Pictured is one of the many works of art by Keely Perkins. The Wheatgrass Arts and Gallery will be hosting Perkins at its October Artist of the Month reception on Saturday, Oct. 7.

The Wheatgrass Arts and Gallery will host Keely Perkins at its Artist of the Month reception on Sunday, Oct. 7, from 3 to 5 p.m.

Perkins' artwork reflects her constant amazement of nature, both flora and fauna. She loves the legend of creation, the way an animal or color or plant can represent a person or omen. She loves how all creation is connected and that connection is not something that is built, but has been always been inside of us.

She is influenced by color and pattern, the mismatch of nature, the unexpected pairing of animals and colors. All of which is reflected in her painting and pottery. Perkins, a native of Miles City, is the owner/artist of Stone's Throw Studio. She works in oil, watercolor, acrylic and is a potter. Perkins is represented in galleries across Montana and Washington and has shown regionally and nationally. The public is invited.

Perkins will also be offering a Sip and Paint class on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 10 a.m. -12 p.m. Participants will create an acrylic sugar skull painting on stretched canvas. Fee is $50 plus a non-refundable $10 deposit, which includes all materials and a light snack.
