May was a month of decisions... Mainly, I had to decide this, 
am I crazy enough to attempt to open a gallery?
in 2013?
in Montana?
by myself?

An opportunity presented itself and it just seemed like this was the right thing to do...

Unfortunately it took me several cookie making sessions to make up my mind (during which I discovered the most delectable almond butter cookies, nom nomm.. and after which I needed to cleanse my poor sugar loaded system with several green juices and salads...)
but in the end I decided that, well yes of course, I'm an artist! I'm totally crazy enough to start a gallery. Resort tax? Signage permits, what?

The space is a beautiful loft above Lakestream Fly Fishing Shop, at the south end of Central Ave in Whitefish. At first I thought it was very small, but then I hung my entire blooms series and realized there is actually a lot of wall space. And there's this great huge deck, which is so nice to have, especially on these balmy summer evenings...

So here it is,  the Minton Gallery :) 

Just need a little signage.

And here is my latest creation, and first work to be finished here, a Montana inspired landscape.

Backroads  9 x 12  Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas 

Now available at the Minton Gallery :)


  1. Congratulations on your beautiful new gallery, Karen. I wish you every success. And "Backroads" is gorgeous. Love your work.

  2. I love it- can't wait to come up and see for myself!
