UM Gallery to Host ‘Wither, Whether’ Exhibit

February 22, 2017

MISSOULA – An art exhibit featuring feminine identity will run in the University Center Gallery from Feb. 27 to March 30 at the University of Montana.

The gallery will host an opening reception for “Wither, Whether,” recently known as “Hushed Notion” by Paige Ward, from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, March 2. The event will include hors d’oeuvres.

In her artwork, Ward triggers multiple senses and uses metaphors that speak to “home” as part of the feminine identity. With a concentration in ceramics and instillations, Ward is fascinated with where people come from both physically and psychologically. She explores the transition and identity from her roles as both a professional and a mother through symbolic materials that relate to the feminine in all its forms.

The UC Gallery, a nonprofit program run by the Student Involvement Network, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
