“Home Coming,” art by Mimi Matsuda
Rockford Coffee Shop, 628 W. Main St.
Opening Reception: Saturday, Sept. 7, 3-6 p.m.
Mimi Matsuda of Bozeman will debut her soft pastel paintings with a great selection of original art, art cards and prints and light refreshments. Matsuda spent a decade working for the National Park Service in both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. The years spent living and teaching in the parks as a naturalist directly influenced her art work. Now she tells stories with her visual artwork as a painter. She hopes her art inspires others, especially the young, to respect and care for wildlife and wild lands. A portion of all sales from this show will go to the Yellowstone Park Foundation. The art show will be up through the months of September and October.

Back to school trends, fashion and poses are the subject matter of paintings on display from students ages 7-13, when they were donned with stylish garbs and posed for one another. They then developed the pieces into an acrylic painting on stretched canvas. Enjoy these character-filled representations of the posing figure through the month of September.
