First Friday Events

As Summer Session One continues, be sure to take advantage of these First Friday art events on campus and downtown:

Recent School of Art graduate Maggie Connors (BFA 2009) will be hosting an opening reception of her latest works at Noteworthy Paper & Press.  Join Maggie from 5-8pm at 101 S. Higgins.  Maggie’s work includes photography, printmaking, and other paper arts.

Just next door to Noteworthy is an awesome toy store called Tsunami.  Several art students including, Matt Fennell (That’s President Fennell to you), Jack Arcand, Tyler Krasowski, Adam Lynn and Lindsey Weber will be displaying their recent works in a group exhibition.

On campus, The Montana Museum of Art and Culture will be hosting the reception for “Hooked on Walter Hook”  from 5-7pm in the lobby of the PAR-TV building.  Walter Hook served as professor and chair of the Department of Art. His surrealist style is employed in colorful paintings of both abstract and everyday objects.

The Missoula Art Museum is proud to unveil artist Kerri Rosenstein’s first major solo museum exhibition. Rosenstein’s work employs both traditional media and natural matter.  Visitors are integrated in the work as they are invited to take one rose-stone and help redistribute the piece back into the environment. Join us for an exciting First Friday with a gallery talk at 7pm by Kerri.  As always, admission is free.  For more information, call 406.728.0447.

Have a fun and safe First Friday and remember there are still spaces available in Summer Session Two classes.  Register online now!
