Month of August

Mary Blain, Nellie Israel and Gerry Wempner

Carbon County Arts Guild Main Depot Gallery will feature Wonderful Watercolors and Pastel paintings by Mary Blain and Nellie Israel and bronzes by Gerald Wempner.

Mary Blain, watercolorist was always interested in painting and drawing, so at age 35 she returned to school for formal art training and participated in many workshops with well known professional artists. For many years she owned and operated her own art studio/gallery in Cooke City, MT.

Nellie Israel works in watercolor, oils, acrylics, pen, ink and pastels. She had taught art for many years and retired to a devoted and prolific art career.

Gerald Wempner, a professional emeritus, has found time to follow his interest in art, specifically the sculpture of horses and wildlife. He has been a member at the Arts Guild for the past fifteen years and has been a loyal supporter of the arts. His bronzes are found in many collections through-out the country.

The Beartooth Highway with speaker Jon Axline at the Museum.

Traversing the spectacular Beartooth Highway in Montana and Wyoming is an unforgettable experience. The unspoiled mountain scenery along the highway inspired famed news correspondent Charles Kuralt to label it ¡°America¡¯s most beautiful drive,¡± yet the story behind this engineering marvel is largely unknown. It is an epic account of man versus nature to construct a road through unforgiving wilderness. Built during the height of the Great Depression and rising 10,947 feet above sea level, the Beartooth Highway sparked an economic boom in Red Lodge, Cooke City and Yellowstone National Park. Understandably, it continues to leave a profound impression on people privileged to drive it. Historian Jon Axline tells the exciting and colorful narrative behind the origins and construction of the Beartooth Highway. Join us at the Museum on Saturday August 27 at 7pm for a presentation & book signing by Jon Axline.


COST: There is a $2 charge for nonmembers.
