MAKING OUR MARK ~~ THE FIRST ANNUAL DRAWING PROJECT EXHIBITION
Alyssa Baguss • Pat Benincasa • Jil Evans • Emily Isenberg • Jay Isenberg • Val Jenkins • Shana Kaplow • Aaron Marx • Sarah Peters • Ken Steinbach • Susan Rotilie • Jon Reischl • George Roberts • Lynda Monick-Isenberg • Shannon Brunette
The Drawing Project is a unique arts programming organization connecting and growing community through the act of drawing.
Lynda Monick-Isenberg, Minneapolis College of Art & Design instructor and artist, and her former student, Shannon Brunette, also a teacher/artist, have launched a collaboration designed to form The Drawing Project, the realization of a vision both have nurtured for quite some time.
To assist in bringing this project to the awareness of the public, Homewood Studios gallery has invited Lynda and Shannon to curate a show of drawings, purely drawings, which celebrate and make obvious the importance of this often-overlooked genre in the art landscape.
About this (possibly ground-breaking) show, Lynda and Shannon write:
The Drawing Project’s Homewood Studios exhibition will present the work by master artists that embodies drawing as a mode of expression, an act of inquiry, or a lens into the unconscious - promoting a deeper respect for looking and thinking in everyday life. The exhibition is curated by The Drawing Project co-founders, Shannon Brunette and Lynda Monick-Isenberg, and will be accompanied by community programming addressing drawing as a human expressive activity.
The exploration and study of drawing is a fundamental practice, which informs and inspires across disciplines, professions and experience. The Drawing Project aims to collaborate, encourage and engage diverse local and global perspectives on contemporary drawing through projects like the Homewood Studios exhibition.
The Drawing Project would like to thank Homewood Studios for the opportunity to create and mount this exhibition along side complementary programming. Look for more details this spring!

HELLO! - Homewood Studios Resident Artists Annual Show
Brook Kepros • Julie Landsman • Lynda Maylish • Bill Jeter • Jack Mader • George Roberts • Kris Treuting • Mieko Yamazaki
Once again, (this year a month or two later than usual), the Homewood Studios resident artists are ready to offer the fruits of the past year's labors.
Painting & drawing, photography, carved and embellished gourds, two and three-dimensional work, sculpture, letterpress and woodblock printing, altered books and more are all possibilities for this show.
The watchword for this show: Collaboration - among our studio mates, with other artist friends, with our community. The intent of the show: Connection - with our immediate neighborhood. We have been here fifteen years and still there are neighbors we do not know, and who do not know us.

GINI EWERS: Quilts
Gini 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."
Details concerning opening reception, gallery talk, and community workshop anon.
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 Stare Arts Board grant to support her work and this show fulfills part of her commitment to the people of Minnesota.
Details about opening reception, gallery talk and special events anon.
Friday, February 12 - Saturday, February 27, 2016
VSA JEROME ARTISTS
A few years ago, VSA sponsored its first show at Homewood Studios gallery. The work of several emerging artists who work with VSA was show, appreciated and purchased.
Again in this year's show, artists who have received recognition from the Jerome Foundation will be showing their artwork.
Information about opening reception and gallery talk, &c., anon.

NEAL CUTHBERT: The Detroit Show
Longtime friend and accomplished artist, Neal Cuthburt opens his third show at Homewood Studios. Word has it Neal is writing stories the 'village' he grew up in...a section of Detroit. Neal is also planning to draw every automobile he ever owned, and planning to invite another artist to collaborate with him "on something."
While the current description is a bit vague, trust the show will be anything but.
