Welcome To Steamboat Springs! HOPE YOU’RE HERE ON A FIRST FRIDAY of the month because, if so, you are in for a real treat. Our downtown galleries and other businesses collaborated years ago to develop the First Friday Art Walk. Although it is something of a mystery as to who actually began the art walk; certain people absolutely deserve recognition.
Stop in to the Artists Gallery on Lincoln Avenue, and say hello to its founder, Sandra Sherrod, who had a whole lot to do with the creation of our First Friday. Next visit the Center for Visual Arts, where Linda Laughlin works to keep this popular event alive each month. Finally, stop by the historic Depot, where the Arts Council resides. The Arts Council’s former director, Nancy Kramer, is a third component to the success of our First Friday. This letter may be my favorite task as the executive director of the Arts Council. Like most of us living in Steamboat, I absolutely love this place, and I love sharing it with our visitors. Therefore, the opportunity to write a welcome letter is absolutely fabulous for me. Steamboat is a wonderful combination of a world-class resort and a true Western ranching community. Don’t be surprised

to see a couple cowboys walking down Lincoln Avenue with spurs attached to their boots. This combination of folks is what creates the warm, friendly atmosphere of Steamboat. This guide provides insight into our art community, as well as being a great guide for the First Friday Art Walk. While you’re here, I hope you’ll take in the long views from our town, either out west to the Sleeping Giant, or south toward the Flat Tops. These sweeping, distant valley views inspire the emotions of locals and visitors alike. And, it’s this emotion that reminds all of us how important art is to our communities. Luckily for us in Steamboat, a number of passionate and enthusiastic artists have chosen this valley as their home. Our downtown is home to an art museum, galleries exhibiting the works of local, regional and national artists, and restaurants and retailers displaying local artwork. The Arts Council is located in the 100-plus-year old train depot at the west end of town, and we maintain two exhibition spaces, one dedicated to our artist members, and the other under the supervision of our artistic director. Thank you for coming to visit us this winter. I sincerely hope you have a wonderful vacation here in Steamboat, and I strongly encourage you to visit us in the summer and see how much our mountain town has to offer, including an escape from the heat! Cheers, Clark L. Davidson Executive Director Steamboat Springs Arts Council
PERRY-MANSFIELD performing arts school & camp
It was 1913. Founders Portia Mansfield and Charlotte Perry had a tenacious and innovative vision: that the practice of creativity, accelerated by a profound relationship with nature, forges the kind of people who will walk through life with insight and courage. And upon this vision, the enduring and inspiring foundation for Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School & Camp was laid in Steamboat Springs.

About the Cover: – snow drawings
RTIST SONJA HINRICHSEN works in an unusual medium. While others may choose oil or watercolor, Hinrichsen’s choice is temporal: snow. Her extraordinarily large canvases — Rabbit Ears Pass, the Carpenter Ranch and Lake Catamount, for instance — are ideally suited for her material. An environmental artist, Hinrichsen created the cover art for this edition of the Yampa Valley Arts & Gallery Guide in a large meadow on Rabbit Ears Pass. Volunteers helped her to complete the snow drawing, a series of spirals that extend from the highway into the forest. “I had five or six volunteers — very committed people, who worked relentlessly for hours. It was great fun,” she recalls. Hinrichsen’s work is ephemeral, captured for any length of time only via photography. Her ‘Snow Drawings,’ created in Steamboat Springs, Snowmass Village and other U.S. landscapes, went viral, appearing on numerous art, design and cultural websites, plus in magazines and over broadcast media, including NPR, MSNBC, the Discovery Channel and public TV Tokyo. Hinrichsen returns to Steamboat Springs, for her fourth visit this winter. “For my ‘Snow Drawings,’ it’s just a perfect

