Face Yoga/How to take years off of your face

Fumiko Takatsu, has been studying for the last 15 years the most common signs of facial aging. She focuses on seven major unconscious, ordinary behaviors that cause premature facial aging. Fumiko, a student of ours who visits the studio in the summer, will be teaching part of the gentle yoga class this Monday, July 10 at 9 am. She will show us some yoga movements for the face that will help with the aging process. You can attend this class as a drop in student for $13 or use your pass. I am very excited to have her with us, many of us have been interested in her technique so I feel fortunate she is giving us a glimpse into it... Join us this Monday!

Exhibit on display from Thurs., July 6th – Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Livingston Center for Art and Culture presents:

6 artists: Joel Kiser, Coral Lambert, Suz Marshak, Karin Neff, Carla Pagliaro, Laura Poinsette, and Kelley Sullivan. July 6 through August 3rd. Reception/Art Walk: Friday, July 28th, 5:30 – 8pm.

"Treasured States" came about in a discovery of travel, looking at objects and amazing landscapes that took our breath away and made us stop, look and feel. The idea that a work of art resonates such that our minds and souls give it immense visual value to the experience. Holding works of art and places in high regard as a visual treasure.

Precious. Stunning. Special.

Pour Painting AGAIN! taught by Grey Wilson

Date: Saturday, JULY 22

Time: NOON to 2pm
Cost: $45 per student ($40 for LCAC members)

In this THIRD offering, Wilson will demonstrate the basics of creating paintings that use gravity as your paint brush. Use of specific materials will be explained, how to use them and effects that can be achieved when combining them.

Students will be able to do more than one painting in the class. They may have to pick up their art the following Tuesday, as it only takes overnight to dry. Completed paintings also move slightly, so it is better to let them set. Drawing skills are not necessary. If you can put ketchup on a hamburger, you can do this. It's lots of fun and you will be surprised how creative you will become.

All materials included.

Reception for A Railroad Runs Through It: Livingston Artists Celebrate the Railroad to held June 15, 2017 at 7pm

FOR THE SUMMER OF 2017 and celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of the museum, the Livingston

Depot Foundation is unveiling a landmark exhibition entitled: “A Railroad Runs Through It: Livingston

Artists Celebrate Trains.” A special artist reception will be held June 15, 2017 at 7pm. Music by the

Park High School Jazz Band and poetry by Marc Beaudin will set the stage as artists and the public

celebrate trains and our enduring, interconnected, and spirited relationship with the railroad. The

evening will include light fare passed by the Sister City Cultural Exchange, and refreshments provided

by Neptune’s Brewery.

Painters, photographers, and sculptors celebrate both the historic Depot and the dynamic train

activity that passes daily. A poetic Montana reminiscence made into a captivating movie, A River

Runs Through It has its own connections to Livingston, with memorable scenes filmed in nearby

locations. In an obvious play on words, we titled the exhibition A Railroad Runs Through It, reflecting

the reality that is Livingston. This can be taken quite literally—a railroad does run through our town.

But [and perhaps because of its source], it is pleading to be elevated to higher ground. Norman

Maclean has set a high bar....

Guest curators Tandy Miles Riddle and Adrienne Pollard note that the exhibit takes the form in a

range of images, abstract or literal, allegorical, obvious, abstruse, anything reflecting diversity and

artistic insight. From a quilt pieced together with scraps of silk kimonos and gingham (a subtle

allusion to the thousands of Asian laborers who helped build the western railway system and to the

emigrants brought west via that system to settle the frontier) to the telegraph and its interdependent

relationship with the railroad (both linking distant places and kindling the railroad’s concept and

development of standardized time!).

Featured artists include Jim Barrett, Marc Beaudin, Storrs Bishop, Eleanor Williams Clark, Edd

Enders, Malou Flato, Doris Davis Gallagher, Sheila Hrasky, Bob Newhall, Adrienne Pollard, Parks

Reece, Tandy Miles Riddle, Robert Spannring, Colleen Story, Mark Strand, David Swanson, Joe

Wayne, and John Zumpano. Historic photos from the A. Gill collection of Wellington Brouse, as well

as the iconic railroad images from Historian Warren McGee, will be juxtaposed with the contemporary

art. Depot Museum Director, Diana Seider, stated, “A Railroad Runs Through It special exhibit is a

colorful celebration for the 30 th anniversary of the Depot Museum. The powerful work in this exhibition

affirms the connection between the railroad and Livingston’s robust artist community.”

In connection with the exhibit, the Depot will host a variety of classes throughout the season. The first

class will be taught by Eleanor Clark who will be sharing her expertise in naturalist journaling and

mixed media art. Clark will instruct an adult class in afternoon of July 13 th from 1-3 pm. She will also

host a youth oriented class in the morning from 9-11 am. The Movies on the Lawn series will

celebrate the 25th anniversary of “A River Runs Through It” on August 17 to compliment the show.

The Depot Museum exhibits in 2017 will run from Friday, May 12 through September 24. Located at

200 West Park, the Depot is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from

1 to 5 p.m. There is a nominal admission, and group visits are also welcome by special arrangement.

Additional information can be obtained by contacting the Depot office at (406) 222-2300 or visiting
