Leslie Van Stavern Millar II: Montana Peepshow Stories
More than 20 years ago, Leslie Van Stavern Millar II appeared as her Science Woman persona to present the first Montana Peepshow Stories. Queen Elizabeth I is a time-traveler visiting historic moments in Montana as part of the Caravan Project, a mobile art collective that visited rural communities throughout the state. For the MAM exhibition, Millar has added five paintings to the original five in the series. The new works depict the Queen and specific people and events in Missoula's history, such as the Black Bicycle Corps of Fort Missoula, the Salish Pow Wow in Arlee, and President Roosevelt on the occasion when he spoke on Higgins Avenue in 1911. The series of 10 paintings are housed in freestanding wooden boxes, calling to mind the peepshows of yesteryear. Visitors will find the peepshows featured in MAM's Travel Montana Lobby and encounter the works throughout the museum's three floors.

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.
