Brief DescriptionArtistic Gateway to Glacier National Park
CategoryArt Museum
DescriptionThe Hockaday Museum of Art is home to Montana's unique art legacy, in particular the art and culture of Glacier National Park. The Crown of the Continent Gallery features master works, artifacts and collectibles from the nascent years of Glacier Park, interwoven with the Blackfeet Indian Nation, the Great Northern Railroad, and the artists who first painted, photgraphed, mapped and wrote about the region that was destined to become a National Park.
Traveling exhibitons showcase the work of nationally acclaimed regional artists, many of whom make their home in our Flathead Valley. Children experience the art of current exhibitions through hands-on activities in the Hockaday's Discovery Gallery. Trained Museum Docents lead gallery tours twice weekly for the public and as requested by numerous schools in the surrounding region. Members and visitors choose from a host of art programs throughout the year: artist studio tours; art lecture series'; art classes and workshops for adults, families, children and youth; opening receptions and artist talks; Members' show; art auctions and community art events. Shop for unique gifts created by local artists in the Museum’s Off the Wall Gift Gallery: pottery, jewelry, cards, artwork, books, and prints.

Arts in the Park, the largest art and music festival in Northwest Montana, is held in Kalispell's Depot Park each year on the fourth weekend in July. This juried art show is a benefit for the Museum and a favorite for browsing and buying jewelry, photography, paintings, and pottery from more than 100 artists and artisans. Free entertainment and great food and beverage vendors add to the weekend fun!

The Museum’s Glacier National Park Exhibition Gallery will always feature the rich art history of the Park, though the artists change from time to time. The exhibition includes the work of Marshall Noice, Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey, Mark Ogle, Joe Abbrescia, T.J. Hileman, John Clarke, O.C. Seltzer, John Fery, Ace Powell, Robert M. Stephens, Leonard Lopp, and other early and contemporary artists of the Park.

The Museum’s growing permanent collection focuses on the art and artists of Montana: works by Bud Helbig, Russell Chatham, Jeanne Hamilton, Hugh Hockaday, Frank Hagel, Leonard Lopp, Ace Powell, Gary Schildt, Tom Saubert and others.
