July 11 through August 30, 2019: Cole Behrends of Lakefield will be exhibiting work from his zine project, titled “The Paintbrush Graveyard”. Behrends said, “This project stemmed form drawings that were created due to the lack of a painting studio during a Minnesota winter. I set a goal to draw 100 drawings on these four by six inch cards I found. I wanted people to see these drawings as a set and I thought a free zine would be the perfect format to present them. Four zines in total. Each holding 25 drawings.” Behrends received an Emerging Artist grant in 2018 for some art supplies and to aid in the printing of his zines. Behrends’ exhibit will run from July 11 through August 30, 2019. Please join us for an artist reception on Thursday, July 11 from 5-7 pm with a live performance from Zachary Ploeger or Pipestone, trumpter, composer and conductor.

September 19th through October 23, 2019: Paintings of Robyn Sand Anderson. Robyn received an Individual Established Career Artist grant in 2018 to explore interpreting music with color, movement and texture. She traveled to Bergen, Norway to study Edvard Greig’s music and environment that informed his choral/orchestral musical compositions. She then studied with abstract artist Jane Davies in Vermont to learn more about acrylic abstract painting and created a body of work interpreting Grige’s music of a century ago with contemporary abstract expressionist painting. You are invited to attend the artist’s opening reception on Thursday, September 19 from 5-7 pm, where you will be able to enjoy live music and light refreshments.
