“A Lonely Business”: Isabelle Johnson’s Montana

November 3, 2015 - January 3, 2016

For decades, Montana proto-Modernist Isabelle Johnson worked unflaggingly and largely unsung in her chosen media of oil and watercolor, and in her chosen location of the family ranch in Absarokee. A spirited teacher who influenced many of Montana’s later artists, Johnson’s own extraordinary contribution was little recognized … until now. Following a major new book on Johnson’s life and work, this exhibition places Johnson’s work in its rightful leading role.
