Watch More TV | by Animoscillator

Consumer technology is often discarded before its time is truly up. Televisions, an integral part of our daily lives, are often thought to be utilitarian and mundane but when pushed beyond their intended purpose they can be used to create something more. When grouped together they can create something new.

While their electrons are still firing. Animoscillator invites you to Watch More TV.

Delineated Daydreams

by Jacob Gavin

As a collage artist, I find comfort in the unknown - I explore this by frequenting thrift shops and yard sales. I search for books, magazines, brochures, and everything in between; flipping through their old dusty pages until I find an image that strikes me and inspires me to bring it into a new light. I feel that not all art needs to have a deep meaning, and most of my pieces come from that point of view, often with a touch of humor. I hope the viewer can find connection to my art in ways I could never imagine.

I am deeply inspired by textiles, shapes and protrusions that are unconventional to traditional collage, and have recently been adding these elements more aggressively following working in a larger scale. I want to bring a photograph to life, for the viewer to emotionally engage with the art in front of them, and feel the urge to physically touch (please refrain). By incorporating fabrics, gems, chains, rhinestones, and anything I can glue onto a wood panel – I find I’m able to bring people into my own imagination.

Immersion | by Sky

The two series on display are, in essence, created with the same basic concept in mind: Intuition, emotion, movement and their relationship with the process of making art.

To create these works, on both paper and canvas, I employ many different materials: Acrylic, oil, coffee, tea, pastels, dirt, graphite, ink, charcoal, chalk, wax, found papers and metals. Each has its own feeling and flow. Going forward I cannot imagine making work with just one type of media.

I employ all these ingredients in order to create works that express my subconscious thoughts and emotions. I create them with no preplanned motive beyond allowing my hand to move in the way it sees fit. Drawing shapes and adding colors as the piece develops until, at last, I feel it is complete.

Bozeman Film Society Presents: The Lost King

In 2012, after having been lost for over 500 years, the remains of King Richard III were discovered beneath a carpark in Leicester. The search had been orchestrated by an amateur historian, Philippa Langley, whose unrelenting research had been met with incomprehension by her friends and family and with skepticism by experts and academics. The Lost King is the life-affirming true story of a woman who refused to be ignored and who took on the country's most eminent historians, forcing them to think again about one of the most controversial kings in England's history.
