About Us

The Sanders County Arts Council supports performing, visual, and literary arts as well as education on the arts for adults and youth. Because we serve this entire northwestern Montana county, members of our Board of Directors are from various communities who come together to actively sponsor the arts. We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization and depend on grants, contributions, and volunteers to accomplish our goals. We currently sponsor (1) a performing arts season, “Tapestry," which brings a series of six performances into our county; (2) an annual array of visual arts events, “Mosaic," which includes ongoing art exhibits and an annual three-day event featuring both visual and performing artists from Sanders County; (3) and a series of arts-based events in schools.



To enhance individual growth and community vitality through opportunities for artistic expression, learning, and appreciation.
