Unseasonably warm temps and dry roads made the Friday afternoon drive to Billings a snap. I schlepped two sculptures to the Yellowstone Art Museum for an upcoming exhibit and fundraiser. The weekend was a spin of art world meetings and art shows along with a top-notch rodeo – a perfect mix of whiskey and wine.
Chase Hawks showcased the world’s best bullriders, saddle bronc riders and bareback riders. The annual event celebrated its 20th year, a fundraiser in honor of six-year-old boy Chase Hawks who lost his life in a farm accident.
Money raised from the events helps Montana families of children challenged with farm/ranch related accidents.
The T.L. Solien exhibit at the YAM was a shot of good juice to my soul - made my fingers itch to be in the studio with nothing but TONS of time to create (and create and create).
