Print Article

In August and September, the Hockaday Museum of Art in Kalispell will hold its third annual exhibition and sale: A Timeless Legacy – Women Artists of Glacier National Park. The event opens with a fundraising sale Aug. 12, and the show runs Tuesday through Saturday, Aug. 15 through Sept. 23. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $2 for college students, and free for K-12 and members.

A new component to this year’s event is A Timeless Legacy Discovery Series, an education seminar on art collecting that will benefit collectors of all levels from beginner to expert. Discovery Series speakers will include Tim Newtown, Chairman of the Board for the Salmagundi Club of New York City, and Kathy Thompson, director of the Buffalo Bill Art Show in Cody, Wyoming. Their talks will focus on the ins and outs of art collecting and how art can enrich the community through private collections, museums and other sources. The program, which includes brunch, will be held Saturday, Aug. 12, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Red Lion Hotel Kalispell. Registration is $25 for members and $35 for non-members. Reservations are required; call 755-5268 or email sstaso@hockadaymuseum.org by Aug. 1.

A fundraising sale event will be held at 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Aug. 12. Admission is $25 for members and $35 for non-members. Reservations required.

A Timeless Legacy is one of the premier western art shows in the country for women artists. The 28 participating artists are represented by the top art galleries in their field and appear in museum and gallery shows focusing on western, wildlife and landscape art. These artists follow in the footsteps of the pioneering women artists who have painted in Glacier Park over the last century. Featured works reflect the vastness and grandeur of the Park, including landscapes and wildlife, as well as indigenous cultures and early visitors.

A Timeless Legacy has grown since the inaugural show in 2015 to become a major annual fundraising event supporting the Hockaday. The exhibition draws new artists and collectors to northwestern Montana to experience the splendor of Glacier National Park, and the highly anticipated pre-exhibition sale event makes art accessible to first-time buyers and seasoned collectors alike.

Artist information and biographies are available online.

The Hockaday Museum of Art is located in the cultural district of downtown Kalispell at 302 Second Ave East. It is housed in a 1904 Carnegie Library building that appears on the National Register of Historic Places. The Museum is a private nonprofit organization, open year-round, Tuesday through Saturday. The mission of the Hockaday is to enrich the cultural life of our community and region, and preserve the artistic legacy of Montana and Glacier National Park.
