Arts & Culture

Billings artist Gordon McConnell taps into the movies of Hollywood’s Golden age as inspiration for his paintings and multi-media pieces.

He also uses some iconic Western images in his artwork, like stagecoaches and bison.

“I love those animals, and I love going through the Lamar Valley. I’ve had experiences being out on those roads even at night and driving into a bison herd on the road and listening to their stomachs rumbling. It’s quite a wonderful experience.”

Cool jazz weaves through the room as I sip a pretty cocktail with house made tinctures and infusions. As my back sinks into the soft leather seat, I study a menu with large clean print. A server comes by and gently places a basket of warm bread at the table. I smile inhaling the aroma of baked wheat and melting sweet butter. Then sizzle and fire flash into the room from the open kitchen. I am happy and become happier when I take my first bite of a summer tomato salad garnished with basil leaves on fresh Burrata.

As the saying goes “…you are what you eat,” but what you eat can be history.

Two researchers will be in Sidney, Montana this Saturday to meet with residents in the hunt for clues into the history of Roosevelt and Richland counties through the food of that area.
