The University of Montana's Gallery of Visual Arts will showcase the work of Montana artist Tracy Linder in the exhibit "re: Sustenance" through Feb. 27.
The gallery will hold an opening reception for the exhibit from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 29. Linder will present an artist's talk at 6 p.m. The exhibit and opening reception is free and open to the public.
Linder's sculpture and installation work shows the strong connection of humanity to the land and the importance of our food sources. Linder, who lives in rural south-central Montana, uses natural and mechanical materials to show the relationships that sustain life.
Her work has been displayed throughout the nation. In 2001, she was commissioned by the U.S. General Services Administration to create artwork for the new border station between Sweetgrass and Coutts, Alberta.
The gallery's hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Monday by appointment. For more information call Cathryn Mallory at 243-2813 or e-mail email@example.com.
