Willem Volkersz: On Paper
This exhibition celebrates recent gifts donated to the Missoula Art Museum Permanent Collection by Willem and Diane Volkersz. Included in the exhibition are 12 drawings donated in 2014 and 38 drawings donated in 2015. These works were exhibited as part of a drawing retrospective titled, A Paper Trail, Drawings 1954-1999. The drawings range in theme from those Volkersz created as a high school student during his studies of the geometric De Stijl movement native to the Netherlands, to a series of playful self-portraits, spare conceptual exercises, and hat 'excerpts' drawn from famous paintings throughout art history. As a whole, they are a testament to the power and breadth of which drawing is capable and to the artist's development over a period of 60 years.

For the MAM exhibition, Millar has added five paintings to the original five in the series.

The series of 10 paintings are housed in freestanding wooden boxes, calling to mind the peepshows of yesteryear.

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.
