Uptown Art Walk
Thursday, October 4, 2012, 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm

The last Uptown Art Walk of the 2012 season will fill Uptown streets again from 5 pm to 9 pm on Thursday, October 4th.

Several Uptown stores and especially
restaurants will join in the event and stay open on these evenings for the shopping convenience of their customers and to add to the festivities.

Uptown Butte's regular art galleries will remain open for the evening with special shows and receptions for their patrons. These galleries include the Charles W. Clark Chateau (321 W. Broadway), the Venus Rising Espresso (128 W. Granite St.), Main Stope Gallery (45 W. Park St.) the Phoenix Gallery (14 S. Dakota St.), Martha U. Cooney Studio (8 W. Park St., Suite 310) the
Uptown Cafe (47 E. Broadway) and the S. Jenkins Gallery (66 W. Park St.). New art will also be on display at the studio suites at Studio 41, the art studios above the Main Stope Gallery.


Butte's uptown art galleries and various other venues, including the featured artist gallery, US Bank, at Park and Main, host artists at these venues from 5 to 9 pm. Pedestals painted by Butte High School art students will be standing outside of each of the participating art walk galleries to mark the entrances. While art walks provide an opportunity for the general public to meet the respective artists as you enjoy a refreshment or two, they are also a great way to see Uptown Butte in the evening during the warmer months. And, there is no admission fee for any of the venues.

The US Bank will host the work of featured artists, the University of Montana Student and Faculty Exhibition.

An opening reception for the artists, at which refreshments will be served, will be held from 5 to 9 pm. Other venues during the evening will also feature snacks and refreshments.
