Adair Peck’s creative and colorful papier mache life-sized trophy animal heads now adorn the walls of the Bozeman Public Library’s Atrium Gallery. This unique show will be on exhibit through December 30. Join the Bozeman Public Library Foundation for the Artist Opening Reception on Friday, December 5, 6:00-7:30 p.m., free and open to the public. “My work resonates with both children…and to the discerning interior decorators eye” said Peck who has figurative work that was both popular in school art auctions, as well as on the larger walls of the Yellowstone Club. Her creations are inspired by personalities and facial expressions of many of the people and animals she sees every day, as well as the legacy and lifestyle of ranchers and hunters. Peck finds the medium both meticulous and meditative adding “As I sculpt, I allow some of the lumpier forms to coexist with more refined details, allowing the personality of my subjects to emerge. We live in a rare place, where daily life is infused with western traditions, surrounded by beautiful wilderness and vast sky. By reinterpreting objects such as trophy heads, I hope to give the viewer a fresh, humorous take on our shared cultural inheritance,” added Peck.
The Bozeman Sculpture Park has merged with Gallatin Art Crossing to create an outdoor sculpture park that engages Bozeman residents and visitors with the work of leading sculptors in a lovely natural setting, and promotes Bozeman’s cultural profile in the northwestern region of the United States.
The Gallatin Art Crossing is a unique outdoor sculpture exhibit located in downtown Bozeman, The exhibit hosts a variety of artwork, introducing viewers to many artisic approaches.
