Artist: Jim Bridger

Hand-turned wood bowls, urns, and art pieces.

I am Jim Bridger born and raised Montanan. After 50 years in Kalispell, MT a move to Helena seemed perfect to be near my grandsons and daughter Paula. My professional career of delivering for UPS came to an end and the profession of wood turning has filled my retirement. Wood turning has occupied my time, garage and shop for the past 20 years. When I am not turning, I find myself wandering a golf course or spoiling my family

 I trained under world class turners, a few are Alan Lacer, Trent Bosch, Mike Mahoney, and Jimmy Clewes. I also am grateful for my time within the Glacier Woodturners Club in Kalispell there were many mentors there.  My creations have included: bowls, urns, snowmen, penguins, wine stoppers, segmented wood projects and ornamental Christmas bulbs. No two pieces created are the same; each have a unique color and pattern because of the diversity in wood that I choose to turn.  

My signature pieces are the snowmen. Most snowman have five or more different types of wood. No matter whether using one type of wood or several each project completed brings joy to my heart.  I have completed over 300 snowmen and countless other pieces.  

I am excited for my first art show here in Helena. Although I am not new to art shows this will be different as my wife, Wilene, is now gone. I look forward to sharing this show with my daughter, brother-in-law and friend of many years.  

The beauty of wood is always a surprise to a woodturner.   To finish a piece of art perfectly is the challenge.  My belief is that a finished piece is, “either good or not good- it’s never good enough.”

Artist: Jay Crider

Jay Crider (°1981, Helena) is an artist whose main focus is with painting. His interests in subject matter are wide ranging and eclectic. Crider formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious process of composition that is behind the seemingly random works. The thought processes, which are supposedly private, highly subjective and unfiltered in their references to dream worlds, are frequently revealed as assemblages. His paintings are saturated with a dark humor that can be obvious or obscure. They question the coerciveness that is derived from the more profound meaning and the superficial aesthetic appearance of an image. By experimenting with aleatoric processes, he makes works that can be seen as self-portraits. Sometimes they appear idiosyncratic and quirky, at other times, they ask you to provide the punch-line. His works feature coincidental, accidental and unexpected connections which lead to surprising analogies.
