What’s the good of writing for a local blog if you can’t use it to crow about your close friends’ accomplishments?  That’s why I’m tickled pink to post a link to my friend Molly Murphy’s interview with Skylar Browning in the Indy this week about her show at the Missoula Art Museum, Reservations Required. Since my art criticism skills are rather rusty, I’ll just quote from Browning’s article:

Local artist Molly Murphy, a descendant of the Oglala, Lakota tribe, chose beadwork as her primary medium, making her an anomaly in the contemporary art scene. “I’m not a full-blood, I’m not a traditionalist, I’m not obsessed with authentic materials or reproducing something,” she says. “In the end, I had to find a more authentic way to tell my story.”

The exhibition of her gorgeous beadwork with a contemporary message runs through May 24th on the third floor of the MAM.
