Phoebe Knapp: Rough Cuts (Hardcover)
Phoebe Knapp is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and a third-generation rancher near Fort Smith, Montana. She has exhibited widely in the western states and her work is collected throughout the United States. She divides her time between Fort Smith and her studio in Billings, located in the city’s historic district.
Knapp works primarily with wood but incorporates metal details and accents. She searches for and scavenges huge slabs of wood, tree trunks, and giant burl knobs from old-growth trees. The fact that the materials were once living things makes each piece of raw material unique. Knapp’s years of experience working with wood informs her knowledge of the medium.
Knapp's work was recently added to the MAM Permanent Collection. Her exhibition, Rough Cuts, was displayed in MAM's Art Park in 2018.
