May is for Membership!
Now is the time to join the Lewistown Art Center. This membership-based organization served over 3,500 people last year with education programs, cultural events, and regional art and craft! That’s like half of Lewistown!
Our annual membership drive is necessary part of the Art Center’s annual funding and allows us to offer low-cost programming like $5 after-school classes. For just $8.50 a month (a $100 membership for the price of a movie ticket a month!), you can support our mission of providing and promoting art, arts education, and cultural events in Central Montana. Our membership drive runs until Saturday, June 15th, when we host HANDS ON MONTANA, a free, community-wide party to celebrate you!
As an added incentive, if you become a member OR increase your membership amount OR refer a friend to membership, you will be entered to win one of 2 original artworks from David Wharton. David is a Lewistown-based artist of international renown, known for his lithographic prints, artist books, and incredibly detailed paintings. Stop in to see these incredible pieces!
IN THE WILKINS GALLERY FOR THE MONTH OF MAY
Twenty-two watercolor artists from across the state were at the Lewistown Art Center this weekend for a workshop and gallery show as part of the annual Montana Watercolor Society Exhibition. Once again, all of the entries are miniatures, under 6" x 6." -- Bozeman-based artist, Jim Howard, led a two-day workshop that went “back to basics” and our classroom was filled with new techniques and ideas all weekend.
Come see the fruits of this year’s labor in the Margie Wilkins Gallery. Congratulations to Jessica Glenn, Judy Michael, and Mary Frieze for their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons respectively, and to the Honorable Mention winners as well!
This miniature exhibition will be on display until the end of May, but don’t wait to see it! These affordable micro-masterpieces are selling fast, and are the perfect Mother’s Day gift!
