Mar 11, 2020


This time on the Bonifas Arts Update, Kurt Hauswirth speaks with Executive Director Sue Roll about events in March and April 2020.

Exhibits include: Youth in Art, featuring over 800 pieces of art from students from across Delta County. Colorful, innovative and full of youthful perspective, the exhibit is on display at no charge until March 26.  And the upcoming U.P. Cycle exhibit – opening reception to meet the artists on 4/2,7-9pm. Saving the planet one piece of art at a time.

 Classes include a Fly Tying Class with Master instructor Lynda Rutledge. Excellent for beginners or experienced fly tye-ers expanding their collection and skills. Lynda has taught fly tying for over 20 years.  Classes are on 4 Tuesday evenings, from 6-8 pm,  beginning on March 31.

 Another class offered is the Encaustic Textures Art Class – painting with hot wax to create a textured art piece with depth and color. Led by emerging artist April South-Olsen this class is just right for beginners or experienced encaustic artists.  Adding a 3 dimensional element can often be just the right touch a painting needs to make it stand out.  April is a calm, patient, and innovative instructor. This class is scheduled for April 3rd and 10th, 5:30-7:30pm.

 The Upper Peninsula Arts and Culture Alliance – striving to connect artists, communities, and economic development – will be hosting a reception at the Delta County Commerce Center on March 17, from 5-7pm..  The Alliance is represented by community and arts leaders from all corners of the U.P. and the reception is intended to help people connect with each other.  Arts and culture is the second biggest draw people visit the U.P. and is a very important consideration when young people choose to stay here.
