Kohoutek’s exhibition is up from now until Oct. 2, 2009 with an opening reception on Tuesday, Sept. 22 from 7 to 10 p.m. The colorful mixed-media exhibition includes linoleum cut prints, an acrylic painting and 16 ceramic works “My work is influenced by a world derived from a variety of 20th century visual resources,” Kohoutek said of his art. “From larger-than-life technicolor movies to television programs that depict social dysfunction and popular print media such as Ladies Home Journal and MAD magazines.” Born in North Dakota, Kohoutek later moved to Montana eventually earning a bachelor of arts degree from Montana State University in 1980 and a master of fine arts from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 1993. The Art of Ken Kohoutek exhibition was organized by Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art in Great Falls, Mont. and is traveling under the auspices of the Museum and Art Gallery Directors Association of Montana.
