Occasional student art classes and exhibitions offered. I love seeing beginner and experienced artists together under one roof. Often amazing local artists offer a fresh new perspective of Glacier National Park and other Montana beauty.

We always. Is it when there is a new exhibit - great pieces from 30 local artists on the local area including Glacier Matilnal Park as well as great photography by a local photographer. You can't go wrong by visiting.
