The first Friday of the month is always festive in downtown Missoula. Art galleries and museums open to the public with new exhibits; they stay open late, and often host artist receptions and special events. On Friday, February 3, 2012, there is a good chance there’ll be some spontaneous snow sculpting as well–all those piles of snow on the sidewalks are just too tempting. But no matter what the weather, folks wander up and down the streets of downtown, popping in to see exhibits that catch their eye.
Spend the first weekend of the February at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast, and enjoy the following exhibits at First Friday:
- International Cup 2012. Just what can be done to a cup? See for yourself at the Clay Studio of Missoula.
- “See what the fire hath wrought: Wood-fired ceramics from The Clay Studio Anagama Kiln.” For the past four years, a group of artists has been exploring the art and science of wood-fired ceramics. See some of the results at The Artists’ Shop.
- Photographic silkscreens by Pennsylvanian artist Benjamin Lee Sperry will be on display at The Brink; there will also be a reception for the artist from 5 to 8 p.m.
In addition to the above mentioned exhibits, there will be refreshments at the Monte Dolack Gallery, where a new limited edition archival print will be premiered. The Montana Museum of Art and Culture is hosting a reception for Fra Dana: American Impressionist in the Rockies and Frances Carroll Brown: Bitterroot Portraits. For a complete list of events, please see First Friday Missoula.
Take a break from the routine. Spend a weekend indulging in art and culture , and being pampered at our Bed and Breakfast Missoula.
