The Carbon County Arts Guild is happy to announce the three featured artists for the upcoming Art in the Beartooths fund-raiser to be held Saturday, July 13, 2019. They are Terry Cooke Hall from Bozeman, Montana, Sonja Caywood from Dayton, Wyoming and Marcia Selsor from Red Lodge. These three remarkable signature artists, along with 25 other notable artists, will participate in Art in the Beartooths, Saturday, July 13, 2019 at Lions Park in Red Lodge. Visitors can watch the artists create art from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for free. At 4 p.m. the ticketed event begins with refreshments, entertainment and a last look at the art created during the day. Dinner is at 5 p.m. and the live auction starts at 6 p.m. Tickets for the event can be purchased by calling the Carbon County Arts Guild. Hall and Caywood are painters each with a vibrant use of color and texture in their compositions. Selsor is a ceramic artist whose incredible organic vessels are a result of experimentation with the clay surface and firing process.

Terry Cooke Hall states her passion for art as a youth led her to numerous classes and workshops in graphic design and illustration, including studies of the works of the Golden Age illustrators. In 1978, Hall put her training into use by illustrating for land development firms in Southern California. After 15 years, Hall left her job and cofounded a commercial art business. Since 2006, Hall has focused exclusively on developing a fine art career that has strong roots in California impressionism. She has studied under nationally-known artists with an intense focus on foundational principles of fine art, impressionistic light and color. Hall’s realistic figures are set in an imaginary world of colorful winds or swirling skies, often backlit by an abstraction of the sun or moon using color, patterns, and textural elements to provide a unique contemporary style.

Red Lodge artist Marcia Selsor is a Professor Emerita from Montana State University-Billings where she taught for 25 years, chaired the Art Department, was the elected President of the Academic Senate, and wrote grants to support the Art Department Outreach Programs. Selsor served as the Director of the Ceramics Program for the University of Hawaii in 2005 and taught at University of Texas Brownsville as a guest lecturer.

As a recognized artist, Selsor has been listed in Who’s Who in American Art since the 1980s. She is an active exhibiting artist including many international exhibitions. Selsor received two Fulbright Fellowships and a National Endowment for the Humanities grant for studies in Theology/Spirituality at Fordham University. In addition, Marcia Selsor has served on several boards related to the field of ceramic arts as well as the Mental Health Center Foundation in Billings, Montana.

Sonja Caywood was born in Sheridan, Wyoming but raised in Montana. She spent summers in settings reminiscent of Charles M. Russell paintings, with mess-wagons, tents, tipi’s and a rope corral. Being immersed in nature, far from modern distractions, Caywood learned to study and appreciate the world around her. Animals and livestock are prominent not only in her memories but also in her paintings.

In 2012, Caywood lost her full-time job and feel’s that it was a blessing because led to her lifelong dream of painting. She lives with her husband at the foot of the Bighorn Mountains near the Montana line in Dayton, Wyoming.

Details about the event and all participating artists will be updated regularly on the Guild’s website.
