Call for Storytellers
This week, while your enjoying family stories and tall tales around the Thanksgiving dinner table, remember that STORYTELLER’S NIGHT is coming up at the Lewistown Art Center. Inspired by podcasts like “The Moth,” Storytelling Social Night takes place in December, beneath the twinkling holiday lights. We welcome anyone to come tell a story, share a memory, or read a poem that speaks to them. This is an opportunity for aspiring performers, cowboy poets, and local legends to sit around and “talk story.” Storytelling Night is Wednesday, December 19th, and costs $5 at the door. Start practicing!
Shift, Shift by Jennifer Combe
Join us on Friday, December 7th, for the opening reception of Jennifer Combe’s exhibition, “Shift, Shift” in the Margie Wilkins Gallery from 5 – 7 PM. Combe’s exhibition contains works of multiple medias, and investigates personal narrative, motherhood, and symbolic systems. Inspired by the role that “categorizing” plays in constructing context, Combe draws from abstraction, children’s drawings, and her experiences as mother to chart patterns, categories, and imagery.
Combe writes that “Shift, Shift explores the moving construction of identity encountered as I transitioned into motherhood at age 40. Some works are a response to the overwhelm of tasks related to working full time, mothering, and self-care. Others respond to infertility and IVF, while others are illustrative of the schematic process of language acquisition, responding to almost two decades in K-16 classrooms and then witnessing my daughter construct language and meaning.”
Affordable Art Holiday Show
The LAC is thrilled to announce our first ever Affordable Art Holiday Show, featuring the original works of Montana artists for under $150. This year, juror Linda Tullis, selected a group of two-dimensional works from Montana artists Wyna Woodford, Tobie Liedes, and Tonja Opperman. These gorgeous small works are both watercolor and pastel, and are sweet vignettes that would make a great gift for any Montanan in your life!
This show will only be on display until Christmas, and it’s first come, first serve. Hurry down to the corner of Fourth and Main between 10-5 Monday through Friday, or 10-4 on Saturdays.
