MY FRIEND, GODZILLA
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 notion of presenting a gallery show around these issues began to surface. We kicked it around a bit more and finally said, “Sure. Let’s do it.” And now, here it is, My Friend, Godzilla, the gallery show.
Mi>"Soft" opening - Friday, December 6th from 1pm to 6pm.
Opening Reception- Friday, December 13th from 6pm to 9pm

PASSING IT ON: Homewood Studios 20th Anniversary Show
Hard to believe, until we pause to remember...we have been open almost twenty years. Almost 300 shows. As a gesture of thanks to our community, to the many artists and art lovers who have all supported us, we offer PASSING IT ON, a show in which each of the eight resident artis have paired with a younger artist who works in the same (or generally the same) medium, to create collaborateive work and to invite that younger generation of artists, our future artist/leaders, into our family.
While some of the collaborations are still in the generative stage, there will be letterpress work, a Plymouth Avenue mapping project, a photography/music father and son collaboration, a mentor/mentee sharing of recent work, some experimental print making, Japanese calligraphy, and several more.
Additional details anon.

2020 MCAD Foundations Drawing Show
For the past five years Homewood Studios has enjoyed a wonderful partnership with thE Foundation Drawing instructors at Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Again this year, our show will feature large-scale drawings - in chcarcoal, pencil and pen and ink - from all the second year classes. It is interesting to note all students, regardless of their arts focus, are required to take drawing classes. The results have been, and surely will be, nothing short of amazing.
Drawing is not an activity of the hand. It is an activity of the eye."

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.

MARION ANGELICA: new ceramics
