LORETTA BEBEAU: Coming Together
Longtime friend of Homewood Studios, Loretta Bebeau has her first show in our gallery. Coming Together is a body of new work Loretta has been working on for quite some time.
She writes about her work: For the past seven years I've been collecting languages from people that I meet, people living here in Minneapolis and St. Paul. I have included two Native languages because I know several Native people and they are the originals of this region. But importantly, I have found nine African languages. (My first job in the Twin Cities was at Hallie Q. Brown Center in 1970.) I started with 27 languages and the project grew as I showed the work. New languages appeared when new people saw the paintings. I have Turkish, Arabic, Yiddish, many European languages and many Asian languages. This project attempts to express the energy of several people working together. The common word is HEALTH. This becomes a cheer of positive wishes when spoken together. It has been a project of learning and growing.

NANCY STALNAKER BUNDY: Range of Color
Nancy Stalnaker Bundy is a photographer who has been a regular fan of Homewood Studios exhibits for quite some time. Now she is going to have her own show in our gallery.
The photography exhibition, Range of Color, focuses on the Iron Range in Minnesota. About her connection to the Iron Range, Nancy writes: I am intrigued with a “sense of place” – recently with the iron range where I lived and currently own a small cabin. The mixtures of colors found on the iron range draw me towards this landscape for the aesthetic and symbolic references.
Opening Reception – Thursday, November 8th from 6pm to 9pm
Gallery Talk – Tuesday, November 27th beginning at 7pm
Nancy Stalnaker Bundy is a fiscal year 2018 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Kantar, Hjelmberg & Woldorsky: Hands in Clay
Three terrific potters, connected by teaching ceramics, making their own pots, and their friendship with each other over a career-length span of time, will have the honor of presenting the final show of 2018.
John Kantar. long-time friend of Homewood Studios writes about this show: Back in the 1980s, when I was teaching ceramics students and developing the clay studio at South High, I met both Sarah Hjelmberg and Elaine Woldorsky. Elaine was teaching a night course in ceramics for the South High Community School and Sarah came to South as a student teacher. Over the years our paths have intersected in many good ways and our continued work in clay as teachers and makers has always been the connecting point.I am pleased to have the opportunity to share this show with these two fine artists, teachers, and good friends. I continue to be challenged and delighted by making ordinary objects for use and for pleasure from that magical material, clay.
