Come Enjoy Nancy’s work at Cawdrey Gallery!

Please consider visiting us at the Cawdrey Gallery in the heart of Whitefish, Montana, nestled against the Whitefish Range.  The Cawdrey Gallery is located in downtown Whitefish, a 15 minute drive from Whitefish Mountain Resort and 30 minute drive to West Glacier and Glacier National Park.  A landscaped patio produces a riot of flowers, which invites us to exercise our creativity every day.

Inside, the gallery walls are adorned with an abundance of Contemporary Western Art, creating a feast of color and diversity.  In addition to Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey, featured artists include her son and protégé Morgan Cawdrey.  Art classes are offered annually by premier artists of the American West including John Reinhold and Michael Ome Untiedt.

Nancy often hosts an open studio by appointment where visitors can watch the painting process and interact with the artist.  These intimate experiences are an opportunity to learn from Nancy as well as to simply enjoy watching her as she masterfully captures the essence of her subject, transforming two dimensional energy into exquisite color.  Please contact the gallery for more information.

Nancy’s work has been included in invitational art shows across the West. They include the The Russell: The Sale to Benefit the C.M.Russell Museum, the Wild 100 at the National Museum of Wildlife Art, the Buffalo Bill Art Show, the Gilcrease Museum and the National Cowboy Museum.

She is a founding member of the Russell Skull Society of Artists and was the featured artist of the 2014 Fall Arts Festival in Jackson, Wyoming.

“I like strength and statement in my work; I can only guide these paintings – the medium itself defies control and I like that.  For me, it’s the jazz of painting.”

We are now located at 206 Lupfer Avenue in Whitefish and are open from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Winter Hours), Tuesday – Saturday or by appointment.  You can reach us at 406-730-8680 or
