Musical-esasels

Community Art Bozeman will host a “musical easels” game that invites artists of all stripes to take turns working on paintings from 6-8pm on Friday July 8. The event will be located in the Sacks Thrift Store parking lot on the corner of Mendenhall and Grand streets in Bozeman.

Beginning at 6 pm you can sign up to work on one of several collaborative paintings. Listen to the Bozeman Ukulele Flash Mob crooning their hearts out while you paint. When the music stops, it’s time to move on the the next painting! What will we create? Who knows?

Bozeman Ukulele Cabaret will provide the music and the public is invited to bring a ukulele and be part of this Art Walk Ukulele Flash Mob.

Featured ukulele performers, Jeannette Skankin, “arguably the only ukulele reggae band in Bozeman that dresses like Montana’s historic congresswoman,” are also slated to make an appearance.

All are welcome to stop by, sing along, watch the musical art follies, or pick up a brush and take part.

For info, find Bozeman Ukulele Cabaret or Community Art Bozeman on Facebook, or send a contact form via the about page.

Three Story Houses, a collaborative project that brought art to non-traditional venues in Bozeman this April and May, will make its final stop at Wild Joe’s Coffee House in June. The show features works by 30 local artists inspired by the theme, “Three Story Houses.” The idea of storytelling as a thread that connects people was the impetus behind the theme.

The works will be on display June 1-30, with a reception during the first Bozeman Summer Art Walk (6-8 pm, Friday, June 10). Some of the works are for sale, with many artists donating all or part of proceeds to local community causes.

This show is the culmination of a grass roots art outreach project that challenged tradition by bringing original art to a variety of unexpected display venues including assisted living communities, healthcare facilities, classrooms, low-income serving agencies, and even a bowling alley. The Wild Joe’s event is the final opportunity for the public to see the series.

The artists featured include Kelly Bellcour, Duncan Bullock, Tina DeWeese, Tara Gallagher, Anne Garner, Max Giles, Sharon Glick, Marla Goodman, Birdie Hall, Alvin Huntsman, Terry Karson, Kate Lyndsay, Cristina Marian, Kenda Minter, Stephanie Newman, Shawn and Bella Raecke, Robert Rath, Selisa Rausch, Tina Rodriguez, Raina Rowberry, Jack Schwem, Joe Schwem,  Jocelyn Stoody, Cameron Taylor, Tom Thornton, Tyson Vick, Mike Weix, Carmel Wood and Angela Yonke.

For more information or to inquire about submitting your own “Three Story Houses” inspired work to a community wall in the show, find Community Art Bozeman on facebook or go to the contact page at https://communityartbozeman.wordpress.com/contact/

A booklet showing all of the works and artist bios is available as a PDF: Three Story Houses BOOK-LR (some adult themes).

The first opportunity to see the community art show, “Three Story Houses” will be at an art open house 5-7pm Saturday, April 9 at Verge Theater.

The Verge is hosting the open house in conjunction with their storytelling event, “Tales from the Verge.”

This art preview (5-7 pm April 9) is free and open to the public. It is a chance to catch a sneak peek of all 28 works and meet artists before selections from the series go on a mini-tour of “pop-up” outreach shows throughout April and May. It will also be an opportunity to purchase selected works through direct negotiation with the artists. Many of the artists plan to donate all or part of sales proceeds to community non-profits.

The art will also remain on display through both “Tales from the Verge” performances (8pm April 8-9) at Verge Theater. To buy tickets ($14) to “Tales from the Verge: Playing the Fool,” hosted by Ryan Cassavaugh, check http://vergetheater.com/buy-tickets. (Tickets will also be available for purchase in person at Cactus Records.)

The art show features works by 28 local artists who were invited to create works on the theme, “Three Story Houses.” The idea of storytelling as a thread that connects divergent art styles was the inspiration for the show, and the open house at the Verge grew out of the connection between narrative art and storytelling.

The artists include Kelly Bellcour, Duncan Bullock, Tina DeWeese, Tara Gallagher, Anne Garner, Max Giles, Sharon Glick, Marla Goodman, Birdie Hall, Alvin Huntsman, Terry Karson, Kate Lyndsay, Cristina Marian, Kenda Minter, Stephanie Newman, Shawn & Bella Raecke, Robert Rath, Selisa Rausch, Tina Rodriguez, Raina Rowberry, Jack Schwem, Joe Schwem,  Jocelyn Stoody, Tom Thornton, Tyson Vick, Mike Weix, Carmel Wood and Angela Yonke.

After the sneak preview April 9 in collaboration with Verge Theater, Community Art Bozeman will make the art available for discussions at assisted living communities, care facilities and public spaces through April and May. Beginning in June, the art will be on public display at Wild Joe’s Coffeehouse.

To schedule a pop-up exhibit and discussion to reach under-served art audiences at a non-traditional art-viewing space, contact Marla Goodman via the CONTACT page.

“The Old Place” by Carmel Wood, coffee on coated paper.

Coffee lovers got a chance to put their Arabica where their art is in the community art show, “About a Bean,” opening Sept. 12.

Organizers of new collaborative called Community Art Bozeman welcomed submissions from artists of all ages. The only rule was that the work had to use coffee, either as a theme or as a (deliciously dark) art supply. They also hosted a week-long coffee paint-in at Wild-Joe’s Coffeespot, inviting coffeehouse patrons to make their own artistic mark on watercolor paper with paint brushes and extra thick evaporated espresso.

The result is an eclectic collection of drawings, paintings and photos literally and figuratively dripping with coffee. Artists to be featured include Marla Goodman, Kathleen Knisely, Catey Lockhart, Sandee Mills, Salvatore Nocilla, June Safford, Jawn Sandstrom, Debb Smith, Rad Smith and Carmel Wood.

The coffee artwork will be shown at Wild Joe’s Coffeespot, 18 West Main, Bozeman, with an opening reception during the Downtown Bozeman Art Walk, 6-8pm Friday, Sept. 12. It will remain on display through mid-October.

•    Acceptance will be based on space available and appropriateness to theme.
•    We will contact you by email to let you know if your work will be included in the show.

In keeping with the “of, for and about coffee” theme, Wild Joe’s is giving a free coffee to every artist whose work is displayed!

Submissions wanted!

Coffee lovers and artists of all ages will be invited to submit drawings, paintings, collage and photos with coffee as their theme, or using coffee [or coffee accoutrements] as a medium!

Submission guidelines will be published soon, but in the mean time, let a cup of espresso evaporate on your counter for a couple of days and start a painting! Or dig up your paintings, drawings, photos or collages (i.e. anything flat) that have to do with coffee. Or start making something new!

Everybody is an artist. So get to work.
