"Rust, Fire, Weather: The Master's Mediums"  Sculpture and Photography by Buck Steele

"Rust, Fire, Weather: The Master's Mediums" Sculpture and Photography by Buck Steele

 

When you ask an artist what their medium is you will usually hear something like watercolor, oil, or ceramic.  Rust is not what you would expect an artist to list as their preferred medium, but Buck Steele is not your average artist.  He is an award winning photographer who has been exploring the beauty of rust in macro shots for years and has developed a deep fascination with it.  Buck has learned how to produce, control, and manipulate rust; describing it as similar to watercolor in that it still has a mind of its own. 

In this exhibit, Buck has focused on the rusted, melted, and charred remains of the recent fires at Helena and other places.  Fire and weather are the artists, and Buck has a keen eye for finding and celebrating the textures and patinas they create.  From sculpture to photography, Buck’s desire is that his work will inspire viewers to discover that there is always something beautiful to see and experience beyond the surface of what seems to be dull, ruined, or chaotic.  Art is everywhere and in everything natural.

Join us August 11th from 5-8pm for our art opening reception celebrating this incredibly talented local artist.  The Highland Art Center is located at 691 Main Street in historic Weaverville and is open 11-5pm Monday, Wednesday & Thursday.  10-6pm Friday & Saturday.  Sunday 11-3:00pm.  For more information call 530-623-5111 or email info@highlandartcenter.org

" Their Stories " 2D Works With Varying Media By Denise Granger Kerbs

The Highland Art Center is thrilled to kick off our summer series of individual art exhibits with award winning artist Denise Granger Kerbs.  From an early age Denise’s raw talent was evident and her passion grew with every new medium she experimented with.  Growing up in a large family, Denise developed the ability to see the subtle details and nuances that make each subject unique.  It is that intuitive skill that lends so much depth to her work.  She finds herself compelled to seek out the smallest of elements in order to fully capture the essence and life of each subject.  A graduate of Chico State with a BA in Art and a CA Teaching Credential, Denise has a very full teaching schedule.  As a teacher she find a tremendous amount of inspiration in seeing the way art moves within each student’s unique perspectives!  

Join us May 5th from 5-8pm for our art opening reception, celebrating this incredibly talented artist.  We are also thrilled to be offering an Alcohol Ink Workshop with Denise earlier in the day from 9 am – 4 pm.  Please swing by, call, or email for more information and to register for this exciting opportunity. 

The Highland Art Center is located at 691 Main Street in historic Weaverville and is open 11-5pm Tues. – Sat.  For more information call 530-623-5111 or email info@highlandartcenter.org

50th Anniversary Celebration
Jan

50th Anniversary Celebration

Established in 1968 by Gilman and Lucille Snyder, the Highland Art Center is the culmination of a dream to foster culture and creativity in Trinity County.  At the time, Weaverville was a working town with few frills; but the Snyders saw potential for this to become a quaint artistic mountain town.  They believed that by creating a place to gather artists and celebrate their work, they could improve the local community and increase tourism.  They purchased the white farmhouse on Main Street for it's location and historic appeal, then spent the remainder of their lives investing in their dream of establishing it as a cultural center.  Upon their deaths they created the Snyder/Highland Foundation as a way of further supporting the Art Center, and through the careful management of the Board members that Foundation has been able to continue to support the Highland Art Center for 50 years.  Join us as we celebrate what the Highland has been, cast vision for where the Highland is going, and raise a glass to the couple who were pioneers in establishing what is now a thriving cultural framework in our little mountain town.
