Sandpiper Art and Gift Gallery is a non-profit artist's cooperative, supporting the arts and art education in Lake County, Montana. It was founded in 1971 by a group of artists, many of whom remain involved today. The all-volunteer membership participates in the operation of the gallery and gift shop. Each year Sandpiper gives scholarships to deserving Lake and Sanders County students. We hosts nine gallery exhibits, and two Art Festivals; the Flathead Lake Festival of Art in late July and the Sandpiper Art Festival on the Courthouse Lawn in August.
Our mission is to encourage and promote participation in the arts in Lake County, Montana. We provide educational opportunities through workshops, scholarships, exhibits, a library, and other resources. We believe that the inherent value of the fine arts enhances the quality of life and merits our attention.
