Green Door Gallery, Green Eats & Green Dot Sales

Green Door Gallery

The 1956 song by Jim Lowe, Green Door, was the inspiration for the newly designed Green Door Gallery at Wheatgrass Saloon. Thanks to Gigi of Synergigi Designs the gallery has a cohesive look that balances elegance and fun and provides plenty of wall space for artwork throughout the summer as well as year round.  The first show, Landmarks & Landscapes of Livingston features art from four different artists: John Zumpano’s photographs of Crow Fair; Tandy Miles Riddles’ paintings of the Livingston Depot and of grain elevators; Tony Demin’s photographs of downtown Livingston and its surrounding valleys; Beth Gregory’s fine silver and enameled copper pieces of the Yellowstone, the Abasaroka mountains and the Teslow building. Proceeds of Beth’s Teslow building pieces will go to the Teslow Preservation Fund. The show will remain up until August 19th.

We will have three more art walks this summer each on the fourth Friday of the month from 5-8pm.

July 28th – August 19th with Natalia Boise’s Badass Beauties: The Culture of Rebellious Femininity.

August 25th- September 16th with Ian Lange’s photographs, Storrs Bishop’s linocuts and Marc Beaudin’s poetry in Murmurations: A Flight of Birds in Imagery & Poetry.

September 22nd – October 21st with a juried show, Dangerous: A Mural Arts Competition. Please check out the competition details and consider entering some pieces. The deadline for entries is September 8, 2017.

Green Eats:

 A couple of extra bowls for the summer are the Taco Bowl and the Timeless Seeds Hummus Bowl. Both are vegan, gluten-free, plant-based deliciousness. A new kombucha flavor to try is the Mango Habanero. Plenty of bottled, cold-press juices available in the grab ‘n’ go cooler to stick in your cooler for your summer adventures.

Green Dot Sales:

We will continue to add to the “Green Dot” sales table to offer extra affordable gift buying options for you along with the plentiful array of other options in the boutique — earrings, candles, t-shirts, koozies, cards, journals, posters, incense, chocolates, etc.

Springing into Summer at Wheatgrass Saloon

This month, the month of April, is National Poetry Month. If you go to the Wheatgrass Saloon Facebook page, you can submit your own poem(s) throughout the month. First, second and third prizes will be awarded in May. The first prize is a one-day juice cleanse. Second prize is a Dragon Bowl Lunch Special and third, a smoothie.

In May we celebrate our first year in our new building at 120 North Main.  It has been a beautiful year thanks to the “regulars” who are in daily and weekly for bowls, juices, smoothies, and those who shop for gifts during the holidays and throughout the year.  Thank you for coming in! It is nice also, as word spreads, to have so many out-of-towners find us and enjoy our healthy food and drink.

An exciting event will be taking place for the first time in Livingston in the month of May, Craft Beer Week, May 11-16. One of the many events taking place that week will be hosted by Wheatgrass Saloon, Art on Tap, May 13th at 6pm.  It will be an art class given by artists Betsy Hall and and Edd Enders while enjoying some handcrafted beers and snacks. More details to come! In the meantime, check out the Tap Into Montana FB page to learn more about the festival.

Summer hours at Wheatgrass Saloon will begin May 1st. Summer hours will be Monday – Saturday from 10am -5pm.
