The University of Montana and the University Center Gallery would like to inform the general public and artistic community at large of the upcoming exhibition by Oregon-based artist Ianclark. The show is titled New and Old Marks and will feature photographic, sculptural, and mixed media works. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, December 4, from 5-8pm.

Clark’s recent works explore themes of textural, cultural, and environmental decay.

The artist reveals a very close attention to detail, creating beautiful images that make strong use of color and (in his photographs) a very narrow depth of field.  Clark is visibly attracted to texture and abstraction, which he explores through a unique, minimalist aesthetic.

The Missoula Art Museum will host it exhibition, “ANTIQUE QUILTS: UNIQUE PATTERNS AND SHAPES” from December 5th to the 31st. This festive, antique quilt collection is a selection of 16 works from the Jim and Kate Carroll Collection. Viewers will enjoy a variety of hand-quilted traditional and symmetrical patterns featuring stylized flowers and figures, with a decidedly pastel palette. Many of these 19th and early 20th century quilts are baby quilts.

MAM recognizes and wishes to celebrate the influence of this historic craft and its connection to many contemporary expressions. This traveling exhibition is sponsored by Copper Village Art Center in Anaconda under the auspices of the Montana Art Gallery Directors’ Association (MAGDA).
