Brooke Karath @ Wild Joe’s

An exhibit of Brooke Karath’s Native American portraits will be on display at Wild Joe’s Coffee on Main Street through the month of November. Although Karath has lived in Bozeman for over 15 years, she has always been drawn to the beauty and spirit of northern New Mexico. She’s inspired by its rich regional heritage, majestic landscapes, and hypnotic night skies. She’s also dazzled by its people, their passion, artistry, and creativity. The driving force behind Karath’s work is the desire to honor the heritage, beauty, and heart of New Mexico and its people.

Karath prefers to work with pine and uses a combination of charcoal, watercolor, and acrylic. This particular exhibit will also feature several collaborative pieces with David Vargas, a talented wood carver from Abiquiu, New Mexico. 20% of sales will go to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank to provide assistance for families in need this holiday season.

George Cole: Montana Primitive @ Wild Joe’s Coffee

George Cole’s abstract and acrylic art is on exhibit this June at Wild Joe’s Coffee House in Bozeman. An artist’s public reception is planned for 5-7 p.m., Friday, June 5, at 18 W. Main St.

Cole defines his work as primitive and untrained using vivid colors and images to define society. Twenty pieces are part of the exhibit featuring acrylic on canvas, fabric and natural objects. His work includes montage work and photography.

A native of Laurel, Cole lives in Bozeman and his interviews are featured Monday evenings on Yellowstone Public Radio. His work is part of collections in Minneapolis, Chula Vista, Spokane and Bozeman.

Proceeds from art sales during the exhibit will benefit the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.
