On June 5th we were invited to display our photography at the Headframe Spirits Distillery owned by John and Courtney McKee. Heidi Rosenleaf is the tasting room manager who arranged for this display in 2013 and it finally came about in June.
We were so excited about this venture, being that this was the first time we have shown our photographs by Scott T. Campbell and Pat Campbell. We had a wonderful time and it also took place at the same time as a special for teachers who were celebrating the end of the school year. We met a lot of new people and touched base with those that we haven’t seen for awhile. Our photography consists of photographs printed on canvas, wood, aluminum and acrylics. They are gallery wrapped or framed according to our taste and sense of what we like best. They can be ordered in any format.
The distillery is not a bar, but rather a tasting room. As provisioned in the Montana State Code when distilling was legalized: “Two ounces per person per day – sale of two bottles per person per day.” Only alcohol which was produced by the distillery is served. The name is taken from the headframes that dot the landscape in uptown Butte. The distillery was founded in 2010. The distillery expresses a fondness for spirits along with a love of the rich history of our community. The bar is the original Rocky Mountain Bar, on loan from the World Museum of Mining. That is our goal as photographers; to bring to life the richness in Butte as it is today through the people and the surroundings.
It is so wonderful to be sharing our inspiration and interpretation of Butte and all of Montana. We also print pictures from throughout the United States and Canada. Our photograph portfolio is an expression of our passion for nature, landscape, scenery and people from all walks of life and anything else we find inspiring.
I can’t say enough for the hospitality and friendliness expressed by John, Courtney and Heidi. They are wonderful people dedicated to bringing this city back to life. They contribute so much in many ways to the community and encourage new artists to follow their dream.
We hope you will visit our site www.montanacreativegifts.com or look for us at the local farmers’ market and bazaars; or call us to see our portfolio.

Come and drink in the spirit of Butte and look for us around town as we display our photography throughout the community.
That’s what memories are made of!
