    –Pablo Picasso

    Opening Reception: Friday, April 7, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
    Artist Talk: Tuesday, April 25, 7:00 p.m.

    Two veterans, Jeffrey Stenbom and Mike Vance, use their art forms to explore the impact their recent military service has had on them and others. Stenbom, who suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, uses his passion for the fused glass medium to create striking and poignant art sculptures that speak to the dichotomy of the power and the instability that serving in a war has on a person physically, emotionally, and psychologically.

    Vance’s black and white photographic work is centered on conveying a narrative by creating diptychs using his own photographs paired alongside historical photographs to draw parallels from war conflicts of the present day with those of the past. Vance also incorporates individual portraits of veterans with the vet’s own, unedited, unfiltered written words as a vehicle for sharing their stories with others.

    Jeffrey Stenbom received his MFA in glass from Tulane University in 2015. He received his BFA in glass and a BS in art education from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls. Stenbom also received an AA in general education and an AFA in art from Normandale Community College in Bloomington, MN. Stenbom works and teaches in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area as well as throughout the United States. He has taught as an Associate Lecture at the University of Wisconsin – River Falls. Stenbom has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors including one of two Americans chosen as a finalist for the Stanislav Libenský Awards 2015, Dedalus Foundation Master of Fine Arts Fellowship Nominee, Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award Nominee, Silver Academic Award winner at the 2016 Bullseye Glass Emerge Exhibition and has been a Niche Awards Finalist in 2013, 2015 and 2016. Stenbom exhibits his work internationally and does guest artist lectures nationally. He currently lives in Apple Valley, Minnesota.

    Michael Vance was born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1989 and grew up in Stillwater, Minnesota. Working as a photographer, he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Science in history at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in 2015. Michael enlisted in the Minnesota Army National Guard in 2006 and deployed to Afghanistan in 2012. In the spring of 2016 he had a solo exhibition at the River Falls Public Library titled Memoria: Through a Soldiers Eyes. Recent group exhibitions include Real People 2016, The Old Courthouse Arts Center, Woodstock, IL; Art Through the Lens, Yeiser Art Center, Paducah, KY; Color Burst: Contemporary Photography, Black Box Gallery, Portland, OR; 2016 Allegany National Photography Competition and Exhibition, The Allegany Arts Council, Cumberland, MD; The Ties That Bind, Minneapolis Photo Center, Minneapolis, MN; Focus: Light and Shadow, Black Box Gallery, Portland, OR; Affinity, Amblewood Gallery, Chattahoochee Hills, GA. Michael is currently working as a graphic designer and studio assistant at an art company in Minneapolis Minnesota, and is currently living in St. Paul, Minnesota.

    "A splendid, intelligent musical... It's all you can hope for in children's theatre. But the best surprise is that this show is the most adult new musical of the season." – USA Today

    Based on the beloved children's book, The Secret Garden is a musical telling of a classic Victorian story. Eleven year-old orphan Mary Lennox is taken to live at the estate of her reclusive uncle Archibald. A deep melancholy pervades the house and its overgrown grounds, but Mary's youthful spirit leads her to find beauty and joy in the place. An enthralling show for adults and a perfect introduction to "grown-up" theater for children, The Secret Garden is a story of spring, renewal, and the happiness a young girl can nurture when she is determined to make things grow.

    Bloomington, MN 55431
    Call: (952) 563-8575

    Exhibiting Artists: Kristi Kuder and James Scherbarth

    May 18 – June 23, 2017
    Opening Reception: Thursday, May 18, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
    Artist: Tuesday, June 13, 7:00 p.m.

    Unravel: (1) to separate or disentangle the threads (2) to free from complication or difficulty; make plain or clear; solve. Unearth: (1) to dig or get out of the earth; dig up (2) to uncover or bring to light by search, inquiry (3) to reveal or discover especially by exhaustive searching.

    Drawn to the unique quality of wire mesh as her medium Kristi Kuder enjoys its ability to both reflect and filter light as well as how the constructed shapes tend to invite the viewer to look beyond the surface into the more intimate space within. But it is often in the unravelling of the delicate weave that Kuder finds most intriguing and rewarding.

    With a more abstract take James Scherbarth’s paintings are a reflection of his Celtic ancestry as well as traditions in mark making, written language, texture, and layers. In his art making Scherbarth will intuitively construct, deconstruct, collect, blend, erase, blur, mark and clarify while also creating new landscapes, language and patinas.

    Originally from Breckenridge, MN, Kristi Swee Kuder is a fiber artist and sculptor with studios in Minneapolis and in west-central Minnesota. Her work has been accepted into numerous juried exhibitions in galleries throughout the region including the Artistry, Northfield Artists Guild, MCAD, Textile Center of MN, Flow Artspace, White Bear Center for the Arts, and the MN State Fair Fine Arts Exhibition. She is a Jerome Fiber Artist Grant recipient, a Women's Art Institute Alumni, as well as an SDA Travel Grantee. Kuder is a graduate from Minnesota State University - Moorhead with a BS degree in Art Education.

    James Edward Scherbarth is an award winning artist recently featured in Wabi Sabi: Painting with Cold Wax by Serena Barton and in the definitive resource Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts & Conversations by Rebecca Crowell and Jerry McLaughlin. He maintains a working and teaching studio in the historic Northrup King Building in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. Here he shares his process and his approach to achieving authentic abstraction through his class Process, Purpose and Passion: Oil & Cold Wax Abstract Painting. In September 2016 he enjoyed the opportunity of sharing this workshop with an international group of artists at Loft 11 in Paris, France. Jim grew up in the Minneapolis, Atlanta and Detroit areas which instilled in him a global awareness, the thrill of new experiences and a passion for travel. These influences continue to inform his art as he explores our world culling inspiration from both urban and exotic places ranging from the UK, Ireland and France to Vietnam, Mexico and Peru.
