The Creative Act: Works by Rudy Autio

24 January - 29 February 2020

Radius Gallery's first exhibition of 2020—and the first in its new location—will feature a wide array of 2D and 3D works by master ceramist and Missoula icon Rudy Autio (1926-2007).


The show is a fantastic opportunity to view and acquire never-before-seen works by this much loved artist, whose 50-year career shaped the face of contemporary ceramics and established Montana as a locus for innovative art-making. The exhibition showcases Autio's lively, boundary-pushing ceramics, his lush paintings and prints, his newly published memoir, and many stories of an art-filled life.


Radius Gallery is eternally thankful to the Autio family for their enthusiasm and support in facilitating this very special exhibition.

You’re constantly posing some questions that you try to answer. The action between the question and the solution is what I think is the creative act. — Rudy Autio
