The Heritage Center is inviting the public to view a special memorial display of the work of Havre artist Jim Pasma.
The display consists of work owned by the Clack Museum and Howard Taylor, a neighbor and friend of the late Pasma. Works of other artists are also in the display, in the small exhibit room on the first floor of the Heritage Center.
Pasma was a nationally recognized bronze sculptor who specialized in Western animals and people. The display includes two statues that have not been displayed for public viewing before. They are "Guanara," a two-piece bronze, and "Sundown," a sculpture of a Native American.
Some of Pasma's bronzes have been on display in the White House and the offices of other national leaders. Health problems related to his work led to Pasma's early death.
Some of the Pasma works are for sale. A bronze statue of Chief Joseph by Bob Scriver is also available for sale, as are two numbered prints "Centennial" by Gary Carter, signed by many Montana governors, and "Trappers Crossing the San Juan" by Southwestern artist Paul Abrams. Proceeds from the sale of Clack Museum pieces will help pay the museum's expenses.
A deposit will hold a bronze or numbered print until the purchaser can pick it up. A certificate of authenticity will be provided for each purchase.
