Lisa Bergh “Reach and Gather”
April 22 – May 27
Lisa Bergh’s work represents her ongoing investigation merging figuration with abstraction. Within her topographies of bold color, and simple form, visual tension pushes at the boundary between object and painting. The works presented in this exhibit come from two separate, ongoing series by the artist: Postures and Studies of Restraint.
Neighbors: Painter + Potter
Judith Bergerson and Peder Hegland
June 3 – July 16
Artist reception: Friday, June 3, 6-8 pm • Artist talk: 7pm
Kayla Gustin “DUALITY”
Friday, April 22 – May 26
This body of work is an exploration of accepting the complexities of the duality of being. Without dark there could be no light, there is sound in silence & there is good in the bad. Memories, wishes, dreams, growth, transformation, spirit, human, nature…all forms converge into one space of shared energy at every moment. Each making the other, even in contradiction. This family of paintings is a visual manifestation of my desire to fully accept all levels of existence on and beyond this Earthly plane, to own our oneness & inherent connectedness to all.

Willicey Tynes: March 16 – April 16
Artist Reception: Wednesday, March 16th, 6-8 pm Art Crawl: Friday, March 18th, 5-9 pm Artist Visit: March 19, 12-2 pm
Willicey Tynes will be exhibiting a small body of work highlighting similarities between Afro-Caribbean culture
and Western culture. This is a body of works that speaks to the existing cultures and what they have left behind. Seeking and
finding these has been an enlightening experience, showing the loss of a time that once was.
International artist Willicey Tynes is a self-taught oil painter and sculptor. Born in the Bahamas in 1978, Willicey Tynes has been
bringing the beauty of the Caribbean to his canvas since childhood. His fascination with natural surroundings emerged early in his
career and this theme is prevalent in his work. To him, life is not abstract, but real and structured, and this is clearly identifiable
in his approach to his pieces. His choice of medium is oil on canvas, but he has also achieved great results with pencil and pastel.
Willicey has always been drawn to the technical aspects of painting but loves the flow and movement of color that is sometimes only achieved
by an intuitive approach. With his realistic style of painting, he favors florals, seascapes, and portraits as subject matter. Willicey has taught
himself most of what he knows about painting and attributes his ability to having a trained eye and lots of practice. Pushing his limit and
challenging himself has led Willicey to sculpting in various mediums such as clay, bronze, and glass. His work has been
exhibited throughout the United states in numerous juried shows and extensively in the Bahamas.
The Jerome Ceramic Artist Project Grant program is intended to support the work of Minnesota ceramic artists at relatively early stages in their careers, as they accomplish
short-term, specific objectives.
Matthew Krousey created work that explored our vanishing natural habitats. The Jerome award has allowed Krousey to expand his imagery, moving his ideas from pottery to large tiles, where his ideas can grow in breadth. www.mkrouseyceramics.com
David Swenson makes ceramic works through the assemblage of parts and pieces. He used his Jerome award to purchase a 3D printer and software which will allow him to prototype and imagine works before they are fully realized.
Michael Arnold is a maker of wood-fired, wheel-thrown pottery. He used his Jerome award to research native-Minnesota clays and slip-casting. In addition, he spent his grant year designing and building a wood-fire kiln in Albert Lea, MN. In addition to making pots, Arnold is NCC’s exhibitions manager.
Karen McPherson creates handbuilt vessels for plants. With her award, she looked beyond the usual relationship between plants and ceramics—flowers in a vase—and instead, incorporated plant forms onto the surface of the work itself. www.karenmcphersonclay.com
After recently receiving her MFA from the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities, Ginny Sims has been teaching ceramics at different centers and schools throughout the Midwest. She used her Jerome award to transfer decorative motifs onto majolica-based surfaces, placed in an installation setting. www.ginnysims.com
Infinite Field: January 22 – March 5
Infinite Field is a two-person exhibition featuring new work by Peter Happel Christian and David Ruhlman. The works in the show expand on the artists’ independent studio practices as they find common ground in similar subject matter and ways of thinking while making. Sculpture, photography, and painting meet together in an infinite field of conversation between Happel Christian and Ruhlman.
