St. John's Lutheran Church: Art-a-Whirl 2013.

Sponsored by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association, Art-A-Whirl is the largest open studio tour in the country. It’s a great opportunity to tour private artist studios and galleries, connect with the artists, and purchase original artwork. At St. John's Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, we see it as an opportunity to connect with the community directly outside our doors and would like to invite you and your family to also be a part of this event. We welcome you to come view the artwork that will be on display by talented artists within our WELS community at St. John's as well as enjoy the rare architectural beauty on display inside the sanctuary.

We are proud to be featuring work from the following artists:

Bob Averbeck "The focus of my current work is incorporating paper weaving into collages. I collect papers from a variety of sources and try to include metallic paper  accents in most of my compositions."; Jason Jaspersen "I'm a creative generalist working with a variety of media.  My creative work honors both the weight of history and the thrill of the process."; Daniel Kaniess "it is not what or how the artist sees, but rather how the artist shares the vision."; Hannah Krueger "Her focus is using a Yellow Plastic Camera called a Holga. All of the effects that you see are done in her camera by overlapping multiple exposures and such. No work is done digitally except for simple exposure adjustments and dust removal." ; Eric Ouren "I build one-of-kind acoustic stringed instruments that incorporate tins and gas cans into banjos or dulcimers, following a style developed by the Northwoods Lumberjacks in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. I also build banjos in the traditional open-back style. Eric Ouren profile; Denice Woller "From her studio portraits to the abandoned things that won't be there in a few months, she finds joy in capturing everything that catches her eye. Denice's fine art images are shot on film and she prints them herself."

Friday, May 17th -  5:00-10:00 p.m.
Saturday,  May 18th -  Noon-8:00 p.m.
