The show is part of the Art-A-Whirl event throughout Minneapolis. It’s the countries largest open studio tour sponsored by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association. It starts Friday May 20- Sunday May 22. It’s a chance to check out local artists and their studio work.
I am very excited to be able to be a part of this wonderful show. Vesper College is a graduate school of Fine Arts and Architecture that offers a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Ecological Architecture. I didn’t know what to expect as I approached the building to get ready to drop off my artwork. It was amazing. A medium sized studio filled with artist’s creations made out of wood, metal, branches, concrete….it was right up my alley. A appreciation for the natural elements of the earth which is something that they strive for at the school-“A connection to a better understanding of the earth.” I got to meet one of the students the night of the reception. Her passion, drive, and enthusiasm for the school and what the school was all about, was inspiring, refreshing, leaving me with an over all good-positive feeling. I believe that it’s important to find and seek out where you belong in this world. Life is about living passionately towards something and that is exactly what she was doing.
Besides the main studio area, there were four other areas with various artists’ work ranging from Stained Glass, Painting, Photography, Lithograph prints, Monotype prints, Etchings and more.
