We, as Alpine Artisans, envision the quality of life of the Seeley, Swan, and Blackfoot Valley communities being significantly enriched and enhanced through the efforts and activities of our membership and staff.

Enriching the community through the arts is an ongoing activity of Alpine Artisans. Events open to the community for its enjoyment include exhibits, art fairs, workshops, lectures, concerts and performances. The contributions of our organization to the Seeley-Swan and Blackfoot valleys are possible due to the volunteer efforts of our nearly 150 members.
