HDLAC To Sponsor Applefest

Posted by A-Ryan on Thursday, September 03, 2009 (20:31:25)

The Historic Deadwood Lead Arts Council (HDLAC) will be sponsoring an AppleFest during Lead's Flavor of Lead Celebration on Saturday, September 26th. The AppleFest is a way to celebrate the fall season and the local apple harvest. HDLAC invites residents to make their favorite dish using locally grown apples and to share it with the community during the celebration. The creations can be anything apple including pies, turnups, kuchen, bread, muffins, etc. and participants are encouraged to use their family recipes. The entries will be available for the general public to taste from 2 to 5 pm at the Chamber tent which will be located in the Lynn's DakotaMart parking lot during the Flavor of Lead. A People's Choice contest will be held and awards will be given to the top three entries.

In addition to the food items, HDLAC will also sponsor an apple doll contest. Apple dolls are folkart items with faces carved into apples and then dried. Because each doll dries different, no two dolls are alike and the faces keep changing. A padded wire frame is added and clothing is made and a wonderful doll is created. Apple dolls were originally made by early settlers when resources were limited.

HDLAC Director, Karen Everett, remembers making apple dolls while attending Lead's Central Elementary School. "Anyone who grew up in Lead in the 60's should remember making an apple doll in Mrs. Bekken's art class, it was the best part of being a fifth grader." Everett stated the apple dolls were displayed all over town. "I remember being thrilled when my doll was in the bakery window, I saved it for years, it was something I cherished." "It would be great to return that tradition," said Everett. The dolls will also be on display at the Chamber tent during the celebration with a A People Choice contest held and awards given to the top three entries. Instructions on how to make an apple doll can be found on the internet.

If you have an apple tree and apples to share, give HDLAC a call. HDLAC would like to provide locally grown apples for participants who would like to create an entry, but have no access to locally grown apples. Both food and doll entries will be due by 1 p.m. at the Chamber tent on September 26th. For more information, please contact HDLAC at 584-1461.

Artist Reception For Nesheim And Rawlings

Posted by SACuser on Thursday, August 27, 2009 (22:31:13)

The Spearfish Arts Center is pleased to announce an artist reception featuring Elissa Nesheim and Jerry Rawlings on Friday, September 4th from 5 to 7 p.m. There is no cost to attend and the community is invited to talk to the artists and view their work.

Elissa Nesheim works with watercolor on canvas. “My paintings are an interpretation of the surrounding landscape. They are an invitation to the viewer to take a second look at the world outside the windows we look through everyday. I use water-media to attain the layers of color I see in the hills, mountains, prairies and sky. My ultimate goal is to lessen the distance between the landscape and the viewer through my paintings.”

Jerry Rawlings is a professor of fine art photography at Black Hills State University. “Often photography is not seen as fine art. I wanted to do more than simply do(edited)ent a slice of time. I wanted to create photographs that reminded me of an art form for which I have the utmost respect, yet cannot compete with: painting. Photographs that would make an attempt to bridge the span between the two mediums. Hopefully to draw the viewer to look deeper within each image, just as a fine painting does”, says Rawlings. Rawlings received a BA in Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in 1985. He had a commercial photography studio in Denver, Colorado from 1985 - 2000. Rawlings currently lives in Spearfish.

"The Deadwood Songbook" Concert

Posted by SACuser on Thursday, August 27, 2009 (22:22:03)

The BHSU Visual Arts Department in partnership with the Spearfish Arts Center is hosting “The Deadwood Songbook” concert featuring Hank Harris with Kenny Putnam and Ricky Jacobsen at the Matthews Opera House September 25, 2009 at 7 p.m.

There will be a social hour from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. with a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres. There will also be a silent art auction with approximately 20 artworks from both BHSU Visual Arts Department and the Spearfish Arts Center Gallery. The proceeds will be divided between the BHSU Art Student Scholarships and the Spearfish Arts Center for preservation of its programs and the Matthews Opera House.

From the dance halls and concert halls of 1880 Deadwood comes the music of an era. Between 1876, when Deadwood began as a raucous mining camp, and 1900 when the town had evolved into a bastion of respectability, attending a musical performance was a major social activity.

Hank Harris, Kenny Putnam and Ricky Jacobsen revive classic American songs like Dixie, John Henry, Yankee Doodle, Cielito Lindo and The Dreary Black Hills. The songs are rendered faithfully on traditional instruments of the day. Harris tells stories throughout the evening about each of the selections.

Tickets for the concert are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. They can be purchased at The Spearfish Arts Center Gallery. For more information call 642-7973.

Chapter L P.E.O. is hosting their second annual garden walk in Lead, Sunday, July 19th from 1:00-4:00 pm. The price of the garden tour is $5.00 per person and tickets can be purchased at any of the gardens. Attendees can start at any of the five locations on the tour. Maps will be available at each place to direct tour goers to the others.

Bottled water will be available to purchase for $1.00. Proceeds benefit women’s educations and local charities.

The five gardens on the tour include:

Gardening in Lead offers a unique set of challenges which include a short growing season, hillsides, and wildlife that enjoy eating the pretty flowers as much as we enjoy looking at them. Each garden offers the owner’s personal touch. In addition to seeing some special lovely gardens, this garden walk offers an opportunity to learn about what kinds of plants and shrubs flourish in the hills as well as how to maintain them. You may even get ideas for your own special place.

As a courtesy to the homeowners, attendees are requested to use public restrooms at the city park, leave pets at home, and if you bring children, please help them observe garden courtesies and safety precautions.
