MISSOULA, Montana: Missoula Art Museum invites the public to experience ‘Doug Turman: Curious’, the first solo show of Montana artist Doug Turman at MAM.
This survey of various works on paper includes Turman’s Love Notes series, whimsical etchings, and an array of paintings on paper. A master of the small, almost incidental, work on paper, Turman works with obsessive precision and a categorical knowledge of art history. Together, these works present a picture of a sustained artistic vision that has been steadfast for nearly forty years. Turman says, “Each painting is its own little world. At one point I decided I wanted to be able to paint whatever I could think of.”
