6 Brothers Film Screening

6brothers March 15, 2015 at 2:00 PM MonDak Heritage Center 120 3rd Avenue SE, Sidney, MT FREE and open to the public   6 BROTHERS is an hour-long, Emmy-nominated documentary by McKenzie County native Daniel Stenberg. It focuses on the experiences of his grandfather’s family as homesteaders in McKenzie County. Weaving together interviews, archival footage, and letters, the film shows how this ordinary family survived the Great Depression, became deeply involved in World War II, and experienced many other joys and challenges of life during one of America’s most intriguing time periods. Further, it touches on how their lives and experiences have helped to shape future generations. 6 BROTHERS has been screened at five college campuses throughout North and South Dakota, the North Dakota Heritage Center and shown on Prairie Public Television. At this screening Daniel Stenberg will be in attendance to give background about the film, answer questions, and display some of the material (e.g. old letters, country school memorabilia, military records and farm documents) that helped in his research for the film.

Found Metal Finds Fused Glass

Pooling WaterFound Metal Finds Fused Glass March 20th - May 2nd, 2015 Peggy Ames Nerud & Mary Knapp The art in this show is radically different than the creations of  the artists as individuals.  The collaboration of their styles has really stretched their creative juices.  Peggy's sculptures have generally been placed in outdoor settings gracing the rugged Montana landscapes.  Mary's glass work, on the other hand, is ultra modern, sleek, and designed to grace interior settings. To merge these two art mediums has been an interesting journey and a fun adventure. To add to the challenge, the studios are 250 miles apart.   A few hiccups have been experienced as this venture began, mainly deciding which comes first, the glass or the metal.   It was found that there are many solutions and outcomes with  an artistic collaboration.  Two heads, many ideas, two friends, and lots of play makes this venture one of a kind. This show of 'Found metal finds fused glass' presents to the viewers the vision of two individual arts.
