About this event
Description: 
The museum is open late for First Friday! Join us from 5-7 p.m. to enjoy two exhibitions and button making! On view: Montana: From Prairies to Peaks Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence Erin Jones Graf Erin Jones Graf graduated from Montana State University in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking and a separate degree in K-12 Art Education. While she is drawn to the manual labor of printmaking and the “chemistry” behind the process, her love has always been painting. The artist’s native Montana is the subject of her exhibition as the 2019 Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence. She states: “I grew up on the edge of the great plains of Montana, on land that nourished four generations of my family before me…. I paint my home, and my home is expansive. From prairies to peaks, I move along the hay fields and hills, painting the grandeur that is Montana.” From Paint Brushes to Camera Lenses: Creative Women of the Great Plains Paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs from the permanent collection highlight the creative spirit of women artists. Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Tonita Peña, Terry Evans, Hulleah J. Tsinhnahjinnie, Martha Pettigrew, and Anne Burkholder are just a few of the artists featured. This event is free and open to the public. Visit us first as we close at 7 p.m.! Please share this event with anyone who might be interested. Parking is usually available in the Que Place garage at 11th and Q streets.
