Come join us for our June Corks and Canvas!
Admission is $40 for non-members and $35 for members. Sign up online or stop by the museum store.
On any given Tuesday approximately 20 Helena area middle and high school
students can be found drawing, painting, writing, and talking in studios at the Holter Museum of Art. These teens participate in Art for Survival (A4S), an after-school program that provides a creative community for young people to engage with artists and writers to explore ways that art can help them navigate life. Join us to learn more about this program and the teens involved.
Corks & Canvas is date night, girls’ night, mom and daughter night, coworkers’ time to unwind from a busy work week, or just a fun night out. If you’ve been looking for a way to tap into your creativity but don’t know where to start, we can help! Your instructor will guide you step-by-step through recreating the night’s pre-selected painting. This is a fail-proof process in the company of friends and neighbors. You’ll be amazed at the artwork you’ve created by the end of the night!
What’s Happening to the Photographic Record?
Thursday, March 22nd
We are taking more photos than any other time in history, but fewer photos are being printed than ever before. What does this mean for future generations who have no shoebox of photos to go through or no photo album telling the story of the past? Does it matter? And what do we do with all these digital images anyway? Join in this lively discussion of the fate of the photographic record in the 21st Century. Whether you are a photographer or a casual phone “snapshooter”, a parent or a historian join us as we explore the future of saving our stories through images. This discussion will be led by Richard Buswell, Kurt Keller, and Zach Begler.
Discover the nostalgia for chemical processes, printing negatives, and the dull red glow that informed so much of what used to be photography. Join Kurt Keller as we revisit the Old Time Darkroom. See the process that photographer Richard Buswell uses to create his images exhibited in Close To Home and view prints made with various processes from the 1880's to modern day inkjet printers.
Join Loft Studio and the Holter Museum of Art for a yoga class in the current Holter exhibition, CAVE. This gentle, super stretchy, mindful class is suitable for all levels. An additional class will be held on December 9th. The cost is $12 per person. Please bring a yoga mat if possible.
