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!

‘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.
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.
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.
Nashville-based Carolina Story along with artists Nancyjane Huehl and Chad Nelson set to join us.
We’re thrilled to announce that our next Double Header at The BrickHouse will be another memorable one, as we’re bringing 4 standout artists together for one amazing night, Thursday August 30th, 7-9pm.
We’re helping to bring Phil Baker to Madison this August 7th for National Night Out.
Phil Baker’s performance is provided through assistance from the Madison Police Department and the Madison Area Arts Council, with South Dakota Arts Council support, which is provided with funds from the State of South Dakota, through the Department of Tourism, and the National Endowment for the Arts. (Cool how those arts grants work for us!)
White Night kicks off at 10 am with Plein air artists (that’s probably you or could be you) and then trains, bbq, camping, and of course, live amazing fantastic face melting music starting at 8 pm, and did we mention the cupcakes for someone’s 48th birthday?
And just a reminder, Prairie Village is free and open to everyone, usually there’s a gate charge, but we’ve done away with that…so come on out…and embrace the night!
