Art: Renoir, Gauguin exhibit is a must

There's an awesome art show at the University of Montana. Awesome means that there are three original Renoir paintings, one early Gauguin and several other beautiful oil paintings by John William Waterhouse and Max Ernst.

I'm in awe that Missoula has another art happening that I wish were a destination for more Missoulians. Kids, bring your parents. Grandparents, bring your grandkids. You won't be disappointed.

Because of a tight budget at the Montana Museum of Art and Culture, the gallery hours are fewer than I would like. Perhaps more support would allow for more accessibility.

You don't want to miss this. For more information, go to or call 243-2019. See you there!
