BEFORE DURING AND AFTER: 5th Annual Homewood Studios Resident Artists Show
In what is rapidly becoming a love affair with our community and with our neighbors, the eight resident artists of Homewood Studios again offer an olio of new work - paintings and drawings, carved gourds, sculpture and assemblage, photography, letterpress printing and altered books. The point of last year's show, Hello! was to insure more and more of our close neighbors got to know us and we them.
While the thrust of this year's show extends beyond that vision, we remain mindful it is those who live nearby, who watch us at work day after day as they go about their work, who share their energy and their vision for our community, who continue to inform us.
Opening Reception Friday, September 23rd from 6pm to 9pm
Gallery Talk Saturday, October 1st beginning at 2pm
Closing Party Saturday, October 15th from 2pm to 5pm

ROSA MARÍA DE LA CUEVE PETERSON - CHIP PETERSON ~~ The Habit of Voting
Photographers Rosa Maria and Chip Peterson are inveterate world-travelers. In several places throughout the world, they have taken photos of people voting. What more appropriate subject for a show in our gallery at this moment in time?
They write about their intentions for the show as follows:
DURING OUR TRAVELS TO VARIOUS PARTS OF THE WORLD, WE HAVE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE IN SEVERAL COUNTRIES DURING THEIR ELECTORAL CAMPAIGNS; A FEW TIMES WE HAVE HAPPENED TO BE THERE DURING ELECTION DAY.
IN MINNESOTA, WE HAVE BEEN ENGAGED IN CIVIC PARTICIPATION DURING ELECTORAL PERIODS BY ATTENDING CAUCUSES, SUPPORTING CANDIDATES, REGISTERING CITIZENS TO VOTE, GETTING OUT THE VOTE (IN PARTISAN AND NON-PARTISAN EFFORTS ALIKE), AND VOTING. OUR CANDIDATES HAVE BEEN ON THE WINNING AND LOSING SIDES, ELICITING JUBILATION OR DISAPPOINTMENT.
THE PHOTOGRAPHIS IN THIS EXHIBIT REFLECT SOME OF OUR EXPERIENCES ABROAD AND AT HOME. THIS VISUAL NARRATIVE REMINDS US THAT, ALTHOUGH THE HABIT OF VOTING MAY NOT ALWAYS YIELD THE RESULTS THAT WE HOPE FOR. BY PARTICIPATING IN THE ELECTORAL PROCESS, WE ATTEST TO THE DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLE OF WE THE PEOPLE.
Opening Reception - Friday, October 21st from 6pm to 9pm
Gallery Conversation - Tuesday, November 1st beginning at 7pm

JAPANESE CALLIGRAPHY - Student Work
Homewood Studios resident artist, Mieko Yamazaki, not only fills her studio with the most surprising and color-lush abstract paintings, from time to time she also teaches Japanese calligraphy in our gallery.
Mieko has invited students from the past several classes to participate in a weekend show honoring their efforts at this demanding art.
On both Saturday, February 25th, and Sunday, February 26th, the gallery will be open from 1pm to 3pm. Many of the student calligraphers will be present to talk about the work, to discuss their class experience, and to exchange thoughts about art/art-making in general.
Free and open. Bring a friend.

Gregory McDaniels and others
Gregory McDaniels is a friend of Homewood Studios and has mounted other shows in our gallery in the past. He brings with him an eclectic and accomplished group of artist friends who always create a great show. We expect this new show will be no different.
