St. Paul Art Crawl: Help the Zebras Find Their Stripes

 

Help the Zebras Find Their Stripes

Come to the Dow Gallery (2242 University Avenue W) on Sunday, October 11 from 1-2 for a Saint Paul Art Crawl Make-and-Take workshop. Two of my old friends, Wall Street Zebra (below) and Xavier Camo Zebra (far below), invite you to Help the Zebras Find stripes or dots or anything else that you think might be fun for a Zebra. Camo Zebra? Incognito Zebra? Wherever your imagination takes you (and your zebra!)

Art Crawls: Dow Gallery-St. Paul & Savage-Scott Co.

Two in 1 weekend: I need a scheduler

Somewhere in the Minnesota Constitution it says that an artist must live on every block and that there must be at least on art event on every weekend. I am my building’s artist, and this weekend I will be in two art events: The Saint Paul Art Crawl at the Dow Gallery (I will be there Friday night and all day Sunday, and will teach “Help the Zebras Find Their Spots” on Sunday from 1-2); and the Scott County Art Crawl (10-4 on Saturday).

The Saint Paul Art Crawl At the Dow Gallery

The Dow Art Gallery (2242 University Avenue West) is in the iconic Dow Building, home to a large community of artists working across disciplines. The Gallery is a beautifully lit space on the Green Line and artists line up for space there because of the light and location.  Be prepared to have your jaw drop at the talent.

A true nanoscape

Having selfishly hung The Tall Silos of Iowa in my house for years, I finally realized that I don’t need to keep all of my favorite paintings forever. It was the first of my paintings ever to be juried into a show, and it is a true nanoscape: tiny spaces, tiny brushes, tiny designs.  Inspired by my first trip to Iowa, I decided that the silos needed some sprucing up. It is beautifully framed (9×22) in a bright orange metallic frame with a domed triple mat. $220 plus tax from Dow Gallery.

Scott County Art Crawl: Savage MN Saturday October 10

I will be at the Savage City Hall Community Room, 6000 McColl Drive. Come to meet the Clowder of Cats! Here are two of them.

At the Dow Art Gallery for the Art Crawl (and beyond)

 Some Artists at the Dow Art Gallery

I stand by my personal label as Whimsical Wildlife Documentarian.

I will deny forever that I am a good photographer. Clearly there is more to learn about photography and Photoshop. How, for example, should light reflections be eliminated without deeply hurting the underlying image. How does an amateur photographer contort herself to get a square or rectangular photo without acquiring permanent back injuries. Make a list for next week.

Come to the Dow Art Gallery to see these works (and many more).

I apologize in advance to the artists whose work I’ve Instagrammed and reproduced here.

The 3 Cats & 11 Flamingos Acapella Group are starring on my wall at the Dow Art Gallery during the Saint Paul Art Crawl. Click here to download a pass for FREE Green Line transportation for Saturday and Sunday. (Note: you have to take a two-question survey first.)

The group lives and practices in Saint Paul, in a home with a very-well sound insulated practice room. The group has stopped out from their first World Tour to appear at the Dow Art Gallery.

Abstract Connections work-in-progress

Connections #7 Work-in-progress April 19

Work-in-progress

Artists waste no time. While putting in my Vine Arts Center gallery hours yesterday, I took out my General Pencil (6H) and made the pencil drawing. BONUS: see how General Pencils are made.

Late last night, while binging on Death in Paradise (thank you Netflix), I pulled out my double zero brush and began to fill in the boxes.

See this piece (finished or not)

Connections #7 is part of a series of paintings which began as a doodle during conference calls where a group of us strategized about how our dear friend and wonderful judge might be connected to the decision-maker who might appoint her to a difference judgeship. Her constituents are lucky to have her. I am lucky to have made an image that shows everyone and everything is connected.
