When he’s not hard at work on high-end residential or large commercial buildings, CTA architectural designer Jimmy Talarico transforms devalued materials such as thrift store candles and ash into fine art — and he’s gotten really good at it. One of his recent pieces has earned him a trip abroad, which he describes in a recent blog entry on memoriestomasterpiece.com:

Oh my gosh! On to Shanghai!

I just found out last Monday morning my piece Hard Soil Broken was juried into a show in Shanghai that will feature up to 10 select artists from Montana as well as top artists from China! As if this honor wasn’t enough, a 13-day trip to China is included (minus airfare) so the handful of us can attend various events around Shanghai including a workshop with Shanghai’s top artists, curators, and scholars to discuss strengthening ties between the Shanghai and Montana art communities amongst other things.

READ MORE about the incredibly cool stops and activities Talarico will experience on his trip (Nov. 4-17), and check out his mixed-media artwork and photography portfolio.

    Congratulations Talarico for being selected as one of the selected artists from Montana to exhibit in Shanghai! I have been looking at your portfolio, and as a gallerist for Radius Gallery, a contemporary Fine Art gallery in Missoula, MT, I would love to have an opportunity to talk with you a little bit more specifically about your process, your aesthetic, and story basically. If you have any interest in connecting, please let me know. We work in Bozeman as well, and can arrange to meet if you’d like. I Look forward to hearing from you, and congrats again!
