Magyar 500 x 300

Gallery One

Mary Beth Magyar

“My work explores the relationships that are chosen, even the ones that are peripheral but affect us nonetheless … The combination of clay and metal highlights the fragility within these connections to one another and between larger communities. The organic colors and materials come from my wandering and adventures outside. The organic shapes are inspired by the cycle of communities that make up our environment.” – Mary Beth Magyar (Rochester, Minn.)

Condon 500 x 300

Gallery Two

Nancy Condon

“I come from a long line of women who have used fabric to clothe their families, warm their beds, and express themselves. The narrative that unifies my work is the connection between my lived experience and the effect that we as humans have on the world.” – Nancy Condon (Stillwater, Minn.)

Darcourt 500 x 300

Gallery Two

Nicolas Darcourt

“I explore themes of the human condition, specifically our psychological relationship to accumulation. My artistic process combines multiple parts, pieces, and fragments into sculptural forms … the sculptural accumulations I create exist as abstract notions of the confluence of memory, geography, and society.” – Nicolas Darcourt (Minnetonka, Minn.)

Bjornson 500 x 300

Gallery Three

Barb Björnson

“My passion is to explore the wonderful world of birds and create them into three dimensional art forms with papier mache and individually cut feathers from watercolor paper. I love how magically each bird comes to life. I can’t help but think of their livelihood and how vitally important it is to work with conservation groups in making the population of our wildlife a safe environment for them to survive and flourish.” – Barb Björnson (New Brighton, Minn.)

Lacy 500 x 300

Overlook Gallery

Lin Lacy

“Our lives are made up of stories. Some are easy to share, while others run too deep for a simple telling, but all of them are worthy of artistic expression. I tell my stories with words, images, and thread, often incorporating my handmade and marbled paper. The words and images are of the things I treasure most. Words have the power to draw people in asking for their full attention.” – Lin Lacy (Mendota Heights, Minn.)

Petersen 500 x 300

Riverview Gallery

Alex M. Petersen

“I am interested in how the world around us is dramatically changing and how each of us has the ability to be present during the chaos to quietly notice the shifts in our local environments and communities – the spaces we spend the most amount of time in. By grounding ourselves in these places, we can begin to build a foundation for the future, predicated on resilience and sustainability, rather than despair, reaction, or indifference.” – Alex M. Petersen (River Falls, Wisc.)

Tropical Wings 500 x 300


Lana Sjoberg with Willow River Elementary School Students

Now through August 12

Gallery Reception and Migration Celebration Kick-off
Friday, May 13, 6 – 8 p.m.
Free and open to the public

In celebration of the Neotropical migratory birds that spend their summers in the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway and other national parks in the Upper Midwest after flying north from their winter homes in central and South America, including in the national parks on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, the Atrium Gallery will be transformed into a tropical rain forest using fleece, paper, cardboard, paint and recycled materials. Artist Lana Sjoberg will work with students from Willow River Elementary School to create this environment, which will open on Earth Day, symbolically awaiting the birds at the end of their long journey.

Birds made by the 4th grade students at Willow River Elementary will arrive to populate the rainforest environment in time for the gallery reception. This free event on Friday, May 13, will kick-off Tropical Wings Bird Migration Celebration and feature Meet & Greets with a live Red-tailed Hawk and Barred Owl from Carpenter Nature Center, displays from local organizations who received grants from Tropical Wings to improve habitat for the migratory birds, resources to learn what you can do to help the Neotropical migratory birds, and materials to make your own animals to add to the Atrium Gallery rainforest.

This project is a partnership with Tropical Wings, a non-profit volunteer organization whose mission is to support the Sister Parks Agreement between the National Park Service in the Upper Midwest and national parks on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica (SINAC/ACOSA) by promoting an awareness of Neotropical migratory birds and supporting habitat conservation through building relationships within and between communities at both ends of the migration.
