Library Art Lecture to feature Montana artist Shirl Ireland
Bozeman Public Library invites the public to the next “Exploring the Arts” program featuring Shirl Ireland on Saturday, June 15th. The presentation will be held in the Large Meeting Room with doors at 11:30am. Ms. Ireland’s presentation begins promptly at noon.
Ireland’s presentation will take a look at the journey that led her to the life of a self-employed artist for more than 20 years. Learn about her inspiring and sometimes comical life adventures as she juggles creative entrepreneurship, raising children, producing her art and starting and managing the business, while designing and building a home and studio for it all (twice!).
Ireland lives in Gardiner, Montana, with her partner, sculptor John Stacy and their two children. She is fond of Plein Air painting and has been known to paint scenes from her kayak. She offers classes in art, and painting by commission. Find Ireland on Instagram (@ShirlIreland) and at www.elkriverart.com for a closer look at her work.
The Library Lecture is sponsored by Bozeman Public Library with the assistance of the Bozeman Art Museum, whose mission is to inspire and foster creativity and the love of art through diverse and high-quality exhibits, programs, classes and lectures. It envisions a place where people of all ages can go to experience the transformational power of art.
Located at 626 E Main, Bozeman Public Library creates opportunities that inspire curiosity, exploration and connection. For more information about Exploring the Arts and other library happenings, please visit www.bozemanlibrary.org. •
