In Jon Lodge's words, his opening reception of MATRIXXMODULATION was a "beautiful, energized, collective, creative Thing." And it was. Thank you to everyone who braved yet another night of snow to join us. I am most grateful to Jon, who agreed to mount this exhibition at the 11th hour (after the previously scheduled one cancelled) and stepped immediately in to work with Jodi Lightner's and Keeara Rhoades' students on collaborative pieces, shared his experience and unique perspectives and, overall, was an enthusiastic, curious presence on campus.
MATRIXXMODULATION is up through March 28th. Gallery hours are M-F 8-4 (except for early closing on Tuesday, March 5th and closure on Wednesday, March 6th. You can call Rebecca in the Art Department office at 657-2324 to confirm). PM me about possible visiting beyond regular scheduled hours.

"JPEG/MPEG Time Window Progression (Life as an Artist)", a performance and talk by Jon Lodge in conjunction with this exhibition.
What do the senior art critic of New York Magazine Jerry Saltz and Big Gulp cups have to do with Jon Lodge's JPEG/MPEG Time Window Progression (Life as an Artist) event coming up next week - in conjunction with his MATRIXXMODULATION exhibition, Wednesday, March 13th, 6:30 pm in LI 148, the auditorium just east of Northcutt Steele Gallery at MSU Billings? Hint: it may just be part of the audience participation of this Happening... And it might just have to do with Jon's planned random/stochastic mindset...Come and find out.
Thank you to my Intrepid Gallery Warriors (Morgan Syring, Terri Porta, David Correa, Laura Meintjes, Kari Adams, Liz May) who assisted in this fab event and, in particular, David for these photos! And to Jane Waggoner Deschner for her experienced eye.
