New and collected paintings from a 12 year journey to and from Italy.  
A  journey begins with a moment in time.  Doug Turman’s began when, in  2004, he traveled from his home in Helena to Italy for the first time.  Italy, a place that had already featured prominently in his imagination,  a place of tremendous beauty, with a cultural tradition so rich that to  be influenced and inspired by it was inevitable.  For Turman, that  influence first appeared in the hand crafted Italian Earth Oil paints he  began to use, with pigments that represent the physical and emotional  landscape that help to illuminate his Italian journey.  Turman’s  artworks are manifestations of memories, impressions, and passions.  After returning to Italy again and again his paintings express a depth  of feeling and complexity that has an emotional impact impossible to  capture in a photograph.

White Gold: Montana Dreams is an exhibition by local ceramic artist Robert Harrison.  The exhibition centers around two large-scale installations: one, a fluid wire structure holding ‘clouds’ of found porcelain pieces; the other, a historically-inclined series of Harrison’s well-known arch forms filled with porcelain items donated by the family of a retired Butte bisque distributor.  His exhibition will be on view at the museum from June 3 through August 26, 2016.  An artist talk will be scheduled shortly. 
The Holter Museum of Art thanks Bev Gibson, Western Spindle, and Bjerke Architects for sponsoring this exhibition.
