Uncovering the West – a photojournalist’s perspective: photographs by Anne Sherwood


Although she enjoys exploring distant lands, Sherwood also loves photographing in her own backyard. Since 1995 she’s been covering Montana and the neighboring states for publications as global as the New York Times and as local as the Big Sky Journal. These twelve images are a few of Sherwood’s favorites from her assignments across the American West.

anna visscher @ tart @ The Emerson

I own a small shop/gallery named tart in the Emerson Cultural Center, and am looking for artists to do month long shows. I feature local and regional art, both jewelry, accessories, and more traditional art that hangs on walls. The space is bright, colorful, and fun. I’m looking for more contemporary, less traditionally “western” work, the quirkier the better. If you’re interested in showing in tart, I prefer email contact (tartalicious@yahoo.com), with images of your work attached. If it looks like it’s a fit, I’ll get in touch with you and ask you to come in and show me the work in person.

Creative Planet: How the Landscape Makes Art (and Vice Versa)

This is the title of a Saturday (10/20) afternoon workshop at the Bioneers conference at the Emerson. It features a panel of Josh DeWeese, Matthew Marsolek, and MJ Williams, with Savannah Barnes facilitating. Bios of these folks can be found on the BORN site; here’s the workshop blurb:

Art has the power to transform us. Art connects communities through shared times and issues: art reflects who we are and how we feel about that. Art mirrors our environment — internal and external. How does the landscape influence our artists? How do our artists influence our landscapes? What do we need to do to sustain our artistic richness? What are the threads connecting past artists to the present, and connecting the local to the global? How can art wake up more people to care about place? Come listen to perspectives from a potter, two musicians and a writer on how art and place make beauty. Venue: Down to Earth Yoga

Tough questions, but I’m sure you’ll get the answers if you attend the workshop. :-)

Note: If you’ve perused a detailed schedule of Bioneers events, you might have noticed this workshop. As far as I can tell, it’s not listed anywhere with art-related events. Another example of why we need a place like this blog for such announcements.
