The 40th Annual Juried Exhibit Traveling Collection may be viewed at the Gallery in downtown Glendive during the month of April. This year’s show is called “Winter Wonder.”

The 40th Annual Juried Exhibit Traveling Collection may be reviewed during the month of April at The Gallery, 109 N. Merrill Ave. in Glendive Mont.

The traveling collection features artwork represented in the 40th Annual Juried exhibit shown earlier this year at the Waterworks Art Museum (WAM) in Miles City. This year’s show, “Winter Wonder” involves everything winter. The Exhibit represents artwork from local, regional and national artists. Each accepted entry in “Winter Wonder” had to tell the story of the wonder of winter or wondering when winter would end. All media and two and threedimensional artwork were accepted.

Shelley Freese, a Miles City artist, juried in a variety of art work. There are many different subject matter and media. The content of this exhibit shows the creativity of those that entered Cash prizes and sponsor awards were selected before the opening. WAM staff selected 23 representative works from the original exhibit for inclusion in the 2019 Traveling collection, which will tour eastern Montana until the end of 2019, with stops in Glendive, Sidney, Baker, Broadus, Colstrip, Hardin and Jordan.

Stockman Bank of Miles City and the William and Lorene Nefsy Foundation cosponsor the Juried Exhibit and the Traveling collection tour with additional support from Diane Townsend, Source Tek, Jack Richeson and Co., Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff, Dick Blick Art Materials and JOANN Stores.
