Jen Erickson and Drifting and Longing in the Margie Wilkins Gallery
Join us on the First Friday of every month for an exhibition opening at the Lewistown Art Center. This month, on Friday, October 5th, from 5-7 PM, we’ll welcome a new artist to the Margie Wilkins Gallery, Jen Erickson. Jen’s exhibition “Drifting and Longing” will feature an array of two-dimensional works rich with color, texture, and detail.
Inspired by science and memory, Erickson first builds up multiple layers of paint and graphite before using an etching needle to “carve” back into the rich surface. In doing so, Erickson illuminates the process of making, literally exposing the layers of history in each piece. Responding to each carve, line by line, Erickson’s work straddles the line between in-progress and finished, resulting in perfectly imperfect compositions.
Drifting and Longing will be on display in the Margie Wilkins Gallery at the Lewistown Art Center throughout the month of October. Don’t miss the work of this talented artist! Jen has exhibited at several major museums across Montana, and we’re delighted to welcome her to Lewistown.
