Sixty works of art, selected from more than 500 entries, are exhibited through October during the Yellowstone Art Museum’s first North x Northwest art exhibition.

Works of art from 18 states, including painting, sculpture, textiles, mixed media, and photography, were selected by juror Julia Andrews, director of the Coral Springs Museum of Art.

Andrews narrowed her selections to “museum-quality work, demonstrated by a high level of skill in technique, composition and presentation that would pique the interest and curiosity of the viewer,” she described in a press release.

Two Can Play At This

According to Bryan W. Knicely, executive director of the Yellowstone Art Museum, the inaugural event offers a “sampling of the outstanding cultural programs and events that the BCP organizations have to offer each year,” ranging from art to film and music to theatre.

The largest conference and networking event for travel writers will be held in Billings. Bloggers, journalists, social media content creators, travel brand representatives, and travel industry professionals will descend on the city to explore all that Montana’s trailhead has to offer.

TBEX North America 2019 takes place Sept. 11 – 13 at the Billings Hotel and Convention Center. It’s one of two conferences held yearly by the Travel Blog Exchange across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.

To capitalize on all this publicity, members of Billings Cultural Partners have organized a 10-day introduction to the city’s arts, entertainment, and cultural scene. Events centered on film, music, art, history, and the outdoors are all on the docket for Sept. 12 – 22.

Bryan W. Knicely, executive director of Yellowstone Art Museum, in a press release, described TBEX as a catalyst for local cultural organizations to present Billings to conference attendees and rethink how they market arts in the region.

“Billings is the cultural center for the state of Montana, and we are letting everyone know that,” Knicely said.

Participating cultural partners include Alberta Bair Theater, Art House Cinema and Babcock Theatre, Billings ArtWalk, Billings Symphony, MINT Film Festival, Montana Audubon Center, Moss Mansion, Pub Station, SCRaP in Billings, Western Heritage Center, Wise Wonders Children’s Museum, and the Yellowstone Art Museum.

It’s a start…
I have an issue (insert joke about more issues than such-n-such tabloid/periodical) with taking tons of photos and only maybe 5% actually make it to instagram. So I’m going to start going through my ridiculous amount of digital imagery and share things I may have overlooked or just didn’t have time for. Anyone else keep filling up their cloud storage or is that just me? Happy February! Don’t spook the groundhog!
