BIG SKY – The Big Sky ArtWalk will host more than 30 Montana artists on Feb. 17 in the Meadow Village.

A biannual event now in its third year, the ArtWalk draws a range of artists, among them a bronze sculptor, a children’s book illustrator, western oil painters, a cubist painter and a custom furniture maker.

As in the past, patrons can walk between host venues, sipping hot drinks and spirits and meeting the artists. What’s new: an acapella performance, a wine tasting, and a raffle for a piece of artwork from Secret Spirit Art.

“It’s really a way to help known artists have sales and for new artists to break into the market,” said organizer JoDean Bing. “I love to show the [artists’] talent. Any reason to get together and have a little fun.”

Stop by Blue Ribbon Builders for a Mint Tingle (hot chocolate with Jameson’s and Crème de Menthe), and to peruse art from Paula Blend, Kathryn Brown and Mitch Billis.
