Fall art walk in Bozeman

BOZEMAN – Montana State University’s College of Arts and Architecture will host a fall art walk featuring a lecture, exhibits and receptions set Thursday, Oct. 27.

Exhibits and receptions will be held in the Helen E. Copeland Gallery in Haynes Hall and the Dean's Gallery, JLF conference room, second-floor commons and Main Gallery, all in Cheever Hall.

The event will kick off at 6:30 p.m. in Room 215 of Cheever Hall with “Ruined,” an artist talk by visual artist Doug Russell, who is based in Laramie, Wyoming. A show of Russell’s drawings depicting architectural remains, “Upon All of Their Tomorrows,” is currently on exhibit in the Helen E. Copeland Gallery on the second floor of Haynes Hall. Most of the works on display are made with Prismacolor pencil and gesso on Mylar. In his work, Russell said he explores the inevitable effect of time upon human aspirations.


An art walk in college galleries and exhibit space will begin immediately after Russell’s lecture. It will start in the Helen E. Copeland Gallery at 7:30 p.m. with hors d'oeuvres. It will end in Cheever Hall with desserts.

Other exhibits also on the art walk are:

Ella Watson will exhibit “What Remains” in the Main Gallery on the first floor of Cheever Hall. Watson exhibits six of her newest pieces in oil and wax, as well as more conceptual pieces.


MSU student Scotland Steele will exhibit a pop-up show of photographs taken during his travels in the conference room and the second-floor commons area during the art walk.


Images from the Fourth World Championship Belt Buckle Competition also will be in the second-floor commons area of Cheever Hall. The brainchild of MSU metalsmithing professor, Bryan Petersen, is a juried online exhibition inviting all one-of-a-kind, handcrafted, wearable examples in the belt buckle format, including western, modern, fashion, narrative and conceptual pieces. Petersen and visiting artist Nash Quinn were jurors for this year’s competition. Images of the winning buckles will be on display.


Cup Aesthetic,” a show of ceramic vessels created by MSU ceramics students, will be on display in the Dean’s Gallery on the second floor of Cheever Hall. The show, which was juried by visiting artist John Gill, will be on display until Nov. 11.
