"Pure Quill: Photographs by Barbara Van Cleve"

Jul 20

Fri Jul 20 2018

10:00 AM - 05:00 PM

The expression “pure quill,” in the language of the West, means “authentic; real, through and through,” and Van Cleve’s gripping photos of the West lend the expression a vivid authenticity that spans years. Born and raised on a working cattle and horse ranch in Montana’s Crazy Mountains, Van Cleve has focused her lens across decades on the land, people, and animals that animate it. In bold compositions and captivating textures, her photographs give a sense of the West’s vibrant personalities and real spirit. Meet the artist during a reception, 5:30 p.m. June 14.
The Depot’s popular ongoing main exhibit “Rails Across the Rockies: A Century of People and Places” introduces visitors to the rich history of railroading in Montana. The museum also presents “The Livingston Depot in History and Architecture,” and “Film in Montana: Moviemaking under the Big Sky.”

Location: Livingston Depot Museum 200 W. Park St. Livingston, MT
