Dawson Community College Gallery 126 is proud to introduce
its third season of exhibits for Fall 2009 – Spring 2010

July 6 –October 9 M.A. Papanek-Miller “. . .and deer began to dance around the fire.”

My intentions are to initiate a dialogue or conversation with the viewer through the layers of visual information that I have provided as a vital component of my artistic process. My art works are seasoned with reflections from stories, songs and rhymes of child hood, that are then woven with a deep concern that I have for the environment specifically regarding my current interests involving our changing relationships with animals and water. I continue to be attracted to toys as social barometers and cultural souvenirs, as I believe that toys are beautiful, magical and fun objects and that they bridge our diverse global population serving as “contemporary amulets”.

October 12 – November 20 Tom Shoush Ex Meus Perspective

The title of this show - ex meus perspective (from my perspective) - perfectly encapsulates my response to those who ask why I paint. Why does anyone paint? Why do people immerse themselves in the craft of song? (Scientists believe that birds sometimes sing merely because they want to sing). Why is a quiet day spent watching shadows slip slowly across the landscape or a quiet night contemplating the night sky so rewarding? Because we are compelled to do so. We are compelled to seek understanding and to put a personal perspective to what we experience in our existence. Thus, I am compelled to record the observations and feelings of this wonderful experience we call life.

November 23 - December 11 DCC Fall Student Art Show Spectacular

Dawson Community College has a wealth of creative student artists with varied interests & educational goals. It is a privilege to present the distinctive artworks of these talented artists.

December 14 – February 5 Tucker Bolton, Marcus Hartse . . . But Ain’t We Got Fun 4 Miles City Artists Vida Landa, Mark Browning

Tucker Bolton and three of his Miles City friends join together for this exhibit. All four talented award winning inveterate artists help to keep the arts alive in Miles City, not only creating their own outstanding artwork, but supporting the entire artistic community. Don’t miss this show, and if you can come to the opening reception I assure you it will be a rollicking good time. Who knows maybe Tucker will play at his own reception..

February 8 – March 5 Kevin Layton New Work

Emerging artist Kevin Layton graduated from Eastern Oregon University in 2006. He has been the Education Director at Custer County Art and Heritage Center in Miles City since 2008. Kevin works with a variety of media in painting, drawing, printmaking, and ceramics. A process oriented kind of guy, he enjoys exploring ideas and materials, as much, as the finished product. Always finding and incorporating found objects and recycling unique raw materials, Kevin’s artwork is very conceptual and he lets this show through his multi-layered images.

March 8 – April 16 Laura Youngbird Waabi-Giziibiigiingwe

Laura is an artist and art educator at the Circle of Nations. She is an enrolled member of the Minnesota Chippewa, Grand Portage Band. “Ironic, I work in the type of institution that emotionally and spiritually crippled generations of Native people. Now we encourage our students to embrace their heritage. Art is healing. We didn’t have a word for art long ago. Art and life were one. I cannot live without art or making art. ‘My Work’ is how I communicate what can’t be put into words and documents my outrage at crimes that continue their brutal legacy. The dress and scratched out faces are symbolic of the "assimilation" forced on Native American children taken away to white boarding schools and indoctrinated into Eurocentric culture. Their identity both removed and dictated. Waabi Giziibiigiingwe in Anishinabe means white-washed and refers to policy of the early 1900's to assimilate Native people.”

April 19 - May 7 DCC Spring Student Art Show Stupendous

It is the final show of the season, as we come to the end of the academic year. Once again, we are proud to present the outstanding artworks of Dawson Community College’s talented, creative student artists.
