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

NORTHSIDE WRITERS GROUP FALL READING
The leaves are tuning, the nights are growing cooler. Time for the Northside Writers to offer the fruits of their writing labors. Short story, poetry, memoir, and perhaps some musing about the first time we voted are all on the menu for Saturday's event.
Members of the "Ginger Group," writers from St. Paul directed by our friend Margaret Hasse, have accepted our invitation to be guest readers with us.
October 29th beginning at 2pm.
Free and open. Bring a friend.
Thursday, November 10 - Wednesday, November 30, 2016
BILL COTTMAN: Disturbances
Our friend and neighbor, photographer Bill Cottman, is planning something unusual and exploratory for our November show.
In a recent conversation with Bill, the following bits of information emerged:
• Instead of the usual opening event when the show is complete, there will be three Tuesday events as the content and form of the show emerges
• Each of the three events will focus on one aspect of Bill's work as photographer, writer and projectionist
• The "gallery talk" aspect of each Tuesday event will include a conversation between Bill and another invited guest with expertise in the genre of work under discussion
• During the run of the show, Bill will be changing the location of things on the floor space in unpredictable ways
Special hours for this show only: Monday through Sunday 5pm to 9pm and by appointment (call or text 612 240-4581)
Tuesday events: November 15th, 22nd, and 29th each beginning at 6:45pm
Thursday, December 1 - Saturday, December 31, 2016
JACK MADER: Bare Trees
Homewood Studios Resident Artist, Jack Mader, hangs his fourth solo show in our gallery for the month of December. Appropriately enough, the subject is winter trees, trees without leaves. It's all about the shape and form, the shadow and the light.
Opening reception- Friday, December 9th from 5pm to 9pm
Gallery talk - Tuesday, December 13th beginning at 7pm
Saturday, February 25 - Sunday, February 26, 2017
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.
Friday, March 3 - Wednesday, March 15, 2017
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.
Friday, September 1 - Saturday, September 30, 2017
