**** SHOWCASING OUR FINEST ARTISTS OF THE NORTH ****

It was Minneapolis' time to shine, and as our city opened its doors to the nation (and the world) for Super Bowl LII, the Veronique Wantz Gallery is thrilled to be championing its finest local artists to out-of-town visitors and locals alike, in an exhibition that captures the spirit of the North.

After the crowds roar at the US Bank Stadium, find a moment of reflection with us, as we celebrate the artistic culture of our northern home. Let our bespoke curation of paintings, sculpture, ceramics and glass works offer an alternate lens on your experience of the city.

Eleanor McGough  "Layers of the Atmosphere"

to Oct 24

Eleanor McGough "Layers of the Atmosphere"

Journey into the entomological atmosphere with these latest works from local artist Eleanor McGough in "Layers of the Atmosphere". Be swept away by their immense energy and delve into their fascinating detail, as they convey the transience of life from each corner of the canvas.

DON’T MISS THE ARTIST’S TALK BY ELEANOR AT THE OPENING OF THIS SHOW AT 5PM!


Eleanor McGough’s paintings explore our fleeting place in the larger patterns of weather, migrations, and time. Imagined life forms inhabit terrestrial, aquatic, or atmospheric spaces, revealing fragile and tenuous relationships within these vast systems.

McGough’s recent series, “Flight Patterns” and “Flight Jacket Vestments” explore the mysterious qualities of flight, unpredictable natural forces, and insect and bird migrations. McGough is influenced by the research of high altitude entomology that details the astonishing fact that billions of insects are carried in air currents through the layers of our atmosphere. This idea serves as a visual metaphor to the broader context that all life is transitory and swept up in immense patterns of energy.

Her work is informed by a lifelong interest in biology, particularly of plants and insects, and her influences include Ernst Haeckel, Maria Sybilla Merian, Hudson River School landscapes, Japanese woodblock prints, textile patterns, traditional Asian scrolls, as well as topographical and aerial maps.

Summer Salon Artists

Stan Berning, born in New Bremen, Ohio, finds his appreciation for realism to be a constant rejuvenation force. Working primarily with oil and acrylic, he is drawn to the minimalist approach, the editing down of subject to its essential elements.   

Kei Gratton’s process is tactile often relying on her hands to move and manipulate the paint. Her most recent paintings are meditative reflections of an internal landscape – resting somewhere between the seen and unseen. She invites the viewer to wander and wonder to a place where inner dialogue has no boundaries.

Jim Hillegass, our resident artist, is a Nebraska native who has lived in Minnesota for nearly 40 years. He enjoys sailing, flying his 2 planes, and traveling the world. All of these treasured past times encourages him to look closely, observing his surroundings, which is then translated into layered oil, acrylic, or watercolor washes.

Michael Kessler, born in mining country in Hanover, PA, and current resident of Santa Fe, NM, comes by his sense of landscape and geology honestly. If Kessler’s paintings are in some sense landscapes, it is interesting to note how that form breaks apart and widens its associative range when wed to the sort of pure material abstraction that Kessler practices.

Eleanor McGough, originally from the Pacific Northwest, maintains a studio in Northeast Minneapolis. Her work is informed by a lifelong interest in biology, particularly of plants and insects, and influences include Ernst Haeckel, Hudson River School landscapes, Japanese woodblock prints, and topographical and aerial maps.

Silvana Ravena is a versatile painter who works in oils, acrylics, watercolors and encaustic. Originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil, her education as a psychologist led to the development of her signature artistic theme: memory. The layers she creates in her paintings are intended to bring the layers of memory to life; the paintings’ textures are not merely symbolized, but are present on the canvas.

Richard Rehl grew up in Minneapolis and studied drawing and printmaking at the University of Minnesota. He began painting at an early age on the floor of his childhood home and posted his works for sale on the refrigerator door. Our resident artist works predominantly with acrylic on paper, canvas or board.

Annie Rodrigue uses art as a tool for expression. Her work is instinctual and liberating as she creates layers of texture and vibrant colors. Her intuitive nature is inspired by the beauty of nature itself. 

Dominique Samyn, born in Flanders, Belgium, is currently working in her studio in New Mexico. Her work is influenced by the Cobra Movement in Europe known for their uninhibited expressionism. She focuses on three elements: energy, color, and surprise. 

Tonja Sell, a Wisconsin native, is captivated by the human form, texture, layering, and hidden images. She works with mixed media building tactile surfaces that invite exploration.

Gaby Silva Bavio lives and creates in La Plata and Chicago. She experiments in her studio as if it were a lab where she mixes several media upon many surfaces to obtain the desired effect. Painting, to Gaby, is very much a part of her being, like breathing. 

Chuck Solberg is a nationally recognized clay artist who works in stoneware and porcelain on the potter’s wheel throwing tableware and large sculptural bowls and vases. His goal is to accent the inherent spontaneity and raw beauty of the clay.

Kathy Wismar is both a ceramicist specializing in wheel thrown, functional pottery, and an abstract painter. She believes that being an artist is more than simply making things, but that it is a mixture of seeing what is not yet real and working to make it happen.

Unfinished Stories

PREPARE TO BE DELIGHTED IN THE PAINTED PROSE OF OUR FRENCH ARTIST ALAIN BALLEREAU AND SPONTANEOUS WORKS FROM LOCAL CERAMICIST CHUCK SOLBERG.

ALAIN BALLEREAU
Alain Ballereau was born in Paris in 1956 and has lived and worked in the South West of France since 1991. The body of work we are exhibiting is from 2004 to present, where Alain's work evolved onto large format craft paper with vibrant layers of paint and pattern, quiet territories and geometric levels. From 2009 onwards, his works became less abstract and more flexible and allusive as vast ideal landscapes with human presence. Every step of the way, Alain's painting requires the accident to determine the adventure. Harmony and balance is found between the unpredictable and the controlled gesture, spontaneity and sacrifice, between shadow and light, opacity and transparency

CHUCK SOLBERG
Chuck is a nationally recognized clay artist whose works have appeared in the National Crafts Show, the National Teapot Exhibit, and in both volumes of “Best of Pottery.” His work is in the collections of the Mobile Fine Art Museum, the Weisman Museum, The Minnesota Historical Museum and numerous private collections in the United States, England and Japan. He was awarded the prestigious Jerome Grant for his work with sagger firing.
