'Continuum: Contemporary Native American Exhibition' on display in Red Lodge
The Carbon County Arts Guild & Depot Gallery in Red Lodge is hosting the exhibit “Continuum: Contemporary Native American Exhibition,” Sept. 4-28.
The traveling exhibit features 17 works from the Missoula Art Museum Contemporary American Indian Collection. The MAM and Salish Kootenai College collaborated to put the exhibit together. Some of the pieces on loan are from the Salish Kootenai College permanent collection and from MATRIX Press at the University of Montana. The exhibit was guest curated by Nikolyn Garner, an art history graduate student at the Univeristy of Montana. Garner, an SKC alumna, worked with Cameron Decker, the head of the SKC Fine Arts Department, with the idea of reaching SKC students and increase community access to contemporary American Indian artwork.
Artists in the exhibit include Neal Ambrose-Smith, Corwin Clairmont, Jason Elliot Clark, Ric Gendron, John Hitchcock, George Longfish, Neil Parsons, Ernie Pepion, Sara Siestreem, Duane Slick, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Larry Thomas, Marie Watt, Dwayne Wilcox and Melanie Yazzie.
