Hidden in Plain Sight: Photographing the Hutterites of Liberty County by Jill Brody
Hutterite colonies are a photographic Eden. Their colorful anachronistic clothing, the muted earthly tones of the prairie, and the immense skies become visually rich metaphors for the contrast of their centuries-old communal lives of faith with the increasingly vast, inescapable, individuating technological forces of the 21st Century forces that are tugging us all, ready or not, into the future.

May 16 - July 26, 2014
Chris Autio: Hands On
Missoula artist Chris Autio has printed over 30 photographs for his photo essay Hands On. Autio states, "This project began as an essay of photographs of only artists' workspace; their cluttered areas sharply defined by a big camera. But what would tell a story better than having the people in them? While it is ideal to have my subjects working in the photos, from a journalistic perspective, it was also my intention to show their portraits. All of these people have a story to tell, where they work and what they do."

June 06 - October 11, 2014
Blessingway: Prints by Melanie Yazzie
Melanie Yazzie is an artist who lives and works in Boulder, CO, where she is Professor of Art at the University of Colorado. The works included in the exhibition feature a variety of circular relief plates that Yazzie carved with her husband Clark Barker. She states that "the works challenge the idea of what most see as a good, proper print. The works are made fast paced and they are about the action of making them and producing them to capture a moment and energy that is not still. You can feel a movement in these works."

June 06 - October 11, 2014

In addition to the paintings, many sculptures in a variety of media will be featured. A large, steel fabricated work will also be exhibited outside.

Edgar Paxson Murals
In an extremely rare opportunity, and on the 100th anniversary of the paintings' installation at the courthouse, the Missoula Art Museum is proud to be able to display eight paintings by Edgar Paxon within our own Carnegie Gallery. The eight murals were removed in the fall of 2012 to make way for the Missoula County Courthouse's, multi-year renovation and restoration project, and they will not be returned until sometime in 2015. This is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to view the paintings up close in a beautiful gallery setting.
