Paint Outside the Lines: Montana Impressionists
January 10 through March 17
Sponsored by Two Medicine Gallery of Whitefish 

When viewing the Impressionist works of Terry Mimnaugh, Bye Bitney, Linda Tippetts, Carolyn Anderson, Tara Moore and Marnell Brown, it is hard to believe that when the European Impressionists first exhibited their paintings in the 1870s, art critics ridiculed the movement and the general public expressed outrage upon seeing such radical artistic techniques. Eventually, Impressionist paintings were viewed as highly valued masterpieces, and today have become unrivalled in their popular appeal. Drawn together by a common desire to bring a new kind of realism to painting, Impressionists astonished their contemporaries with their revolutionary treatment of color and light. Sunlight and dappled water, the evanescent atmosphere of outdoor scenes and fleeting moments in everyday life characterized their work. The Hockaday Museum is pleased to open a fine exhibition featuring six Montana Impressionists who, like their European predecessors, dare to depart from traditional painting styles and “Paint Outside the Lines.”
