Ephemeral Forms Exhibition opening

We were thrilled with the opening of our latest exhibition: Ephemeral Forms! Thank you to Eleanor McGough for her stunning works, some of which have already found homes with some very lucky people. It was also a pleasure to have Hortense La Tour with us all the way from France, her jewels made the evening even more special and gave the night a particular sparkle.

 In case you missed it, here are some photos from the event. The show will be up for a couple more weeks, so if you're in the neighborhood please stop in for a look!

Meet our new artist: Tonja Sell

We are so excited to welcome a new artist to our gallery: Tonja Sell.

A Wisconsin native and daughter of glass artisans, Tonja attended the Milwaukee School of Art, where she studied fine arts, drawing and illustration.

 “I get lost in the works of Klimt and Degas, the romance of the Pre-Raphaelites, the figures Toulouse Lautrec and Egon Schiele. I am captivated by the human form, texture, layering and hidden images. Much of my work incorporates several media combined in unexpected ways. By working in mixed media I often build tactile surfaces that invite exploration. I want to pull you in, cause you to explore and move through my work.

I work in several different media including all paint and drawing media, printmaking, ceramic sculpture, blown glass and more. I love trying new things and learning through experimentation.”

Art is a collaboration between God and the artist,
and the less the artist does the better.”

 - Andre Gide

We look forward to introducing you to her beautiful work.

In a State of Transition

The Gallery is under transformation! With a little help from a French friend in town, we moved the old show out, and the new show in! Our opening reception is tomorrow, so we have spent the day putting the finishing touches on the works that are hung. We are very excited to present our new show featuring Alain Ballereau and Chuck Solberg. Alain's work comes to us from France, while Chuck is a local here in Minneapolis. Immerse yourself in their bold narrative and reflect on the raw beauty of these works.
