Artists at Mammoth Hotel

'Inspired by Yellowstone' Artist Series at Mammoth Hotel

With the abundant wildlife in the Northern Range of Yellowstone, the Mammoth Hotel is a prime spot to sit back and be inspired by mother nature. The ‘Inspired by Yellowstone’ artist series at the Mammoth Hotel this summer features the talented artists Paul and Patricia Gates and DG House. from photographers to authors to painters.  Stop by the Mammoth Hotel Gift Shop to learn more about these incredible artists, their inspirations, and their love for Yellowstone.

World class trout fishing on the Yellowstone River drew Paul and Patricia Gates to Livingston Montana. During many trout fishing trips, they discovered beautiful pieces of Petrified Wood, Montana Agate and Jasper in the gravel beds of the river. After retiring from more than twenty years of instrumental music teaching, they turned their passion for these local treasures into “Yellowstone Agate Jewelry.” Paul and Patricia cut, carve, polish and hand craft Montana Agate and other local stones into exquisite, one of a kind pieces of jewelry.

When not making jewelry, Pat and Paul continue their musical careers by performing with the Bozeman, Billings and Helena Symphonies. Patricia performs on viola and flute. Paul performs on bassoon, contrabassoon and various saxophones.

Her Story and Inspirations…

Contemporary Native American Artist DG House of Bozeman, MT has had her work exhibited in the finest art museums including the Yellowstone Art Museum and the CM Russell Museum in Montana as well the Heard Museum in Phoenix, AZ, and the Eiteljorg Museum of Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis, IN. Her work is in permanent collections worldwide including rock stars Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney, Michael McDonald, and the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC.

When asked about Yellowstone’s inspiration on her and her work, DG says, “Be careful, it can change you. Yellowstone completely inspires everything I do, including moving halfway across the country to be there.”  It inspired her choice of career, first becoming a photographer and then a painter.

As DG explains it, Yellowstone is, “The essence of everything I do. Every painting I create is based on a story, a real story that happened in Yellowstone Park at some point.”

DG wants her work to, “give voice to the people and wildlife of Yellowstone that don’t have a voice in this culture” and “remind the viewer of what they felt when they were in the park.”
