GALLERY CLOSED for health and safety reasons
We all know art saves lives. But in these unprecedented times, sheltering in place, staying at home, and observing social distancing are the most important actions to prevent unnecessary illness and death. Because Homewood Studios is committed to our community’s health and safety first, we began postponing our scheduled gallery shows in late March and will continue this practice until August at least.
We are investigating the possibility of some “window shows", including new prints by Bill Jeter, an installation by Perpich School for the Arts, and the University of Minnesota Art School graduate Madalina Kelner, and artists connected with the Somali Museum of Minnesota. Look for the first of these shows, under the general title of Inside Out, in our windows beginning in June.

WHAT WE WANT
The next in our series of Covid-19 Inside-Out window shows features the letterpress work of George Roberts, one of our resident artists at Homewood Studios. Of this selection of his work, Roberts writes: Since 2006 I have been asking my neighbors what they want…not a Mercedes or to win the lottery…but what they want for our community. Through conversation we shape their desires for a livable community into a short phrase suitable for printing on a broadside. I then design and print the broadside, using my hundred-year old presses, in an edition of twenty or twenty-one, giving the first print to my collaborator/neighbor. Some of the broadside are dated by their content, others timeless their sensibilities, but overall these thoughtful insights show how much like everyone else we Northsiders are. We want those things, often denied us in the past, which build and sustain community.

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.

MARION ANGELICA: new ceramics
Master ceramics artist, Marion Angelica, has had several shows in our gallery... all well-received and highly successful. Recently she spent time ass a visiting artist studying porcelain in China. We have no doubt her new work will be equally professional, inventive, and deeply satisfying.
Details will follow anon.
