Kirks’ Grocery is an art gallery and all ages performance space located in Billings, Montana dedicated to showing contemporary art from local, regional, national, and international artists that fall outside of the typical Western Art that is associated with Montana galleries.

Our philosophy of giving unusual art a platform extends to the performance space where Kirks’ hosts DIY all ages shows and events featuring everything from spoken word poetry to experimental musical performances and DIY touring musicians along with independent film and documentaries.

Kirks’ is a community oriented center for all ages and abilities. We now offer the chance to become a member and support us in a number of capacities. You can purchase a monthly membership that gets you admission to every event, you can volunteer to work the door, sell refreshments, and help set up for the musical performances.

This is your community and Kirks’ Grocery is a creative force for positive change. Let’s do it together.

Jason Jam: Horizon April 5 – May 25, 2024

Opening reception: Friday, April 5, 5–9 pm (during ArtWalk) with delicious food by Chef Ashley Woodward. Kirks’ Grocery is proud to present Horizon, an exhibition of new work in pencil, gouache, and watercolor by Jason Jam. Jam’s recent work in pencil uses subtle value shifts to create images of wonder and mystery. Millions of carefully arranged soft pencil marks have gone into these unusual images which take dozens of hours to create. Horizon also reveals Jam’s newest colorful landscapes. The artist has used unconventional tools and quick brush strokes to apply vibrant gouache over layered washes of rich watercolor. The effect is to draw the viewer into his world. Truly a sight to behold.
