Open house

Happy Holidays from all of us at the Art Center. On Saturday, Dec. 9 from 1-8 p.m., we’ll be hosting a special Open House as a way to say thanks to all those wonderful folks who support our organization. We’ll have warm drinks and holiday treats on hand, and LAC members will receive special discounts on gift shop merchandise. Stop by and check out our incredible selection of work from over 150 Montana artists.


Wilkins Gallery reception

The Art Center is so pleased to welcome the Montana Painter’s Alliance to Lewistown once again. This juried group of professional artists holds outdoor “paint-outs” throughout the state, depicting Montana’s stunning scenery in a variety of mediums and in all kinds of weather. Please join us Friday, Dec. 3 from 5-7 p.m. as we meet the artists and explore a selection of their works. Refreshments will be served. To learn more about the Montana Painter’s Alliance please



On Dec. 16, local musicians will gather at Jack’s Hangar to serenade us with an evening of seasonal songs. This is the sixth annual WinterSongs Concert, and is sure to be better than ever with an incredible lineup, live and silent auctions of gifts and getaways, a sculpture raffle, gourmet appetizers and hearty beverages. Doors open at 6 p.m., with music starting at 7:30. Proceeds from this fundraiser support the exciting youth education programs held at the Art Center throughout the year. Seating is limited; stop by the Art Center soon to get your tickets.


Social Night: Storytellers

Everyone is invited for this very special Social Night at the Art Center, celebrating our community and the wealth of stories within it. We’ll cozy up under holiday lights as we eat, drink and be merry...and spin tales into the evening. Will there be romance? Wild adventure? Tall tales and whoppers, myths and flights of fancy? Or perhaps even a few Lewistown ghost stories? Join us and see. No need to register; all are welcome. Holiday treats will be provided. Guests are encouraged to bring along their favorite beverage and/or a dish to share.

We’re still looking for more story submissions. Give us a call at 535-8278 or stop by the Art Center to pitch your story or get more information.
