Clayton Center for the Arts: Southern Circuit film "Warrior Women"
Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers: 2020-21 Season
Available to view for 4 days. Free screening.
Screening and Q&A with Director, Producers Christina D. King and Elizabeth A. Castle.
Warrior Women is the story of Madonna Thunder Hawk, one such AIM leader who shaped a kindred group of activists’ children – including her daughter Marcy – into the “We Will Remember” Survival School as a Native alternative to government-run education. Together, Madonna and Marcy fought for Native rights in an environment that made them more comrades than mother-daughter. Today, with Marcy now a mother herself, both are still at the forefront of Native issues, fighting against the environmental devastation of the Dakota Access Pipeline and for Indigenous cultural values.
Through a circular Indigenous style of storytelling, this film explores what it means to navigate a movement and motherhood and how activist legacies are passed down and transformed from generation to generation in the context of colonizing government that meets Native resistance with violence.

UT School of Art: Viscosity: Women of Print
An exhibition featuring work by 25 contemporary women printmakers, opens Monday, March 1, in the Printmaking Showcase Gallery.
The theme of viscosity, flexibility, and fluidity of ink used in printmaking serves as the organizing principle for the portfolio. Dynamic viscosity, by definition, is the sheer stress and sheer rate of a fluid material. The push and pull of ink under pressure can result in the pulling of a perfect film of color and texture. However, the wrong body of ink can result in tearing, push, or saltiness of the color field and render the print an unsuccessful. Constant trial and error of different additives to the ink body can and will be made. It is only after failure, success, and time, do printers, begin to understand how the ink body will react under the pressure of the printing press.
The exhibition encompasses a variety of printmaking media, and includes work by alumnae Ericka Walker (MFA ‘10), associate professor at the Nova Scotia College of Art University and Deb Chaney (BFA ‘01) a Tamarind Master Printer based in Brooklyn, New York and Paris, France.
The gallery is located on the second floor of the Art + Architecture Building outside the print shop, room 241. The exhibition is on view through Friday, April 30.

The Good Sport Box is the brainchild of The Central Collective owners Shawn Poynter and Dale Mackey, and was created in March 2020 as a way to stay connected with our community, support local makers, and help sustain their business in a time when owning a community event venue is especially challenging. Built on the success of their Good Sport events, in which people bought tickets to an unspecified event, the GSB is a curated collection of items by local makers, sort of an adult grab bag! We're excited to collaborate with The Central Collective on this Local Food Edition, compiling a mystery box of local foods, and a few food-adjacent crafts that you can add on to your meal or purchase as a stand along item as a part of Winter-ish Warmer! Each box will be different, so get one or more! Some of the items are made by fine local businesses such as Lirio Chocolate, All-Sum Foods, and McQueen Pottery, to name a few!
