Teal has been an amazing aid in this fall’s The Enduring Fountain Medicine Show (performs tomorrow at 8 pm). She is a visual arts major at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Teal can be found absorbing inspiration in and around the community, creating “happy accidents” out of various acts of play. Her works create a meeting between tangible human forms and shapes that come out of washes of ink and paint.
She works with spontaneous acts, layering and removing paint, actively rotating a work and re- examining it so that the final product comes together in an unexpected way. On occasions she works from live moving figures, such as musicians in the act of performing, and attempts to create an overall impression of the moment using gestural figures.
The Enduring Fountain Medicine Show this Saturday, for one! But Revive the Red Tent tries to stay up on all the arts happening in town. Here are the resources we use.
1. The Fairbanks News-Miner‘s Latitude 58 insert & online events calendar.
A well-curated and attractive publication that covers most major artistic events in Fairbanks.
2. FairbanksAlaska.com’s online events calendar.
Simple, straightforward website with easy submission.
3. ExploreFairbanks.com’s online events calendar.
The Fairbanks Convention & Visitors Bureau has some fun low-key events that don’t advertise in the above sources.
Please comment below if we’re missing any comprehensive round-ups of What’s Going On in the Golden Heart City. Revive the Red Tent is all about building awareness and community, we don’t want to miss anyone.

“Green Tara first bewitched me at the Marlin and this summer she’s wowed audiences at my Light House shows,” Vaudeville Director Alex Gagne-Hawes said jovially, before insisting that both nouns in his title be capitalized. “For this project we’ll be using the honky-tonk songs that Ms. Tara has mastered as a base for performances of spoken word, shadow plays, and puppetry. Their heart-broken joy for me really echoes the wistful, lusty transformation of fall. The revelation of bare branches and fall colors before snow stores life away.”
“I want to emphasize from the beginning,” Gagne-Hawes continued calmly, sipping from a warm mug of lemon-ginger tea, “that this show will be Pay-What-You-Will at the door. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. This is a core principal of Revive the Red Tent. Without accessibility art is only another privileged oppression.”
“Also,” still calmly, folding a paper crane with one hand, “I have a medicine that will cure all ills. It’ll be for sale too and I guarantee you it’s worth the price.”
