We are a group of about 100 artists in the Gallatin Valley area. The artists meet to encourage each other and participate in art events. This group was formerly called Montana Institute of the Arts. SMArts meets monthly, September through May, and often has a guest artist who will give a demo or talk. SMArts is an active group with shows, paint-outs, workshops, and provides yearly programs and scholarships for kids. Feel free to peruse our site and join us for a meeting or activity.


SMArts has monthly meetings from September through May each year. We meet on the 3rd Monday morn of each month (the 4th Monday following a 3rd holiday Monday) in the Community Room of the Bozeman Public Library at 9:30 am. Following a short business meeting we often have a guest speaker/artist. There are monthly Art Challenges if you wish to participate with different themes. Please wear your name tag or make a stick-on one at the door. During the summer months there are no meetings but bi-weekly paint-outs at various locations. Please visit our blog to view all past meetings minutes and view any photos associated.
