We welcomed Thomas Hentges, Burlap Wolf King, last week for a ‘Hometown Record Release Party’ which benefited the Madison High School Music Program. Together, we raised $206 for the cause, which will be donated to the program in the coming weeks, check back for more on that!

And you thought cats lived longer than arts councils?
Well, we’re going forward into 2013 with another kick, with even more great programs and yes, great food too. But, we need your support now more than ever before, so that means we need to hear more, and yes, see more, from our local creative friends and supporters of the arts.
This January 12th, we’re sponsoring acclaimed watercolor artist Jennifer Stone for a one day class and group show at The BrickHouse, and this looks to be by far the best deal of the year for a chance to work alongside such a noted and respected artist as Jennifer. We’re trying something new by offering these one-day classes for the community, and yes, there’s a very small charge (you won’t find a better deal around for classes of this quality) but we hope to continue to offer these classes in the coming year, so if you support it, they’ll be way more to look forward to right outside your back door.
We’re also scheduling the usual mix of great events you’ve come to love, from small concerts, to Double Header art showings, and a variety of speakers and writers from our Chautauqua Series – we’ll be calling on a few past friends for a surprise or two this year.
We’re thankful for all the support this past year, and if you haven’t made it to one of our fine events, be sure to come on out this January 12th, we’d love to see all of you (and way more often too!)
Just don’t go asking about cats.
Watercolor class to be offered this year.
We’re thrilled to offer an extraordinary opportunity this January 12th at The BrickHouse Community Arts Center with the instructional offering of ‘Foundations of Watercolor’ with artist Jennifer Stone.
Jennifer Stone is an acclaimed artist from Watertown, South Dakota. She has been painting professionally for more than ten years, drawing inspiration from everyday beauty and experiences. Her style is unique and interesting, and as captivating as the artist herself.
Jennifer is an accomplished artist and educator who hosts and conducts workshops annually to promote the arts and artists. She is a multiple national award recipient who was most recently honored with inclusion of her painting, Procrastination, in the San Diego Watercolor Society International Exhibit.
Her philosophy is that “An artist needs to paint with intention,” she says. “But after a while, you just need to let your brush dance, and it becomes a painting that invites the viewer to be a participant, not just a spectator.” Her approach is the same when it comes to teaching.
During this class, you will receive an introduction to the fundamentals of basic watercolor principles and techniques that will add fun and interest to your piece all while learning from this highly accomplished and energetic instructor! Personal expression is an important component to this class, so be ready to explore your creativity while learning the foundations of watercolor painting.
As part of the class fee of $90 (plus tax), supplies for the day will be provided, and lunch will be provided as well. A public reception and art show featuring the artwork created that day, along with selections from Jennifer Stone, will be held from 6-8pm, at The BrickHouse.
Space is extremely limited for this exclusive opportunity, and spots must be reserved through email at: email@example.com
We know, we’re not been the best at the blogging, but to our well-reasoned defense, we share way too much on Facebook and Twitter, so that does the bulk of our news and such. Anyhow, we wanted to take a moment to catch you up on our last two great events at The BrickHouse, if you click the links, you’ll be able to see a full album of images, so take a moment and check that out.
Our September Double Header was another knockout, with Carly Rochelle, Angela Meyer, Matt Caffee, William Henderson, and the music of Phantom Balance.
In August, we featured the work of Nancyjane Huehl, Chad Nelson, and the music of Carolina Story, and yet again, another great night was had in downtown Madison.
This coming November 1st, from 7-9pm, we’re thrilled to present a special Double Header at The BrickHouse with our guests artists, Lisa Shoemaker, Derek Meier, and Brian Iverson.
Also joining us at The BrickHouse, Pat Boyd, Director of South Dakotans for the Arts and Michael Pangburn, Director of the South Dakota Arts Council, who will be visiting our community for the day, as we begin a community discussion and review on the future of us, the Madison Area Arts Council.
As always, Double Header events are open to the public, refreshments are served, there might even be some sweet music, and yes, come on out and support your local arts community.
We’re kind of been behind as of late with the blog postings, our apologies, but we’re still cranking out the best art content we can on Facebook and Twitter, so check that out for the latest.
We’re getting more than excited about our next Double Header with Carolina Story and artists Chad Nelson and Nancyjane Huehl.
So, we thought it would be fun to tease you with a few images from Nancyjane, so be sure to mark those calendars for Thursday, August 30th, 7-9pm at The BrickHouse.
