Jennifer Combe is a Missoula art educator whose work questions the language and imagery we use to define ourselves, our families, and our communities.  Drawing from abstraction, children’s drawings, and her experiences as a mother, her exhibition, Shift, Shift, takes a deeply personal look at the ever-changing identities and often overwhelming nature of motherhood. Sara Joyce: Myth, Dream, and Dramatic Episodes
September 9 - December 30, 2016Opening Reception - September 9th, 5:30 pm - 8 pm
Sara Joyce was a prolific Idaho artist with an abundance of inspiration.  She saw little division between the day-to-day world and that of dreams and myths.  Her work, which flowed from writings about her thoughts and dreams, spans many mediums ranging from smaller drawings and paintings to larger pieces in oil and sculptures of fabric and clay. 
 
This exhibition, coordinated by the Prichard Art Gallery of the University of Idaho, will be at the museum from September through the end of 2016.
