81.Donna.Kitten.72

This year marks the ninth year that Reynaldo Diaz and I have made our artistic home in Studio 211 in the California Building in Northeast Minneapolis, and Friday, May 19, through Sunday, May 21, 2017, we celebrate our ninth year as members of the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA) and our ninth Art-A-Whirl®.

2017 NEMAA Member BadgeWhile my work as Textile Center’s executive director keeps me busy on the management side of the arts, I do find time for my creative endeavors, and I will be exhibiting past and current work. Recently my mother, Ruth Reichert, found a set of negatives in her stuff room (the place she keeps her stash on the family farm for her creative endeavors), and among them was a portrait I took of my sister, Donna, with kitten, taken around 1981 with an old Kodak Brownie Bullet Camera. It was this camera that launched my passion for photography.

This portrait will be on exhibit in the On2Gallery Art-A-Whirl® show, which features the work of all the artists who have studios on the second floor of the California Building. An in our studio I will exhibit some of my most favorite portraits of years past, as well as some recent fiber art work I have been pursuing: a hooked rug and indigo dyeing.

I’m most excited by the new works Reynaldo has been creating.

Stay tuned!

Art-A-Whirl® is an open studio tour in Northeast Minneapolis showcasing the work of NEMAA members.  Art-A-Whirl® is a federally-registered trademark of NEMAA.
