LINDA LESLIE & JON WITHAM in conversation with LISA SIMON of RADIUS GALLERY
Art Talk & Signing
ROMANTIC NARRATIVE: THE CONTEMPORARY ART OF LINDA LESLIE
Tuesday, April 17th @ 7:00pm
Join us for an evening of art talk with painter Linda Leslie and John Witham on the debut of their uniquely collaborative book "Romantic Narrative: The Contemporary Art of Linda Leslie." A conversation with these collaborators will be facilitated by Lisa Simon, co-owner of Radius Gallery, where Linda's work can be seen.
Romantic Narrative: The Contemporary Art of Linda Leslie follows Missoula artist Linda Leslie’s 40-year progress in developing her technique, motifs and distinctive style of painting. Her approach to realism is fluid, intuitive and thought provoking, resulting in works that are enigmatic and contemplative.These paintings suggest a sensual, moody story that is never completely explicit, but which the viewer senses is present in the otherwise graceful, quiet figures and landscapes. Written by husband and creative collaborator, award-winning filmmaker John Witham, this book provides a context for the images of Leslie's original art by tracing her background, thematic elements and landmarks in her work and life.
This artistic, entrepreneurial couple now live and work in Missoula.
