2+2 Transformation/Tradition

May “First Friday” – Friday, May 2, 2014, 5pm – 9pm.
Seasons on St. Croix Gallery invites you to our FIRST FRIDAY CELEBRATION!

Featuring Jude Ryan Reiling (painter) and Tressa Sularz (basket weaver)

Featuring Kirk Freeman (potter) and Christy Wetzig (potter) it is wonderful to kick off the artOPENer weekend with two great shows at seasons.

Transformation is a collaboration between two friends who have experienced transformation in their lives and therefore in their art. Jude, who most of us know as a ceramic artist, is showing paintings that relate to the woven nature of Tressa’s beautiful, sculptural baskets. this sophisticated show will nurture the creative, the bold, the serene and the colorful in all of us.

Tradition will speak to the world of functional pottery created through timeless traditions. it will also show the relationship between teacher and student … a tradition of mentoring and passing knowledge and skill on to others. Kirk’s well-crafted porcelain pieces are of classic form and technique, whereas Christy brings tradition to her work in a more spontaneous and whimsical manner.

Come visit with the artists, enjoy two lovely artful experiences, have some nibbles and cheer with a background of upbeat music.

The shows will remain up throughout the artOPENer weekend – May 3rd and 4th (visit artopener.com for more information) – as well as the entire month of May.

Seasons on St. Croix Gallery invites you to our FIRST FRIDAY CELEBRATION!

Featuring Nolan Prohaska (glass blower) and Jill Van SickLe (painter)

We are very fortunate to host two exceptional award-winning regional artists – Nolan and Jill. Their work is complimentary in a very fresh and inspired way. The work is striking together as each artist is attracted to botanicals and nature. There are other aspects of their work that seem to share other similarities … a love affair with color, an ability to create abstract images of the beauty that surrounds us, and a technical execution that is remarkable. this will be a show to remember and enjoy!

Come and celebrate these fine artists and enjoy the art, refreshments and music.

The show will remain up until October 28, 2013.

Land & Light

September “First Friday” – Friday, September 6, 2013, 5pm – 9pm.

Seasons on St. Croix Gallery invites you to our FIRST FRIDAY CELEBRATION!

Featuring Paul Boecher, Tom Dimock, Sue McLean-Keeney and Pat Undis

The Saint Croix Valley is abundant with landscape opportunities. It has captured the interest of these four Plein air painters who have been seen throughout the valley, especially Hudson, over the summer months searching for sites, capturing the light and painting the season. The artists describe the experience of painting on location as a “race against the sun, time weather and bugs.” They also describe it as meditation, as challenging, as invigorating and rewarding.

Come and enjoy the paintings of the Saint Croix Valley that these artists have captured for us. the opening will provide an opportunity for good conversation with the artists regarding the works, refreshments, music and celebration of the beauty that surrounds us.

Special event – on Saturday, September 21, 2013, the artists will be doing a “Paint out” in Hudson. They hope you will watch for them, engage them and learn more about painting on location from them.

The show will remain up until September 30, 2013.
