Creating Art in the Garden – Quickly

By Beacon Staff

The Hockaday Museum of Art held its Return to the Garden gala at the Hilton Garden Inn this evening.

One of the cool things about this event is that several local artists (painters in this case) bring a penciled in or otherwise partially completed work. During the reception, the event’s guests network and chat with the artists – while the artists complete their painting.

In 2 hours.

Once the paintings are completed, the guests and artists enjoyed dinner in preparation for an auction of the just-completed paintings. After the auction, dancing to Karen Ulmer’s Columbians jazz band from Columbia Falls High School.

Artists who participated in this year’s event:

Jennifer Li

Mark Ogle

Nancy Cawdrey

Karen Leigh

Nicholas Oberling

Tara Moore
