Opening Reception & Artist Talk | Untitled: Works by Geoffrey Stocking

Opening Reception & Artist Talk: Friday, July 12th, 5:30pm

About Geoffrey Stocking:

Using glazing techniques inspired by the Italian Renaissance painters, these non-objective paintings are created by the building up of numerous translucent layers of different colors. The mixing of actual colors is very limited. It is through optical mixing that the final color is perceived.

Within the composition there is a play between organic and in-organic shapes, simple and complex color spaces, and light and heavy lines. All of these elements together create a push / pull between the negative and positive space.

Geoffrey Stocking is the Chief Collections & Exhibitions Officer at the C.M. Russell Museum. He received his BFA in painting and drawing from the University of Montana. He has shown his work in numerous group exhibitions in Missoula, San Diego, Boston, and Great Falls.

This exhibition is curated by Nicole Maria Evans, Curator of Exhibitions and Collection at Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art. Exhibitions at the museum are supported in part by the Montana Arts Council, a state agency funded by the State of Montana, and the National Endowment for the Arts. We are funded in part by coal severance taxes paid based upon coal mined in Montana and deposited in Montana’s cultural and aesthetic projects trust fund. Additional funding is provided by museum members and the citizens of Cascade County, Davidson Family Foundation, D.A. Davidson, Horizon Credit Union, an anonymous donor, and Kelly’s Signs & Design.
