Painting and ceramics unite in “Co-Adaptation,” a new art exhibit by University of Montana students Claire Melli and Sarah Tancred. The compelling show – displaying a juxtaposition of vastly different mediums – will open at the University Center Gallery on Monday, Aug. 27.
Melli and Tancred are currently pursuing master’s degrees at UM’s School of Art, and decided to collaborate on an exhibit that explores the complex meaning of “home.” Melli is a painter and enjoys the simplicity of the craft, while Tancred creates ceramic objects that bring back memories of people or places in time.
An opening reception for the show will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30, at the gallery, located in UC Room 227. The exhibit will be on display until Sept. 28.
The UC Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday during the academic year. To learn more, visit http://www.umt.edu/uc/ucg.
