"Post-Rural" Sheehan Gallery

The first exhibit of the Sheehan Gallery’s  2014 fall season, “POST-RURAL,” opens August 29th and runs through October 8th. 

Originally curated by Assistant Professor of Art at University of Montana Missoula, Matt Hamon, this thought provoking display was brought to the Sheehan Gallery by one of the show’s initial participants and Whitman Assistant Professor of Art, Nicole Pietrantoni. The exhibition highlights a group of artists “whose work engages with the shifting notions of rural spaces.” In addition to the original nine individuals featured in this “loose collective,” three Walla Walla participants have been added, including artist and writer, Ian Boyden, and Whitman studio art professors, Michelle Acuff and Charles Timm-Ballard.
