Join Meadow Village businesses on July 16 and 17 for their second Art Walk of the
year. On Saturday and Sunday from 2 – 8 p.m. the Meadow Village will be bustling
with Montana artists showing off their best work. Ten Meadow Village venues,
including galleries, restaurants and retail shops will be open for the artists to feature
their work, and for guests to take a self-guided tour. Refreshments will be provided at
each venue.

Highlights of the weekend include a show of new artists at the Gallatin River Gallery,
including Jonathan Wilde, and Montana plein air artist Joe Wayne, who will be
painting on-site during the walk. Gallatin River Gallery is located above the Lone Peak
Brewery.

Montana artist Pat Branting will be at Big Sky Furniture. Her work “Moose in Green”
was chosen to be on Natalie’s Estate Winery’s label of pinot noir. Also, Branting’s
painting “Lone Peak Colors” will be hung in the Gallatin Field Airport new addition.

Friendship International’s Rugs for Charity Group, a Colorado-based nonprofit
organization, will have imported tribal rugs for sale. The proceeds will benefit young
girls from the Kurd ethnic group, a people scattered across four different countries of
the Middle East. The sale of their hand-made rugs will pay for health care, reading and
writing education, and the possibility of rising beyond their circumstances.
