Add to Calendar 1/7/2023 2/25/2023 America/Denver Dark Sky Visions: Photography Exhibition January 7 through February 25, 2023, view "Dark Sky Visions" exhibition in the main gallery at the Carbon County Arts Guild & Depot Gallery. "Dark Sky Visions" features seven notable artists with amazing photographic work of the night skies. Artists include John Ashley (Rio Rico, AZ), Jeremy Battles (Red Lodge, MT), Mervin D. Coleman (Red Lodge, MT), Mark S. Moak (Billings, MT), Heidi Pinkerton (Hibbing, MN), Ben Sherman (Billings, MT), and Dave Shumway (Sheridan, WY). Each artist hopes their night time inspired imagery will bring awareness and encourage people to understand the importance of protecting our skies from light pollution. In addition, the artists hope to educate the public about the work being done locally by the Red Lodge Dark Skies committee to make Red Lodge a designated International Dark Sky Community.

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, January 7, 2023 / 4-6 p.m. / 5 p.m. is a Gallery Talk by "Dark Sky" artists. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be courtesy of the Red Lodge Dark Skies committee and the Carbon County Arts Guild.

This exhibition is sponsored by the Carbon County Arts Guild & Depot Gallery which is supported in part by grants from the Montana Arts Council, the Coal Tax Trust Fund for Cultural and Aesthetic Projects, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Carbon County Arts Guild & Depot Gallery provides access to art, supports artistic expression, and encourages creative experiences for the enrichment of our communities.

Add to Calendar 3/11/2023 3/12/2023 America/Denver National Finals Ski-Joring Races It's WINTER FUN, WESTERN STYLE! The Red Lodge Ski-Joring Association has been hosting the National Finals Ski-Joring Races since 1980. Ski-Joring originated in Scandinavian countries as a form of winter transportation.
The west has transformed this into an action packed competition wherein teams of horse, rider and skier negotiate a 700+ foot course, the horse and rider taking a track to the inside of the course while the skier in tow, negotiates 20-some slalom gates and four jumps in hopes of completing two fast, clean runs. That isn’t so easy at speeds sometimes topping 25 mph.
