Artists' Presentation Tuesday September 17 10 to noon

Spirit of Place: Rural Minnesota

Works by Karen Monson and Nancy Stalnaker Bundy

The exhibition captures the spirit and essence of rural Minnesota and the artists’ personal connections.  The artists’ works complement each other; Karen Monson’s printmaking illustrates the beauty of the land while Nancy Stalnaker Bundy’s manipulated photographic images emphasize the unique qualities and colors of the Iron Range.

Monson blends the physical characteristics of the land with the inexplicable feel that the space leaves on the mind. Her monoprints have a tactile quality, color palette and layered affects that contribute to an understanding of the subjective nature of the human experience often changing emotionally with the time of day and seasons.

Stalnaker Bundy turns her camera to familiar regional, such as iconic elements of Iron Range mines. She then reframes elements to create new images. Nancy begins with experiences in a place, looking for the intimate cultural details that suggest a metaphor for the space and the people that surround it. Her large, digital prints connect small parts creating contradictions or visual associations.

Hannah Höch on How to Be an Artist

Photomontage master Hannah Höch faced countless obstacles as a boundary-pushing female artist in the 1920s—not least of which was blatant disregard from the bulk of her male colleagues.

During an interview for Arts in 1959, Höch reflected on her early career, asserting that “thirty years ago it wasn’t easy for a woman to impose herself as a modern artist in Germany.” And for a long time, she added, male artists continued “to look on us women artists as charming and gifted amateurs, denying us any real professional status.”

New member artist listing

WITZKE, NAOMI

Watercolor

I paint with watercolors, primarily focusing on realistic, representational landscapes in my artwork.  I am also a former Robbinsdale Area Schools teacher and now a stay at home mom, where I work out of my home studio.  I chose transparent watercolor as my medium because I love the way light and color play in layers throughout nature, and I wanted to incorporate that luminosity into my paintings.  I am a member of the Minnesota Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society.  My work has been on display at the Golden Valley Library as well as being carried in four retail locations around the Twin Cities.

Senior Day at the Gallery

Robbin Gallery held a Senior Day at the Gallery on Tuesday, June 25th featuring a presentation by artist Annie Young from 10 a.m. to noon. The first such event of the year was well attended by 14 guests who were treated to a wonderful tour of Annie’s one-artist show. 

Annie introduced herself, “I am an artist, I also live with blindness. I don’t consider myself disabled much less a disabled artist. My efforts all focus on bringing forward the emotions that visit me, I want viewers to feel what I am feeling.”

Annie led viewers throughout the gallery describing in detail the inspiration for each piece. Amazingly, as she explained how organized she has to be, she went from work to work in order by name, describing colors, techniques and unique details. 

The two-hour talk allowed time for viewer interaction and questioning. 

The crowd response was very positive. Robbin Gallery staff will investigate additional opportunities to hold Senior Days as they would depend on the type of show and availability of artist to make presentations. Watch our web site for future announcements.
