The ZACC is hosting MMIW: Awareness through Art Observing the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women

With works by Stephanie Hohn, Jen Buckley, Stella Nall, Monica Gilles-BringsYellow,

Windsong Redtail Hawk, David Speer,
Danielle Adler, & Tasheena WolfChief
Exhibiting in the Main Gallery through May


This May the ZACC is holding a visual art show in our Main Gallery centered around the
observance of the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.
This show aims to hold the space for artists of Indigenous experience to show work of protest in
whatever way they see fit. Sometimes art of protest incorporates symbols of revolt such as the red
handprint that has come to symbolize the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Movement.
Other times art of protest looks like visual expressions of anger or sadness, or sometimes even
defiant acts of radical joy and pride in the midst of grief and fear.
This show includes the work of artists Stephanie Hohn, Jen Buckley, Stella Nall, Monica
Gilles-BringsYellow, Windsong Redtail Hawk, David Speer, Danielle Adler, & Tasheena WolfChief.

 

This show is not available through our online gallery please instead visit this show in-person during open hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 12pm-4pm. If you have any questions or inquiries about this show or the artwork in it please give us a call at (406) 549-7555. 


CURRENTLY ON DISPLAY IN OUR BLACKFOOT COMMUNICATIONS GALLERIES

The ZACC is delighted to exhibit ‘Warrior Women’, works by Naomi Thornton, in our Blackfoot
Communications Gallery this May.
ABOUT WARRIOR WOMEN, in the Artist’s words
“In my artwork, I create dream landscapes that are places of healing and empowerment. In my
series “Warrior Women” I start with vintage photographs of women taken in the 1800’s and early
1900’s. My medium, collage, is a process of deconstructing and reassembling. I remove each
woman from the constraints of her time and locality and place her in a nurturing landscape
outside the bounds of everyday reality. In building the dream landscape, I carefully select each
piece to reflect and honor her story.
I have always been drawn to portrait photography, knowing that a photograph is a moment in
time, a real person with a unique story. The photographs I find are embedded within an historical
and cultural context. Some portraits occur within the experience of privilege while others are
shaped by colonization and exploitation. I seek to amplify women’s voices past and present and
reclaim the undervalued stories of women’s everyday experiences. I research the achievements
and struggles of women during each particular historical moment and locality to envision a
framework for each piece of art. I use found images from magazines, books and online resources
combined with paint, handmade papers, and text from old books to evoke a textured layering of
desires, hopes and dreams. Through my art, I intend to create a narrative of connection and safety,
of a way forward.
As a psychotherapist, I have witnessed the incredible resiliency of human beings to heal and reach
toward wholeness. In my art, I seek to reflect that part of the human spirit. My hope is that the
viewer will also enter the dreamscape I have created as a place of renewal and self-revelation.
I offer my gratitude to all the photographers, known and unknown, whose work is a catalyst to my
creative process.”

Mural in the Making
Works by Adalein Stokman
In the Youth Gallery through May

The ZACC is delighted to exhibit ‘Mural in the Making’, works by Adalein Stokman, in our Youth
Gallery for the month of May, with an opening on First Friday. 

Adalein is a 10 year-old Missoula painter who creates dreamy landscape scenes. Her favorite medium to use is oil
paint.
ABOUT ADALEIN, in the Artist’s words
“Art keeps me going in life. Everyday I go past a mural on my drive into town and hope that one
day a kid will go by my mural and say it is amazing. I want to do that in life. One day I hope I
become an artist so that when people see me they will say I am the person that painted murals all
over the world. I love to paint because it makes me feel happy, loved and accomplished. I have a
great neighbor that does so much for me and my family.”

This show is not available through our online gallery please instead visit this show in-person during open hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 12pm-4pm. If you have any questions or inquiries about this show or the artwork in it please give us a call at (406) 549-7555.
