Art Focus Fine Arts & Framing
Art Focus Fine Arts & Framing takes pride in showing mainly original art in oil, watercolor, pastels, plus original graphics. The artists exhibited use a wide variety of techniques to interpret the Montana life-style with particular emphasis on local scenery. While not the primary emphasis, the gallery handles select limited edition prints or has access to most images offered on today’s market. Art Focus concentrates on ceramics as an art form rather than being purely functional and offers a variety of styles. The gallery offers sculptures in bronze, wood or clay of exceptional craftsmanship as well as decorative posters and jewelry. All framing is done in-house according to superior standards set by the Professional Picture Framers Association, PPFA, to which we belong. Our knowledgeable staff keep abreast of the latest developments made in preservation and conservation framing. We take pride in our craftsmanship. This means that you, the customer, may be assured of the finest care and protection of the work left to be framed.

After various businesses operated in the building in the early 1900s, including a Chinese laundry opened in 1915 (hence the fading sign, STEAM LAUNDRY, on the side of the building) until Bill Snediger, a local blacksmith, bought it in 1951. Amazingly, Snediger operated his blacksmith shop for rest of the century, until 2000.

Come in and sample the flavors of Montana in our variety of honey meads.  All our wines are made from local ingredients gathered from the fields and mountain valleys surrounding Hamilton. Our wine-maker makes world class products that are a new experience for the traditional wine drinker.

So if you’ve tried our honey wine under the old Trapper Creek label you will get the same honey wine under our new lable. The Winery also moved into a 3000 square foot facility on Highway 93 where it currently operates. Hidden Legend Winery uses 100% Montana-made honey to handcraft a pure honey mead, a dark mead, three berry meads, and a spiced mead. Our wines are all natural and do not have any sulfites added.
