ArtCentral FILM FESTIVAL: “Waste Land”

 

ArtCentral has partnered with The Northern Hills Rotary Club to create a film series that will benefit the community. Through this series, we use art as a tool – films in this case – to engage our community on specific topics that are relevant to both partnering organizations. 

Following each film, the co-hosting organization will help facilitate a discussion about ideas presented in the film. Co-hosts for films are organizations in our community and will help us talk about how these issues relate to the Spearfish community. The co-hosts will also actively promote each film to their organization to increase awareness of the film series offerings.

ADMISSION

All films are FREE! General Admission.

ART HAPPY HOUR: Fiber Tiles

Fiber Tiles

During this Tuesday Art Happy Hour, Elizabeth Mattson provides instruction on the making of fiber tiles. 

Fiber tiles are an outstanding way to use found materials to make something visually interesting and personal. The basic materials for fiber tiles can be easily found in your home; whether that’s string, fabric, beads, buttons, yarn, or twine. They can be made at any skill level and can be as simple or as complicated as you desire. Fiber tiles can also be made from very meaningful pieces to create a memorial piece for a loved one or commemorate a special day.

This is a FREE event presented by ArtCentral SpearfishRecommended for ages 15 and up. Younger children may attend but must be accompanied by an adult. *Some of these events will have wine and beer for sale. IDs will be checked. 

The workshop takes place in the ArtCentral RE:create makerspace in The Matthews’ art gallery.

Sign-up is preferred

Even though the workshop is free, sign-up would be preferred in order for the instructor to be prepared with the correct amount of materials and supplies. Either call the art gallery at 605.642.7973 ext.0 — OR email [email protected] to add your name to the class list. If emailing, be sure to provide a phone number. 

About Elizabeth (Lizzie) Mattson

Elizabeth (Lizzie) Mattson was raised in Buffalo, WY, where she was taught fiber crafts such as embroidery, quilting, garment making, and crochet. She currently resides in Spearfish, SD.

Sustainability is part of Elizabeth’s process as she repurposes materials such as fabric trimmings, dryer sheets, strips of canvas, and doilies. She is drawn to neutral color schemes, which allow her to showcase the unique textures and patterns found in her materials. Elizabeth hopes to present a unique perspective to the lost and forgotten elements of this beautifully textured craft.
