MSU BILLINGS NEWS— Maci Lucht, a senior art student at MSU Billings, will host her solo capstone exhibit Reaping What You Sow beginning Nov. 30 through Dec. 7 in the student gallery, located on the first floor of the Liberal Arts building.

 

Reaping What You Sow- Within ranching, there is value in the simplicity of life. The idea of reaping what you sow is very important in this line of work. Ranching is very hands on. For a rancher, the main tool that they use is their hands. Working, persevering, studying, and sacrifice are all part of a rancher’s everyday life.

 

“I want to render the essence of tactility and how the rancher uses their callused hands each day to complete different tasks,” shared Lucht. “The tangible aspects are what I find most intriguing and the deep connection that the rancher has to working with their hands.”

 

Lucht is a contemporary artist working with various drawing and painting media but mostly focuses on watercolor. Her ranching background gives her an insight and close personal relationship with the idea of reaping what you sow. She is currently a senior pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education in Art at MSUB.

 

An artist reception will take place from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6. The show and reception are free and open to the public.
