Monte Dolack

Graphic artist Monte Dolack has made a career out of making whimsical landscapes and magical realism portraits, like surreal images of fish flying through the sky or ducks hanging out in a bathtub. Dolack has his sterling reputation because people love his vision of Montana—even when he’s digging deep into more serious issues. Consider his recent exhibition Musings on the Contemporary Montana Landscape, in which he artfully mines (pun intended) the tension between the state’s extractive industries and the natural landscape. His award-winning work is part of the collection of the Library of Congress and, more importantly, it adorns local beer bottles from Bayern brewery. Now that’s prestige. Monte Dolack Gallery: 139 W. Front St, 549-3248, dolack.com
