We are looking for submissions for our October exhibit, ” Dilemma Twentieth Century Art” to be displayed October 14-November 11. Artists are to select an artist and movement from the twentieth century. Two or more paintings will be hung along with photos of the inspiring artists’ paintings. Any subject and techniques are encouraged. Artists are to select a movement about which they have little or no experience, but find tantalizing. A write-up about the choices will be hung with the artwork. Submit the photos and write ups to the Center for copying and hanging. Also, send information about yourself and your art for entering the show.
Some suggestions for twentieth century movements are: Cubism, Minimalism, Social Realism, Dada, Fauve, Surrealism, Expressionism, Pop, Kinetic, Collage and Constructionism, Conceptual, Mixed media, Political, Film

Plein Air on the Yellowstone, a week-long paint-out sponsored by the Livingston Center for Art and Culture, culminated in an exhibit, on display for the Livingston Art Walk on Friday, August 22 from 5:30 to 8:00 PM. With thirty artists from Montana, Utah, Idaho, Minnesota, and Texas, this 6th annual event was the largest and most successful yet! The artists checked in over the weekend, and had their blank canvasses stamped with the date to show that all submitted works were created during the week of the paint-out.
All works were created “en plein air”, which means that the artists painted outdoors, onsite, attempting to capture a moment in time. The artists met the challenges of changing light conditions, wind, rain, and sun. The artists painted at the Livingston Farmer’s Market, allowing the community to enjoy watching the paintings as they progressed. The week’s events also included a plein air painting demonstration by Gardiner artist, Shirl Ireland
Each artist turned in their best three wet paintings Friday morning for a juried exhibit, with Loretta Domaszewski of Bozeman judging. Prizes were awarded as follows:
Stephanie Revennaugh of Livingston, MT
Robert Spannring of Livingston, MT
Elizabeth Hughes Bass of Yaak, MT
RJ Newhall of Livingston, MT
Connie Sample of Houston, TX
Greg Scheibel of Bozeman, MT
Steve Aller of Big Timber, MT
Jodi Weitzman of Bozeman, MT (This painting has been chosen for next year’s Plein Air poster)
People’s Choice: Lyn StClair of Livingston, MT
All works from the 2014 Plein Air Competition
will remain on display at LCAC through September 13.
