Dalgarno’s work will be available for viewing Feb. 1 through March 3, 2010. Dalgarno, a self-taught artist who was born and raised in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, is inspired by his ancestors’ strong bond with the sweeping vistas of the Canadian prairie. “I’m trying to show that the prairie landscape can be a fascinating place,” Dalgarno said of his work. With an attention to texture and the giant prairie sky, Dalgarno uses his own take on the “impasto” method applying thick acrylic on canvas to paint the colorful prairie landscapes featured in “Sculpted Landscapes.” Dalgarno’s painting “Rust” was featured in the “Art on the Plains” exhibition at the Plains Art Museum, Fargo, North Dakota. He has also exhibited in numerous group and solo shows across Western Canada and North Dakota. This exhibition — Dalgarno’s second Montana showing — is sponsored by The Montana Art Gallery Directors Association, a state-wide service organization for non-profit museums and galleries. Funding is also provided by the Montana Cultural & Aesthetic Trust and The Montana Arts Council. The Montana Western Museum and Art Gallery is located in Montana Western’s Main Hall and is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Montana Western’s remarkable differences are featured in 30-second radio and TV spots airing in March, April, May and June 2013 and feature UMW's four Carnegie Professors of the Year. Click here to view the spot.
