Tour of the Arts
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.
Tour maps are 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. For further information contact: Jenny Rohrer at (406) 754-0034 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
