STEPHAN BOSSERT: Bossert Metal Arts & Walking Quest
A friend of Stephan's suggested he have a look at our gallery. He did, he liked what he saw, and he's having a show. Mostly metal sculpture but with photographs from his Walking Quest as backdrop. We've seen some of the pictures. He's good!
Bossert Metal Arts creates indoor / outdoor furniture and decorative arts. Items are built to last 500+ years and have a modern minimal design style. Guaranteed the only place you will ever find an Angry Dog-Coffee Table-Night Light-Ipod Charging Station.
Stephan has been on a multiyear quest to walk every single street in the City of Minneapolis. Currently he has walked 1,050 miles out of an anticipated 1,400 total miles. A selection of the photos he has taken during his journey will be on display.
Opening Reception - November 23rd from 1p to 4p
Gallery Talk - Tuesday, December 3rd beginning at 7p
Sunday, December 15 - Wednesday, January 15, 2014
WORK FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION
One of the pleasures and rewards of owning a gallery for nearly fourteen years is the gradual accumulation of a permanent collection. Some of those pieces which have gathered themselves around us will be on display through the holiday season.
We will also be observing "relaxed" (to wit: hist or miss) hours during this period. It would be best to call (612 587-0230) with a message about your intent to drop by the view the show.
Friday, January 17 - Saturday, January 25, 2014
LEE BRUCE: Elements
As we have often been privileged to do, we offer a "first show" of a local artist. Lee Bruce has been painting since high school. She writes about her work:
Largely self-taught, my work spans diverse subject matter from the political to the bucolic. Nature is very important to me and I like to take my painting down to basic elements, objects we often miss as we rush through our daily lives. Some work depicts political subjects I feel strongly about. Famine, one of my recent works, I painted as a poster that might be left on a wall somewhere, forgotten and out of sight. Morning Moon, painted in 1986, depicts mist rising off a river at sunrise when the moon is still visible.

CONSIDERING THE HORSE
Our good friend, the potter John Kantar, has suggested a show considering the horse as a way to raise awareness and funds for Blue Horse Foundation, a horse rescue and training operation with their ranch located at Foreston MN. (John keeps his horse there.)
He has invited Maury Landsman (photography), Julie Landsman (painting), and George Roberts (letterpress printing/monoprint making) to join him in this exploration of the noble horse.
The opening reception will be on Sunday, February 9th from 2p to 5p.
Further details anon.

TALKABOUT: Toni McNaron
English Literature Professor Emeritus (U of M), wonderful teacher and writer, Toni McNaron, visits Homewood Studios for a talk with Host Julie Landsman about Toni's newest book.
About the book, Toni sends the following: Toni McNaron, sometime teacher at NCJW, has just published her spiritual memoir, Into the Paradox: Conservative Spirit, Feminist Politics. In this work, McNaron describes the contradictory path she has chosen around the practice of her faith. Though many policies of the Roman Catholic Church anger and disturb her, Toni nonetheless finds worshiping at the Basilica of St. Mary in downtown Minneapolis genuinely nourishing to her spirit. She describes in her memoir her long journey inside and outside organized religion to arrive in her mid-seventies at a place of calm and peace with the God of her understanding.
About herself, Toni adds: About me, you can say Toni McNaron taught at the University of Minnesota for 37 years in English, Women's Studies and GLBT Studies. She won five outstanding teaching awards and has published several books including a previous memoir entitled I Dwell in Possibility.
Her new book may be purchased from Toni directly by contacting her via e-mail or in paperback and e-book format from Amazon.com. Our conversation begins at 2p. Please bring a friend.
Friday, June 6 - Saturday, June 28, 2014
CHARLOTTE SCHULD: Seeking Beauty & Incredible Places
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
Friday, November 7 - Wednesday, December 3, 2014
SCOTT HOLLER: iPhone Photography
Scott attended the opening of The Transparent Self in October 2013. At that time he told us about using his iPhone to create photographs of a certain mood and mind. We talked about his having his own show and he said he'd like his iPhone photographs to comprise the basis of his show.
