What makes our gallery special?...

The chance to chat with the artists while you shop! We are staffed entirely by the artist who show their work at Paint Metal and Mud so you will always have at least one expert in the gallery every day we're open! 

 



And if you come visit us during our evening artist receptions or other events you'll get to enjoy the fact that our members are almost as good at cooking and baking as they are in their chosen medium!

Stop in to see what's new in the gallery this month and thank you as always for supporting your local artists!

Guest Artist for February: Jill Cate of WildWood

Jill Cate is the maker and creator of WildWood. 


"WildWood was brought to life from a love of wood at a young age.  I would find myself drawn to the garage with my dad who has always inspired me to pick up a saw and hammer. Besides the smell of freshly cut wood, I enjoy searching and finding a purpose for pieces that would otherwise be tossed into a landfill.  This love of wood has grown into creating one of a kind, Montana inspired, wood art. It is a passion of mine to bring new life to old reclaimed wood. Every piece is original. Has a story to be told. From the nail holes, worming, knots, layers of color, grains, textures, saw lines, charring; all of these natural and man-made imperfections give it its character and beauty that can be encapsulated into one piece of art. There is something inspiring about transforming wood that is old, weathered and “rescued” and pairing it with some new mediums to create a piece where the old and new mesh as one. So with each hand cut piece, board by board, nail by nail a unique piece is created just for you." 

Stop by the gallery this month and find the perfect piece for your home!
