Stumptown Art Studio is featuring two Montana artists from the Flathead Valley beginning with an opening reception on Thursday, June 2 from 6-9 p.m. The mixed media sculptures of Troy Case and the pottery of Curt Jacobson will be on display through July 3 at the non-profit community art center in Whitefish.
Curt Jacobson is the technical director of the ceramics department at Flathead Valley Community College. His evolution in pottery spans many years, and he continues to explore the infinite combinations of materials and form.
Troy Case comes from a varied background, among them woodworking, leaving him with a strong sense of craftsmanship, composition and a fervent work ethic. His first explorations in clay were experienced right here as a clay co-op member at Stumptown Art Studio. He went on to get his fine art degree through the University of Montana.
Stumptown Art Studio was founded in 1995 and in it’s 20 years has evolved with the many programs that provide art experiences to people of all ages and abilities. From classes and workshops, to exhibits, outreach programs and public art projects, the studio is a vital part of the arts in the community of Whitefish and beyond.
