Two festive events will begin simultaneously at 4 pm on Saturday, October 2, at the Peninsula School of Art in Fish Creek. The public is invited to take part in the school’s inaugural “Iron Pour” to benefit its art education programs, and take in the festivities at the free opening reception of the exhibition “Norse Mythology, the Muse.”
The public is welcome to create ceramic tiles during the “Iron Pour.” The tiles will be cast at 6 pm and completed about 8 pm. The cost to participate is $30 for adults and $15 for children.
The “Iron Pour” will feature live country music, beginning at 5 pm by the Modern Day Drifters.
The “Iron Pour” is also part of a four-day iron casting workshop with award-winning sculptor, Teresa Lind, which begins on September 30.
The reception for “Norse Mythology, the Muse” will take place from 5 – 7 pm. For this exhibition, 20 artists were invited to offer their unique interpretations of four ancient myths that explain the natural world.
The reception will feature original theatrical vignettes of Norse (Scandinavian) myths by local potter and thespian, Larry “Thor” Thoreson and members of the Paul Sills Troupe. Immediately following the performance, Sue Daubner will provide short readings of a selection of Norse myths while in costume.
Refreshments will be served at both events.
