A former University of Montana art faculty member and her associate have teamed to present “Middle West,” a new exhibit. Former UM Adjunct Professor Nicole Pietrantoni and Amy Sacksteder, associate professor of art at Eastern Michigan University, work together as the two-person team “Island Projects.” The exhibit will be on display from Feb. 25 to March 29 at the University Center Art Gallery.
An opening reception for the exhibit will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28, at the UC Gallery on the second floor of the UC. The event is free and open to the public.
“Middle West” explores landscape, place and the idea of the West. With a shared interest in the relationship between human beings and nature, Pietrantoni and Sacksteder investigate nature as an accumulation of processes, perceptions and narratives.
The UC Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday during the academic year.
