Husband St.  Frank Lloyd Wright’s Samara: A Mid-Century Dream Home explores the relationship between an architect and his clients, Dr. John and Kay Christian, as they worked together to create one family’s definition of an American dream home. Told through the juxtaposition of original objects and furniture, architectural fragments, rare archival materials, historic photographs, and video footage, this exhibit explores the creation of a Wright house made into a family home.

 

March 1 – May 9:  Richard Buswell-Close to Home, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, Monday – Saturday, Thursdays 11:00 am – 8:00 pm, Postal Plaza Gallery, 720 S. Husband St.  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.
