Since 2003 we have sent thousands of care packages to troops in 19 countries, and on several Navy ships. When troops we support are wounded we support them and their families in the hospital.

Spring Art Walk – Joanna Powell

May 4, 2018

Gulch Distillers is pleased to host ceramic artist Joanna Powell for the Spring Art Walk on Friday, May 4. A former Archie Bray resident, Joanna’s work is vibrant, challenging, and playful. She writes:

What I find beautiful tends to be awkward and irregular and at times the opposite of what is considered the social norm of beauty. The work allows me a place of asylum, a fictional culture where everything and everyone is ok to exist. I want the viewer forget about an objects function and call attention to its possibilities as pure matter with its own intentions and encourage questions about what is happening with the objects. The paintings and objects have become married into installations, re-contextualizing them to function as three-dimensional paintings. My work lives in this twilight zone between painting and sculpture. I am continually searching for the sensation of something coming into focus. The objects I create are colloquialisms of my own making that reference ancient and current civilization. I believe an object can anchor the values of a culture acting as an artifact of its time.

Community Cocktails: Holter Museum

May 16, 2018


The Holter Museum of Art fuels artistic creativity and imagination in Montana through exceptional contemporary art exhibitions, collections, and educational programming.


Embracing the belief that art vitalizes and strengthens community, the Holter Museum of Art seeks to stimulate creativity, curiosity, and collaboration through the visual arts. Our mission is not just exhibiting art—we interpret it, teach it, help create it, preserve it, and build community through it. We capture the imagination of both the young and the grown through exciting exhibitions and powerful art education. We fuel our community’s curiosity and vision by exploring diverse perspectives and cultures—including contemporary Indian culture—within Montana, beyond the state, and from abroad. We honor the uniqueness of our community, of Helena and of Montana, by celebrating contemporary regional artists in our collection and, through our collection, we seek to preserve for future generations the record of our own time and place in history. Community is at the core of the Holter mission, and we strive to share the richness of the visual arts as a benefit for all.


The Holter Museum of Art serves Montana and neighboring states with a quality visual arts exhibition program that includes all media; brings national and international exhibitions into the region; provides a much-needed venue for local and regional artists; and collects, preserves, and interprets significant contemporary Northwest art. The Holter is committed to promoting participation by diverse audiences through outreach, innovative educational programming, and collaboration with other organizations. Increasing and promoting a strong cultural awareness to the broadest possible audience is a guiding factor to our operations.
