Emerson galleries feature pair of fresh arrays this month
Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture has announced two new exhibits on display in April.
Emergence by Kurt Palmquist began with a fascination for three-dimensional geometric forms inspired by architecture and light. Through dimensional wall art, paintings, and digital prints, Palmquist has developed a visual language that harmoniously connects all of his works. Each piece is intriguing when considered as a whole, but offers endlessly evolving compositions as you look deeper into the work. Careful use of forms and color create spaces that invite the imagination to enter and explore as if they were actual structures. Emergence is on display in the Lobby and Weaver Room Galleries through April 23rd.
The Botany of Math(re): an Exploration of Numbers and Nature by Susie Mathre delves into the intersecting relationships between plants, mathematics, and the patterns they create. Seeds and leaves of local noxious and invasive weeds, metal, wood, glass, and other elements, come together to investigate intriguing geometric shapes, spirals, symmetries and mathematical puzzles found in nature. These works are on display in the Jessie Wilber Gallery through April 30th.
These exhibits are sponsored by the Montana Arts Council and NorthWestern Energy Community Works.
All exhibits are free and open the public. Gallery hours are 10am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. Visitors must wear masks and respect social distancing guidelines for the safety and comfort of the Emerson community.
