Library to host ‘Sketch Jam’ @ Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library
Jan 23 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Cammry Lapka, a local freelance animation and comics artist, will lead a new program for young artists of all kinds in Sheridan called “Sketch Jam.” 

The program will allow aspiring artists, from cartoonists to fine artists, to come together and create. The program will offer a supportive environment to allow meetings between artists to share ideas, critiques, collaborations and more. It will also allow access to library resources and workshops to improve techniques.  

“Sketch Jam will be an open group aimed at youth and young adults to encourage and promote the exploration of self through artwork,” Lapka said. “Our main goal is to help those seeking materials, support, critiques and inspiration regardless of experience, age or background.”

The group will have its first meeting on Jan. 23 at 6 p.m. in the Fulmer Meeting Room of Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library.

The group is specifically encouraging junior high, high school and college-age artists with an interest in sketching, drawing, animation art, graphic novels and comic book art to participate, but the group is open to all ages and abilities.

The first meeting will include introductions, discussion of preferred styles and interests, discussion of times and days for future meetings and discussion of what participants are interested in learning.

The theme for the first meeting is “Winter.” Participants are encouraged to draw trees, bundled up people or other winter scenes. Participants are also welcome to bring in examples of their previous work for discussion.

The Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library is located at 335 W. Alger St.

SC to host father, daughter art exhibit, reception @ Whitney Center for the Arts at Sheridan College
Feb 16 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Internationally-renowned artist Theodore Waddell, who has gifted the college his entire print collection, printing press and materials to Sheridan College, will give a presentation with his daughter, local artist Arin Waddell, on Feb. 16 from 5-7 p.m.  

Theodore Waddell most often paints freely-rendered range animals roaming the vast plains of eastern Montana. He is known for expressionist animal and landscape painting and sculpture. Waddell was born in Laurel, Montana, and studied at the Brooklyn Museum Art School; Eastern Montana College; and Wayne State University, Detroit (MFA, 1968). He taught at the University of Montana from 1968 to 1976 and has since been a full-time artist and rancher.  He has had more than 90 one-man exhibitions, including a major survey at the Eiteljorg Museum, Indianapolis. Waddell’s work has been singled out in reviews in the Washington Post and The New York Times, and was the subject of a Newsweek article. 

The Waddells will work with Sheridan area high school students on Feb. 15 and Sheridan College students on Feb. 16. 

On Feb. 16, from 5-7 p.m., the Whitney Center for the Arts will host an opening artist reception for Theodore Waddell and Arin Waddell. Both of their works will be on display in their latest exhibition: Waddell + Waddell. This reception is free and open to the public. The public is welcome to attend, view the works and meet the artists. 

Waddell + Waddell is on display through March 10.

The Whitney Center for the Arts at Sheridan College is located at 3059 Coffeen Ave.

WYO Theater to host ‘Artrageous’ show @ WYO Theater
Feb 18 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

SHERIDAN — While a high-energy, fast-paced, color-enhanced performance sounds like something geared toward children, both WYO Theater executive director Erin Butler and the show’s performers are quick to correct that misconception.

Artrageous — an interactive art and music experience — includes music, dancing and a form of quick-drawing.

“It’s geared toward kids in the sense that we want to expose students and children to multiple forms of art happening at the same time and (show them) that art doesn’t have to be one thing or the other,” Butler said. “But the show really appeals to a wider audience.”

Butler explained that the music included in the shows will be familiar to adults and noted that the art is very professional.

“So kids will like it because it’s fun, loud and high-energy,” Butler said, “but adults will like it because of the artistry.”

John deWolf said Artrageous is comprised of a team of friends that have been performing together in one form or another since the 1980s. 

“One of the ways this all makes sense is that, for instance, we might do a song from the 1950s and combine that with a live action painting of an icon from the 1950s — singing, dancing and a 6-by-6 painting of Elvis appears in a matter of minutes,” deWolf said.

He said the show is “gently” engaging and the group works to ease folks into the interactive parts of the show. They do a meet and greet as attendees come into the lobby and engage the audience throughout the show in a safe, fun way. 

“They love the opportunity to hop up on stage with us,” deWolf said. 

Both Butler and deWolf said the show is different from what most people have seen.

“I’ve never seen anything like it — ever; it’s really unique,” Butler said.

deWolf said the group has performed in Wyoming in other forms, but this is the first time Artrageous will come to Sheridan County.

The show will take place at the WYO Theater at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18. Tickets are $32 for adults, $29.50 for seniors and military, $26.50 for students. For more information about Artrageous, visit www.artrageousexperience.com. Tickets are available at the WYO Theater box office.
