JOHN KANTAR: Mostly Pots
Our good friend, the wonderful potter John Kantar, has scheduled another show, his fourth we believe, in our gallery. In the early planning for this show John writes: I would very much like to offer a show mostly of my pots. I’m thinking thematically I would address ordinary communication through use, beauty, and accessibility combined. I would also like to include our "Blessings of the Moments" print and another print of a watercolor I made that Terry Schopper (Vangsuvon Visual Arts) just completed.
More insight and info anon.

NANCY STALNAKER BUNDY: Range of Colors
Nancy Bundy is a photographer who has been a regular fan of Homewood Studios exhibits for quite some time. Now she is going to have her own show in our gallery.
The photography exhibition, Range of Color, focuses on the Iron Range in Minnesota. It includes architectural remnants and artifacts from former mines as well as their surrounding landscapes. This series of images explores the feeling of collision between past and present on the Range: a tension between the way it was during the mining era and the way it exists today. Surrounded with history, the colorful images portray the visual beauty left behind.
About her connection to the Iron Range, Nancy writes: I am intrigued with a “sense of place” – recently with the iron range where I lived and currently own a small cabin. The mixtures of colors found on the iron range draw me towards this landscape for the aesthetic and symbolic references.
Opening Reception – Thursday, October 4th from 6pm to 9pm
Gallery Talk – Tuesday, October 16 beginning at 7pm
