Drive to Lolo for an evening with renowned ceramist Adrian Arleo. Arleo studied art and anthropology at Pitzer College and received her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and she has been a resident artist at Oregon College of Art and Craft and at Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. She exhibits nationally and internationally, and is in numerous public and private collections. She received awards from the Virginia A. Groot Foundation in1991, 1992, and1995, as well as the Montana Arts Council Individual Fellowship. CCC Members will have an opportunity to meet and talk with the artist and see new work. Arleo is one of the selected artists participating in In Praise of Folly: Five Artists After Philip Guston. According to Arleo, her work explores “the vital interconnection between the human and non-human realms; the imagery arises from associations, concerns and obsessions that are at once intimate and universal. The work frequently references mythology and archetypes in addressing our vulnerability amid changing personal, environmental, and political realities.”
CCC members are invited to join us on December 5 at 5:30 PM for wine, champagne, and hors d'oeuvres at Arleo's studio. CCC Members will have an opportunity to meet and talk with the artist and see new work. To join the Contemporary Collectors Circle or RSVP for this event, contact Madeleine Ford, Development Officer, firstname.lastname@example.org or call (406)728-0447.
