In this class, you’ll learn to work with PMC3 (fine silver) to create a pair of earrings and a pendant, or two pendants (your choice). We’ll cover texturing, shaping, drying, sanding, firing, burnishing, adding a patina, and polishing. You will be provided with a supply list and resources to help you pursue this fun medium further in your home. The materials fee covers the cost of 16 grams of PMC3, use of class tools, a chain and ear wires so you can wear your jewelry out the door.

Green Door Gallery
120 N. Main, Livingston, MT

Join us at Green Door Gallery for an exhibit of landscape paintings by artist Joan
Watts. Ms. Watts, a New York City native and Livingston resident began her art
studies at age seven when her parents sent her to art school in Chicago with students
three times her age. She later studied in England, California and Kyoto, Japan. In Japan
she studied “sumi-e”, a traditional form of Japanese painting with master painter
Semba Sensei. This experience greatly influenced her painting style.
Ms. Watts says of her work that she paints images in an ethereal, somewhat surreal
style influenced by her training in Japan.
The reception for the exhibit will take place in conjunction with the release of a book,
The Collected Letters of Alan Watts, that together with her sister she has edited. Ms.
Watts is the daughter of the late Alan Watts, Zen Author and philosopher. Ms. Watts
will do a reading for the release of the book at 7pm.

Holiday Lights!

Holiday Lights of Livingston would like to extend our warmest thanks for your participation in the past fundraising campaigns. The funds raised each year pay for maintenance, the replacement of lights, and replenishing the colorful holiday pole wraps. We look forward to extending the decorations throughout more of the downtown as the city completes more of the downtown street/sidewalk replacement. We also would like to thank the volunteers from Park High School, the Chamber of Commerce, Park Electric, and Northwest Energy for their generous assistance in getting these projects accomplished every year.

Your Generous contributions enabled us to further our plans last year, including hte beautiful and festive lighting of the large trees in the Rotary Depot Park. We got several of the trees fully lit last year, and will be doing much more this year. Our goal in the next several years is to have the Park lit all the way from the Depot to 5th street. As a result of the feedback recieved - we heard from so many folks last year - w are concentrating our efforts on expanding the Light up the Park project this year. We need to raise $10,000 to accomplish this goal.

While we are grateful for all the silent and live auctions donated in prior years, we will not be holding a fundraiser for 2017, and are focusing on this particular project. Your cash donations would be gratefully appreciated. please consider a donation of $25, $50, $100, or more. You can drop off any contributions to 124 South 2nd street. Thank you for your particpation in the past, and we hope that you consider making a donation again this year.
