Sara Siestreem: BALLAST
Sara Siestreem: BALLAST
MAM is honored to host this exhibition of paintings by Portland, OR artist Sara Siestreem. Siestreem creates abstract paintings through a process which incorporates color field painting, automatic drawing, and incorporation of symbology. While these approaches may overlap, the consistency she achieves is remarkable, producing one resolved composition after another. The over 20 abstract works selected for her first solo museum exhibition reflect a maturity that has drawn attention to her career.

It is with delight that MAM presents the aesthetic efforts stemming from the creative minds of Sentinel High School's Art program. Sentinel is fortunate to have three very dedicated art teachers: Sally Friou, who oversees the ceramics studio; Robin Gray, who works with her favorite media, jewelry and wirework; and Tim Nielson, who encourages expressionistic drawings and paintings. They teach the foundations of creating a sound piece of art, stressing the fundamentals without losing the spark of teenage creativity.

Chris Autio: Hands On
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."
DATES:
May 16 - July 26, 2014
Blessingway: Prints by Melanie Yazzie
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."
DATES:
June 06 - October 11, 2014
Bill Ohrmann: Tainted Revelations

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.
DATES:

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.
