjects are usually horses, wildlife, and the Montana and Yellowstone landscapes. However, her paintings are usually about the light, using the subjects to portray an emotion, a unique lighting condition, or time of day. Many of her latest paintings are of local scenes that Bozeman residents will recognize.
Linda Williams – Landscape and Still-Life Painter
Linda was born in Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in New York, New Orleans, and Memphis. She graduated Phi Kappa Phi from MSU with a degree in Fine Arts, receiving the Strand Award. She was included in the “35 Important American Women Artists” show in July 1992 at Saks Gallery in Denver and currently resides in Bozeman, Montana. Over the last few years she has been sharpening her skills in oils paints through “plein-air” studies and still-life works.
Take a closer look at the Yellowstone geysers; upclose and abstract. Dede Christman, painting in oil, has done just that. Already known for her lovely clay bowls inspired by Yellowstone’s hot pools, Dede will join Sally Jo Hand at the Artist’s Gallery in the Emerson Cultural Center for the season’s first Art Walk on Friday, May 8, from 5-8p.m.
Sally Jo Hand has always seen Art as a spiritual journey, a joining of both her love of pastels, oils, and watercolors with a reverence for enriching people’s lives. She has an MA in both Art Therapy and Divinity, and will be delighted to share her creative, heartfelt approach to life. We hope you can join us.
The Artists’ Gallery, in the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture, will host a reception for a new artist, Lori Schilling, on Friday, March 13th, from 5-8 PM. Schilling grew up in Great Falls and has been creating beaded jewelry most of her life. Her original designs are beautifully detailed using sterling silver, Swarovski and Czech crystal, and natural stones. Her beadwork will be exhibited in the gallery through March 28th. The gallery is located at 111 S. Grand, Suite 106. Regular hours are 10a-5p, Mon – Sat.
Justine Heisel and Sarah Angst are featured artists at the Artists’ Gallery in the Emerson for the month of October. The Gallery invites the public to an artist’s reception on Friday, October 10 from 5:00 – 8:00 PM.
Justine Heisel will be showing “Landscapes – Near and Far.” (Her “Memory of Galapagos” is shown here.) Heisel works frequently in the “plein aire” style, creating works of art directly from nature. The demands of painting out of doors support Heisel’s ability to create painterly brush strokes and lively color.
Sarah Angst will be showing new work. Angst’s hand-colored linoleum prints are locally and internationally collected and have won many awards. Each image is hand carved, printed and painted in an attempt to emit a calm, comforting sentiment of simple time and a simple way of life.
Bio for Sarah Angst: Sarah Angst grew up in Winnipeg, Canada. She attended the University of Minnesota Duluth and graduated in 2001 with a BFA in Art Education. In 2003 she settled on printmaking as her medium of choice and has since been creating a body of work to exhibit. She now lives in Bozeman.
Angst creates each linoleum block print one at a time. Each image is hand carved, printed and painted in an attempt to emit a calm, comforting sentiment of simple time and a simple way of life. Her prints display the effortless beauty in everyday subject matter. She is drawn to the black outline and loves how it makes every color it contours seem to jump off the page.
Bio for Justine Heisel: Justine Heisel is a contemporary American painter and multimedia artist. She has studied many different disciplines and uses them individually or in combination to produce her art. She lives in Bozeman, surrounded by the mountains that she paints and loves.
Utilizing several media (ink, watercolor, oil, paper, metal, acrylic), she has found that working with one medium can feed an awareness of possibilities to keep in mind for other creations using different mediums. Always exploring the new and incorporating the unknown, Justine’s abstract flowers, scenic nature landscapes and other vivid, inspiring artworks lend beauty and light to any room.
