"Familiar Collections" - Erika Ritzel & Laura Andrews at RCTC!

This is the last week to see Erika Ritzel and my show "Familiar Collections" at RCTC in Rochester, MN.  This has been a labor of love for both of us, mining not only the people who are important to us, but also the objects that represent or remain after those people have passed on. 

Here are a few images and some links to video from the show.  It was a delight to be able to display this work in such a beautiful space and really see it come to a new level of fruition.  Thanks to Crist Dahl for making this happen!  We will be working toward another iteration of this collaboration in 2019 at the Phipps in Hudson, WI - so stay tuned.

Heart of a Place at Banfill-Locke

I just completed a set of paintings for Heart of a Place, a two-person show with painter Susan Solomon at Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts in Fridley.

Featured paintings are larger scale pieces painted from plein air studies of Lebanon Hills in Dakota County, MN.  There are also a few from Kawishiwi Falls in Ely, MN.  The space is lovely and the staff, in particular Jeffrey, were super friendly and accessible.

The show runs from May 20 - June 17.

An artist reception will be held on Saturday June 3 from 6 to 8pm. There will be a poetry reading by Katrina Vandenberg and Deborah Keenan during the reception!  Below are some images of work from the show.
