Thomas the Apostle Retreat Center
ART STUDIO & EXHIBITS
Thomas the Apostle Center has had the dream of bringing the arts and creativity to the heart of its visitors since before the center even existed. There is one large art studio on property that hosts monthly events for the community and rental programs.
The art exhibits in each conference space allow for local artists to display their work. The exhibition wall in Daphne’s house, alongside the art studio, is a rotating space to display different artist’s newest accomplishments. The Gallery Room in the Studio House is a display of Daphne Grime's sculptures and paintings.
The property art studio offers an adjacent bathroom connected to the rental. The lawn and patio space outside its floor-to-ceiling window view lends itself to creative musings as well. Art classes, workshops and forums love gathering in the various spaces depending on the weather and season.
To create a private event in the space, it is $150 for a full-day and $75 for a half day. There is a $100 additional fee if the space is not returned in its original condition.
Please eye the schedule below for TAC Artists-On-Display from 2022.
Call the office for space inquiries in 2023.

Plein Air Impressionism
Linda Franson is primarily a plein air painter having begun in California where the weather permits almost year round outside painting.
She loves the landscape, its beauty and its secrets and has had extensive volunteer experience assisting the horticulturist in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. This honed her observation skills and knowledge of plants in the landscape. Since moving back to Montana she has concentrated on the superb views around Billings and areas to the west and south. We live in magnificent country here!

Oil and Pastel
In July and August, a group of local artists are coming together to display different view points and expressions highlighting Cody's central display, Heart Mountain. This is in collaboration with the Buffalo Bill Center of the West and the Summer 2022 NEH Workshops at the Heart Mountain Institute.
Thank you to all the artists who are apart of this collaboration.
All proceeds go back to the artist and their continued work.

Heart Mountain Exhibit
Her work crosses the borders between representational and abstract expression; at times colors and images from more realist works appearing in abstract paintings. Oil paint and oil pastel are the mediums with which she works. She will lead an Abstraction with Oil Painting workshop on October 15th. Space limited.
Rose paints both outside and inside. Outside, she paint observations, using all senses. Her field studies are usually representational, and later inform painting in the studio.
