  1. Maud Hixson and the Wolverines Big Band

    Maud Hixson and the Wolverines Big Band

    1800 W Old Shakopee Rd
    Bloomington, MN 55431
    Call: (952) 563-8575

    Singer Maud Hixson joins the Wolverines Big Band for a concert premiering a program of new vocal arrangements and classic repertoire from the band’s 44-year history. Maud Hixson is a fiscal year 2017 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota, through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

    Led by drummer Jendeen Forberg, the Wolverines Big Band covers a wide range of styles, including the best of the bands led by Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson and more. Founded in 1973, the band was featured on the initial broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion, and their first four albums garnered four-star reviews in Downbeat Magazine. They even played Jimmy Carter’s inaugural ball!
    Hailed as “gently virtuosic” (All About Jazz), Maud Hixson is a devoted exponent of great songs, ranging from the classic Great American Songbook to the often unsung or forgotten compositions awaiting rediscovery. Musician and historian Michael Feinstein observed: “Her vocal style is so warm, compelling and intimate—it’s clear she cares about the words and telling the story, with clarity and without artifice—almost a lost art these days.” In April, Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune declared, “Hixson stood out as the biggest revelation at the Chicago Cabaret Convention”.

    The Modernist Eye

    1800 W Old Shakopee Rd
    Bloomington, MN 55431
    Call: (952) 563-8575

    Exhibiting Artist: Barbara McIlrath

    September 28 - November 10, 2017

    Opening Reception: Thursday, September 28, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

    "I share with you my favorite places on the river.
    Like a fisherman, armed with a tackle box
    and a passion for being outdoors…
    I try to outsmart a wild color or shape
    before it slips away."
    - Barbara McIlrath

    Inspired by the seasonal changes in the sky, land, and water along the Mississippi and near Lake Pepin, artist Barbara McIlrath is devoted to perceiving the world more deeply and revealing it to the viewer through her lush paintings using oil paint, bees wax, Belgian linen, pasted paper, graphite, and charcoal.

    Specifically, McIlrath is drawn to and inspired by Frontenac State Park, the village of Old Frontenac (Florence Township Beach), and Hicks Valley near Pepin, Wisconsin. While working outside she uses her “modernist eye” to reveal simplified, improvisational interpretations of these special places. The resulting work can range from recognizable images of sky, land and water to completely abstract compositions discovered in the process of interpreting what is seen.

    From the small, intimate drawings and paintings done “en plain aire” to the final large canvases completed in the studio the viewer will get a unique view into the artist’s process as well as a chance to savor the final product.

    About the Artist:
    Barbara McIlrath lives in St. Paul and works from her farm/studio in the dramatic landscape of the Driftless Region of western Wisconsin, near Lake Pepin, where the seasonal changes in the sky, land, and water constantly inspire her devotion to perceiving the world more deeply through painting and drawing.

    Growing up just outside of Chicago, she earned her BA degree in Humanities at Illinois Wesleyan University, MS degree at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, and BFA degree at Minneapolis College of Art & Design, where she received the Vanderlip Award at graduation. She has worked as a graphic designer, illustrator, instructional designer for Mayo Clinic, corporate training consultant and faculty member at Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
