Steamboat Springs Arts Council Co-Directors Kim Keith and Mical Hutson

o one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it. —H.E. Luccock

Art(S). At the Steamboat Springs Arts Council we have been loudly proclaiming Steamboat Springs as one of America’s most exciting arts destinations. The April 2014 Smithsonian Magazine echoed our sentiment when it listed Steamboat as the #4 Small Town to Visit in the U.S., due to its music scene. Citing the professional Steamboat Symphony Orchestra as an unusual and exciting element in a town this size, and with strong nods to Emerald City Opera and Strings Music Festival, the visual arts also received mention with our exhibits in the historic train depot listed as one of this town’s many charms. We, Mical Hutson and Kim Keith, accepted co-director positions of the Arts Council last winter. The uniqueness of the co-directorship speaks volumes about our vision of the arts in our vibrant town. Collaboration among all arts elevates the level of each art form to new heights. It’s fitting that we started our tenure with an exhibit curated by Gregory Block. Palettes: a Feast for the Senses, invited artists to engage all five senses simultaneously. Not only were visual arts involved, but

2 • Summer 2014

so were culinary arts, music, dance and the performing arts. One hundred happy people filled the Depot to engage in a multi-sensory artistic experience. The Steamboat Springs Arts Council encourages your participation in this vision of artistic exploration as the 2014-2015 arts season is under way. A full concert season is planned with our subsidiary nonprofit, the Steamboat Symphony Orchestra, with an emphasis on arts collaboration, including vocal art, film and dance. The Depot has ramped up its visual arts program with exhibits, Saturday Art Talks and workshops by the exhibitors every month. Writers, dancers and performers gather every week in the Depot to hone their crafts, and we continuously market our 30 affiliate organizations and reach out to them to collaborate on projects. We invite you to become a part of our active, nationally recognized arts community. You might be surprised how much you have to offer. You might even be more surprised by how much the arts have to offer you. Teamwork . . . It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.— Andrew Carnegie Mical Hutson and Kim Keith, Co-Directors Steamboat Springs Arts Council

he first time fused-glass artist Jennifer Baker showed “Feeding Frenzy,” the image that appears on the cover of this edition of the Yampa Valley Art & Gallery Guide, a woman exclaimed that it was “joyous.” The piece, which depicts hummingbirds feeding among wildflowers, was inspired by aviary activity in her own backyard. “Hummingbirds go crazy at our house – we have lots of feeders,” she says. Baker embarked on a floral theme in her artwork last summer, then picked it up again in the dead of winter, “when I needed color,” she says.

vanilla hues make up the palette for “Feeding Frenzy,” a true celebration of summer. Baker’s appreciation of the natural beauty of Northwest Colorado inspires much of her work. When she and her husband, a cardiologist at Yampa Valley Medical Center, moved from Cincinnati, Ohio, to Steamboat Springs, her love for the outdoors blossomed. “One thing the mountains did was make me slow down, stop and look around, be a lot more aware of everything around me. For me, it feels like you’re actually able to live your life,” she explains. Baker had previous worked in pottery, but she began experimenting with glass in her Steamboat home studio. “There’s a huge learning curve,” Baker says. “Every piece has


“Glass is not very forgiving; you can’t fix it with a brush stroke,” she says. “You really never fully know exactly what your piece is going to look like until you fire it,” Baker says. “For instance, when you mix vanilla with light blue, in glass you get brown, due to its chemical properties.”

Sometimes pieces consist of separate components, like the hummingbirds in “Feeding Frenzy,” which were individually fired and then placed within the larger piece. Baker’s fused-glass art has been described as impressionistic. “I like to do things that

Midsummer at Steamboat art museum: Birds in Art

I

n mid-July, Steamboat Art Museum is hosting a prestigious touring exhibit, “Birds in Art.” Presented by Wisconsin’s Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, this annual exhibition has been Woodson’s flagship since 1996. Artists from throughout the world submit work for consideration; 100 artists are invited to participate in the final show. Plump puffins, comical kingfishers, stiltlegged cranes and dainty nuthatches, a giraffe-friendly oxpecker, Dali-like African spoonbill and South American orangecheeked parrots: this exhibit is a journey around the world on the wings of birds, both exotic and common. From graphite to pyrography, from bronze to stainless steel, the artists’ choices of materials are

representative of the broad spectrum of their subject. The only exclusion is photography, which is not represented in “Birds in Art.” Audubon Society members and art-lovers are the obvious audience for this stunning exhibit, but you don’t need to be a birdwatcher to savor every work of art in this international display of natural beauty. In keeping with the theme of “Birds In Art,” SAM will host a special reception to kick off the Yampa Valley Crane Festival on Friday, Sept. 12. The Crane Festival, which continues through Monday, Sept. 15, is a collaborative effort led by the Colorado Crane Conservation Coalition, a nonprofit organization dedicated to

