Started by a group of Whitefish’s staple Galleries, Summer ArtFest is designed to showcase some of the best artists from the western art world in arguably Montana’s most picturesque city. Inspired with building a community in mind, this show has plans to expand into a week-long annual event encompassing all art forms and spread throughout the downtown Whitefish area. Join us for its Inaugural Year and help set the stage for what is yet to come!
Not only do you have auctions, live demonstrations and personal interactions with artists to look forward to; but numerous participating Galleries in Downtown Whitefish will be opening their doors and hosting workshops or engaging discussions. Visit Samarah Gallery, Going to The Sun Gallery, Frame of Reference, Group B Gallery, Dick Idol Gallery, Whitefish Pottery and Nancy Cawdrey Gallery for more events throughout the weekend.
The last weekend of June in 2019 Summer ArtFest will welcome premier contemporary Western artists for demonstrations, educational presentations, live auctions and a chance to discover new artwork to fall in love with.
