WITH THE GRAIN

Trees provide shelter, building materials, shade, food, warmth, a place to sit or nest, a place to climb, play, and more. They have been celebrated, venerated, feared, worshipped, and cut down. Join us for an all media, juried exhibition that explores all aspects of trees in art, from raw material to inspiration and everything in between.

IN YOUR ELEMENT

  • Hudson Hospital & Clinic (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us to view original works by artists tasked with exploring and observing nature within an assigned environment. Perhaps a beaver pond in William O'Brien State Park or the Light Rail on the corner of Snelling and University Avenue. No matter where they are sent, they will create a piece based on their recollection of the time spent within it, providing us clues to their surroundings. Along with each piece listen to audio directly from the artists as they speak about their experience and divulge their location.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER
Apr

to Jul 7

BIRDS OF A FEATHER

During spring and fall migration flocks of birds travel along the borderless sky paths of the Saint Croix River Valley. For many of us who call this place home, we understand just how important these birds are to our delicate ecosystem and we celebrate all efforts focused on researching and protecting the various bird species. Tucked deep within the valley in Osceola, Wisconsin, this exhibition invites you to experience two-dimensional artists of various ages, abilities, and mediums who live and work along the valley, as we represent our absolute favorite migratory birds and explain in our own words why their lives are significant to us.
