New Old Main show inspired by contemporary American West
Old Main Gallery & Framing is pleased to host “The Contemporary Wild,” a solo exhibition featuring new works by Boughton Walden, during the month of May. An opening reception will take place Friday, May 7th from 5–7pm. Guests will be asked to wear a mask. Wine and beer will be served. The event is open to the public.
“I am a modern western painter based out of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. As an artist, I focus on contemporary portrayal of the beauty of the American West,” reads his artist statement. “My paintings are acrylic on birch wood, with an epoxy resin finish poured on top. The use of negative space is done to accentuate the subject matter. The modern representation is a direct influence in my work as a professional graphic designer, as the art is manipulated digitally, and then translated manually to my wooden canvas. This mix of composition and materials give my work a modern twist to traditional western art.”
Old Main Gallery & Framing is located at 129 E Main in Downtown Bozeman. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 10am–5:30pm. Learn more about the space and framing services at www.oldmaingallery.com. •