As a result, those buildings reflected history, geology, talent and Northwest Colorado style. The A-frame warming hut at the ski area base is one of Steamboat’s lost places.


time and growth. Although the buildings themselves may have been lost, they remain in stories passed down through generations, and in the photographic archives of the Tread of Pioneers Museum. When members of the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects were looking for a way to celebrate Architecture Month last April, they began talking about those lost, but not forgotten, structures. The result is “Lost Steamboat,” a collection of 12 images of now-gone historic buildings. The Tread of Pioneers, Historic Routt County and the city’s preservation committee teamed up with Colorado West AIA to present the exhibit. PhotoGraphicsArt printed and mounted the images, and KSA helped to sponsor the collection. “It was a great, almost spontaneous

collaboration,” recalls AIA member Adam Wright of KSA. From the wealth of material at the museum, the group narrowed the list down to a dozen buildings. Location, recognizable artifacts and compelling images were criteria. Arianthé Stettner of Historic Routt County wrote short, defining paragraphs for each of the buildings. “Lost Steamboat” is on display through Monday, Dec. 1, at the Tread of Pioneers Museum. “We hope that this exhibit will travel to other locations after it’s on display at the museum,” says director Candice Bannister.

Perry mansfield theater director: Emily Tarquin

t

he name Emily Tarquin is a familiar one at Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School. Now entering her 12th year at the camp, Tarquin most recently has been the producer of the school’s New Works Festival. She returns this summer in her new role as director of theater.

Jennifer M. Koskinsen

Besides being a faculty member at the Strawberry Park camp and school, Tarquin is the artistic associate of the Denver Center Theatre Company and curator of Off-Center, DCTC’s theatrical lab space dedicated to attracting the next generation of artists and audiences. She also manages the Colorado New Play Summit and is involved in casting the main-stage season with a focus in local and youth casting.

Emily Tarquin is the new art director at Perry Mansfield.

Tarquin graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design with a bachelor of fine arts degree in media and performing arts. She first came to Steamboat Springs as

an intern at the camp 12 years ago. In addition to her new responsibilities, she continues to produce the New Works Festival. “She knows the theater world, both behind and in front of the curtain,” says Joan Lazarus, Perry-Mansfield’s executive director. “We’ve created a hybrid position for her. She can teach, help put the faculty together, and continue with the New Works Festival, and that will help to overlap the programs even more.”

productions that Perry-Mansfield campers and faculty produce, but also in the creative process that goes into developing them. Under their leadership, students will take fewer technique classes, thereby allowing more time to create. There will be at least one class in which all the campers come together, and every camper will have a chance to work closely with at least one faculty member.

Because she has worked with the camp for so many years in so many positions, from camper and counselor to intern and producer, “Emily really knows what we can and do well,” Lazarus says.

“It’s amazing that we have a chance to have that kind of synergy,” Lazarus says. “What kids remember after they leave PerryMansfield is the faculty. They also remember what it felt like to watch their friends succeed or surprise them – Perry-Mansfield has the opportunity to be that for kids.”

of Dance. When Lazarus was starting her own professional career, Davis was influential. “She was the leading dancer with Bella (the Bella Lewitzky Dance Company). The things she told me became a part of my own creative process, and the way she danced inspired me to the point that I still talk about it,” Lazarus recalls.

here do you find a person with the unique combination of talent and experience to teach aspiring young artists the skills they will need to survive and thrive in the world of professional dance? And to teach those skills in the rustic environment of PerryMansfield Performing Arts School & Camp – without being distracted by the stunning beauty of the camp’s surroundings? When the position of dance director became available at the camp, “I looked back and thought of the person who most influenced me in my own career,” says Joan Lazarus, executive director of Perry-Mansfield. And so she reconnected with Lynda Davis, professor emeritus of Florida State University School 14 • Summer 2014

Lazarus quickly learned that Davis was, indeed, interested in the position as director of dance for Perry-Mansfield – in fact, she was a former camper herself. “Lynda is very connected to the professional dance world on the East Coast but has spent much of her career in California,” Lazarus says. “She’s also interested in college dance festivals and high school programs. She’s committed to dance education and she’s a spectacular teacher.”

