Layers & Sediment: Steve Wellman Retrospective
March 22, 2011 - April 15, 2011Free
A resident of Butte, Montana, a city defined by a century of mining, Steve Wellman melds disparate elements from his life and the outside world into painterly, layered assemblage. This mid-career retrospective provides an opportunity to consider Wellman’s body of work within a larger context, to introduce him to new audiences, and to survey the myriad themes and mediums he has explored over the course of twenty years. While art historians’ carefully foot-noted monographs often build on decades or even centuries of earlier scholarship, this exhibition explores the history of the now.
