Synopsis: A feast for Monte Dolack fans, this celebration of his artwork at mid-career gathers 178 color reproductions of posters, paintings, and working sketches that were created from the 1970s to 2000.
Included are logos and advertising pieces for performers, "hippie capitalist" and other businesses, posters for nonprofit organizations, the wryly humorous "invaders"; poster series and works on wildlife, on magic, and more.
Much of Dolack's art reflects the American West (in reality as well as in legend) and his home state of Montana. His distinctive style and universal messages long have attracted collectors (and imitators) around the United States and abroad.
Filmmaker/editor Annick Smith contributes a personal essay on Dolack’s life and career from her dual perspectives as friend and fan. Candid photographs of Dolack over the years illustrate this section. Margaret C. Kingsland, former director of Montana Committee for the Humanities, analyzes Dolack's images, subjects, and approach.
Offering appreciations of Monte Dolack’s work are fellow artists, collectors, and friends Anthony Acerrano, Rudy Autio, Dana Boussard, Doug Chadwick, Ivan Doig, Kay Ellerhoff, Dan Kemmis, Milo Miles, Dorothy Hinshaw Patent, and Pat Williams.