environment,” she says. While in the Yampa Valley, she is orchestrating a participatory project of a larger scale. Under Hinrichsen’s direction, community volunteers will cover the frozen Lake Catamount with a snow drawing. (see Calendar of Events, p. 25, for more details). Since Hinrichsen’s last visit to Steamboat, she has been pursuing other forms of environmental art. She worked in Finland on a project about food properties of wild-growing plants as an alternative to cultivated, store-bought foods. She was also in Park City, Utah, where she worked on a project focusing on edible greens. “This project is sort of an exploration project and video project. I film everything I do with the wild plants, from picking/collecting to preparing foods with them,” she explains. Also since last year’s snow drawings, she collaborated with a theater/performance artist. “We explored the ancient native American cultures of the Southwest, including their lifestyles, mythologies and architecture. We visited a lot of the old Anasazi heritage sites in the Four Corners for this project, and also some Indian reservations, such as Hopi, Zuni, Acoma and some of the pueblo villages along the Rio Grande,” Hinrichsen says.

Patsy Krebs: Fugue Three suites of aquatint etchings
Patsy Krebs - “Untitled Red” (Photo Courtesy of Oehme Graphics) 6 • Winter 2012/13
IKE A ZEN GARDEN, Patsy Krebs’ art appears unmistakably simple but is profoundly layered. Nationally recognized for her minimalist paintings in watercolor and acrylic, the work she exhibits in Steamboat Springs this winter adds yet another layer to the process. The Steamboat Springs Art Council hosts an unprecedented solo exhibition of the San Francisco artist’s prints, created in collaboration with master printer Sue Oehme of Steamboat’s Oehme Graphics.
“A fugue is a form of music that is based on permutations, and a lot of what we did in the print-making process was about permutations. Sue made plates of my basic shapes and layered them,” Krebs explains.
“It’s very hard to make things look simple,” Sue says. “It requires a lot of layering, most of which we created from aquatints, using mirror-finish copper. It involved a long plate-cleaning process. We used stepetching so that the colors gradually got darker and darker.”
Photo Courtesy of Oehme Graphics
Krebs’ work is based on geometric forms, repeating patterns, each with a slight variation from the root form. She uses the term mathematical to describe the process, and in that sense, it parallels the creative process of a musical composer. When Krebs and Steamboat Springs Arts Council Artistic Director Park Myers discussed a name for the exhibit, they were both drawn to the musical term “fugue.”
“Though initially appearing rigid and quiet, Krebs’ prints develop a profound reverberation and mystical energy; the way in which complete silence can swell into a roar of tones and patterns just beyond the grasp of definitive explanation,” notes Myers.
Master printer Sue Oehme and artist Patsy Krebs analyze proofs of “Untitled Red.” Yampa Valley Arts & Gallery Guide • 7
Krebs visited Oehme Graphics for two weeks in June 2011, enthusiastic about returning after her initial collaboration with the print makers in 2008. “I’m a painter,” Krebs says. “I’m not used to collaborating, so it was really exciting to work with Sue and her spectacular colleagues. They would find technical solutions to my ideas using aquatint and copper. I’m used to working with paper-thin layers on panel. They are brilliant translators. They convey the spirit of your work and translate its vision.” The result of two weeks of collaboration was two suites, “Since Brass” (the title inspired by Shakespeare’s sonnet) and “Redwing” – like the flash of color from a redwing bird
in flight. Two large, vertical pieces, both untitled, complete the body of work. Patsy Krebs: Fugue opens at the Eleanor Bliss Center for the Arts at the Depot on Thursday, Feb. 7, with a reception from 6-8 p.m. The exhibit continues through Thursday, March 28. Arrangements are being made for a guest appearance by Steamboat Symphony Orchestra conductor/composer Ernest Richardson, who will speak on the parallels between Krebs’ work and the fugue form.

A Musical Tribute on an Olympic Scale
HE WORLDS OF MUSIC and sport intersect during the 100th anniversary of the Winter Carnival. One of the highlights of the week-long celebration will be a symphonic tribute to the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club on Sunday, Feb. 10, at 5:30 p.m. The Steamboat Symphony Orchestra will host the event, along with guest Olympians. The music will include — of course – American composer Aaron Copland’s “Suite From Billy the Kid.” Steamboat skiing ambassador Billy Kidd will be on stage, sharing Olympic stories.

