Bookfest Art Walk

**LIMIT 15 - PRE-REGISTER HERE.


The Bookfest Art Walk begins at Radius Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in the historic Higgins building.  Gallery owner and literary scholar Lisa Simon will take you on a spin of the current exhibition which features three Montana artists--James Todd, Megan Moore and Josh DeWeese.  Especially for the bookfest, Radius will exhibit the original wood-engraved portraits of writers first seen in The Last Best Place Anthology 28 years ago!  Richard Hugo, James Welch, Ivan Doig, Norman Maclean, Tom McGuane--all your favorites meticulously engraved by a Montana artist! 

A volunteer will then guide you to the Missoula Art Museum for an investigation of new exhibitions that engage storytelling in different ways: Stephen Glueckert’s humorous wit points to current affairs; Leslie Van Stavern Millar II’s whimsical constructions imagine Queen Elizabeth the First time traveling to Montana; Willem Volkersz explores the language of drawing and his adopted homeland; “Not Vanishing” is a survey of contemporary American Indian art; Courtney Blazon’s stream-of-consciousness narrative drawings center on the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora and “The Year Without A Summer;” and Karen McAlister Shimoda takes viewers on a walk through northwestern forests.
