Echo: Unspoken Dialects
On view through October 2, 2016
The symbolism and intent of written words have a history as long as human memory. Artists have always reveled in the visual beauty of symbols that indicate everything from the smallest sound to the largest idea. Echo: Unspoken Dialects reveals the intersections between emotion and reason, and between ideas and concrete form. Language as the trail of memory will be the focus of this exhibition. Echo will feature four leading Montana artists who use actual words, the traces of words, or the suggestion of language in their rich and varied works: Catherine Courtenaye, Michael Haykin, Kate Hunt, and Jerry Iverson.
LEAD SPONSOR: John W. and Carol L. H. Green

If anything is commonly known about Hutterite colonies, it is their reputation for being self-contained and private. So much more is the privilege, then, to be able to view this selection of photographs by Jill Brody, a photographer who earned the trust and support of the Hutterite colonies in Liberty County, Montana.
Directions: Located on the corner of 4th Avenue and North 27th Street, across from the Gazette building and next to Denny’s.
