Call for Artists: Exhibition Opportunities

We’re proud to showcase artists at the Dram Shop on our gallery walls, and we now have openings for exhibitionists! So far, we’ve featured the works of Tom Robertson, with his stunning large prints and Joey Early, with his beautiful portrait photography.

Artists should have enough work that is large enough to nicely fill the space. Wall space = 19′ x 4′ (one wall), 17′ x 4′ (second wall).

If you’ve never been to The Dram Shop, come on by and have a look at our space. We love to find work that fits right in!

Please email Sarah at [email protected] with link to website and/or portfolio.

First Friday: Photography by Joey Early

We have to say, we were thrilled when Joey Early presented us with the idea of traveling around Western Montana and taking portraits of various breweries and their brewers. We immediately recognized that bringing representations of all these breweries together at The Dram Shop almost exactly mirrored our ideas about what we aim to be to the brewing community. And we’re hoping this show will be a way for all of the area brewers, breweries, and their fans, to celebrate the unbelievable dedication to craft demonstrated in Western Montana’s local beer.

Joey has put together a collection of portraits taken with his medium format camera. Breweries included in this show: Blacksmith, Draught Works, Philipsburg, Big Sky, Great Northern, Wildwood, KettleHouse, and Great Burn.

In addition to the portraits that we’ll on display at the shop, Joey also captured some behind-the-scenes images of brewers doing their thing. We think they’re awesome, and here’s a few that we couldn’t help but post straight away.

So come down to The Dram Shop on Friday, August 7th and help us celebrate! We couldn’t be prouder to be showcasing Joey’s work, and we’re looking forward to the chance to give him a tip of the hat, and perhaps a tip of the glass.

Want to learn more about Joey Early? Here is his bio statement:

“I believe in simplicity, I believe in telling stories, I believe in truth and I believe in the power of being monochromatic.

Photography is one of few constants in my life. It is a driving force behind many of my life choices and big decisions, it is what brought my wife and I together. Photography both helps me remember and allows me to forget, it has been there for me when I needed it and at times has been a distraction. No matter where I am, or what I am doing, I feel at home with a camera in my hands. That is why I photograph.”
