I wait all winter long for the leaves that dance on the trees outside my bedroom window, the leaves that soon will be falling. But change is good. Actually, I love change. It is what has allowed me to call Livingston, Montana home for the past 24 years come September 29th. When I rolled into town in a two-door Ford Escort Pony packed to the brim with record albums in ’91, I had no idea what I would do in a state full of cattle. So, I got my masters, had four children, volunteered, found a family of friends and fell slowly in love with it, our strange, beautiful and awesome, ever-evolving town.
Wheatgrass Saloon is pretty awesome as well, and it, too, is evolving. We have been in the new space for two summers now and are still sorting out how best to use the space for merchandise, art, seating etc. In an effort to create some new space for new merchandise, we will have a big, big, big Labor Day week sale August 31 – September 5. Hopefully something you’ve been eyeing will suddenly be just the right price!
The featured artist for the August 28th Friday Art Walk is Betsey Hurd. Please come after 5pm to meet Betsey and enjoy her show, Querencia.
“Querencia,” is a show that explores the concept of Home and Place, of the hunger for finding a corner of the world to call home. Animals have always grounded and connected Betsey to wherever she is, and so, accompany her on these journeys. Betsey’s paintings have always been about animals and landscape and dreams.
