A certain nostalgia for childhood and youth will fill the ArtReach gallery during School Daze. The exhibition features mixed media “shrines” to school days past by Sue Cranston, portraits celebrating the innocence of youth by Jennifer Davenport, and contemplative artist books by Wendy Fernstrum.

Sue Cranston (River Falls, WI) explores her childhood with her artistic practice. Using acrylic paint, mixed media, digital art and deconstructed school furniture, Cranston plays with her interest in uniforms, textiles and objects of her youth. Her shadowboxes and paintings seek to depict symbolic evidence of vulnerability, earnestness, wholesomeness, honesty, ambition and civic duty.

Jennifer Davenport (Stillwater, MN) uses her skill in drawing and illustration to depict young girls in moments of concentration, exploration and discovery. These charcoal drawings were inspired by her daughter and other children she met during a year working as an assistant teacher. She seeks to explore themes of introspection, personal growth and social justice with her art practice.

Wendy Fernstrum (Minneapolis, MN) is a book and paper artist, formerly residing in Marine on St. Croix. Her drawings and handmade artist books are concerned with interstitial spaces and subverting the illusion of duality. Her work has been exhibited locally and nationally, and can be found in many prestigious collections such as that of the Walker Art Center.

Celebrate the opening of School Daze on Thursday, September 12 from 6-8 pm. Free reception, everyone is welcome!
