We recently saw an art show by Bitterroot Valley artist Pam Caughey, at the Holter Museum. The lighting and gallery space were excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the workj shown as well as the museum environment.

This small museum makes good use of its few galleries. We enjoyed seeing the works of three very different artists plus an exhibit of historic motorcycles.
