Reception: August 22, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
August 15th - September 21st, 2014

Year-round, indoors and out, Thursday morning is the time when a dedicated group of artists gather to share their love of painting.  This show represents the diversity of visions that are united by a universal passion to create, constantly learn, and help each other on their individual artistic journeys.

The Thursday Morning Painters is a group of 14 artists who meet at the center to paint, critique work, and support one another.  Members of the group come from as far west as Mape Grove and Edina, and as far east as Menomonie.  Styles and genres range from impressionism and realism in landscapes, floral and street scenes, to abstract expressionistic explosions of colors, lines, and shapes.  Despite their many differences, these artists have in common a deep passion for creating art and a desire to learn from one another.

September 26th - October 26th, 2014

"This work stands as a point of departure from the creation of a singular object to a larger, more thematic installaion based on the experiences of my last few years.  The 'building' of objects, ideas, career, and personal relationships can often be seen as analogous to the construction of a building or in this case, a path."

"My sculptures, made of steel, wire, hardware and found objects, are rooted in textile traditions like quilting, weaving, lace-making and knotless netting.  I focus on the transformation of materials from their familiar context into surfaces and structures."
