ART: FIRST FRIDAY

This month we'll be featuring three art experiences:

Linds Sanders will be featuring: “Haiga Graph: A Haiku Art Collaboration” which utilizes the haiku of California author, Andrew Dugas. Art, the postal system, and serendipity united these two artists over the 980 miles separating their mailboxes. 

In 2012, Andrew began writing and mailing his haiku to strangers and friends alike, concluding after sending his 1,001st postcard. In 2013, Linds received one of these postcards, prompting her to pursue a similar project three years later. With Andrew's direction and mentorship, Linds sent an original piece of artwork to a stranger every day in 2016. Last year they met for the first time in person and began collaboration on "HaigaGraph: A Haiku Art Collaboration". Andrew wrote and sent Linds haiku that inspired the artwork. As a nod to their beginnings, all the small works are 5 by 7 inches, the size of a postcard.

Experience the union of visual art and haiku in this series of small artworks that celebrate the changing seasons, quiet morning moments, and the realizations that can be found in the rain beating against the kitchen window.

Heather Schwartz Hockenbrough will be featuring her stunning large-scale series: “Nature’s Chemical Canvas: A Reincarnation.” Both shows will be on display through the end of February. 

Kate Jordan & Bruno Augusto of “Arts & Above” present an intimate evening of performance works that describe their stories interwoven to live music by Bruno. It encompasses art installation, film, music, and dance.

LIVE MUSIC: Brandon Zook and Brendon Mount

Brandon Zook is a solo performer from Missoula. Drawing from influences like Iron and Wine and David Bazan, subtlety is a virtue that finds it's way into his melodies and guitar playing. His songs are simple and sparing, and they provide plenty of natural imagery and ask more questions than they provide answers.

Brendon Mount is a Wyoming native now hailing from Portland, OR. A multi-instrumentalist, Mount recently released his debut album, This is Nothing New, a psychedelic funk project that shows off a knack for story-telling that is both timeless and relevant to the madness of living in today's day and age. Brendon has been told his sound is similar to: Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Sufjan Stevens.

There will be some beer and wine available, and we welcome you to bring some more to share. Donations also welcome and appreciated to support the artists.

October and November First Friday

Art Exhibit by Ben Bloch

During October and November, The Public House will feature recent work by Montana artist Ben Bloch, with an opening reception on Friday, October 7 from 6-8 pm. Constructed from a combination of memory and observation, Bloch’s paintings reveal both the material qualities of paint and the inherent tensions of the modern western landscape—a landscape continually altered by roads, fences, and other infrastructure. 

Ben Bloch studied painting at the University of Montana before launching the experimental art space Goatsilk Gallery in Missoula (2002-2005). He recently completed an artist’s residency in Virginia City for “Reimagine Montana,” an ongoing project funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Park Service with the Montana Preservation Alliance.

Missoula Tango Practica

In conjunction with the art exhibit, Missoula Tango will be hosting their Friday Practica from 6:00-7:30. This is a weekly event for dancers of all skill levels. Cost is $5. Learn more at the Missoula Tango Facebook Page
