Current Art Exhibit :  Samantha Hinckley

A new exhibit of prints by Bozeman artist Samantha Hinckley will be on display in the Atrium Gallery at the Library from December 1 through January 31, 2017.

Hinckley, a graduate of Bozeman High School, earned a BFA in Printmaking and Painting and a BA in Modern Language and Literature from Montana Sate University in 2013.

Artist's Statement~ My artwork explores the mutually formative relationship of people and their natural landscape.  I gather imagery by taking photos to use as visual reference in my studio as I draw, paint, or make prints.  Strategizing a formula of steps to construct the image infuses the work with internal and experiential self-reflection.  Starkly contrasting the immaculate nature of a true in-the-moment experience, unique memories of sensation and emotion are recalled and more objectively observed as I plan and act artistically.  Creatively absorbing and repurposing in this manner grants me the alluring comfort of perceived control.  Ultimately an examination of “grand balance,” my work is inspired by the evolution of culture as dictated by natural surroundings as well as the future of human and environmental solidarity.

The exhibit is sponsored by the Bozeman Public Library Foundation and will be open during regular Library hours. For more information about the exhibit, please call Sarah DeOpsomer at 582-2425 or email sarah@bozemanlibraryfoundation.org.

 

Call For Artists

The Bozeman Public Library Foundation is seeking submissions for its 2018 Atrium Gallery Exhibition Series. The Atrium Gallery located in the Library lobby will showcase both traditional and innovative contemporary art forms, as well as the work of both established and emerging artists of our region.

The Library’s primary objective is to feature exhibitions that will expand public appreciation of art and reflect the diversity of the community. Selections will be made by the Library Art Committee, which is made up of local artists, community members, Library Foundation, and Library staff. Each exhibit will run for one to three months, determined by the committee.

The Bozeman Public Library is committed to promoting the visual and aesthetic enhancement of the Bozeman community through this ongoing presentation of rotating exhibits of public art in the Library. Proposals must be received by April 28, 2017.  Incomplete or late proposals will not be considered.
