About Us

Welcome. Whether you visit Altitude in person or come to our website, that’s how we want you to feel. For over 16 years, we have been seeking out artists who create unique, beautiful, and attainable work. We believe everyone should have art in their lives, and we pride ourselves on helping our customers find the perfect piece for their taste and budget.

Altitude’s founder, Amy Kirkland, grew up in an artistic, musical, and outdoorsy family in the Pacific Northwest. They spent their vacations camping, backpacking, and running rivers from Idaho to Alaska. After college, Amy traveled across the mountain west, hiking, kayaking, and representing her father’s nature photography at art fairs and festivals. In 2005, inspired by the incredible artists she met along the way, she decided to open a gallery of her own in the Rocky Mountains she now called home. Amy found a nine-foot wide jewel box of a space in a historic building on Bozeman’s Main Street, and created a bright, cozy gallery with a focus on innovative art and incredible customer service. It has since become a Bozeman institution. When she is not busy working with artists and customers, you can find Amy at the local ski hill or out on a raft with her husband and their dog, Ruby.






Altitude Gives Back

Making it through 2020 gave us a lot to be grateful for. We decided to initiate a monthly give-back day as a way to say thank you to our community. One day a month, the Altitude Gallery staff volunteers our time at a local non-profit and donates 50% of our profits from that day's sales to the chosen organization. Here's what we have coming up:
