In 2016, Bitterroot artist Linda Stoudt made a generous offer to gift her works to MAM’s collection. This exhibition features the 24 artworks that were selected from the voluminous offering that Stoudt made available. When Stoudt’s husband of 42 years died from cancer in 2012, part of her grieving process was to make art. Despite their small scale, the works carry the substantial weight of their content. Taken together, her paintings lay bare the artist’s grief and healing after profound loss.
Connect with artists and MAM’s art community on the First Friday of each month from 5 to 8 PM. Enjoy live music by KBGA, light refreshments, and a gallery talk at 7 PM. Thank you to the Missoulian for supporting First Fridays at MAM.
