The Northcutt Steele Gallery at MSU Billings is pleased to present "Rapid Expansion," an exhibition of mixed-media works by Cody-based artist, Rebecca Weed. An opening reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, January 16 from 4:30pm to 7pm. A conversation with the artist begins at 5:30pm. The reception is catered, free, and open to the public. "Rapid Expansion" offers a series of narrative, often autobiographical, works exploring the physical and symbolic horizon and the means by which they shape the experiences, stories, and forms of the Western landscape. “Growing up in Wyoming,” Weed notes, “I was always aware of the horizon. This long view affected my visual aesthetic in many ways.” Rebecca Weed received her BA in fine arts with a focus in painting from Montana State University Billings in 2006 and her MFA from University of Montana in 2011. She has exhibited throughout the US and internationally.
