The Downtown Art Challenge is a unique event that aims to celebrate local and regional artists while promoting our beautiful Montana landscapes. This year, we have invited 11 talented artists to participate in a paint-out in our downtown core, where they will depict captivating scenes of Montana landscapes en plein-air. Following the paint-out, the finished artworks will be displayed at the Good Luck Gallery in downtown Kalispell from August 19th to September 23rd. During this time, we will also be hosting a month-long online auction, allowing art enthusiasts from around the world to bid on these captivating pieces. The auction proceeds will be allocated to support the artists, the Kalispell Downtown Association, and the esteemed Hockaday Museum of Art. On Saturday, September 23rd, we will be hosting a closing Artist Reception at Good Luck Gallery to mark the end of the auction and celebrate the success of the event. e hope to see you during our Downtown Art Challenge festivities!
