About:

This exhibition organized by the Hockaday Museum of Art features new works by Montana artists Jessica Glenn and Amy Brakeman Livezey. This two-person exhibit focuses on themes and stories of historic women of the American West told through two distinct contemporary artistic styles.

Artist Bios:

Amy Brakeman Livezey – Livezey worked her way from the midwest to the Western states and has resided in Helen, Montana since 1993. She began her creative career with a focus on independent filmmaking, which allowed her to explore a full range of interests: history, language, visual art, and music. Over the years, Livezey drifted towards jobs that had a creative bent, but in 2017 she decided to eschew any work that toook her away from personal expression and rededicate herself to her art practice. Since that time, she has become known throughout the region for her depictions of historic subjects and abstract expressionist fields. Using paint, subtraction tools, bits of ephemera, and photo transfer techniques, Livezey expresses in modern form her interest in Western history, feminism, the human form, and portraiture. Her studio is adjacent to that of her husband, landscape artist Dale Livezey.

 

Jessica Glenn – Jessica grew up drawing and painting in rural northwestern Pennsylvania and earned her B.F.A. in illustration from Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She has lived in Montana for 22 years and currently calls Missoula home. Her paintings are an homage to the people, architecture, flora, and fauna of the Old and New West. She can often be found exploring Montana’s back roads and mountain trails, gathering inspiration from historic places, rusty trucks, and native wildflowers. Jessica is a signature member of the Montana Watercolor Society, and exhibits her award-winning work in shows all across the nation.
