AUTUMN ARTWALK | october 6, 2017 | 5 - 9 pm

For the ArtWalk, this Friday, October 6, from 5 to 9 p.m. — in addition to everything else, of course — Toucan will feature the hand-stitched artwork of Red Lodge-based artist Maggy Rozycki Hiltner. In an exhibition of all new work, Maggy’s needle-sharp interpretation of the human condition will be on display in her signature, darkly humorous style. It is always a great pleasure when we get to acknowledge and celebrate Toucan’s long relationship with Maggy by showing her latest work. Her art, while easily interpreted as nostalgic, witty, maybe quirky, it is also, and more pointedly so, a commentary on that nostalgia, rendered with that wit and unexpected idiosyncrasy. And if that sounds like too much, well, of course they're just fun to look at too, to laugh with, and to be around ... and they don't need to be anything more than that.

This exhibit of Maggy’s work will be particularly fun and approachable because we will be showing a large group of small works — each just 5” x 7” — that will be ripe for the picking, ready to find new homes.

We look forward to seeing everyone. It looks like the weather will be lovely so it should be a nice night to be out and about in downtown Billings.
