Flathead Wild Art Exhibit comes to Kimberley

The Flathead Wild Art Exhibit, after travelling across Alberta, B.C. and Montana, is coming home to Kimberley for January.

Centre 64 will host the final stop of the tour before the pieces are auctioned off in support of the Flathead Wild campaign.

Wildsight-Flathead-WildThe exhibit will be on display in the Gallery @ Centre 64 in Kimberley from January 6 to January 30. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 1 to 5 p.m.

Join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, January 9 from 3-5 p.m. Some of the artists will be in attendance. Refreshments and snacks will be served. Please RSVP here.

The exhibit was born in the summer of 2012, when 10 scientists and six artists descended on the Flathead to document its rare species and explore its natural beauty.

The trip resulted in 13 paintings from the Flathead, a region that has been described as one of the most ecologically important places on the planet. The exhibit includes works from B.C.- based artists Laura Nelson, Tara Higgins, Joseph Cross, Denise Lemaster, and Simon Haiduk. It also features works from renowned Jackson Hole-based artist Dwayne Harty.
