About the event

The story of Nancy Cooper Russell  a woman ahead of her time. A self-taught business woman with an innate ability to take charge, she helped turn a rambunctious cowboy  into a highly praised American Artist. Viewed against the backdrop of the social and political reform which occurred during the early decades of the twentieth century, Nancy Cooper Russell was a woman ahead of her time. Today, scholars consistently identify Nancy as the entrepreneurial force behind the extraordinary number of Russell paintings and sculptures that now grace public galleries and private collections. In a performance that brings Nancy to life, Mary Jane Bradbury shares the story of how the couple met, describe the world of art into which Nancy propelled them, and tell tales about the artists and celebrities the Russells befriended as they traveled from Montana, where they spent their summers in Glacier Park, to New York City, and eventually to a growing California suburb called Hollywood.

Mary Jane Bradbury is a storyteller and historic interpreter who has traveled the Rocky Mountain west for over 30 years, bringing history to life for audiences of all ages. 

The stories of cattle drives and Charlie Russell through Beaverhead County are told through song and storytelling. Philip Page is a Singer, Songwriter, Story Teller who has traveled Montana sharing songs and stories of cattle drives into Montana.
