DUSTIN GREENCROW: The AIM Show
We have just met a young artist, born in the year (1968) the American Indian Movement was born here in Minnesota. Dustin's art consists largely of reproducing and recreating AIM posters from the history of that movement.
Of his work as an artist, Dustin writes, "I became interested in creating drawings when I was eighteen years old. My father introduced me to the work and purposes of AIM-American Indian Movement in the United States. My work expresses how I feel about being an American Indian. My drawings use the four sacred colors: red, yellow, black, and white. I use symbols and lyrics from songs which tell a story of the struggles American Indians continue to have today."
Opening Reception Friday, March 7th from 5p to 9p

TalkAbout: Charlie Quimby
> TalkAbout host, Julie Landsman, invites Charlie Quimby who spent his career as a writer, but only lately as a novelist. His new book, Monument Road is set at the beginning of the housing crash on the fringes of a boom and bust town in Western Colorado.
Quimby is also the author of books on the world of finance (Reading Corporate Characters) and community assets (Planning to Stay: Learning to See the Physical Features of Your Neighborhood).
As is always true with TalkAbout events, you need not have read the book, just be interested in the issues at hand.
Conversation begins at 2p. Bring a friend.

CHARLOTTE SCHULD: Water, Sky, Land: Painting Zen
We met Charlotte at an opening for another show in our gallery. She paints landscapes, usually acrylic on canvas. She prefers "Amplified Realism," which walks the line between Realism and Impressionism and creates strong visual statements with large-sized canvases and triptychs that pull the viewer into the scene, leaving an "I want to be there! feeling.
About this show, Charlotte writes: Working with acrylic on canvas and mixed media on paper, my goal is to capture the beauty of nature in place. ~ With intense color, elaborated patterns, and intricate textures, I strive to show the essence of a place caught in time. I have found ordinary passing scenes, when captured in detail and at their best moments, have a staying power. ~ Whether my images are from Minnesota, somewhere else in the U.S., or another country, this world in incredible. ~ The elements of nature have powers that assert themselves visually with a wide range from gentle and healing to violently destructive. Here are the elements of nature I have found, celebrated, and preserved.
Opening Reception is being planned for Friday, June 13th (ignoring superstition) from 6p to 9p
Gallery Talk: Tuesday, June 17th beginning at 7p
Artists' Workshop "Using a Grid System to Resize Images" is the title of a workshop Charlotte would like to offer for artists. For details and registration information, please e-mail George Roberts.
