First Saturday at Ninepipes
Ninepipes Museum of Early Montana celebrates its co-founders, Laurel and Bud Cheff Jr., at two events planned for June and July.
Laurel Cheff will be the featured artist at the June 4 First Saturday event held at the museum from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m, and light refreshments will be available. There will be several recent original oil paintings of Mission Mountain scenes and of wildlife, some of which are available to purchase. Raffle tickets for one of her paintings, Glacier Creek, will be sold at the museum starting June 4 and going through July 17. The painting depicts a scene on the south end of Crazy Horse in the Mission Mountains. Tickets prices are 3 for $10, and 7 for $20. The drawing will be held at the event celebrating Bud Cheff Jr. on July 17.
The Montana Historical Society selected Bud Cheff Jr. as a Heritage Keeper Award recipient in 2021. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Ninepipes Museum has not been able to celebrate this honor with museum friends and neighbors until now. The July 17 celebration is also a fundraiser to benefit the nonprofit 501(c)3 museum and ticket prices are $30 per person. There is limited space for the event so only 75 tickets will be sold. Call the museum at 406-644-3435, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase your ticket! The event runs from 2 to 5 p.m. and includes entertainment, heavy hors d’oeuvres, auction items, a raffle, and a cash beer and wine bar.
