“Where the Little People Live,” the first show for the 2020 spring semester at the Goodstein Visual Arts Center, is now on display through Feb. 6. An artist talk will take place Thursday, Feb. 6.

The show presents the works of Montana painter Carol Hartman. Hartman’s “large and colorful” oil paintings in the exhibit are done on birch panels and “ … depict the purity of our Bighorn Canyon wilderness,” she said.

“My artwork tends to be more involved with the human interaction with the landscape, specifically mankind’s impact upon the environment and the resulting effect it has had on today’s landscape. The power of an immersion into that experience during my residency at the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area near Lovell, Wyoming, inspired me to research early ‘stories’ from the region,” said Hartman.

The exhibition and talk are free and open to the public. The talk will take place in Room 102, beginning at noon Thursday, Feb. 6.

The Goodstein Visual Arts Gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The gallery and Room 102 are located in the Goodstein Visual Arts Center on the Casper College campus.
