Outdoor Artists Showcased at Sola Café

No, we’re not talking about plein-air painters, stooped over easels beneath a sun-dappled mountainside. These are artists who depict outdoor scenes—in this case, to illustrate stories in Outside Bozeman magazine. After 15 years in business, O/B has published some dandies, and it’s high time we honored these talented artists with a show all their own.

From December 16 to January 31, twenty of our best paintings and illustrations will grace the walls of Sola Café, at the corner of Kagy and S. 3rd. Expect a wild assortment of subjects and mediums—paper-maché skiers, hand-painted Subarus, watercolor winterscapes, and digitally-rendered wild animals drag-racing the streets of Bozeman, to name a few. This may not be the most high-brow art show in town, but it’ll surely be the most interesting.

Art-minded Bozemanites may recognize a few longstanding figures—Parks Reece, Mimi Matsuda, Adair Peck, and Blaise Arsenault, for example—while being introduced to newer names like Stephen Downer, Ted Rechlin, and Mike Russo. What they all have in common is creativity and talent—loads of it.

Here’s the best part: each piece is for sale ($65 each), with proceeds benefitting Friends of Hyalite (FOH), a nonprofit organization that protects wintertime recreation in Hyalite Canyon. Without FOH, our favorite outdoor amphitheater would likely remain inaccessible all winter, for lack of funding to plow the road.

So swing by Sola this month and next, wander around with coffee in-hand, and enjoy the talents of our excellent outdoor artists—all while supporting Bozeman’s backyard playground.

Note: To purchase a print, contact Outside Bozeman at 582-8068 or [email protected]. All purchased prints can be picked up at our office after the show closes. See below for the status of all prints.
