Featuring Full Moon Gallery Artists and
Guest Artists Joyce Deford and Brenda Ford

Joyce’s artwork has deep roots extending as far back as her first portrait at age two of her mother. The Buhl, ID artist finds art a challenge that never changes, with each painting a new experience. Her work has many influences, but the key element to all of her work are the concepts of sharing the experience and taking time to enjoy the beauty of life in the West.

Brenda, from Shoshone, ID, loves the versatility of oil paints and enjoys the accurate color and values and edges she gains by painting from life. She has been inspired by many 21st Century artists and continues her art education by taking workshops with artists such as Dean Packer, Casey Baugh and Daniel Keys.

Peace Officers 1 pgJoin the Magic Valley Arts Council, Idaho Humanities Council and Independent Television Service (ITVS) for pizza and a movie, the Indie Lens Pop-Up Free Film Screening of Peace Officers at 6 pm on Thursday, April 21, 2016 in the Sligar Auditorium of the Twin Falls Center for the Arts, 195 River Vista Place, Twin Falls. Your first slice of pizza is free, all other $1 each. A moderated discussion immediately following the film will be led by Twin Falls County Sheriff Tom Carter.

Winner of both the Grand Jury and Audience Awards for Best Documentary at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival, Peace Officer?is the story of William “Dub” Lawrence, a former sheriff who established and trained Utah’s first SWAT team ?only to watch in horror as that same unit killed his son-in-law in a controversial standoff years later. Driven by an obsessive sense of mission, Lawrence uses his investigative skills to uncover the truth about that incident and other officer-involved shootings in his community, while tackling larger questions about the changing face of peace officers nationwide.

 

Directed by Scott Christopherson and Brad Barber, Peace Officer?follows Dub as he doggedly picks apart these cases with the zeal of a rule-of-law detective combined with the grief of a victim.

Tom Carter has worked for the Twin Falls Sheriff’s Office since 1992 and was elected as Sheriff in 2008. He holds an Executive Certification, the highest Law Enforcement certificate attainable in Idaho. Since taking office in 2009, he has “brought together law enforcement as one team in our county.”

“I have sworn in all the officers in the county as a symbolic gesture to show my commitment to everyone working as a team and to give my authority to the city officers in the county to work outside their jurisdiction when necessary,” Carter stated.
