COMING SOON! Special Event: Jennifer A. Schultz and WHERE WE COME FROM

This is a one time only special event!

March 16-May 18, 2018

Where We Come From/Jennifer A. Schultz

Reception Friday March 16, 7-9pm. 

WHERE WE COME FROM is an exhibit of small books created by artists from Buffalo, MN as well as bookworks by Jennifer A. Schultz. Each explores the ways in which landscape- the physical place we live, the places our people come from- helps determine our identity.  Buffalo artists participated in two bookmaking workshops taught by Schultz at Wright County Historical Society last August.

Jennifer A. Schultz was a recipient of the 2017 Minnesota Artists initiative Grant. She led workshops in Buffalo, MN, collecting stories and teaching people how to put their stories into book form.  

This weekend event is your opportunity to see what's been cooking up in Buffalo and to enjoy seeing more of Jennifer's work in the Window Gallery.

IN THE WINDOWS: Adepts, Accidents, and Anecdotes by Tom Roark

I've known Tom pretty much since I moved to Minneapolis in 2004.  He is a neighbor, a gardener, a kind volunteer, a writer, a rock and roll guy, an aspirant permaculturist and he draws with me, and a bunch of other people,  once a week.

In 2008, Tom saw twenty Robert Shetterly portraitsamericanswhotellthetruth.org. The paintings portrayed Americans from Sojourner Truth to Martin Luther King. All spoke loudly for justice, peace, and truth.

He felt that peace happens for reasons beyond good intentions and wanted to look closely at thinkers and doers who either cultivated the conditions for peace, or, sometimes, stood as exemplars of what not to do.

He write “Faces of Wisdom” for Duluth’s Zenith City Weekly Zenith City News. Each column is accompanied by a portrait drawings.  Some of those — and a few other pictures — are included in this display. 

His drawings will be in the windows until mid March.  Do come by.
