News from Sandpiper Art Gallery

POLSON — Sandpiper Art Gallery and Gifts in Polson has opened the application period for their art scholarship program. Each year they offer art scholarships to deserving students from Lake and Sanders Counties.  

Scholarships are available to students accepted or currently enrolled in college, specialized art schools, and vocational institutions. Applicants must meet criteria of majoring in art forms such as painting, sculpture, fiber art, graphic art, photography, and ceramics. Criteria also includes professional careers in education, research, scientific art illustration, art archeology, and museum curatorship.

The non-profit Sandpiper Gallery began about 50 years ago in Polson with a mission to encourage and promote appreciation and participation in the arts. They use money from their art-in-the-park shows for scholarships.

Students may get applications from three sources: their high school, by email at, or from the website:    

Applications may be mailed or delivered to P. O. Box 1163, 306 Main Street, Polson, MT 59860.  Applications are due by May 1.
