Gallery One: Peter Zelle
"My art is an exercise of my intuition and my passion for color and form. I think of my sculptures as compositions, a word that resonates for me musically as well as spatially. I bring together shapes, patterns, textures, and colors to orchestrate a dynamic and harmonious whole."

Gallery Two: "Enkindle" - Matt Dooley, Theresa Schneveis, Andrea Sorenson
"I create hand-built earthenware and stoneware vessels that underscore the importance of artifacts in human culture and highlight the universal nature of human pasts." - Matt Dooley

"Being raised Catholic I was always intrigued with spirituality and rituals. I'm very curious about other cultures, their spirituality and how it differs from my own." - Theresa Schneveis

"Makers and creators pull from experiences and those who have come into their lives. I as well pull from connections of those around me, my tie to the area where I live and experiences of my past." - Andrea Sorenson

Gallery Three: Steven Johnson
"In this series of work I seek to portray an appreciation of the intricacies of Jass and improvision. With my camera, I see intimate rhythms, passages and phrases of colors and textures in neglected urban areas left alone to be influenced by natural decay and spraypaint."

Overlook Gallery: Amara G. Hark Weber
"My sculptural footwear is an exploration of human movement, building techniques, and visual metaphor. They are objects that come alive with personal narrative when worn, with the power to challenge the viewer's idead about form, function, body, and movement."

Riverview Gallery: Stephanie Hunder
"Found natural objects such as collections of interesting plants, scientific drawings and diagrams, are layerd into my images via scanning, printmaking, and various contemporary or anique photo processes. Abstract in design and poetic in mood. The resulting images are also quasi-scientific records of the natural world."

Atrium Gallery: Brenda Brousseau
"I have been beading for over 40 years. In more recent years I have used this medium as a way to document my inner journey of spiritual growth and healing. I work with ritually significant forms, like headdresses and mandalas, layering them with personal symbolism and meaning.

Find the Falcons! See how local artists interpreted of The Maltese Falcon. The traveling installation will include work by Barbara Riegel Bend (textiles), Alan Honn (glass) and James Shoop (bronze).

Barbara Riegel Bend
As a fiber artist I am drawn to the rich heritage of cloth and the story it tells through its content, color, design, and cultural history. I work with fabrics that have their own integrity and voice. In my fiber sculptures I explore the interplay of cross cultural fabrics stitched side by side with a reconfiguration of contemporary ‘throw away items’ that share the pattern, color or texture. I look to these contemporary items, such as snaps, perm rollers, zippers, for their design elements and ability to attach and repeat thus creating a rhythmic pattern to sew on to these fiber sculptures.

Alan Honn
A Minnesota native, Al Honn worked as a professional glassblower in Boulder, CO and on Whidbey Island, WA before returning to settle in his home state. Currently, he is a studio artist and instructor at the Minnesota Center for Glass Arts and Foci Cooperative in Minneapolis. Exhilarated by the demands of the process, Al enjoys meeting the challenges of timing and intuition required to manage fluid hot glass. In the studio, he states, “it’s important to stay in the moment, open to the ever-present opportunity to defy gravity.” He cites appreciation for the material as his most significant influence and prefers the “glass cowboy” tradition of design and production by a single maker.

James Shoop
James Shoop has been a professional sculptor since 1983. He first started sculpting at his family’s foundry, Shoop’s American Bronze Casting. At the foundry, he was involved in producing sculptures for the awards and incentives market. For ten years he refined his skills at production molds, casting and finishing. In 1993, James moved to New York where he studied sculpture at the Art Students League, the National Academy of Design, and the New York Academy of Art. During this period, he concentrated on the study of the figure, and he broadened his commercial range by producing sculpture for the gift and toy markets. Today, James continues to work in the commercial toy market while expanding his portfolio of figurative fine art sculptures. For the past six years, James has been teaching figurative, portrait and anatomical acoche sculpture classes at the Atelier in Minneapolis, MN.

The Stillwater Public Library Gallery will host a sampling of Tim Nyberg’s bird paintings in March and April 2017. The exhibition will feature both Tim’s trademark whimsical creations and more serious bird paintings incorporated into abstracts and Seuss-like vegetation. The paintings span over 15 years of Nyberg’s transition from commercial artist to fine (he prefers “fun”) artist.

Find the Falcons! See how local artists interpreted of The Maltese Falcon. The traveling installation will include work by Barbara Riegel Bend (textiles), Alan Honn (glass) and James Shoop (bronze).

Barbara Riegel Bend
As a fiber artist I am drawn to the rich heritage of cloth and the story it tells through its content, color, design, and cultural history. I work with fabrics that have their own integrity and voice. In my fiber sculptures I explore the interplay of cross cultural fabrics stitched side by side with a reconfiguration of contemporary ‘throw away items’ that share the pattern, color or texture. I look to these contemporary items, such as snaps, perm rollers, zippers, for their design elements and ability to attach and repeat thus creating a rhythmic pattern to sew on to these fiber sculptures.

Alan Honn
A Minnesota native, Al Honn worked as a professional glassblower in Boulder, CO and on Whidbey Island, WA before returning to settle in his home state. Currently, he is a studio artist and instructor at the Minnesota Center for Glass Arts and Foci Cooperative in Minneapolis. Exhilarated by the demands of the process, Al enjoys meeting the challenges of timing and intuition required to manage fluid hot glass. In the studio, he states, “it’s important to stay in the moment, open to the ever-present opportunity to defy gravity.” He cites appreciation for the material as his most significant influence and prefers the “glass cowboy” tradition of design and production by a single maker.

James Shoop
James Shoop has been a professional sculptor since 1983. He first started sculpting at his family’s foundry, Shoop’s American Bronze Casting. At the foundry, he was involved in producing sculptures for the awards and incentives market. For ten years he refined his skills at production molds, casting and finishing. In 1993, James moved to New York where he studied sculpture at the Art Students League, the National Academy of Design, and the New York Academy of Art. During this period, he concentrated on the study of the figure, and he broadened his commercial range by producing sculpture for the gift and toy markets. Today, James continues to work in the commercial toy market while expanding his portfolio of figurative fine art sculptures. For the past six years, James has been teaching figurative, portrait and anatomical acoche sculpture classes at the Atelier in Minneapolis, MN.
