ANGELA DAVIS: Decks and Dialog
Former student of ours at North High and long time friend of Homewood Studios, Angela Davis, is having her second show in our gallery. This time her work consists of twenty-five new paintings and several painted skate boards... "decks" in the parlance of those who know.
About the work in the show, Angela writes:: The motivation behind this work is that I wanted to express how I feel about certain issues like gun violence, lack of positive images in the media and more. I hope my art will help start a dialog with yourself and others, and make you more aware of these issues and how to solve them together.
With the decks, I skated as a teen and I always wanted to do skateboard art and have a line of decks. In the last year I've done two decks for the Drop In Skate Deck Art Show at Modist Brewing and four decks that are in the exhibit for Shoreboards. In the future I plan on doing many more decks.
Opening Reception Saturday August 3rd from 5pm to 8pm
Gallery Talk - 2pm to 3:30 on Saturday, August 10th

UNTEATHER featuring Craig Harris
Craig R Harris continues his concert series of solo keyboard-based performances on September 10, 2019 at 7:00PM. In this series Craig revisits music created for dance and theater shows throughout his career – revitalizing it, creating new work based on raw materials from these shows, and presenting new compositions currently in development.
Harris’s multimedia stage work, interactive sculptures and creative story spaces have been experienced by Twin Cities audiences on stages for dance and theater for many years. This series is a rare opportunity to experience his music in concert form.
The series theme, Untether, represents both the artist and audience being “released from tether” to explore musical and emotional terrain together in non-traditional and unexpected ways.
This third concert of the series features Craig’s Music Box Variations, a multi-movement improvisation incorporating sampled and transformed sounds from a music box gifted to him 35 years ago. Some of this source material has been used in various pre-recorded forms for shows over the years, and this is the first time it is being performed live.
Tmhe evening's concert will begin at 7pm. Everyone welcome.
The fourth concert in the Untether series takes place on November 12 at 7 p.m. at Homewood Studios.
Saturday, October 5 - Thursday, October 24, 2019

After attending shows at Homewood Studios for years, a couple of long-time friends, artists Tressa Sularz and Mike Hazard, have finally gotten around to having a show of their own in our gallery. The artists write about their work:
Weave of Love is an exhibition featuring two artists, Tressa Sularz and Mike Hazard. Tressa makes fiber art. Mike makes camera works. They are happily married and live a good life making things. Art and life intertwine.

“All my pictures are love stories,” says Mike.

The Godzilla Show (working title)
Recently Neal Cuthbert, (Homewood Studios Permanent Guest Curator), Bill Jeter, (Homewood Studios Resident Artist), and george roberts, (gallery owner and resident artist), sat around talking about Godzilla. Neal had been thinking for a while about mounting a show. Some of the topics tossed around include: • the early Godzillia films shot in Japan were a response to the dawning of the nuclear age, to the possibility of horrendous destruction, the unknown dangers of radio active elements, radioactivity, fallout, etc. • the creative use of scale models to accommodate the “man in the godzilla suit” • each of us told our story of first meeting Godzilla in the movie theaters and what curiosity, what fear, what comfort, and what confusion we carried away from those experiences
The three decided a show was definitely a possibility. Plans are being made...
Wednesday, April 1 - Thursday, April 30, 2020

FEEZE DESIGN AND BUILD SHOW
Two MCAD graduates we got to know while they were still in school and showing their work in group exhibitions in our gallery, Kiley Frieze and Sam Busco, design and build custom furniture. Go to their website, Freeze Design Build, and you will see their work has a sculpturel quality which, we feel, lends itself to a gallery viewing.
More details about this interesting show as we get nearer the date.
