Art in the Jailhouse: Lindsey Meyers ­­Carroll

May 2 – June 13

Artist reception Friday, May 5th, 5:30-7:30pm
FREE and open to the public

A Collaboration Between People and Place: Seasons is an exhibition displaying four large-scale charcoal drawings by artist Lindsey Meyers Carroll. By expanding on the art traditions of portraiture and landscape, Carroll intertwines contemporary Montanans with elements of the season which best reflect—and celebrate—the individual shown. Growing out of an original inquiry of what qualities make a Montanan distinctly Montanan, this exhibition ultimately is a prelude to a broader examination of the collaboration that occurs between a place and the people that occupy it.

Often described as surrealistic, Carroll’s drawings blur the lines between reality and the imaginary. By melding disparate subject matter in unexpected ways, each drawing becomes a vehicle for inquiry, examination and discovery. Carroll was a recipient of the Myrna Loy Center’s Grants to Artists program and this exhibition is supported by that grant.
