Artwaves

Tuesdays 1:30PM

Tuesdays 1:30PM
An interview program showcasing visual, performing, and literary arts, primarily created in Humboldt and Del Norte counties, occasionally featuring guests of national and international renown. Interviews with educators and others whose work contribute to and have an effect on the arts community are also included. Hosted, engineered and produced by Wendy Butler. 

Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre’s first-year students present bold and bawdy physical humor, archetypal characters, improvisation and literal and metaphorical masks in a Commedia Dell’Arte performance  Feb. 1 – 3 at 8 p.m. at the Carlo Theatre in Blue Lake. 


This week’s Artwaves includes interviews with Del Norte Association for Cultural Awareness about its Arts for Veterans program, which is free to the public. 


This week's Artwaves examines "JOURNEYS III" with this exhibit's creator Lori Goodman. Her exhibit is at Eureka's Black Faun Gallery through Feb. 10. Among the displayed works is one Goodman created out of an invasive plant, whose branches she clipped and stripped and wove together to form "twin huts." Goodman will give a talk and demonstration Jan. 6 at 4:30 p.m. at the gallery. Listen to the Dec. 26 interview in our Archives.

Artwaves this week is about the Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics (STEAM) conference in January, as well as Humboldt Arts Now Community, Arts Education programs at the Morris Graves Museum of Art and Humboldt County Office of Education's Strategic Arts Plan. 

Our guests are HCOE Visual and Performing Arts Program Manager Stacy Young and Humboldt Arts Council/Morris Graves Museum Education Outreach Coordinator Virginia Wood. 

Micki Flatmo’s new exhibit “Dating Chaos: What To Wear” at Eureka’s Morris Graves Museum of Art is, indeed, about chaos. But it’s not about getting ready for your typical date. 

Perhaps it’s about what might come after chaos? 


This week's guests on Artwaves are Humboldt State University Art Department Gallery Director Brittany Sheldon and also Brittany Britton, Art Department Gallery Assistant. They've co-curated "Lineage: Living Traditions of Line, Shape and Design" now on display at the HSU Goudi'ni Native American Arts Gallery.

What do the Eureka High Players do when renovations prevent them from building stage sets? They do an old-time radio drama, to be aired on KZZH-LP. "We decided it'd be fun to focus on storytelling rather than sets, costumes, and lights," director Nan Voss tells Wendy Butler. Voss used this as an opportunity "to get the atmosphere of a story across without all of the usual stuff we have to tell a story." 


Dell'Arte

This week on Artwaves,: preview The Macabre Cabaret at Dell'Arte, and Humboldt State's production of Avenue Q. Both shows open this week.

What did life in Humboldt look like in 1987?

Thirty years ago this month, local photographers fanned out across the county to document people, places, and events over at 24-hour period.

130 of those photos were compiled and published by Humboldt State professors emeritus Mark Larsen and Wayne Miller in The People, Places and Events of Humboldt County (available at the Humboldt County Library here and the Humboldt State Library here).

Thirty years later, Mark Larsen and Sydney Fisher-Larson tell Wendy Butler the stories behind the book's most evocative subjects.

With the project’s 30-year anniversary looming, they invite photographers of all skill levels to again photograph Humboldt County next Friday, Oct. 20.

 

The advocacy group Humboldt Alliance for Arts Education is relaunching Friday, as a response to ongoing factors on the statewide political horizon that affect arts education in schools. 

Arcata glass artist George Bucquet's work is featured in galleries around the world and in private collections. His work is also in permanent collections from the U.S. Embassy to the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia to the White House.

A new College of the Redwoods exhibit is a chance for visitors to view some of a historic collection the college purchased  nearly 40 years ago.

This week it's all about family at Humboldt Light Opera Company and on Artwaves. HLOC's latest production Gilbert & Sullivan's Ruddigore or The Witches Curse opens this week. We talk with director Carol Ryder, actors Elsworth Pence and Katri Pitts and her daughters Trillium and Aurora, both talented singers and dancers and both performing alongside their mom and the rest of the HLOC cast in this production.


This week’s Artwaves has two interviews connected by one topic: the city of Eureka’s multiple-year Strategic Arts Plan. The plan is all about identifying, protecting and developing Eureka’s arts and culture. And one of the projects articulated in Phase One of the plan is beautifying Opera Alley in Old Town.
