New Gallery upstairs across from Pollard!

New Gallery opening during Red Lodge Christmas Stroll. I research and paint large oil paintings of old homesteads in the West. My recent relocation to Red Lodge has opened up a new and exciting history for me, as well as a great new studio! I¡¯m originally from NE Montana along the Missouri River. My life has taken me to many places in the United State and abroad, most of it teaching at California State University Fresno ¡­ with many years of longing to return to Montana. I tend to spend many hours searching old files and maps at various Heritage Centers. I will be spending quite a bit of time at the Red Lodge Museum as well. I also plan to be painting the windows at the local Senior Center, giving me another opportunity to learn more about my new ¡°hometown¡±.

My resulting artwork is usually begun as a 6¡±x6¡± plein air oil study, evolving into a 48¡±x48¡± oil painting on Birch (Alder framing). In the process, I sometimes create intermediate sizes from 8¡±x10¡± to 30¡±x30¡±, so the choices are many! By the end of 2017 I will have completed my entire series of 40 large paintings for a Homestead book publication of my artwork ¡­ yes, I still have lots of work to do!!!

I would like to invite you to visit my Art Studio upstairs at 1 N. Broadway (soft green bank building across from Pollard Hotel), with the Grand Opening during the annual Christmas Stroll December 2nd and 3rd. In honor of this event, I am offering a 30% discount on any artwork you chose until the end of December 2016.

During the Christmas Stroll Grand Opening, coffee and cookies will be served. Prices of artwork range from $120 ($84) for 6¡±x6¡± blocks up to $8,000 ($5400) for 48¡±x48¡± oil paintings on birch panels, so there will be something for everybody!


TIME: 5:00-8:00

LOCATION: 1 N. Broadway (upstairs) enter on 11th

Blue Light Ceremony

Fallen but not Forgotten¡­¡­

An invitation to a short service to remember all Fallen MT Law Enforcement -Reading of Fallen Officers Names- Lighting of tree with blue lights and hanging balls with fallen Officers names.

Tonight MT COPS, the state chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors welcomes each of you to this Blue Light Ceremony. Project Blue Light began in 1989 by Dolly Craig of Philadelphia, PA who put a blue light in her window to remember her son in law, Danny Gleason, a Philadelphia police officer who was killed in the line of duty in 1986. Dolly Craig shared her idea with COPS who in turn shared the idea with others.

Please consider shining a blue light during the holiday season to honor and remember law enforcement officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice, and to show support and thanks for those officers who continue to serve.


TIME: 5:00
