We’re very proud to host internationally renowned artist and illustrator Joey DeRuy — and a whole new body of work — at the NewWest.Net office in September.
DeRuy’s work is colorful and abstract, often inspired by his time in Africa, Hong Kong and Scandanavia. But for this show, opening Sept. 5 at the NewWest.Net office at 415 N. Higgins, DeRuy is focusing soley on Montana, specifically Missoula, where he had his first show at the age of 11 and where he found his early inspiration.
He says he hopes to paint Missoula with the same spark that helped him to the success he’s achieved and that “the reason for the show for me was to connect in a way.”
“From my first fender bender in a car, job, date, the buildings, streets and alleys,” he says, Missoula and Montana have raised him. They “more then raised me. They helped to form me…”
Welcome DeRuy and his new work at 415 N. Higgins, in the alley behind the Old Post Sept. 5 from 5-9 p.m.
What: New paintings from Joey DeRuy
When: Sept. 5, 5-9 p.m.
