May “First Friday” – Friday, May 1, 5:00 pm-9:00 pm
Seasons on St. Croix Gallery invites you to our FIRST FRIDAY CELEBRATION

Featuring Kirk Freeman (potter) and Dan Wiemer (painter)

Our featured artists for the artOPENer weekend and the month of May make a big impression! Both Kirk and Dan create work that is inspired by artists from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s … but use their own contemporary twist and techniques. Kirk’s simple pottery shapes provide open spaces over which the glazes flow. The hard wood ash is an ingredient of primary importance in his work that definitely adds movement. Dan’s work reflects the energy and directness of the natural world he loves. He is a landscape artist who creates in water- media … taking great joy in pushing and manipulating his medium. The results are stunning.

Take time to come and meet these two delightful artists, as well as enjoy the kick-off to the artOPENer weekend complete with nibbles, refreshments, music and, of course, artful conversation.

See www.artopener.com for more information regarding the St. Croix Valley studio tour. Robbin Firth and Jude Ryan Reiling will be featured in their studios, adjacent to the gallery, throughout the tour weekend.
