Barbara Garrett is a Billings-based painter and will be on hand at this ArtWalk to do a meet-and-greet. While living in New Mexico, Barbara began to immerse herself in her work as an artist. While a member of the Camino Real 8 art group located in central New Mexico, she found a passion for applying her art skills to wildlife and landscape subjects. She returned to her beloved Montana after being away for 24 years and continues to explore her love for the land and the creatures that inhabit it. Her work is available for purchase in the Art Collectors’ Corner.
A cash bar and light hors d’oeuvres are provided during ArtWalk. First drink is free for new member sign-ups and membership renewals. The YAM also has free parking.
