    Gallery Guide

The Missoula Cultural Council was formed in February 1991 as the result of a two year public planning process. A written report, The Fabric of Missoula, provided the basis for the formation of Missoula Cultural Council as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. The first of its kind in Montana, the Missoula Cultural Council is a local arts agency as defined by the National Endowment for the Arts. Soon after its formation, Missoula Cultural Council was designated an official cultural agency for Missoula County and the City of Missoula. Today, the Missoula Cultural Council supports and promotes a wide range of cultural Missoula events, including First Night Missoula, Last Best Solstice, First Friday Missoula, as well as hosts online Missoula art galleries, Missoula museum and Missoula events directories.

Holiday Show
Group Exhibition & Sale / Nov 21 - Dec 31

Radius Gallery is inviting artist to submit works for its first annual Holiday Show, a juried fine arts exhibit to run throughout the holiday season. The show will be advertised as a holiday shopping opportunity—a place where discerning buyers can find original, high quality yet affordable works to collect or give as gifts. To that end, we encourage—but don’t insist on—the submission of small-ish works that can be sold in the $50-$400 price range. Jurors will select pieces for inclusion in the show based on quality and originality, as well as salability. Prizes will be awarded in multiple categories.

Artists may submit only their own original artworks. Artists are free to set the retail prices of their submitted works, but every artwork must be for sale. Radius Gallery will receive a 50% commission for each piece sold from the exhibit.
