Upcoming Gallery Events

January-Barbara Cobb

“I can sit for hours and watch the water lapping on the shore of a lake or the way the water shifts around an obstacle in a river. I love the light coming through the leaves— watching how the colors change when a breeze comes up. I use nature’s textures and colors as inspiration for my art.”

Barbara Cobb is a mixed media artist working with fibrous materials, such as handmade paper, wool, and fabric. Her works have appeared at numerous showings throughout the Chanhassen and Chaska area, and notably include “Carrefour, Haiti,” which received the People’s Choice Award at the 2013 Arts Consortium of Carver County Members’ Show and “Some Kind of Crazy,” which appeared at both the 2015 Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts Show and at A Common Thread, the Textile Center of Minnesota Members’ show. Her “Birch Triptych” and “Sunday on the North Shore” are now part of the permanent collection at Metropolitan State University, where she completed her B.A. in Integrated Studies Focusing on the Arts (theater, graphic and fine) in 2006. Barbara is employed full-time as a graphic designer at Banner Engineering in Plymouth, MN and currently serves on the board of directors for the Arts Consortium of Carver County (ACCC).

February-A Transfer of Memory 

A touring exhibition of portraits and accompanying stories of Minnesota Holocaust Survivors.
Transfer of Memory exhibition illustrates Holocaust survivors living in Minnesota, in their homes, in full color. Each is a story of survival during exceedingly difficult circumstances. As a collection, these images focus on life and hope. From Europe to Minnesota, it was here they fashioned their dreams, their futures, and their families. Their lives are constant reminders about the value of freedom and the enduring human spirit. With this exhibit, a month of programming is being planned. This exhibition was created by photographer David Sherman and writer Lili Chester, in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC) 

March-Sue Davies 

“Dream • Play • Create” Is the brand Susan has chosen to define her creative process as an artist. Approaching every day with an open mind and an open heart, Susan gains inspiration from her sleeping and waking dreams. During the creative process, Susan is focused on cultivating a sense of play. Susan’s current inspiration comes from her exploration of Asian brush painting and the meditative practice of creating an enso (a circle made by a single stroke of paint). The enso, as Susan Describes it: “One breath, one path, one moment in time,” represents our connection with the Earth, each other and the Divine. Susan received formal training in painting and drawing at Gustavus Adolphus College and Temple University’s Tyler School of Art in Rome, Italy.  She presently lives in Buffalo, MN.
