This October, the spectacular photography of Anaconda's Mike Rosenleaf will be featured in the art gallery at Copper Village Museum and Arts Center in Anaconda.

Born, raised and based in Anaconda

Rosenleaf, a lifelong Anaconda resident, did not get started in photography until he was a student at Anaconda High School and found himself in a photography class.  What started out as a class turned into a hobby and eventually into the artist you see today who has won numerous awards and contests.  What makes Rosenleaf's work unique is the unique perspective he represents when capturing Montana's natural beauty.  His use of natural color and beauty is certainly gallery-worthy and well worth the trip.

Opening reception is October 6

Mike's opening reception will be this Thursday, October 6th in the gallery at the Copper Village Museum and Arts Center which is located at 401 Commercial in Anaconda.  The opening will run from 4:30 until 7pm.  If you miss the reception, stop by the gallery to appreciate his work.  It will be open through October on Tuesdays thru Fridays from 10am to 4pm.

Museum building a sight in itself

The Copper Village Museum and Arts Center is in what was once a magnificent City Hall completed in 1896 under the watchful eye of Copper King Marcus Daly who, alongside many, wished for Anaconda to become the Capital of the newly-founded State of Montana.  It is built impressively so.  The building was abandoned in 1976 and slated for demolition but was rescued by local citizens in 1978.  It has since been renovated and remodeled into the beautiful and modern facility you see today.  They hope to see you this October.
