The tour includes seven studios and the Lincoln Art Haus Co-op will feature seven artists in one place. Driving between Condon and Seeley Lake, you’ll pass by five lakes and it looks like the fall tamarack colors will be out all along the route. There are four new studies to this year’s tour and the Brand Bar Museum in Ovando will host four artists.

Two movie nights – each free featured the Sundance hit feature film Walking Out made by Montana filmmakers Alex and Andrew Smith.

Tour maps are also available in Seeley Lake at the Grizzly Claw Trading Company, at the Seeley Lake Visitor's Center, in Condon at Grace's Gallery, and at participating galleries and museums. 

The Tour of the Arts is an opportunity to visit the artists in their studios, meet them immersed in their passion and see them at work.  Visitors will be welcomed into their artist lifestyle, learn firsthand about their art and hear their stories of creation.  The tour is continuing our collaboration with three local historical museums featuring 13 of the artists: Condon's Upper Swan Valley Historical Museum, Seeley Lake's Historical Museum and Ovando's Brand Bar Museum  Each museum is housed in a fascinating historical building, and visitors will enjoy absorbing the local lore and old stories side-by-side with experiencing these artists' techniques and perspectives.
