The Yellowstone Gateway Museum is proud to facilitate the sale of all accepted artworks during the exhibition. All proceeds benefit the Foundation of the Yellowstone Gateway Museum.

Lucinda Reinold, a Paradise Valley, Montana resident since 2013, is the art exhibit juror. She has a masters and doctorate degree in the History of Art from the University of California, Berkeley. Reinold taught art history at UC Berkeley, Carleton College in Northfield, MN, and at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA. She has served on many non-profit art organization boards, including the San Francisco Art Institute, the Capp Street Project, the Djerassi Resident Artists Program, and the Oxbow School of Art. Currently, she sits on the board of the Park County Environmental Council.
"Above all, we hope that everyone who comes to this exhibit will enjoy it and be inspired by the beauty of the Park and the Greater Yellowstone area, and the artists’ efforts to interpret it," said Reinold.
