Valcana Elupt, 212 North 29th St, is showcasing the permanent installation of mixed media artist, Jon Lodge. Jon Lodge’s site specific installation at Valcana Elupt emulates the meditative mind fused with technical and chemical process of an elegant salon. Viewers may stop in during business hours and during bi-monthly ArtWalks. Hours are Tuesday and Thursday, 10am–7pm; Wednesday and Friday, 10am–6pm; Saturday, 10am–5pm; closed Sunday and Monday.
Lodge grew up in Red Lodge, Montana in the 50s and 60s. His visual art relates to his work as a jazz musician and photographer on the east coast in the 60s and 70s. Simple materials such as carbon particles, graphite and gesso form intricate patterns that generate abstractions of nature rather than portraying just how nature looks.
Selected solo exhibitions include the Missoula Art Museum, Missoula, MT, University of Wyoming Art Museum, Laramie, WY, Montana State University Art Museum, Billings, MT, Sun Valley Center for the Arts, Ketchum, ID, Nicolaysen Art Museum, Casper, WY, Paris Gibson Square Museum, Great Falls, MT.
