‘Between Artists’: Flathead Valley Painter Collaborates with Writer in Norway for Hockaday Museum Exhibit
Lauren Korn chats with painter Tabby Ivy, one half of the collaborative team behind “Between Artists: Life in Paintings and Prose,” an exhibit now on view at the Hockaday Museum of Art in Kalispell, Montana. Tabby tells how she and writer Damon Falke (based in Norway) approached multimedia collaboration.
Tabby will give an artist talk at Hockaday on August 4, 2022 at 5:30 p.m. “Between Artists” will be on view until August 20.
From the Hockaday website: Tabby Ivy is a tonalist painter working in the Flathead Valley. Damon Falke lives in northern Norway and writes prose and poetry that consider the relationship between memory and the present, especially as expressed through objects and landscapes. Tabby and Damon first connected on social media shortly before the pandemic and quickly discovered “a common voice that spoke to us through our work”. In this collaborative exhibition, Ivy and Falke uniquely express stories and emotions through the visual arts and the written word transcending distance, culture and time.
