INTRODUCTION:

A selected group of nationally renowned artists came together on a picturesque ranch in Philipsburg, Montana.  There they would paint or sculpt while sharing their creative process.  These painters or sculptors spent two days immersing themselves into the incredible beauty surrounding them.

 

DAY ONE:
Each with their unique perspectives, the artists let us see into their minds to picture what inspired them. Thus we got to experience what sparked their ideas to envision a completed masterpiece. 

After a full and rewarding day, they wrapped up for the evening, and while comparing their days' experiences, they enjoyed the camaraderie that exists between artists. 

DAY TWO:

The artists rose early the next morning excited about the new day and returning to their ideas from the day before.  This is the day that they blocked in their studies and refined their compositions.  We got to see the components that were added, subtracted, or left in place.  Thrilling to watch!  Then they headed back to the ranch to revel in each other's company.  

GRAND OPENING:

This is the day we saw the Grand Opening of Illume Gallery West in the town of Philipsburg, Montana!  The artists from the event at the ranch joined the party to open their new gallery.  The collectors that attended raved as they celebrated  the beauty of the art that surrounded them.

 

MOVING FORWARD:

With the wealth of inspiration, the artists headed home to their studios to create larger finished masterpieces. 

FOR SALE:

These magnificent pieces are now for sale through the gallery!
