ArtReach St. Croix is pleased to announce the opening of Bold Journeys, an upcoming exhibition at the ArtReach gallery. Highlighting vibrant colors and sharp contrasts, this show features three artists working in acrylic and oil paint, mixed media, and Saori weaving.

Marianne Barratt (Stillwater, MN) is a painter who focuses on an impressionistic style, capturing the light and magic of landscapes and figurative subjects. Her process encourages an organic development of her ideas, embracing the challenge of laying colors onto the surface, and working through both struggles and moments of "flow" until it has taken on a voice and a life of its own. She seeks to capture scenes that are momentary and fleeting, subtle and mysterious, and expresses them through broad, textured brushstrokes.

Becky Benson (Stillwater, MN) is an abstract artist who values an intuitive and instinctual method to her painting. Most of her pieces begin with a single line to open and ‘free up’ the canvas. From there, she utilizes bold strokes and gradations in equal part. Because of this, her works are very process-based and bolster vibrant and contrasting colors and shapes that are both fluid and definitive. As she puts it, she must trust herself to, “develop a piece to its fullest potential without expectation in the result.”

Chiaki O’Brien (Bloomberg, MN) is a Saori weaver who, originally from Japan, has integrated herself as a leader and teacher in the art community through her passion for traditional methods of weaving. Her style of work is fluid and specialized to be fun, unique, and indicative of there not being a ‘right answer’ in art. She relates this principle to life, and how she experiences weaving as a representation of community. Through her bold colors and dense patterns, she hopes to plant pieces of herself in her works, and that is what gives them life.

A Closing Party will be held with the artists on Saturday, June 27 from 12:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

Being sequestered during the past two months has allowed us all to become more introspective. The seriousness of this experience has brought many changes to us, including new perspectives, as the world changes around us in ways we never dreamed of.

As reflected through the art created during this time, "New Perspectives - Same Place" allows the viewer to see the thoughts and ideas that have emerged from artists - on canvas, captured by camera, in carvings and sculpture, in pieces of work on lathes, and woven in fabrics. Written expressions that accompany each piece will further elucidate the thoughts of the artist during their creation process.

This one month show begins June 27th and can be seen in person at the Art Guild Gallery, as well as virtually on our Website, Facebook and Instagram. There will be no reception.

[more+]

ArtReach St. Croix is pleased to announce the opening of Bold Journeys, an upcoming exhibition at the ArtReach gallery. Highlighting vibrant colors and sharp contrasts, this show features three artists working in acrylic and oil paint, mixed media, and Saori weaving.

Marianne Barratt (Stillwater, MN) is a painter who focuses on an impressionistic style, capturing the light and magic of landscapes and figurative subjects. Her process encourages an organic development of her ideas, embracing the challenge of laying colors onto the surface, and working through both struggles and moments of "flow" until it has taken on a voice and a life of its own. She seeks to capture scenes that are momentary and fleeting, subtle and mysterious, and expresses them through broad, textured brushstrokes.

Becky Benson (Stillwater, MN) is an abstract artist who values an intuitive and instinctual method to her painting. Most of her pieces begin with a single line to open and ‘free up’ the canvas. From there, she utilizes bold strokes and gradations in equal part. Because of this, her works are very process-based and bolster vibrant and contrasting colors and shapes that are both fluid and definitive. As she puts it, she must trust herself to, “develop a piece to its fullest potential without expectation in the result.”

Chiaki O’Brien (Bloomberg, MN) is a Saori weaver who, originally from Japan, has integrated herself as a leader and teacher in the art community through her passion for traditional methods of weaving. Her style of work is fluid and specialized to be fun, unique, and indicative of there not being a ‘right answer’ in art. She relates this principle to life, and how she experiences weaving as a representation of community. Through her bold colors and dense patterns, she hopes to plant pieces of herself in her works, and that is what gives them life.

A Closing Party will be held with the artists on Saturday, June 27 from 12:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

Being sequestered during the past two months has allowed us all to become more introspective. The seriousness of this experience has brought many changes to us, including new perspectives, as the world changes around us in ways we never dreamed of.

As reflected through the art created during this time, "New Perspectives - Same Place" allows the viewer to see the thoughts and ideas that have emerged from artists - on canvas, captured by camera, in carvings and sculpture, in pieces of work on lathes, and woven in fabrics. Written expressions that accompany each piece will further elucidate the thoughts of the artist during their creation process.

This one month show begins June 27th and can be seen in person at the Art Guild Gallery, as well as virtually on our Website, Facebook and Instagram. There will be no reception.

In order to safely enjoy the show, we require visitors to wear a mask, practice social distancing and limit the number of guests in the gallery to ten at a time. The event will mostly be outdoors weather permitting.

ArtReach St. Croix is pleased to announce the opening of Bold Journeys, an upcoming exhibition at the ArtReach gallery. Highlighting vibrant colors and sharp contrasts, this show features three artists working in acrylic and oil paint, mixed media, and Saori weaving.

Marianne Barratt (Stillwater, MN) is a painter who focuses on an impressionistic style, capturing the light and magic of landscapes and figurative subjects. Her process encourages an organic development of her ideas, embracing the challenge of laying colors onto the surface, and working through both struggles and moments of "flow" until it has taken on a voice and a life of its own. She seeks to capture scenes that are momentary and fleeting, subtle and mysterious, and expresses them through broad, textured brushstrokes.

Becky Benson (Stillwater, MN) is an abstract artist who values an intuitive and instinctual method to her painting. Most of her pieces begin with a single line to open and ‘free up’ the canvas. From there, she utilizes bold strokes and gradations in equal part. Because of this, her works are very process-based and bolster vibrant and contrasting colors and shapes that are both fluid and definitive. As she puts it, she must trust herself to, “develop a piece to its fullest potential without expectation in the result.”

Chiaki O’Brien (Bloomberg, MN) is a Saori weaver who, originally from Japan, has integrated herself as a leader and teacher in the art community through her passion for traditional methods of weaving. Her style of work is fluid and specialized to be fun, unique, and indicative of there not being a ‘right answer’ in art. She relates this principle to life, and how she experiences weaving as a representation of community. Through her bold colors and dense patterns, she hopes to plant pieces of herself in her works, and that is what gives them life.

Bold Journeys is on view beginning May 21 with gallery hours Wednesdays - Saturdays 12-4pm. Always open free to the public.
