For our first exhibition of 2021 we're delighted to bring together the work of four Montana-based artists: LeAnn Boyd (fresco), Pamela Caughey (encaustic), Ashley Meyora (encaustic & mixed media) and Sean O'Connell (decorated pottery).
Each of these artists so thoughtfully explores expression through abstraction, charging the base elements of form, texture, color & composition with emotionality, vitality and verve.
We're calling the exhibition the sense beyond desire, a title derived from the poem "Emergence" by the amazing Joy Harjo, who was recently appointed to her second term as United States Poet Laureate.
A human mind is small when thinking
of small things.
It is large when embracing the maker
of walking, thinking and flying.
If I can locate the sense beyond desire,
I will not eat or drink
until I stagger into the earth
I will locate the point of dawning
with the longest day in the world.
—from “Emergence” by Joy Harjo