One dramatic element of the evening will be a banda, a brass-based musical tradition whose roots combine Mexican music with the German polka. More than 60 musicians will be on the Strings Music Pavilion stage, including a significant horn section.
Ernest Richardson conducts the Steamboat Symphony Orchestra. 10 • Winter 2012/13
The Olympic Fanfare and Theme will be one of the featured pieces. Composed by John Williams for the 1984 Olympics, the music is especially familiar to Ski Town USA® audiences, who tend to be devotees of the Games. SSO conductor Ernest Richardson often includes Williams’ music in SSO performances, expressing admiration for his film scores and their suitability for orchestra.
“Superman” was modeled after the Pines’ fourth movement.
The second half of SSO’s winter concert features Ottorino Respighi’s “Pines of Rome,” in four movements. “Pines” calls for a large orchestra with a strong horn- and percussion presence. The music may seem familiar; selections from it can be heard in “Fantasia,” and Williams says his music for the Planet Krypton from the movie
Further collaborative efforts include a discussion led by Richardson regarding “Patsy Krebs: Fugue,” an art exhibit at the Depot in March, and an education concert slated for April 4, featuring community players and local music students.
The orchestra’s 2013 season is remarkable; some would say wondrous. On the verge of economic collapse late last summer, the organization merged with the Steamboat Springs Arts Council, infusing SSO with new collaborative possibilities like the Winter Carnival performance.

Red Carpet Premiere
Chief Executive Director Tamara Beland will head efforts to re-open the downtown theatre
T E A M B OAT S P R I N G S ’ “first talkie” became the talk of the town last fall when the nonprofit group Friends of the Chief purchased the historic downtown theater that had recently closed its doors.
Shortly after she moved to Steamboat last fall, she saw the word “FIN?,” on the marquee of the 87-year-old building, which had been operated by Carmike Cinemas until the end of summer. She recalls immediately envisioning the possibilities a historic theater might present to the community and tracked down Friends of the Chief to volunteer her help.
The organization plans to make minor modifications to the 1920s-era building, then open it for up to three years while it raises funds to transform the building into a cultural center of regional significance.
When she found out the group was in the process of hiring its first paid employee, “I jumped up and down. I felt like the universe brought me here,” she says. “The Chief is going to be a venue that’s available for community cultural events, live music of all genres, theater, comedy and improv. It’s going to be for people from 3 to 70 and up. It will be a place for the community to call home — for everyone, including tourists and locals,” Beland says.
In December, Friends hired Tamara Beland as executive director. The theater’s new “chief ” has a unique skill set, ranging from experience as a facilities and operations director at a Denver hospital to director of operations at the Austin (Texas) School of Music. An actress and singer, she has also worked on stage and behind the scenes.
12 • Winter 2012/13
In the short-term, Friends plans to operate the Chief with minor modifications as a fund-raising platform and community venue. But the real dream is to return the building to its former glory, preserving its historic integirty while converting it into a state-of-the-art cultural center. “We have a big project ahead of us,” Beland
The theater was most recently operated as a four-plex movie house. Facility work is needed before it reopens, including demolishing two theaters, merging the two remaining theaters, meeting safety requirements and installing new seating. While the theater operates on a community level after completing these improvements, Friends will be raising the estimated $3-4 million needed to implement Phase 2.

says. “For the next three years, we’re going to be operating a 200-seat venue. Then we jump to a completely different level, with a 475-seat-plus facility that’s able to draw national acts. Phase 1 and Phase 2 are very different.”
Tamara Beland Fundraising plans include pursuing grants and community funding, hosting special events, organizing pledge drives and soliciting memberships at various giving levels. For more information or to volunteer, visit www.chieftheater.org.
