Paula Sayers is an Ojibwe artist committed to helping preserve Native American pictographs and rock art. On Friday, Oct. 20, the Lewistown Art Center will hold a reception for the artist from 5-7 p.m., where her work will be on display.

Sayers is visiting Lewistown to present a series of work especially created to benefit the Bear Gulch pictograph site and Lewistown Art Center.

Featured at the LAC will be eight framed stone tiles depicting vignettes of pictographs found at Bear Gulch. These images are painted on limestone utilizing genuine red earth harvested in Montana for the monochromatic renderings.

The Bear Gulch pictograph site is located in Forest Grove, just to the southeast of Lewistown, Montana, situated on property owned by Macie Lundin-Ahlgren and her family. Anyone who’s curious about pictographs and ancient rock art is invited to attend.
