Harold Schlotzhauer: Living in a Good Dream
Harold Schlotzhauer is an accomplished artist of 50 years. His exhibition, running through February 9, highlights a diverse array of works from the late 1960s to present, showcasing the continual progression of his unique vision of abstraction. Throughout the course of his career, Schlotzhauer has worked to refine his authentic style while redefining the language of abstraction in the wake of Abstract Expressionism and other movements of the mid-twentieth century. These paintings are edge-to-edge compositions constructed with arrangements of geometric forms, representational images, and amorphic shapes. Schlotzhauer finds steadfast joy in pure creation and it is apparent in these works. Don’t miss the chance to observe them at the Missoula Art Museum at 335 North Pattee, Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
