Artists' Corner

Anne J. Banks, MFA ’68, showcased her collection of original collages, titled Secrets, at Gallery 10 in Washington, D.C. Banks says the collages are inspired by nature, memories, colors, landscape, architecture, and archetypal icons. “Secrets are mysteries hidden in the forms of art, subject to the viewer’s perception,” Banks says.

In partnership with the Montana Land Reliance, Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey, BA ’70, offered her original work, “Otter Lodge,” for auction at the fifth biennial Artists for Open Space dinner. The event helps fund MLR’s stewardship concerning critical Montana farmland, wildlife, watersheds, and ecosystems. In August, the Bigfork, Mont., artist also exhibited her newest paintings at Frame of Reference Contemporary Fine Art Gallery and at the Bigfork Festival of the Arts.
