Starting a New Tradition

Sadly, the global pandemic has pushed us to scale down Summer ArtFest this year. We are moving to an online-dominant format, with purchases being made online. However, we will be hosting small speaker events at Nancy Cawdrey Gallery over June 24th to 27th, while also being streamed live via Zoom.  Summer ArtFest gives Western art lovers a unique opportunity to meet and talk to their favorite artists while enjoying catered food and drinks, artist demonstrations and educational presentations. We still strive to preserve this despite the circumstances. Attendees and supporters inevitably connect and bond over a shared love of fine art while supporting local, regional and national artists.

The Summer Artfest Team

A group of art enthusiasts, gallery owners and business partners have come together to manifest their common goal of creating a space in the Whitefish Community for art of all veins. Gleaning from numerous areas of expertise, this core team of Summer ArtFest is moving forward with expanded plans for coming years of the festival.
