iAIR Exhibition
Monday October 29 – Wednesday November 7, 2012
Public Reception on Thursday November 1, 6:30 – 8:30PM
At the Helen E. Copeland Gallery, Haynes Hall

 The Montana State University School of Art invites the public to the Ways of Seeing: iAIR Lecture on Tuesday 16 October, 5:30 – 6:30PM, Cheever 215. The Ways of Seeing lecture is an introduction to the School of Art’s 2012 International Artist in Residence (iAIR), Timothy Pugh, who will be talking about his practice.

Timothy Pugh is an environmental installation artist, based in Wales, who is involved in the ongoing practice of constructing sculptures and sketching drawing that make use of natural materials and a wide range of mixed media. The scale, structure and colour of the work is determined by what materials are available, the interesting effects of erosion and the consequence of changing tides and seasons.

Tim will also be exhibiting his work in the Helen E. Copeland Gallery Monday 10/29 – Wednesday 11/7, with a public reception on Thursday 11/1, 6:30 – 8:30PM. His exhibition will consist of work that he generates in response to his residency at Montana State University’s School of Art. Tim will be in residence at the School of Art until Saturday November 17, 2012.

The iAIR program at MSU Bozeman’s School of Art was created in 2011 to foster an environment of international artistic exchange while providing a rich working experience for the artist to practice and grow.  The School of Art strives to cultivate a dialogue between the international art community and the community of Bozeman, Montana.  The iAIR program at the School of Art is supported in part by the Beulah Glaze Waller Endowment.

Modulation by TeaYoun Kim-Kassor

Modulation
by TeaYoun Kim-Kassor

Friday 1 June – Thursday 20 September 2012

Artist Talk on Thursday 13 September 2012, 5:10 – 6:30PM
in Room 215, Cheever Hall

Public Reception on Thursday 13 September 2012, 6:30 – 8:30PM
At the Helen E. Copeland Gallery, Haynes Hall

Montana State University School of Art and the Helen E. Copeland Gallery invite the public to “Modulation”, an installation by TeaYoun Kim-Kasser. The artist uses polyester fabric and acid dyes to create the feeling of a partnership with the fabric in the creation of the piece; allowing the acid dye to not only respond to the actions of the painting, but also the fabric itself. The combination of the fabric and the dye constitute balance just as the different hued layers of sand in our own bottle of time reflect our history; memories, origins and destinations of our lives.

The artist states: “I have lived in three different cultures and this cross-cultural experience brings me to question who I am, where I am, and if location is a catalyst. Through this installation, I have tried to depict how time and space, but more particularly allowing us to value their importance, affects our identities”.

TeaYoun Kim-Kassor is originally from South Korea where she received her B.F.A. in Fiber Arts.  She continued her research in Art Education as the Japanese equivalent of a Fulbright Scholar at Saitama University in Japan where she earned an M.A.T. In America, TeaYoun continued her exploration of fine arts in the M.F.A program at the University of Tennessee with a focus on installation.  Currently, she is teaching as an Assistant professor of Art at a Georgia College in GA.

TeaYoun’s art has been supported by the Folklore Museum in Sendai, Japan, the National Performance Network (supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, and the Nathan Cummings Foundation), CESTA in Tabor, Czech Republic, and Can Serrat in Barcelona, Spain.

This exhibition is free and open to the public. The Helen E. Copeland Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9AM – 5PM (closed on weekends and holidays). The gallery is located on the Montana State University Bozeman campus, on the second floor of Haynes Hall.

Ernest Forward – Some Strings Attached

ERNEST FORWARD SOME STRINGS ATTACHED
Monday April 2 – Friday April 6, 2012
Oral Defense on Monday April 2, 11AM
Reception Performance on Wednesday April 4, 6:30 – 8:30PM
At the Helen E. Copeland Gallery, Haynes Hall

Montana State University School of Art and the Helen E. Copeland Gallery invite the public to the premiere of “Some Strings Attached”, an MFA thesis exhibition by artist Ernest Forward.

Forward’s thesis exhibition includes a body of work installed to create the environment as a “Haptiacle” created for the completion of Mr. Forward’s degree of Master of Fine Arts at Montana State University – Bozeman.
This new word that the artist created, “Haptiacle”, is formed by combining two words Haptic and Spectacle. He defines Haptiacle as “a hands on event or performance, designed for viewer transformation that is visually striking that can be seen, viewed, especially something of a remarkable or impressive nature accessible to all.”

This Haptiacle is the first of its kind, never performed before until now. This is the new Americana approach of ceramics, art, and the exhibition space. After the installation of this show the artist has relinquished the control to the viewers for a full Haptiacle experience with the complete elimination of the confinement of the gallery walls. This show exists in every place that has access to the Internet and is fully accessible to all around the world to provide an abundance of memories and to provoke the imagination. It is the artist’s intent to raise awareness of ritual involving the handling, breaking and performance aspect of ceramic objects.

The exhibition dates are Monday April 2 – Friday April 6, 2012, and it is free and open to the public. There will be an opening reception and performance on Wednesday April 6 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. The Helen E. Copeland Gallery is located within The School of Art’s Haynes Hall, on the second floor and is open Monday through Friday, 9:00AM – 5:00PM.
