red garage studio | The Sketchbook Show

Opening Reception: Friday, September 7 at 7:00-10:00pm

How do artists observe and reflect on their inner and outer world and how does it nourish and feed the creative process? The sketchbook is a basic tool of the trade for most artists, but the form it takes is unique to each. For some it is a work of art itself, for others it is a series of lists, a way to process thoughts and emotions, or a pile of scrap papers and napkins with jottings of sudden ideas and inspirations. In all cases, it is a method of casual exploration that nourishes and feeds the creative process, either directly or indirectly.

Thirty artists, working in all different types of media and at all stages in their career, are now willing to share this process with you.

CONTRIBUTING ARTISTS:
Lamia Abukhadra, Rachel Bruya, Chris Cinque, Sean Connaughty, Pete Driessen, Kyle Fokken, Toni Gallo, Frank Gaard, Mary Gibney, Martin Gonzales, Carmen Gutierrez-Bolger,  Lindsy Halleckson, Christopher E. Harrison, Jeremy Jones, Mari Mansfield, Joshua McGarvey, Olivia Novotny, Britt Omann, alex m. petersen, Hillary Price, Nancy Robinson, Nina Martine Robinson, Jenny Schmid, Jennifer A. Schultz, John Schuerman, Maria Cristina Tavera, Molly Uravitch, Derek Van Gieson, Joshua Wilichowski, Jacob Yeates

Barnard Gallery | nano 1.2

Opening reception: Tuesday, June 5 at 6:30pm

A concept of relative simplicity, nano- 1.2 invited artists to zoom in, scale down, shrink, condense, encapsulate and compact; submitting works no larger than 20 x 20 cm. The exhibition is an opportunity to play with scale, to explore what effects it has for both artist and viewer, and what new parameters it may set for the curator and the gallery space.
 
Smaller works immediately require and create a greater intimacy with the viewer, compelling us to come closer, look closer, stay longer. While large, expansive works keep us at a distance, smaller works activate interiority and introspection. They require a sharper focus, a keener gaze, a lingering attention.  Playing into our fascination with the miniature, small works conjure whimsy, a sense of the magical, a playfulness. But profundity need not be reserved only for the grandiose, and by requiring an economy of expression from the artist, smaller works are also often surprisingly affecting and impactful.

Parade of Homes | 2018 Spring Dream Home

  • 4937 Beard Avenue S. Minneapolis, MN 55410 US (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Nine of my paintings are featured in Sustainable 9 Design + Build's Dream Home #436 2018 Spring Parade of Homes. 

Perhaps the most unique home in all of Linden Hills, this modern masterpiece is not to be missed. It features a massive rooftop deck overlooking a green roof system and visually striking, bold modern finishes throughout. Superb energy efficiency is achieved via advanced building science techniques, extreme insulation, and a 4.2 kW solar array that powers the home. The open floor plan has an aqua colored floating staircase, back-lit cabinetry, an eye-popping kitchen with a backsplash that wraps onto the ceiling and floats over the island’s recycled glass countertops, and a wet bar that changes color with the flip of a switch.

Open Thursdays - Sundays 12:00-6:00pm until March 25. A $5 admission fee to tour this home helps the BATC-Housing First Minnesota Foundation continue their efforts building and remodeling homes for area families in need.
