Zoot Art Gallery
About The Gallery
The Zoot Art Gallery in Bozeman, Montana features a rotating schedule of works by Montana artists in a corporate exhibition space for the enjoyment of employees and the community alike.
When Zoot founder and CEO Chris Nelson planned Zoot’s headquarters he required an unusual design element: space for a dedicated, first-rate art gallery. “Art spurs creativity in the work place and we wanted to have that environment here. It’s also important to provide local artists with a venue to display their works,” says Nelson.
The museum quality gallery boasts 108 linear feet of wall hanging space and large floor areas for sculpture. All work sold through the gallery is commission-free. The exhibits of Montana-only artists rotate approximately every three months, and are selected by the Zoot Committee for the Arts.
The Zoot Art Gallery is open to the public from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Gallery hours are extended for artist’s opening receptions, generally held from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

Not only is the physical space of Zoot’s gallery impressive, so is the range of artists who exhibit their work here. Each show is completely different from the one before. This allows the diversity of Montana’s artists to be seen and regular attendees to experience many artistic styles.
The artists who have shown at Zoot are also featured at top galleries and juried shows nationally and internationally. More important than their credentials, however, is the passion and technique they bring to their work. These are artists whose paintings explode with color in landscapes or abstracts, or whose collages blend multimedia images to transform the mundane into story.
Zoot’s art committee has selected work from plein air painters, chain-saw sculptors, stained glass environmentalists, and more. Receptions are lively with large turnouts to enjoy the music and food.

I’ve been fortunate to exhibit in the Zoot Art Gallery. It was an honor for me to display my artwork in such a well designed space and among such a friendly and generous group of people. This is a fabulous community resource for artists. The gallery is well worth a visit if you haven’t had the opportunity to do so.

Kasia has instant rapport with her subjects, capturing their charm, warmth, sensitivity and wisdom is her great pleasure and challenge. In painting scenes from life, she strives to show the moods that vibrate between people and fill their world. She seeks not only to portray the features of her subjects, but to define their inner values. Her show includes various subject ranging from ballerinas, portraiture work, city scenes and her newest additions – her Montana paintings of horses, sheep and western landscapes.
Her paintings have been featured in twelve one-person exhibitions in Poland, Holland and New York. She participated in 28 group shows in Europe and the US.
