“Notions: New Work by Maggy Rozycki Hiltner and Shalene Valenzuela”
December 29, 2015 - January 16, 2016
New works by Red Lodge-based textile artist Hiltner and Missoula ceramicist Valenzuela are on display Nov. 23-Jan. 16. Using graphic mid-century imagery, both artists explore societal expectations and contradictions. Hiltner combines found vintage embroidery with her own meticulous hand-sewing to create work that is bright and charmingly simple on the surface, with a darker twist lurking below. Valenzuela’’s ceramics combine startlingly realistic trompe l’oeil renditions of everyday objects with vintage imagery of women and traditionally feminine objects. Both artists tackle hard issues with both humor and subtlety.
