Nancy Erickson: Encounters

28 Jul 2016 - 10 Sep 2016
Nancy Erickson is nationally-recognized fiber artist. Her artwork recognizes the individual dignity of wild creatures, often juxtaposing them with people or human environments.  Since the 1960s, she has created remarkable fabric constructions, quilts, paintings and drawings and is renowned for her pioneering organic free-floating quilted paintings.  This exhibition features her large-scale, free-form textile compositions which are inspired by the cave art found at Chauvet Pont d’Arc and Lascaux. Erickson was raised on a cattle ranch near Livingston, MT.  She holds a BA in Zoology and an MS in Nutrition from the University of Iowa and an MA and MFA from the University of Montana. Her work resides in numerous public and private collections and has been featured in over 500 exhibitions nationally and abroad, most recently in a fiber work symposium in Raleigh, NC, the Museum of Art & Design in NY, and in 2013 at the Montana Museum of Art & Culture.   This exhibition is travelled through MAGDA (Montana Art Gallery Director’s Association).
