SPEND AN EVENING WITH NANCY RUSSELL AT THE MHS RUSSELL GALLERY
She didn’t paint them, but Nancy Cooper Russell had a major influence on the artwork of her husband Charlie.
On Thursday (June 23) at 6:30 p.m. at the Montana Historical Society you can spend an evening with Nancy, in the person of historical re-creator Mary Jane Bradbury, as she guides you through the highly acclaimed MHS Mackay Gallery of C.M. Russell Art.
With her business acumen and ability to focus the talents of Charlie, Nancy made Charlie the highest paid living artist of his time.
Historians, including the MHS Russell experts, consistently say that Nancy is the reason the world has the extraordinary Russell paintings and sculptures on exhibit at MHS and other institutions across the nation and world.
Nancy will share some of the stories and events in the couple’s lives from a personal and up close view of the famous cowboy artist. The program is free and open to the public. This is the last Thursday MHS evening program until the fall.
