Leroy Strand Collection

Oswald Leroy Strand (1919-2016) made his way from Iowa to Geyser, Montana. He was a rancher, an honored U.S. Army veteran, art collector and a generous supporter of both the Geyser public schools and the C.M. Russell Museum. At the C.M. Russell Museum, the Leroy Strand Collection is on display consisting of 376 objects, 280 sculptures, and 96 paintings & drawings. Within the Leroy Strand Collection, there is a combination of pieces from different artists. The Leroy Strand Collection is proud to feature a variety of sculpture works from local accomplished artists, Ken Mayernik and Jay Contway as well as other regional artists. The Leroy Strand Collection reflects his love of Montana landscapes, wildlife, rodeos and the cowboy way of life.

The Leroy Strand Collection will not be on display during the art auction.
