MAM's exhibition program is a broad landscape that serves and represents diverse audiences and creative interests.

Each year, 20 to 25 solo and group exhibitions rotate through six state-of-the-art galleries. MAM organizes and rents exhibits, develops programs through community partnerships, and welcomes the opportunity to review exhibition proposals.

MAM does not accept commissions on the sale of artwork but in support of artists, will put collectors in touch with artists or artists' representatives.

Renée Brown: Profusion
Renée Brown: Profusion
Missoula-based artist Renée Brown is no stranger to the ceramics community, and we are excited to present her first solo MAM exhibition. The exhibition explores the natural world, with Brown reexamining stones and minerals which so fascinated her in her youth. It is no coincidence that the installation feels like a mineral show. A mature ceramic artist, Brown has been attracted to the natural compositions in gems, minerals, and stones, and in exploring the resulting vision.

Jeneese Hilton: Raven Reviewing Modern
Jeneese Hilton: Raven Reviewing Modern
St. Ignatius artist Jeneese Hilton is a painter's painter. Her lush canvases of expressively applied paint deftly capture light and color, form and content. The themes of her paintings are richly layered, drawing from myth, history, literature and spirituality, the personal and the communal. Imagery from her own Blackfeet tradition recurs, with creatures suggestive of Native American animism and sacredness, such as the horse, turtle, raven, bison, and bear. The fields of thick color and compelling forms invite the viewer to ponder and find meaning in the paintings.

Montana Triennial: 2015
Montana Triennial: 2015
The works range from the abstract to the figurative, but all reflect years of artistic preparation honed by schooling, travel, experience, critical theory, knowledge of place, and repeated trips to the studio revisiting themes and craft. Whether black-and-white or color, intimate or world-weary, rendered by manipulating clay or pushing paint, the works in this exhibition relate private tales and shared subject matter.
DATES:
May 01 - September 04, 2015
