Lee Silliman’s exhibition “Homestead Fever: Celebrating the Early Settlers of the High Plains,” opened Friday, September 7th, to a crowd of Central Montanans out to welcome Lee and his photographs, see Pat Ginnaty’s art, and listen to the music talents of visiting musician, Linda McKenzie.
Lee Silliman is an educator and archivist with a passion for early Western engravings and the history of the homestead era. Lee’s photographs in this exhibition were taken across Fergus and Choteau Counties using a large-view camera: 8 by 10 inches! These haunting and crisp black-and-white photographs illustrate the resilience and struggles of early Central Montanans.
Thanks to all who came out for a very special opening and stop by during the month of September to catch local artist Pat Ginnaty’s paintings and drawings, as well as “Homestead Fever.” Both artists take advantage of some Central Montana “landmarks” so stop by to recognize your favorite this month!
On the Gift Shop Side of the Gallery, the Lewistown Art Center will feature a special exhibition of Pat Ginnity’s work. Pat is a local, self-taught artist who will display a range of his favorite media, from sculpture to paint to ballpoint pen.
