Artist in Residence Beth Korth will be making a special presentation in the Northwest Gallery inside Cabre Gym on Thursday, October 26, and the public is invited to attend both free events being held that day. The first is a brown bag lunch “Artist’s Talk” beginning at noon, and the second is an exhibition reception at 7 p.m.
Korth is currently the art education and visitor’s center manager at Tippet Rise Art Center in Fishtail, Montana against the backdrop of the Beartooth Mountains. A professional artist herself, she began working at Tippet Rise during its inaugural season when it opened to the public in the summer of 2016, and has conducted painting and printmaking workshops across the country and in Japan. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Wyoming, and an MFA from the University of Montana, Korth has taught students ranging from kindergarten through the 12th grade, as well as the college level.
In addition to the Artist’s Talk and reception on October 26, Korth will be creating artwork onsite at Northwest College from October 23-25. The campus community and public are invited to attend those work sessions as well.
