Exhibit Proposal Guidelines
Come and view “Movement. Montana.” a new exhibit of unique and interpretive oil paintings depicting the fascinating, yet familiar, shape of native trees as seen through the eyes of Livingston artist Edd Enders.
A fifth generation Montanan and MSU Fine Arts graduate, Enders expresses that “I feel a certain intimacy with the environment of the Northern Rockies and people’s interaction with it. Living in isolated areas gave me ample time to ponder, observe and draw.”
“Trees, primarily cottonwood trees, have always moved me and comprised a large element of my work. For me, the trees contain a figurative-humanistic quality and are very representative of the west, Montana and the Gallatin Valley” says Enders. “Like people, every one of them is different.”
Ender’s work has appeared in several locations around Montana, and will be exhibited in the Library’s Atrium Gallery through February. All paintings on exhibit are for sale, with a portion benefiting the Bozeman Public Library. Call the Library Foundation 582-2425 for more information.
