Las Vegas Weekly – Oct 12, 2017 – Rediscovering the Arts Factory’s daily creative pulse
I’m meeting Lisa Dittrich’s neighbors, nearly all of which are in the process of creating. One is making a time-lapse video of a painting in progress. Another proudly informs us that she stretches her own canvases on premises. And Dittrich says that another artist in the building mixes his own pigments. “We didn’t have anything like this growing up,” Dittrich says. “I moved out here in 1985. It would have been fantastic to have something like this back then.” To be honest, I don’t often think about the Arts Factory outside of First Friday. I’ve taken it for granted, which I shouldn’t do, because Dittrich’s right; it wasn’t that long ago that this city didn’t have buildings full of artists creating art on weekdays.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the most diverse of them all? Why it’s Lisa Dittrich of course! Whether she’s drawing circus animals, zombies, Dr. Seuss-eque creatures, kitties or landscapes, Dittrich is always ready, willing and able to draw in detail anything that’s asked of her. It started in New Mexico when she was just five years old. Her father was a water colorist and art came naturally to her. By the time she was 7 years old, she was drawing semi-photo-realistic horses and entering school art contests, many of which she won. When she entered high school art class, her teacher and mentor, Dwayne Berg, took Dittrich under his wing and helped her to refine her already-advanced skills. He taught her proportion, and most important of all to her, shading; lessons she remembers and uses to this day.

A longtime resident, Lisa Dittrich has been part of the Las Vegas art scene for years. Inspired by her father, she creates by drawing, painting, and welding art out of iron, steel and other metals, but admits to a preference of working with acrylics and watercolors. Dittrich recently created, “They Have Risen, A Zombie Tribute Art Show,” exploring one of her favorite things motivated by the television show, “The Walking Dead,” George Romero’s movie, “Night of the Living Dead” and current interest in the subject of zombies.
