Artist LeeAnn Ramey Exhibits at the Bozeman Public Library

Wednesday Apr. 19th, 2017

Contemporary expressions of color and texture highlight Bozeman artist LeeAnn Ramey’s paintings.  Ramey will exhibit her work in the Atrium Gallery at the Bozeman Public Library May 1 through June 30, 2017. The Bozeman Public Library Foundation, sponsors of the exhibit, will host an artist’s reception on Friday, May 5, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., free and open to the public.

“My paintings are contemporary expressions of color and texture. I am curious by nature and love the prospect of discovering something new — whether it’s experimenting with different mediums, paint, texture, subjects or the effect of a varnish or ink, I want to have fun and explore,” states Ramey.  A native Nashvillian, Ramey worked as a graphic designer in the country music industry for over 25 years while also painting part-time. After relocating to Bozeman in 2014, she made the decision to pursue her life-long passion and focus her career on painting.

She is a self-taught contemporary acrylic painter.  Her work has been accepted in several juried shows in the South and she won first place in the 12th Annual Art’s Revive Juried Art Show in Selma, Alabama and Instructors’ Choice Award at the Alabama Art Colony Group Show in Alexander City.  She has also exhibited in Helena, Three Forks and Bozeman.  LeeAnn recently gave a nod to her new environment by saying “I am excited to call Montana my home and look forward to finding out how life in the West will influence my work!

”The exhibition will be on display during Library hours.  A percentage of sales will go to the Bozeman Public Library Foundation to ensure continuation of cultural programs at the Library for public benefit.  For more information about the exhibit or opening reception, please call Sarah DeOpsomer at 582-2425 or email
