May 9th through June 28, 2019: Elisabeth Fondell of Dawson will be exhibiting a creative partnership of her photography and writing.

Live music and light refreshments will be provided!

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. More details to come!

Opening reception June 7th from 5-7 pm. “I have finally figured out why I have always loved hardware stores & why my studio is always full of “stuff”. Having lots of hardware stuff around me, such as nuts & bolts, metal & plastic parts, rubber tubing, wire, hot glue, epoxy, nylon line, dowel rods, and household paint along with rocks, branches, found objects and – of course – clay, gets my inspiration started. My thoughts explode with “what if,” & this show What’s Indie Head is the result of those “what ifs”–Hank Hall
