Maggy Rozycki Hiltner is a full-time studio artist and activist living in Red Lodge, Montana. She comes from a family of makers: her mother and grandmothers needlepointed pillows, made quilts and stitched or knitted their clothes and toys; her father built odd things and cooked outrageous meals and painted murals in their home.

Hiltner searches antique shops, thrift stores and yard sales for embroidered linens, collecting the brightly colored flowers, foliage, and animals that appear in her work. What she cannot find she hand-stitches and mixes in with the collected embroidery. She uses the familiarity of the stitch along with seemingly lighthearted and cheerful designs to convey more serious subject matter. She often uses humor and Dick and Jane-style characters to tell her stories, and very rarely is everything quite what it seems.

Free and open to the public.
