HOME CONCERTS CLASSES ART EXHIBITS CLAY STUDIO GIFT SHOP DIRECTIONS CONTACT CAMPS


At Crossings’ 13th Annual Artists’ Clearing House indoor art fair, visitors can feast their eyes on many beautiful works of art, at prices that make it easy to bring home one-of-a-kind pieces. The Artists’ Clearing House takes place Fri.-Sat., April 28-29, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This indoor art fair is open to the public, free of charge. This is an opportunity to view the art of six special guest artists, who are discounting their works during the fair. Select merchandise at Crossings will be marked up to 70 percent off. Crossings Clay Studio members will have their pottery on display, available for purchase, as well.

Those visiting on Saturday, may wish to reserve tickets Concert here. The concert is made possible in part by a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

 

Participating Clearing House artists include:

Megan Moore’s work is a study of form, color and composition. Painting in oils, acrylics and watercolor, she creates illustrative images with a sense of balance and calm. Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts Movement, which is sometimes cited as a prelude to Modernism, influence her style. Megan has been showing her work locally since moving to Minneapolis in 2002. She is a member of Studiopolis, a nine-artist studio in the Northrup King Building, and lives in Minneapolis with her husband and two young children.

Becky Jokela The intense colors of her pastels capture the richness of the natural world. When she's not painting, Jokela is busy teaching art to high school and elementary students at Zumbrota-Mazeppa schools. Prints and originals, as well as cards, will be available.

Beth Bacon will be selling oil paintings, weavings, upcycled bracelets and flowers, and mosaics. She paints and creates from her home in Hastings. She loves color and finds inspiration in sunrises, sunsets, and the wind in the trees. She likes to repurpose items and use them in her art.

Heather Friedli-Ratzlaff creates art which responds to the spiritual and natural world, often times using dreams as catalyst, through the lens of her families’ native Odawa, Mexican and American heritages. Through that lens she reflects upon life, death, and spirituality. She will be selling oil paintings, watercolors, block prints, archival framed giclee prints, and giclee prints.

Gayle Weigle’s jewelry features hand-hammered, fair-trade, re-purposed metals, shell by-products of traditionally harvested food and vintage Czech glass beads. Native American heritage influences her jewelry creations.

Renee Nation is a fiber artist who will be offering felted coasters, wallets, key and card holders, ornaments, scarves for home and body, and wall art for sale.

 I am a landscape painter. My medium is pastels and plein air, or painting outdoors, is my favorite approach.

At the Artists’ Clearing House I will have original paintings, prints and cards for sale. And I will truly be "clearing out"...so most everything will be discounted!
