2022 Kids Summer Art Camps

Yay! Kid’s Summer Studio Camps are On! This summer we have three week-long studio camps available for kids ages 8 - 12. Find out more about the camps, each of which will be different. Maureen gives lots of personal attention to your kids because we only have five students per studio camp. She is flexible, a great listener, and focuses on helping kids express their intrinsic creativity and find their own voices rather than "technique." She is also responsive to students who wish to gain skills such as drawing from observation; color and composition skills, and mark-making.

STORIES: August 21 – Sept 30, 2021

An Exhibit of Four Storytelling Artists' New Works

"When you’re speaking in the truest, most intimate voice about your life, you are speaking with the universal voice." ~ Cheryl Strayed

Please join us on August 21st from 10 to 4, to meet the four Helena artists featured in STORIES. Each of thes artists is a storyteller and an optimist. Each is a magical being who uses narrative in her art, to tell about the human condition through humor, strength, story and beauty. Each speaks through art-making, in a true voice and therefore a universal voice. We invite you to spend time viewing these stories during the exhibit, and hope that you will bring their meaningful ideas into your own lives and homes.

Featured Artist Window Exhibitions and Online Gallery Store

It's Something New

During the first year of the pandemic, we reduced the size of our gallery exhibit floor to about two thirds the size it was during the first 7 years as a fine art gallery. We added a new classroom in the back portion of the gallery (anytime you stop by, feel free to peek into the classroom) and we transitioned the front windows of the gallery into two smaller exhibitions for one or two artists at a time. These window exhibitions rotate about every 3 to 4 weeks, face the street and are available for viewing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! This is something we decided to do for our community, to extend the gallery outside of our physical walls, and make artwork in a wide range of prices available for all to see, appreciate and buy.  We are also happy to take you downstairs into what we can "Grandma's Basement" where you can browse through our art storage area to discover "hidden" art treasures not exhibited up on the gallery floor. Just ask us!
