The Brinton 101 Holiday Invitational Exhibit Nov. 9 to Dec. 17
Posted on: Oct 27 2017
The Brinton Museum in Big Horn, Wyoming, presents THE BRINTON 101, a holiday invitational exhibit featuring nearly 300 works of art in varying media by 101 artists from across the country. Formerly the Small Works Show, THE BRINTON 101 is an all-media invitational that includes affordable, exceptional paintings, sculptures and mixed media pieces in a wide variety of themes. THE BRINTON 101 opens to visitors on Thursday, November 9 and continues in the Jacomien Mars Reception Gallery and the S. K. Johnston, Jr. Family Gallery through December 17th. A reception to meet the artists takes place on Sunday, November 12, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
While sizes vary, each artist was asked to create works in an 8” x 10” configuration, with sculptures in a size range of 12” in height, and a base not to exceed 8” x 10”. The intent of the small works show is to expand a collective appreciation for new and known artists, and the significance of small works in fine art.
According to museum director and chief curator Ken Schuster, “THE BRINTON 101 is the 2017 adaptation of TBM’s former Small Works invitational show. Our premise is that a great work of art can be accomplished in a small amount of space, hence the show features paintings, sculptures and mixed media pieces in a wide variety of themes and price ranges.”
Among the superb 101 featured artists in this exhibit are award-winning recipients: Clyde Aspevig (Bozeman, MT), Gregory Packard (Montrose, CO), Joel Ostlind (Big Horn, WY), Tom Lockhart (Canon City, CO), Carrie Ballantyne (Sheridan, WY), Birdie Real Bird of the Crow Nation (Garryowen, MT), Oreland Joe (Kirtland, NM), James Jackson (Sheridan, WY), Huihan Liu (Santa Rosa, CA), Michael Ome Untiedt (Denver, CO), Jan Rosetta (Loveland, CO), Lynn Thorpe (Rapid City, SD), and more.
