Harold Schlotzhauer: The Shape of Motion

March 24, 2016 - July 3, 2016

Montana Masters LogoHarold Schlotzhauer’s approach is bold and playful, but dazzlingly serious in its intent to create engaging images that make the intangible real. Shapes, lines, and sweeping color dance together in choreographed movement to elicit a personal response from the viewer to Schlotzhauer’s visual language. That language is inspired by myriad sources, including the traditional Asian arts, graffiti, children’s toys, and the rhythms of nature. Harold Schlotzhauer will have a gallery talk on Thursday, May 19, 2016 from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
