Exhibition Details

Richard Buswell: CLOSE TO HOME
January 19 - April 13, 2018
Opening Reception on Friday, January 19th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm
For more than four decades, Richard Buswell has trained his camera on the landscape of Montana, with its abandoned and overgrown homesteads and majestic, never-ending skies. His black-and-white photographs frame cast-off, common things to reveal abstract patterns in the tradition of twentieth-century modernist photography. Buswell describes his work as more interpretive and abstract than documentary. The images explore the junction where decaying artifacts become visual echoes of the past. 
Richard Buswell: Close to Home was organized by the Montana Museum of Art & Culture at The University of Montana, Missoula, Montana.
