I will be back at the Grain Belt Bottling House for Art-A-Whirl, showing and selling my art! Started setting up today – I have a beautiful spot on the main floor, right when you come in. Minneapolis Ballet Dancers and Borealis Dance (see above picture from last years performance) will perform again throughout the weekend – worth seeing on their own account. Would be great to see you there!
Grain Belt Bottling House 78 13th Ave NE Minneapolis, MN 55413
Friday, May 19, 5 to 10 pm Saturday, May 20, noon to 8pm Sunday, May 21, noon to 5pm
It is one thing to make art. It’s another thing to find a photographer who resonates with it well enough to capture its essence. I was lucky enough to secure Jessica Teigen Mattson’s time to take pictures of my new work! Just like Stephanie Pearo Dunn had previously done, Jessica amplified the expression and meaning of my work.
Two art openings and many good vibrations! My piece ‘Genovefa’ is part of
NEMAA’s “Sweet Salon de Refusees” show at The Nortrup King Building.
My piece ‘Rise’ is in Mosaic on a Stick’s show themed “Words of Power and Light”.
Bothe pieces are in very good company – go and check them out!
Shows are still running. “Sweet Salon de Refusees” will run through February 11th and will be open on Saturdays from noon to 4pm. Northrup King Building, Third floor gallery #332.
Mosaic on a Stick’s “words of Power and Light” will run through February 28th.
The shop is open every day except Sunday and Monday – check out specific hours here: http://www.mosaiconastick.com/
Three days spent at Grain Belt Bottling House for the 2016 NE Art-A-Whirl, showing my pieces, sharing what they mean with kind listeners, watching people’s facial expressions relax, change and shift as they walked through the building, watching the hourly performance of the beautiful Borealis dance group. Bookended by Olympic style schlepping of pedestals and sculptures to and fro, it was physically and mentally demanding, exhausting, but also so rewarding. My sculpture set ‘Victorian Ghosts’ found a new home, and another sculpture will do so today. Thanks so much again to everyone who stopped by, chatted, listened, shared their own stories, and signed up for my mailing list. I will definitely be back at Art-A-Whirl next year. Also, now is the time to talk to me about a discount – I am offering most of my Art-A-Whirl sculptures for about $700
I am still processing and relishing my impressions from the wonderful opening party for my joined show at Gallery 360 with Painter Kei Gratton on Saturday night. I feel so grateful to all the friends and supporters, old and new, who took the time to come out, look at the art and listen to the stories surrounding my pieces. Thanks so much again to each and everyone of you to be there with me during this big night, my first in the main room. The evening’s delight was crowned by the sale of my piece ‘Bloom’! Thanks so much to the buyer – I can’t even tell you how much this means to me. To have one of my pieces be part of somebody else’s life is such a wonderful thought! The show will run through May 29, see the link to the event here: http://www.gallery360mpls.com/current/index.php
The company Vida, a clothing manufacturer from San Francisco who prints original fine art on high quality clothing items, has approached me about joining their community of world wide artists, and have items like these manufactured for sale with my art on them! I’m really excited about how well my pieces look on a silk-cashmere blend scarf, like the one below! Check out my whole collection at:
Come and see my all new sculptures at Gallery360 this Saturday at 7 pm! I am showing my new work together with Minneapolis mixed media painter Kei Gratton, who is also showing all new paintings. The gallery is located on 3011 West 50th Street in South Minneapolis.There will be wine, beer and food, and the party will run until 10 pm. Hope to see you there!!!
Working hard on my pieces for my upcoming show at Gallery360
on April 16th! Be prepared for a a larger scale – I am so pleased to
have taken this important step.
Talented and creative photographer Stephanie Pearo Dunn
took these wonderful pictures of me working, and my new pieces.
Make sure and see them in person at the Gallery!
My piece ‘Old Soul’ made it into Minnesota Monthly’s ‘Best New Art 2016’ feature!
It is part of their January 2016 issue, and available at news stands now. I had to wait a while for news on this, and was only the more pleasantly shocked to hear that I had made it in! This definitely adds another layer of cheer to my holiday season!
So happy about this! At the opening reception for Artistry‘s 39th Annual Members’ Juried Art Exhibition in Bloomington on Friday, my piece ‘Youth1’ was awarded with ‘Best of Show’.
I wouldn’t say I work for moments like this one, but to hear juror and artists Jehra Patrick(program director for MN Artists) read out my name at the very end of the awards ceremony was a spectacular feeling. It just feels wonderful to be rewarded in this way for many years of working, persevering, applying, and being rejected just as often as being accepted. I feel honored and grateful for this award, and everybody’s support that got me here!
