JACK MADER: Form, Substance and the Erosion of Mystique

Homewood Studios resident artist, photographer Jack Mader, explores Form and Substance with thirty-four new photographs. The majority of these images were made in and around his Bryn Mawr neighborhood in Minneapolis during his morning and afternoon walks with his dog, Baxter. The concept and content of these images were heavily influenced by the discussions and conversations gleaned from the Saturday morning Tai Chi group at Homewood Studios.

Opening Reception - February 18th, 6p - 9p.

Gallery Talk - Tuesday, February 22nd beginning at 7p

One of the behind-the-scenes windfalls of owning a small gallery is the regular chance to spend time with an artist while we hang a show together. This was certainly evident as Jack and I worked, at a thoughtful but unhurried pace, putting up his series of recent photographs.

And then getting to meander about the gallery over the next days and weeks, finding something new to be amazed at in the work each day.

Jack's show emphasized how an artist explores an idea and then translates those inquiries into wonderfully ambiguous statements of vision.

We lanticipate Jack's next, and possibly longer, show with baited inhalations.

From Jack Mader:

It was an honor to hang my work in such a beautiful gallery setting. My only regret is that two weeks was not enough, it went by so fast.

I want to thank all those who braved the cold and elements to see the show and to participate in the gallery talk. It was very much noticed and appreciated.
