About Alpine Artisans

Mission

Our mission is to promote and preserve the arts in the Seeley, Swan, and Blackfoot valleys of Western Montana. We accomplish this through supporting artists, arts education, outreach and information gathering and sharing.

Vision

We, as Alpine Artisans, envision the quality of life of the Seeley, Swan, and Blackfoot Valley communities being significantly enriched and enhanced through the efforts and activities of our membership and staff.

Our Members

Enriching the community through the arts is an ongoing activity of Alpine Artisans. Events open to the community for its enjoyment include exhibits, art fairs, workshops, lectures, concerts and performances. The contributions of our organization to the Seeley-Swan and Blackfoot valleys are possible due to the volunteer efforts of our nearly 150 members.

Administration

Carol Evans, Kris Gullikson (outgoing President) and Jenny Rohrer at the Annual Meeting on Jan. 24, 2016 in Condon.

A nine-member Board of Directors provides policy and financial oversight for Alpine Artisans.

The board is elected by the membership at an annual meeting held in January at the beginning of the fiscal year. Various committees are appointed as needed throughout the year.  The daily, ongoing administration of Alpine Artisans is provided by our Program Coordinator, Jenny Rohrer and our 2 Valleys Stage Program Director, Carol Evans.

Funding comes from a variety of sources such as commissions on art sales, ticket and raffle sales during Alpine Artisans' events, grants, donations, business supporters, and membership dues. The income generated is used to accomplish our mission to promote and preserve the arts in western Montana.
