Artist Kara Tripp at Library

Bozeman Public Library

Upcoming Dates & Times

Friday, November 3, 2017 at 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Bozeman artist Kara Tripp will exhibit recent oil paintings in the Atrium Gallery at the Bozeman Public Library November 1 through December 31, 2017. The Bozeman Public Library Foundation, sponsors of the exhibit, will host an artist’s reception on Friday, November 3, 2017, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., free and open to the public.

Tripp is a palette-knife oil painter and Montana native.  Her work is recognizable by the blend of traditional subjects and bold technique.  Kara’s favorite subjects include pheasants and bison.  Her sole use of a palette knife adds a fresh, contemporary twist to her paintings, often resembling mosaic or collage.  Her work was chosen as the 2014 Sweet Pea Poster and she won Best in Show at the Sweet Pea art show in 2013, ‘14, and ‘15. 

Her work is represented in galleries in Montana, Arizona, and Vermont and can be seen online at

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.
