16/16 Casa Magica - 16 Years of Grupo Soap del Corazon

To celebrate its 16th year Grupo Soap del Corazon is teaming with Franconia Sculpture Park in the City (at the Casket Arts complex) to do an exhibition opening September 8th. The show will be called "16/16 (Casa Magica)”.  “16/16” because its our sixteenth year and it’s 2016. “Casa Magica” because we are considering the notions that: 1) a gallery is a “house of magic”, of magical goings on; 2) we make art as a way to explore magic with ourselves - within our own psyches; 3) we make art as a way to create a magical experience for others.

Exhibition artists include Amaru (Marcela Rodriguez Aguilar), Jim Denomi, Michael Masaru Flora, Dougie Padilla, Lela Pierce, Wayne Potratz, Erica Spitzer Rasmussen, Xavier Tavera, Savita Bettaglio.

The location is 1781 Jefferson St. NE, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 55413

Abode Gallery presents WORD a group exhibit of words as art

When Dougie Padilla stands in front of a canvas in his Pepin, Wisconsin studio, paintbrush in hand, he doesn’t necessarily know what will happen next. But there’s a good chance that letters, and then words, will materialize in his colorful, Mexican-inflected creations.
“I don’t set out to put words in my paintings -- or images, or color, or line,” says Padilla, whose work has shown in museums from the Minneapolis Institute of Art to the Museé Halle Saint Pierre in Paris. “When I create, I have no idea why what happens, happens.”
 
Padilla’s visionary word paintings will be a part of the upcoming “WORD” group art show at Abode Gallery in Stockholm, Wisconsin, with a free opening wine and cheese reception on Friday, August 19th from 4:30 to 6:30pm.
 
WORD is the fifth, and perhaps the most eclectic, exhibit in Abode's series of six themed art shows featuring the work of local and regional artists. In addition to Padilla, the WORD show includes interactive installation creator Kevin Dobbe (Rochester, MN), painter Dietrich Sieling (Minneapolis), writer and rug maker Mary Logue (Stockholm), and poet John L. Barbetta (Pepin).
 
“It’s hard to put into words, so to speak, the incredible variety of artistic expression in this show,” says Abode Gallery owner and exhibit curator Alan Nugent. “The theme of ‘words as art’ resonates through pieces as different as Mary Logue’s poetry on a hooked rug, Dietrich Sieling’s words woven like threads through his drawings, and Kevin Dobbe’s interactive poetry and music installation.”

t(here): Recent Acquisitions at Plains Art Museum

The Plains Art Museum, Fargo, ND

The strength of the permanent collection at the Plains Art Museum lies in ambitious, contemporary artwork from our region, as well as national artwork of historical and artistic significance. Thanks to recent generous gifts, our community’s collection has grown substantially, and in recognition, we are proud to present t(here): Recent Acquisitions at Plains Art Museum.

Many of the artworks in the exhibition stem from a very generous gift to the Museum from the Cowles family (Minneapolis, MN). t(here) borrows its title from a suite of prints by Minnesota-based artist Steven Sorman. Sorman’s prints, like the exhibition as a whole, are elegant yet complex – universal yet regional. The exhibition is vast, and highlights Minnesota-connected artists like Sorman, Julie Buffalohead, Jim Denomie, Chris Faust, Curtis Hoard, David Rathman, Dougie Padilla, Zoran Mojsilov and others. While individual pieces in the exhibition represent a wide range of artistic expression, several connections and currents can be found. A print by the great Alexander Calder provides historical context to a collection of minimalist works and elegant ceramic pieces that embrace aesthetic simplicity, beauty and psychology. Conversely, works by Star Wallowing Bull, Andrea Carlson, and the Minnesota artist duo AMTK are rich with social commentary, visual complexity and mystery. No matter your artistic inclinations, your art museum’s collection has something for you, and we are excited to share these new works.
