FEATURE PHOTO: Gallery Night at Discovery Square

By Beacon Staff

Nate Thompson, right, a junior at Columbia Falls High School, talks over his artwork with his mother, Alison Thompson, during the Gallery Night event at Discovery Square in Columbia Falls.

The First Best Place Centennial Committee hosted the exhibit featuring the high school students’ artwork celebrating Glacier National Park’s Centennial. Students from the advanced machine woods class – using native pine and cedar – framed the art.

Beginning a valley-wide tour, the exhibit will be on display at Montana Coffee Traders, Glacier Bank, Freedom Bank and other Columbia Falls locations for the month of April. In May, the exhibit moves to the Hockaday Museum of Art before traveling to Glacier National Park to be displayed in historic lodges.