Davis served as artistic director and choreographer for a London company and has conducted residencies in the United States and abroad. Her current work is focused on exploring the arts in healthcare, social justice and communities. These projects involve performances, choreography and teaching in tranditional and non-traditional spaces. At Perry-Mansfield, Davis works closely with Emily Tarquin, director of theater. “They’re both spontaneous, creative and collaborative,” Lazarus says. Davis and Tarquin coordinating their programs so that students gain experience across disciplines. “It was Charlotte and Portia’s dream to nurture that intersection of the arts,” Lazarus says. “That’s what’s different at Perry-Mansfield. You can study technique in the city. Here you are asked to stretch – maybe to write a play or sing a song, to see who you are and to find yourself as an artist.” For more information, visit www.perry-mansfield.org.

Welcome

to the Steamboat All Arts Festival

In the heart of the West, along the banks of the wild and free-flowing Yampa River, a thriving, creative community is blooming with cultural wonder. The arts flourish up here, where symphonic sounds fill the mountain air, culinary delights ignite the taste buds and visual creations burst with color and originality. Steamboat Springs is unparalleled in its natural beauty, with lush green valley landscapes, towering waterfalls and mountainous peaks reaching toward the Colorado bluebird sky. It’s no wonder that a host of talented artists and creative minds call Steamboat home. We invite you to join this truly collaborative arts community in exploring the backbone of our community – the arts.

Performing Arts School & Camp, and world-class year-round music series - Strings Music Festival. Strings brings top-tier classical musicians from around the country to play in the stunning Strings Music Pavilion, along with contemporary rock and country artists, plus free outdoor concerts in the Yampa River Botanic Park. The Strings Music Pavilion is home to many performances, but as the renovation of the historic downtown Chief Theater continues, a new, intimate downtown venue is born.

This guide will take you on a journey through the vast network of artists, galleries, events and stories that comprise the fabric of Steamboat’s creative community.

All of these venues, artists, events and series culminate in August with the annual All Arts Festival, taking place Friday, Aug. 8-Sunday, Aug. 17. A collaborative celebration of the arts – from culinary to visual – permeates the mountain air and intoxicates the senses. And the new Art Steamboat fine art competition elevates the quality and experience of the festival to new heights.

The level of visual art in Steamboat is astonishing for a town this size. From Western oil paintings to contemporary abstractions; by artists both based here in the valley and in major metropolitan creative districts, all have works on display at the popular First Friday Artwalk each month.

The organic growth of Steamboat’s cultural facets continues to blossom, while notables outside of the pristine Yampa Valley begin to take notice. After all, it was the arts and music of the Yampa Valley that earned Steamboat Springs a place on Smithsonian Magazine’s 2014 list of “America’s Best Small Towns.”

Less permanent but equally as striking are the performing arts, which abound in the Yampa Valley. No other small mountain town boasts its own opera company, symphony orchestra, the 101-year-old Perry-Mansfield

We heartily invite you to become a part of the ever-evolving landscape of our arts community, deeply rooted in our rich cultural heritage with our eyes on the horizon of the future. www.SteamboatAllArtsFestival.com

Art Steamboat New in 2014 Friday, Aug. 8-Sunday, Aug. 17 Art Steamboat is making its premiere appearance at the 2014 Steamboat All Arts Festival. This juried art competition and sale showcases the spectacular and diverse artwork of finalists from the Western states region. Artists from Utah, New Mexico, Arizona and Wyoming, as well as Colorado, are invited to enter the competition, featuring a $10,000 first prize.

Mangelsen Images of Nature 730 Lincoln Ave. www.artsteamboat.com 970-879-0880 “The vision for this is that we’ll be bringing some really good art into the community at the same time we’re bringing people into our very fine galleries,” says Sandra Sherrod, one of the founders of Art Steamboat. “I have this huge vision for it,” she says. “It’s going to be really, really fabulous.” The inspiration for Art Steamboat came from the Hunting Art Prize, an established art contest in Texas, sponsored by the oil services company Hunting PLC, which offers a $50,000 first prize. That contest has been going on for long enough that its organizers have been able to track the difference this generous grant makes in artists’ lives. Betse Grassby, one of the organizers of Art Steamboat, is hoping the $10,000 prize will have a similar effect.

