Call for artists | Project: RECYCLE postcard exhibit @ [the art project]

Project: RECYCLE is an art on postcard exhibit that will be displayed at the Emerson’s NEW interactive community space, [the art project] at the Emerson. This is the 3rd postcard project and as usual all are invited to participate(artists and non-artists). Participants decide what “RECYCLE” means to them and relay this visually (words, images, etc) on a postcard that is provided upon request. The due date is March 11 by 5pm in time for the Emerson Artwalk. The project will be on exhibit until July 1, 2011.

The Postcard Project’s mission is to exhibit art work in a casual format based on a theme, in this case RECYCLE. This project is about being creative and inspiring yourself and others, and participating in a group project. The art will provide various interpretations of the theme and provide a unique viewing experience to the public. Each person interprets the same word differently. Some factors include native language, geographic location, age, and general view of the world.

If you already have a postcard, please feel free to use that for this project.

Contact Cherlyn Wilcox at the Emerson for more information or to obtain a postcard. cherlyn@theemerson.org or 587-9797.

THE ALPHABET PROJECT @ [the art project]

[the art project], an Emerson run gallery space, introduces, THE ALPHABET PROJECT…an exhibit based on the letters of the alphabet. Each letter was randomly selected to a diverse group of creatives in the community. Focusing on an ordinary subject that we see each day, often by the hundreds of thousands, this exhibit conveys 26 letters as more than just shapes. The 26 artists, designers, and other locals in this show conceive and interpret the alphabet in surprising and inventive ways, ranging from graceful and polished to witty and unconventional. Come see the creations!

The mission of [the art project] at the Emerson is to provide a public space that fosters cultural development, self-expression and human interaction through the development and exhibition of art that is contemporary, experimental, and participatory.

Opening Reception:
February 11, 2011, 5-8pm in conjunction with the Emerson Art Walk
Exhibiting until April 4, 2011.
[the art project] is located in the Emerson’s Galleria Hall #110.

LA Hoffman and Project: ME @ [the art project]

[the art project] is hosting a dual show this month: LA Hoffman will exhibit her recent serigraphs, and Project: ME will be displaying the postcards submitted by local creatives. See both at Art Walk, 5-8 pm, Friday, October 8.

Elizabeth Stone @ [the art project]

[the art project] at the Emerson—a new space dedicated to engage the community with unique interactive projects, art exhibited by primarily emerging artists and other creative adventures—invites you to stop by during the art walk on Friday, July 9 from  5-8pm.

Elizabeth Stone will be exhibiting Song Bird Song, a collection of photographs that lyrically portray a brief interlude between impermanence and stagnation.  Stone moves us through her song, her poem, with the minute movements of the birds. The birds on the wires shimmer not unlike tiny drawings or musical notes on a piece of sheet music.  They rest, they move, they rest and they move and they pause before taking flight, depicting our own dance in life.

[the art project] will also be offering various interactive art projects for all art walkers at the walk while you enjoy wine and small snacks!

The Raptor Society will be here to exhibit their raptor images and will share information about their exciting education programs!

Informal group art critique @ [the art project]

The new gallery downstairs at the Emerson, [the art project], is more than just a gallery, but a community room to meet, teach, and celebrate. So lets utilize the space and get together to talk about our artwork! This is a great opportunity to bring in your latest artwork or idea about your next piece and discuss over some tea and wine.

We will meet for an informal critique Thursday June 3rd, from 7pm – 8:30pm. Come meet some fellow artists and get some encouragement on your artwork. The gallery space is across from Tart in the Emerson. Give me a call if you have any questions or shoot me an email.

[the art project]

The Emerson is proud to present a new, contemporary space in the Emerson. The mission of the [the art project] is to provide a venue for primarily emerging artists in the region while providing affordable, contemporary art to the community in a fresh, exciting atmosphere. The grand opening will be Friday, June 11, 5-8pm, in #110 Emerson Galleria Hall.

John Parker, a photographer in Bozeman and local Montanan will be exhibiting his work from the last few years with images taken in Belize, Germany, Arizona, and here in Bozeman. In it there is a range of contrasts from small insects to enormous mountain ranges, action settings opposite to tranquil scenery, as well as lush, vibrant colors along with two-toned images that seem to indicate foreboding experiences. He finds the surreal in the landscapes and situations around and combines man-made and natural objects that compliment each other unintentionally. Composition is generally straightforward, and if needed, post processing allows to emphasize his vision in a given moment and create new and unconventional perspectives.
