(Shown above are details from the paintings in the Three Story Houses series.)
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.
