In collaboration with The Roxy Theater
IWFF 2019 Posters
Founded in 1977 at the University of Montana, International Wildlife Film Festival is the first and longest running event of its kind. In 2002, the festival purchased the historic Roxy Theater as its home. In 2013 The Roxy launched its year-round screening series and began extensive collaboration with the university, businesses and community, serving a diverse, all-ages population with broad programming. A unique historic venue with incredible resources, The Roxy houses three cinema screens with HD projection, 35 mm projection, state-of-the-art sound systems, two stages and amenities ideal for conferences, film festivals and educational events. IWFF embraces its home inside The Roxy Theater and as the heart of the Missoula community.
The International Wildlife Film Festival has been around for 42 years in Missoula. Each spring, the IWFF celebrates ethical wildlife and environmental filmmaking as well as emerging filmmakers. Frame of Mind has been proud to help participate and help with The Roxy’s International Wildlife Film Festival. After framing the promotional posters for the last 4 years, we thought it would be great to share these amazing works of art with Missoula. Check out this year’s 42 years of IWFF and Wild Walk posters, and take a stroll through past posters, made by Missoula artists from Monte Dolack to Hailey Faust to Theo Ellsworth.

Saucers over the Big Stack:
This piece represents Monte's diverse use of mediums, as he uses the gouache both in the style of a watercolor and as a thicker medium, with a consistency closer to that of an acrylic paint. Self Portrait Monte Dolack: 1984 24" x 20" Gouache on Paper $1,900.00
Frame of Mind is pleased to announce the addition of our gallery space to the store. The gallery space is the new home for Monte Dolack and Mary Beth Percival's art work, where we can display the full collection of their posters, fine art prints, notecards, post cards, and lithographs available in stock at our location.
Monte Dolack is a staple in the world of Montana artwork. His artwork captures the true magic and beauty that is found all around us in Montana. A native of Great Falls, Monte Dolack grew up surrounded by the same sweeping vistas and big sky that inspired Charlie Russell. His love of Montana and passion for the West’s diverse landscapes and wildlife are evident in the images he creates and the commissions he undertakes.
Visit us today to see the artist’s collected works and view a rotating gallery of beautifully framed pieces by both Monte Dolack and Mary Beth Percival.
