Perkatory Tea House and Curiosities will host its opening celebration Friday, showing off the newest and only specialty tea and coffee shop in Bridger.
Located in the center of Zier Gallery, the fun, bright and colorful shop features Tumblewood Teas, a variety of coffee drinks and Montana made gifts. Owner Mary Michael is bringing back tea time and offers art, curiosities, coffee and tea all in one spot. Madhatter Teaparties — birthdays and small group events — are soon to come.
To top off the day, the gallery will also open a new group show, “Wild Wilderness Women,” in the main gallery.
Gallery owner Dana Zier said this is the first time the group of women artists will exhibit their work done in plein air on the Beartooth Mountains.
The group, consisting of Zier and organizer Diane Greenwood with Laura Anderson, Mary Knapp, Connie Herberg, Debra Zimbleman, Louise Payovich, and Karen and Megan Greenwood, meets each summer at the top of the Beartooths to paint. Their plein-air landscapes show the freshness and mood of painting on-site, and capture the essence of the nature of some of Montana’s greatest mountains.
On Friday, the artists will be available to meet and greet from 4 to 7 p.m.
Zier Gallery is located at 120 S. Main St. in Bridger. For more information, call 298-0841.
