Tea and Art

Tea and Art

Lake Missoula Tea Company values artisan, highly-crafted teas and is excited to promote equally crafted local art three ways:

Missoula First Fridays

The first Friday of every month, one local artist has the opportunity to hang their art on our walls that month.   We select one artist and coordinate with them to promote the event.  This is a good way for an artist “to get their feet” or for a seasoned artist to have fun with a show in an informal setting.


Where would tea ware be without clay?  We think not very far!  Our Potters-in-Residence program offers in-store shelf space and Art Talk opportunities to local tea ware potters affiliated with the Clay Studio of Missoula or Ceramics at the University of Montana. Our current residents are Pat Hoban and Andrew Rivera from the Clay Studio of Missoula. Hoban’s First Friday reception is Oct 4th and his Art Talk is Nov 7. Rivera’s First Friday reception is Dec 6th. His Art Talk is Jan 13th. See what our local potters are up to and if you would like to participate, we encourage you to apply!

Yes, musicians, we love you too!  Want to jam in a casual setting during on one of our late night Fridays or a Missoula First Friday?  We welcome your talent.
