Special July Arts Guild Events announced

Thursday, June 21, 2018

This summer, the Carbon County Arts Guild & Depot Gallery will sponsor two events at Lions Park, in Red Lodge.

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks (MSIP) will perform July 12 followed by the 45th Annual Art in the Beartooths fundraiser, on July 14. These two events will provide Red Lodge with a whole range of fine and performing arts experiences.

On Thursday, July 12, the acting company of MSIP will set up their stage in Lions Park, and at 6:30 p.m. they will perform Shakespeare's comedy "Love's Labour's Lost." Audience members will find out if the King of Navarre and his companions can successfully swear off love for three years, once they encounter the Princess of France and her ladies.

Bring a picnic and a blanket or chair for a gorgeous night of theater under the Big Sky.

Then, on July 14, the Art in the Beartooths (AIB) 45th annual fundraiser for the Carbon County Arts Guild will take place. There will be 28 artists creating art in Lions Park from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. During this free daytime event, visitors can talk to the artists about their work. The participating artists include Shirle Wempner, Hal Olson, and Laurie Lee as well as Brooke Atherton, Amber Blazina, Terry Cooke-Hall, Elliott Eaton, Thomas English, Kadin Goldberg, Carol Hartman, Joan Kosel, Michael Kosorok, Harry Koyama, Elizabeth LaRowe, Jackie Larson Bread, Tess Lehman, David McMasters, Tyler Murphy, Denney NeVille, John Potter, Kevin Red Star, Marcia Selsor, PJ Smith, Trish Stevenson, Brenna Tyler, Lee Walker, Tom Wolfe, and Dana Zier.

Immersion in the arts continues throughout the afternoon with time to preview all the art created during the day. At 4 p.m. live music by the High Country Cowboys, a nohost bar, and hors d’oeuvres will be available. The AIB ticketed event starts at 5 p.m. with a catered dinner, followed by the live auction that will give art lovers a chance to bid on the featured artworks created throughout the day.
