Lone Peak by Montana artist Claire Kleese Bozeman artist Claire Kleese's lovely detailed drawings are hanging in the main room of the cafe. They are best viewed close up, so get friendly with the people seated along the wall where her art hangs and take a look for yourself next time you're in. On display are reproductions of Claire's original pen and ink drawings with pops of color, depicting mountain ranges around our region. The Bridger Range, Emigrant Peak, Lone Peak and others are drawn in an almost topographical style with delicate lines tracing out the changes in terrain. Emigrant Peak by Montana Artist Claire Kleese When she's not drawing, Claire plays in a band, and works as a graphic designer. Montana born and raised, Claire also enjoys playing music, skiing, trail running, & fly fishing, and her art reflects those loves. Her unframed prints are available for sale at the Nova Cafe, just ask any server. All the art we display is curated by tart, and you can view and purchase Claire's work on tart's website as well.
