"'Montana's Circle of American Masters in Visual Folk and Traditional Arts' celebrates the contributions of Montana's master artists in visual traditional and folk arts. Throughout their lifetime, a member of Montana's Circle of American Masters has created a notable body of work. Of significant cultural and artistic stature, their work represents the historic, traditional, and innovative arts and handcrafts distinctive to the State." (from MT Arts Council description of the program) I have had the pleasure and adventure of traveling around the state, photographing these highly skilled artisans at work in their studios.
