An Exceptional Fine Art Gallery in Whitefish, Montana

Western Art Week Postponed

As you may know, The CM Russell Museum has postponed The Russell events in Great Falls next week.  While we are greatly saddened by this news, we understand and support the Museum in this decision.  The Out West Art Show, were we have participated for the last few years, is also postponing their event, so we have uploaded our “room” to an online gallery.

Even though you can’t visit us in Great Falls – you can still view and purchase our artists’ fantastic works from the safety of your own home.  To help support our artists, we will be contributing free shipping for any pieces purchased online until the end of the month.

Please stay safe, don’t panic, do the socially responsible thing – and of course, surround yourself with beautiful artwork!  Click here to shop and support our artists.
