Event Details

Petrichor will feature three Montana State University faculty, Christina Z. Anderson, Gezine Janzen, and Ian Van Coller. Accompanying each instructor will be two of their mentees, chosen for their high accomplishments as artists, Allie Brazzle, Megan Hansen, Hilary Honadel, Laurel McKay, Jessica Hays, and August Schield. This exhibition will celebrate the connections between Mentor and Mentee, while introducing a new wave of artists into the Bozeman community.
“Frequently, after periods of near drought, when the first rains encounter dry soils, earth rises to the air creating the most remarkable and memorable scent, petrichor. This exhibition celebrates the moment when mentees rise, meeting the challenges and successes of their mentors, in an indefinably unique way as indistinguishable as the air during the first rains. Three uniquely accomplished Professors at Montana State University were given the task, choose two mentees to exhibit alongside them. The resulting mentees chosen for this exhibition represent, not only some of the strongest emerging artists in the community, but those who bring with them a flood of creative vigor, and insight that has inspired their mentors to stand beside them and share just how much of a privilege and honor to work alongside them.”

An opening reception will be held May 3rd from 6-8pm, Mentors from Montana State University & their Mentees will be in attendance.
