Current Exhibit: 
My Realm Is the World: Stories from the Archives 2015

Through March 19

Artist: Christopher Saint Christopher
Hand‐cut Archival Paper, Fabric  Dye, Artist’s  Frames

My Realm Is the World: Stories from the Archives is a presentation of new works by Christopher Saint Christopher, a Minneapolis‐based artist known for his ornate and fragile hand‐cut, hand‐dyed paper images. The title, My Realm Is the World, comes from the words painted on the walls at the Emigrant Halls at the port of Hamburg, Germany where many Europeans passed through from the 1850s to the early 1930s bound for the United States. Influenced by his grandmother’s stories of emigrating from Italy to Minnesota after World War II, and inspired by the Minnesota Historical Society’s collections of immigrant oral histories and images, Christopher explores stories of immigration in Minnesota in his new works.


Recent Exhibit: Ecstatic Origin

In this duo exhibition, artists Edie Overturf and Julia Maiuri presented a series of images depicting the human form and spirit. Both artists’ work evoke strong emotive qualities through brushwork, iconography, narrative, and color. On view pre- and post- current theater productions and by appointment.
