GINEVRA EWERS: Quilts ~~ A Family Portrait in Fabric
Ginevra Ewers has been designing and making quilts for enough years that it has become her abiding passion. Most of these colorful (and sometimes dazzling) quilts are in the hands of others, but a selection of them will be collected and hung at Homewood Studios gallery.
Ewers, almost giddy at the thought of her first solo show, says about quilt making, "There are so many ways to look at a quilt, so many ways to design it, so many choices beyond color and pattern."
Opening Reception Friday, Dec 4th from 6pm to 9pm
Gallery Talk Saturday, Dec 12th from 2pm to 4pm
Tuesday, January 5 - Sunday, January 10, 2016
"Skin.Rock.Bone" Photo Series & "Mad Minute Films" Short Dance Films
Dancer and photographer, Blake Nellis, a 2015 recipient of a MN State Arts Board Artist Initiative grant, will present a series of short dances films as well as a series of still photographs. The dance films, each exactly 60 seconds long, aim to create a dialogue around our attention span and making performance art for the internet audience. And the photos display his connection and appreciation for the human body, the earth and all the visual, visceral connections between the two.
Films are scheduled to be shown, Wednesday, January 6th in the evening. The photos will remain up until January 11, 2016.
Saturday, January 16 - Tuesday, February 9, 2016
Several years ago Leile Pritschet offered a show in our gallery with Hend Al-Monsour. Leile's paintings, at that time, were remarkable. In the intervening years, her talents as a visual artist have moved to another plane.
Pritschet has received a State Arts Board grant to support her work and this show fulfills part of her commitment to the people of Minnesota.

BLUE BLOSSOM FRIENDSHIP ~~ Children's Art from Hanoi
Our good friend, artist and world traveler, Daniel Kerkhoff, has returned from nearly nine months in Hanoi, Vietnam with a satchel full of children's art.
You may remember his earlier children's art shows with the soul-brightening work of children from Adugyama, Ghana (2010) and Sisid, Ecuador (2012). Instead of living in a small village, as he did in those two previous artist-in-residencies, Daniel lived in the heart of a big city, meeting and working with street children at The Blue Dragon Children's Foundation, children with disabilities affected by Agent Orange at Vietnam Friendship Village, with residents of Blossom House, a foster home for girls, and with young people struggling to find their way in a metropolis emerging from one century and entering the next.
Details about the opening reception and other events anon.
