August 31 - October 1; Color Of Land

Color Of Land; Paintings by Alyssa Wendorff and Margi Grill 

Reception Friday September 9, 6 - 8 PM

Color of Land is an exploration by artists Alyssa Wendorff and Margi Grill. Seeking to represent the mood and tone of the Midwestern Landscape, memories and emotion found in the natural environment are obsessions for both. The art making process and the fluid media of paint begins a layered journey of remembrance as they seek document a fleeting recollection.

This exhibit showcases individual works by the paint-based mixed media artists, as well as a collection of collaborative works. For the project, each artist chose the inspiration for the other, sharing photos of captured moments that they found significant. Interpreted through both sets of eyes and imagination, these works on paper tracks moments in time and the changing landscape.

Alyssa Wendorff and Margi Grill met as BFA candidates at the University of Minnesota, in 2003. Initially drawn to each other’s work based on intersecting subject matter and a shared approach to process and media, the two began working collaboratively, and continue to draw inspiration from one-another’s work. 

Both Margi and Alyssa still live in the urban centers of the Twin Cities, and their recent work follows the changing seasons in tandem with the changes in their own lives.

August 3 - 27; "The Great Minnesota Get-Together"

Photographs by Charles Hezsely & John Mihelic

It’s the “Great Minnesota Get-Together” – our old-fashioned harvest celebration in the golden days of August. The State Fair is a thousand realities. It’s people – all ages, colors, shapes, ethnicities, all taking the opportunity to wear their least-stylish Saturday morning T-shirts and shorts. It’s food and it’s ritual – sweet corn on the cob, smoked pork chops dribbling grease on your shirt, pronto pups drenched in mustard, cotton candy sticking to your cheek. It’s the stroll through the animal barns, the dog exhibit, the butterfly tent, the Art Barn; it’s the breads, cakes, pickles, jams, jellies, knitting, sewing, and needlework in the 4H exhibits.

It’s not all noise and crowds. For the dozens of volunteer organizations, the Fair is the yearly fundraising opportunity – good nature, good food, and social concern all baked into a hot dish. It’s the essence of wholesomeness in the Princess Kay butter sculpture. It’s the muscular heavy metal symphony of red, green, yellow, orange, and chrome on Machinery Hill. It’s a hundred intimate corners, moments of quiet solitude just outside the flowing crowds. It’s the beauty of the Midway lights against the dark blue evening sky. It’s the aching scene of a boy asleep on his prize-winning and soon-to-be sold calf.

For all Minnesotans, it’s a yearly sacrament that reconnects us with our rural past and with our shared future.

The exhibit’s two photographers, Charles Hézsely and John Mihelic, have radically differing photographic styles, yet complementary visions. In approximately 50 photographs they portray the Minnesota State Fair in its multifaceted living reality. The exhibit will be open through August 27.
