Binary Form: Ceramic Abstraction by Trey Hill and Andrea Moon
This exhibition at Missoula Art Museum brings together two Montana ceramists, Trey Hill and Andrea Moon. The pairing of artists generates dialogue about similarities and differences in the artists' formalist sensibilities. Binary Form showcases the variable strengths of ceramics as a sculptural medium and how two artists working in contradictory ways use form to express content. Each uses a single recognizable object as the basis to work through introspective themes. The craftsmanship, subtle surfaces, and elegant forms have holding power and encourage contemplation.

Jerry Rankin: From the Inside Out
From the Inside Out is an exhibition of seven charcoal drawings collected from his 2002 exhibition at MAM titled New Works. A counterpoint to the vibrant color and trembling energy of Rankin's more well-known paintings and prints, these drawings are contemplative and understated. The images are meditations on the land, specifically contemplating the physical borders both natural and human-made.
