I wonder how you sell art if you don’t love it? Bob Streitmatter and his business partners, Robin and her brother Steve Galloway, clearly appreciate art. In fact, their decision to open the gallery was prompted by their interest in the expressive paintings by Hardin/Billings painter Harry Koyama. Koyama helped attract other artists to the gallery and one artist led to another until the Beartooth Gallery Fine Art assembled its impressive cadre of painters, sculptors, glass blowers, potters and furniture makers.
Since the gallery was founded on aesthetics and friendship, it feels like a harmonious place. Ninety percent of the gallery’s artists either live in Montana year-round or have a summer home here.
The Beartooth Gallery Fine Art is in a perky yellow-painted building on Red Lodge’s main street on the same block as the Roman Theater. Inside, the multiple rooms show groups of artwork sorted by subject and style. Native American, landscapes, wildlife, the old west, American Folk art and so much more.
Just inside, ceramic artist Christine McKay’s pottery is shown, which demonstrates her eye for detail and skill at painting birds and Native American symbols.
The Gallery hosts art shows during the summer months where you can meet the artist and view artwork by top western artists.
