The Piedmont Valley Library will be displaying pieces from the Suzie Cappa Art Center in March and April.
In addition to the Suzie Cappa exhibit, local artist Wes Stromberg has loaned us some of his amazing carvings of wild animals, dinosaurs, and whimsical forest creatures. They will be on display through April and Wes has generously donated four of his pieces to the library for silent auction.
The Suzie Cappa Art Center is a division of Black Hills Works that supports artists of all abilities in creating inspiring art. It is a vibrant, non-profit studio established in 2001 in memory of Suzie Cappa. Suzie was a talented and creative artist who independently selected her own brushes, her own colors, and her own subject of interest. Suzie’s mother, Juanita, recognized her talent and provided her instruction with local artist, Ida Jansen. Under Ida’s direction, Suzie studied a variety of art forms from 1985 until her passing in 1997. Suzie Cappa Art Center continues her memory by providing a supportive, inspiring environment where artists can create, exhibit, and sell their work to the community. Artists also participate in music, theater, and dance. All artistic materials are provided, as well as a variety of ongoing sessions facilitated by professional artists, volunteers, and Black Hills Works staff. We believe in, and constantly encourage, the idea of artistic freedom and independence. Learn more about the Suzie Cappa Art Center HERE.
An artist reception for both exhibits will be held Thursday, April 28, 5:30-6:30 pm.
