Bellman Brown Bag: Folk Art – A Mirror of Culture with Jo Powell

What is the Bellman?

The Bellman Brown Bag series is a humanities program designed to explore ideas, history, literature, art, and culture.  Programs are presented on the second Wednesday of each month, noon to 1:00 p.m.  Designed to begin and end within each lunch hour, patrons are invited to bring their lunch, if desired, or simply enjoy an hour of learning and entertainment.

This month’s Bellman takes place on Wednesday, February 13 and is a part of the NEA Big Read. Dr. Jo Powell will be giving a presentation on International Folk Art, and focusing on how art can not only give us an insight to different cultures, but also bridge the gap between them. Pulling from her experience of working overseas for 26 years, she will be sharing her encounters with folk art from around the world, and will discuss the themes, function, and purpose of folk art within a culture– past and present. Dr. Jo Powell will also discuss topics from her new book on international folk art.Dr. Jo Powell currently has a collection of folk art materials from around the globe, which she is hoping to donate to the City of Spearfish to create a Folk Art Museum for the community.

Auditions – Community Theater: Curious Savage

We have a new theater production coming up and we want YOU to audition!

Auditions will be open February 12 and February 13 at 6:30PM. Come to the Matthews Opera House and try out your acting abilities for a chance to be part of this fun show. 

Plot Synopsis 

“The Curious Savage” is the story of an elderly widow named Mrs. Savage, whose husband has left her $10 million dollars. She intends to give the entire fortune away to people who wish to pursue their “foolish dreams,” but her stepchildren strongly object.

To prevent her from doing away with their family’s wealth and ruining their legacy, they have her committed to a sanatorium called The Cloisters, and it is among the gentle residents there that she finds her true family. “

The Curious Savage” is a warm comedy that compares the kindness and loyalty of psychiatric patients with the greed and hostility of so-called “normal people.” It opened in New York on Broadway in 1950 and played 31 performances with star Lillian Gish in the titular role.

“For she had eyes and chose me.” — William Shakespeare

Othello taunts Desdemona.

 

This classic tale of identity, bigotry, and deceit is examined with contemporary clarity, combining Shakespeare’s language with modern clothing to transform the drama into a powerful story for America today.

Othello is a celebrated general returning home from the wars, but his dark skin and foreign origin inspire hatred from several people, especially the man he trusts most: Lago. As Lago twists Othello’s love for his wife Desdemona, everyone becomes pawns in Iago’s devious plots.

Directed by Jason King Jones
