Cathryn Reitler is the upcoming featured Artist of the Month at Wheatgrass Arts and Gallery in downtown Glasgow. A well known local working artist, Reitler has been a staple of Northeast Montana's art scene for some years with displays at local events, the regional fairs and the recent Wild Bunch Art Show.

Her work features realistic scenes of Northeast Montana landscapes and wildlife in mixed media with relics of the region, ranging from vintage maps, old glass bottles and rusted oil cans, to grandma's old doilies and handmade wares. Her style embraces a fusion of natural painted scenery and up-cycled antique treasures that captures the spirit of the region in its utility, beauty and diversity.

"I'm eagerly anticipating the exhibition of my work at the Wheatgrass Gallery this coming Friday [Dec. 1]. In typical fashion I'm burning the candle at both ends trying to finish a few pieces for the 'big reveal' that evening," said Reitler, adding, "I'm really looking forward to seeing friends and members of the community. I'm grateful to have the opportunity to share my love of this place, 'our' place with them."


An open house will be held at Wheatgrass Arts and Gallery on Friday, Dec. 1, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
