World renowned wildlife sculptor describes Montana using three words
If you could pick only three words to describe, Montana, what three words would you use?
Hard question to answer?
We put a Montanan on the spot with that question in each issue for our Big Sky Spotlight feature. We created the feature because we figured there are plenty of Montanans you ought to know. So why not put one in the magazine?
Clark Schreibeis, truly a hidden treasure in our state, is a world renonwed wildife carver and sculptor who has won dozens of best in world awards for his work. Clark was featured as the Big Sky Spotlight in the March/April issue. He answered several questions for the story’s writer Jim Gransbery, telling us about how and when he finds creativity to create such amazing art. Check out the full post of the story to learn more about Clark and what three words he uses to describe Montana.
Have you thought of your three words yet?

New Big Sky Spotlight highlights somebody (from MT) you should know
We started debuted a “department” in the first issue of 2014 called Big Sky Spotlight.
We have several departments, or standard story formats, that appear in most issues and we thought, why not add on featuring a Montanan you should know?
The idea is to give readers a quick look at a Montanan making a difference, creating beautiful art or just living the Montana Life.
And, we thought, we not let them answer a few questions for us while we’re at it?
Our inaugural Big Sky Spotlight featured Becky Hillier, a Miles City native who worked tirelessly for the past several years with a dedicated group of people to help hundreds of Montana WWII veterans take the trip of a lifetime to Washington, D.C.
We think it’s a great way to get to know our neighbors and Big Sky Spotlight is one of the few full features we’ll post at MontanaMagazine.com.
And with that, we’re already working on our second issue of 2014, which of course will feature a BSS. Spoiler alert: In March/April we’ll feature Billings area artists Clark Schriebies.
Windy weather topples pine, crushes truck in Lincoln
The wind got the best of this huge pine the other day in Lincoln – that truck was in the wrong place at the wrong time. This photo was taken right on Main Street by our friends Jaime and Lisa Johnson.
Stay safe out there!
