Two new exhibits open in the Augsburg art galleries

art_galleriesAt the Gage Family Art Gallery, now until Feb.15, is a collection by local artists Carolyn Anderson, Frank Big Bear, Julie Buffalohead, Star Wallowing Bull, Andrea Carlson, Jim Denomie, and Carl Gawboy.

These seven Minnesota artists, though at different stages in their individual careers and representing a variety of artistic styles, all use the pen, pencil, or brush to delve into issues of cultural identity. Without a title to their show they refuse to be labeled; each asks to be considered on the merits of his or her talent, message, and medium.

Todd Bockley, owner of Bockley Gallery in Minneapolis, has graciously served as curator for this exhibition.

Artist Reception: Friday, January 25, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Jim Denomie Artist Presentation: Tuesday, January 29, 1:30 p.m.

Adeline Johnson Conference Center, Oren Gateway Center

“By Water and exhibition by Barbara Harman, runs Jan. 11 until Feb. 15.

The artist’s unique combinations of materials, which can include acrylic painting, stenciling, embroidery, trapunto, printmaking, and paper, draws attention to the physicality of her work. But Harman understands her work to be as much about the metaphorical as the physical. Her series is not only about water, but also “is about journeys. It is about regular journeys — moving from one place to another — and metaphorical journeys — moving from one kind of life to another, one way of looking at things to another, one age to another, one role to another.
