“I am inspired by the beauty of ordinary, functional objects. My goal is to transmit the happiness I feel when I notice the often unintentional beauty of their design. Then I try to add a dash of humor as I combine parts into characters, creating lives for them which I encourage the viewer to carry on.”
– Abbey Fitzpatrick (Minneapolis, Minn.)
On view August 7 – December 1: Rose Weselmann.

On view through September 4: Dodie and Mary Logue and Michaela Mahady
“We are two sisters who have been following creative paths our whole lives. We grew up in Lake Elmo, surrounded by lakes and ponds, birds and other wild creatures. This deep sense and love of the outdoors continues to inform our artistic works – we believe instinctively in the power of natural forms and shapes to enrich lives.”
– Dodie & Mary Logue (Delano, Minn.)
On view July 12 – October 1: Nancy Condon, Greg Lecker, and Naomi Salgado.
