The Holter Museum Store features over 70 Montana and regional artists. From ceramics to silk scarves, each work is a display of the unique talents of artists from right here in Helena to the far reaches of the state. The store also includes work in the Nicholson and Held Hallway galleries, displaying work by featured artists for one- and two-month cycles, as well as Juried Shows.
If you are interested in having your work shown in the Holter Museum Store, please contact the Store Manager, Paige Ferro at firstname.lastname@example.org. All artist submissions are reviewed by a committee to continue to ensure the mission of education and quality upheld by the Holter.
Larry Blackwood and Andrew Chanania are the featured Museum Store artists for March and April. You may find more of their work at their websites online.
Larry is a self-taught photographer with more than 40 years experience. He exhibits regularly in museums and galleries around the country and recently in China as well, including ten solo exhibitions in the last five years. His work has been published in major fine art photography publications including multiple portfolios in Lenswork and Black and White. Awards include prizes in international photography competitions as well as fine art grants and artist residencies.
Andrew focuses on making wood fired pottery for daily use and reflection. He is interested in making precise, measured forms that are glazed and transformed by the spontaneity of the wood firing process. The flames, wood ash, and introduction of salt and soda ash unpredictably alter the surface texture, quality, and colors.
Andrew grew up in Northern Virginia and was introduced to pottery as a high school student. Pottery quickly became his primary focus and he took a work-study position at a Hinckley Pottery in Washington DC, where he learned to make pottery in a professional setting. Andrew attended the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, where heearned a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts with a concentration in ceramics in May 2006.
