There was a special exhibit by tribal artists and it was very interesting and unusual in their media. Barbara Peterson was the docent and we really enjoyed her descriptions of the art.

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.
