About this event
Description: 
Celebrate Jones Graf’s exhibition, “Montana: Prairies to Peaks,” and the opening of the Elizabeth Rubendall Artist-in-Residence Studio & Education Lab during Lincoln’s First Friday Artwalk from 5–7 p.m. 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.” During First Friday, Jones Graf will give a short gallery talk about her artwork at 6 p.m. in the lower-level gallery. Jones Graf is the inaugural artist for the Elizabeth Rubendall Artist-in-Residence Studio and Education Lab donated by Fred and Julie Hoppe, which opens with her residency, March 23–April 6, 2019. Also on view: 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.! Parking is usually available in the Que Place garage at 11th and Q streets.
