Unique, Creative Visions: The Art of Jessie Montez External Event Page
Montezuma, Kansas
The Stauth Museum will be hosting two very special exhibitions over the summer. They are vastly different in technique, content, and scope of work yet they are similar in the astonishing detail, complexity, and extraordinary skill needed to create each work of art. ////// Unique, Creative Visions: The Art of Jessie Montes -- Jessie, a western Kansas folk artist, creates his artwork from corrugated paperboard (cardboard). With no formal education, no schooling in art, and no previous history of art-making, Mr. Montes created complex visual statements with simple materials. Looking for a way to relax after his son and daughter were called to duty in the Persian Gulf War, he started cutting cardboard and experimented with different designs and themes on frames for their pictures. Soon he began to fill in the frames with landscapes, designs and portraits. 3-dimensional sculptures came soon after that and his artistic career in this unique medium was launched. Using only modest tools of cardboard cut in 1/4 strips, tweezers, a sharp razor blade and paste, his subject matter includes a mixture of ethnic and social influences, architectural themes, and popular culture. Jessie Montes (1935-2013) ////// We are expecting many groups for this exhibit, so please call in advance to schedule groups of 5 or more.

2017 WaMA’s Annual Conference in Moses Lake External Event Page
Moses Lake, Washington
“Oasis - As you walk through the desert of life, may you always find your oasis…” //// For visitors museums serve as an oasis full of precious items and inspiring stories. They can transport visitors to places far from the everyday world. But for museum professionals, that place of respite can sometimes be a mirage. Hectic deadlines, limited funds, long hours, and public indifference can lead museum workers to search for well-traveled paths through the desert. Thankfully there are sources of support; like desert blooms, museum professionals are finding ways to tap deep into those sources to restore beauty. Just as water runs beneath the surface of an arid desert, your WaMA colleagues offer wellsprings to create your personal oasis. Rediscover your personal haven and share it with others at the 2017 WaMA Annual Meeting in Moses Lake, WA.
