The Art of Patti Gordon

Patti was born and raised in Billings, Montana, the daughter of a dry-land wheat farmer. Her family owned a farm in Acton, Montana, where she learned to enjoy the outdoors, being on the farm, and riding horses across the wheat strips, while watching the light and colors change across the landscape. This love for the West is her inspiration to paint the landscape. In the North Gallery for the month of September.

Patse Hansen & Kristi Brothers at the Depot Gallery

Patse paints in a contemporary style, Western, nature and Native American subjects. Her work is based on the inspiration she derives from her love of animals, the outdoors and her interest in the spiritual elements of other cultures and Western life. Kristi has been working in clay for more than 20 years. Raku is her specialty and she uses glazes with a heavy copper base which give her work the look of metal, not clay.

Month of September, 2014

Featured Artist Blair Clemo at the Red Lodge Clay Center

Blair Clemo will share his latest offerings in our first Fall 2014 exhibit. Always ornate, impeccably crafted, and accessible. Clemo elevates us out of the mundane with his work, giving us a wink and a nod in the process.

"There are moments in my work of utilitarian consideration where the vocabulary of contemporary studio pottery is unmistakable. There are also moments of opulence where utilitarian concerns are second to elements of visual pleasure. These pots balance on a fine line between sincerity and irony. They are sincere in their careful craft and potential for use; yet their assertion of material value and wealth is as transitory and uncertain as our own status in an unsteady world."

"Romantic Robots Return" Exhibition at the Clay Center

The Romantic Robots are: Blake Jamison Williams, Casey McDonough, Lauren Herzak-Bauman, Kim Greene, Frederick Bartolovic, and Robin Strangfeld.

All work in porcelain multiples, yet they are divided between scientific influence and more idealized notions. Together they have formed a long-distance, networking cooperative. They participate in brainstorming, critiquing work, and exhibitions. And in 2012, they came to Red Lodge for a short-term residency. During their stay the decided to begin work on a collaborative exchange of objects. The collaboration has taken the form of a call and response making exchange spanning two years. They will not be aware of the final collection as a whole until all the works arrived in Red Lodge in September 2014.

The conversation, started during a residency, carried to fruition in an exhibition is our mission made manifest. We're privileged to have had the opportunity to get to know the Robots and learn from their process.

Join Beartooth R.D. for the Full Moon Wall

The Beartooth Ranger District is hosting the Beaver Full Moon Walk on Saturday, September 6 at 7:00 p.m. at the Jimmy Joe Campground up the East Rosebud drainage. This is the final Moon Walk of 2014. Refreshments are not provided, but feel free to bring your own.

Featured speakers for the Beaver Moon Walk will be:
· Barb Pitman, Beartooth R.D., Wildlife Biologist discussing beaver and beaver habitats on the forest and,
· Pat Pierson, Custer Gallatin Forest Geologist who will discuss the 1996 Shepherd Mountain Fire and subsequent rock slides and forest regeneration.

To reach the location of the talk from Red Lodge, travel west approximately 20 miles on Highway 78 to Roscoe, MT. Turn south into Roscoe, drive through town and continue approximately 3.5 miles until you cross a bridge over the river. Again turn south on East Rosebud Road and drive 6.5 miles to Jimmy Joe Campground on your right. The road is paved to Roscoe and then it will be a gravel road for the remaining 10 miles. Participants should plan for travel time anticipating 45 min. – 1 hour and expect some wash-board and potholes along the road in places. The discussion will be held near the river and will not require much of a walk, though participants are encouraged to explore the area after the discussion.

This walk is held three nights before the full moon to take advantage of the earlier moonrise. Participants may want to bring binoculars, comfortable shoes, water, and a flashlight in case the moon does not cooperate. Anticipate the weather and dress in layers, accordingly.
