For ArtWalk on Friday, October 7, 2016, Toucan will feature paintings by Montana artist Sarah Morris. Her paintings express a sympathetic vision of the untrammeled Montana landscape and the nonhuman creatures that inhabit it. With bold strokes of color, Morris intends to preserve and transmit the passion she feels for the place she calls home.
We will also have new work by Allison O'Donnell, Christine Sutton, and Delon Slevira among all of our other artists and artisans, a roster that is more than 40 strong.
And on Friday, as well, Billings singer/songwriter Lindsey Jacobsen will be filling the great Toucan space with her stripped-down roots blues and folk rock sound. Voted Female Vocal Act of the Year at the Magic City Music Awards, Lindsey will be a great addition to the ArtWalk scene.
With more than 30 years on Montana Avenue, 22 years on the ArtWalk, and 10 years under its current ownership, Toucan hopes to continue to provide a place where people from Billings (as well as from around the country and occasionally around the world) can experience the creativity taking place in our city, our state, and our region.
If you're in Billings on Friday, we hope you will join us!
