We almost forgot to update you on our last Baby Mountain concert event, in which we raised $162 for the Wounded Warrior Project. Quite a show indeed, we told you, and told you again for good measure, this wasn’t a show to be missed, honestly, such an incredible night for sure!

The BrickHouse Community Arts Center
In 2009, the Washington Pavilion Visual Arts Center in Sioux Falls hosted ‘Journey Women’, an exhibition which featured twelve art dolls that were the collaborative creation of twelve female artists, many of which shared roots in the Madison community.
Their journey continued with ‘Journey Women II: Shrine • Altar • Box’. For that exhibition, thirteen female artists came together, each one creating a shrine, altar, or box that was rotated among them over the course of more than one year. Each artist established her shrine’s intent and as the pieces were passed from artist to artist each responded and developed it with her own set of insights. A journal accompanied each work to record the progression of the piece as well as the thoughts of the artists. Currently, these artists are working on ‘Journey Women III’, which will debut in 2014.
The Madison Area Arts Council is thrilled to welcome home these ‘Journey Women’ including Ginny Freitag, Lisa Shoemaker, Jill Frederick, Eve Fisher, Donna Hazelwood, Winnie Giles, Connie Herring, and Angela Behrends to The BrickHouse Community Arts Center this May. We’ll be showing select pieces from both showings, and the artists will be on hand to discuss their thoughts and process behind these works.
This showing is for one-night only, refreshments will be served, and is free and open to the public. The BrickHouse Community Arts Center is located at 106 SE 2nd Street in downtown Madison.
‘Burlap Wolf King’ welcomed for a hometown record release party.
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28th, 7pm, doors open at 6:30pm.
Join us as we welcome Madison native singer songwriter Thomas Hentges, aka ‘Burlap Wolf King’ back to The BrickHouse this February for the hometown release of his newest 5 track effort, ‘EP’.
In a twist, the Madison Area Arts Council is donating $2 for each album sold that night to the Madison High School Music Department, and we’re asking all of our guests to donate as well, as we raise funds together for a great benefit – to promote the next great class of Madison musicians.
The event is free and open to the public, donations accepted, and refreshments are always provided. The BrickHouse is located in Downtown Madison, at 106 SE 2nd Street.