Corey Kopischke Photography

“It’s very exciting, not only for the artists, but for art buyers as well,” Grassby says. “It will help put Steamboat on the map as an art destination.”

Galleries in Steamboat Springs will showcase the contestants’ pieces from Friday, Aug. 1, through Thursday, Aug. 17, during the Steamboat All Arts Festival. On closing weekend, all of the finalists’ entries will be gathered in a single venue for the awards ceremony.

But look closely at this piece (page 15), and you may see the profile of a woman. Her face is as much a part of the finished artwork as its artist, Sandra Sherrod, is of Steamboat Springs’ art scene.

The selection of “Spirit Canyon” for the All Arts Festival is only the latest manifestation of Sherrod’s determination to create a vibrant arts community in her hometown. Sherrod was instrumental in the development of the newest edition to the festival: Art Steamboat.

Originally titled “Spirit Canyon,” Sherrod has since nicknamed this acrylic on canvas “The Face,” having not realized until she completed the piece that the river through its center forms the silhouette of a woman’s face, hair streaming behind her. “Spirit Canyon” is one in a series of paintings Sherrod created after a trip through the Grand Canyon. “I was so caught up in the

She and Linda Laughlin, owner of the Center for Visual Arts, co-founded Steamboat’s First Friday Artwalk. “My goal is to bring awareness that we are an art community,” Sherrod says. The Steamboat All Arts Festival certainly proves that.

Time: The reign of Henry IV 1399 to 1413 Place: Windsor, England The story revolves around the thwarted, sometimes farcical, efforts of the fat knight, Sir John Falstaff, to seduce two married women for mercenary reasons. Act 1 A room at the Garter Inn Falstaff and his servants, Bardolfo and Pistola, are drinking at the inn. Dr Caius bursts in and accuses Falstaff of burgling his house and Bardolfo of picking his pocket. He is ejected. Falstaff hands a letter to each 24 • Summer 2014

of his servants for delivery to Alice Ford and Meg Page, two wealthy married women. In these two identical letters, Falstaff professes his love for each of the women, although it is access to their husbands’ money that he chiefly covets. Bardolfo and Pistola refuse Falstaff ’s request, claiming that honor prevents them from obeying him. Falstaff dispatches his page, Robin, to deliver the letters. Falstaff delivers a tirade to his rebellious servants, telling them that honor is a mere word and is of no practical value. Ford’s garden Alice and Meg compare Falstaff ’s letters, see that they are identical and, together


Act 2 A room at the Garter Inn Falstaff is alone at the inn. Bardolfo and Pistola, now in the pay of Ford, enter and pretend to beg for forgiveness. Mistress Quickly delivers an invitation to go to Alice Ford’s house that afternoon between the hours of two and three. She also delivers an answer from Meg Page and assures Falstaff that neither is aware of the other’s invitation. Falstaff celebrates his potential success. Ford is now introduced, masquerading as “Signor Fontana,” supposedly an admirer of Alice; he offers money to the fat knight to seduce her. Falstaff is puzzled at the request, and “Fontana” explains that if Alice succumbs to Falstaff, it will then be

with Mistress Quickly and Nannetta Ford, resolve to punish Falstaff. Meanwhile, Bardolfo and Pistola have warned Ford of the letters. All three are thirsty for revenge, and are supported by Dr. Caius and Fenton, a young gentleman. To Ford’s disapproval, Fenton is in love with Nannetta. The young lovers find a moment alone, but they are interrupted by the return of Alice, Meg and Mistress Quickly. The act ends with an ensemble planning revenge on Falstaff.

easier for Fontana to overcome her virtuous scruples. Falstaff agrees with pleasure and reveals that he already has a rendezvous arranged with Alice for two o’clock – the hour when Ford is always absent from home. Falstaff goes off to change into in his best clothes; Ford is consumed with jealousy. When Falstaff returns in his finery, they leave together with elaborate displays of mutual courtesy. A room in Ford’s house

The three women are in high spirits, but Alice notices that Nannetta is not. This is because Ford plans to marry her to Dr. Caius, a man old enough to be her grandfather; the women reassure her that they will prevent it. Mistress Quickly announces Falstaff ’s arrival and Mistress Ford has a large hamper and a screen placed in readiness. Falstaff ’s attempts to seduce Alice with tales of his past glory are cut short, as Mistress Quickly reports the impending arrival of Ford with a retinue of Yampa Valley Arts & Gallery Guide • 25
