The Dahl Arts Center

Los Angeles resident Gregory Hinton is a writer and filmmaker. He's also the producer of Out West, an LGBT museum series that is expanding across the nation.

Hinton started Out West after visiting the Autry National Center in Los Angeles and realizing the film Brokeback Mountain was not represented in the center's film archives.

From there Hinton went on to get a fellowship at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyo., where Hinton lived during much of his childhood.

Traditional art, or folk art, is now featured at The Dahl Arts Center in Rapid City. An exhibit titled "Black Hills Bounty" opened this weekend with a Friday night reception and Saturday demonstrations by some of the artists.

Folk art is characterized by identifiable methods of creation, some of them reaching back into antiquity. Weavers use a loom, spinners use a wheel, and indigenous artists use native materials.

In The Moment ... June 5, 2017 Show 107 Hour 2

Vernon Patterson writes poetry about personal growth, his experiences with loss, addiction and war. He recites his poetry on the streets of Minneapolis to anyone who will listen. He's known as The Street Poet. In The Moment producer Steve Zwemke fist heard The Street Poet while standing in line for a concert outside a local venue in Minneapolis and brings you more.

Chicago artist Kaye Buchman calls her show "Big Wild." The exhibit opened on Friday, Nov. 18 at the Dahl Arts Center in Rapid City. It features huge sheets of white paper covered with designs drawn with a fine ink pen. Also included are several tiny, bright mixed-media paintings and a triptych, or three-panel painting, built with layers of pigment.

The artist tells SDPB's Victoria Wicks that these works, from the simple to the complicated, are connected by their natural energy.

The exhibit is on display at the Dahl through March 4, 2017.
