CoCA is proud to partner with the University of Montana's School of Art in bringing the first exhibition of Montana MFA candidates to Seattle, including 14 artists at various stages in their work exploring a wide range of media, including ceramics (internationally recognized program), drawing, painting, photography, mixed media installation, sculpture, printmaking, and video. The exhibit showcases the diversity of a vibrant program with an attention to objects, materials, processes, and interdisciplinary inquiry. Featured artists have come to Missoula to study from all over the country (as well as Japan, Canada, etc.) and include Lucy Capehart, Pamela Caughey, Michael Flynn, Sarahjess Hurt, Will Hutchinson, Lisa Jarrett, Steph Johnsen, Anna Lemnitzer, Suzanne Lussier, Yaro Neils, Randi O'Brien, Cathryn Sugg, Nathan Tonning, and Rebecca Weed.

CoCA's "Across the Divide" series was started in 2009 in an effort to bring more contemporary art from the interior west and the "dry side" of the mountains to Seattle. As part of the project, CoCA staff flew to Missoula to engage the artists' community before joining the road trip to deliver the artwork.
