Missoula has a dynamic art scene, with two first-class museums and a lively gallery community. Stroll the museums, and admire works by famous artists or discover a new contemporary one. Additionally, the First Friday Art Walks display the talents of local craftspeople and artists. Obviously the stunning Montana landscape also inspires the exquisite paintings and crafts. Therefore the diverse galleries are the perfect place to choose a meaningful souvenir. Just minutes away from Missoula’s museums and galleries, find a tranquil retreat at the Blue Mountain Bed and Breakfast. Guests enjoy our mountainside location with sweeping views of the Bitterroot River and surrounding mountains. Relax in your private, luxury suite with picturesque scenery from every window. Book a spring getaway and experience the beauty of the Missoula landscape.
February’s First Friday in Missoula looks to be a good one. We still have a couple of rooms available in our Bed and Breakfast Missoula on Friday, February 4, 2011. Why not be spontaneous, and come to Missoula for a weekend of art and culture?
First Friday at the Montana Museum of Art and Culture at the University of Montana takes place between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on February 4. Listen to live music by Dan Dubuque while gazing upon “Renoir, Magritte, Gauguin and other European Masterpieces from a Private Collection”. Also open for viewing is “Three Centuries of European Prints” from the MMAC permanent collection. Surprise giveaways, tasty treats, and discounts at the MMAC store make First Friday at MMAC extra fun.
See the premier of Flathead Moon, “a new limited edition archival digital print”, downtown at the Monte Dolack Gallery between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.. Refreshments will be available for all. Oil paintings by Marvie Redmond will be on display at Montana Art and Framing, and The Brink Gallery is exhibiting Strange Angels, by Michael deMent. He writes of his creations that they “remain ethereal and otherworldly yet with a dose of the familiar and tactile”.
In addition to the many galleries in downtown Missoula, First Friday events extend to such venues as Top Hat Lounge’s DIY Bazaar, Butterfly Herbs, and the Crystal Theatre. For a complete list of Missoula First Friday events, please see the Missoula First Friday website.
Continue to explore the arts throughout your weekend at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast, or enjoy a different kind of activity, like downhill or cross-country skiing.
