Ken Gonzales-Day: Shadowlands
50 Kellogg Blvd W
St Paul, MN 55102
(651) 266-1030
Price: free

Ken Gonzales-Day is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice considers the historical construction of race. He supplements his photographs with research and writing that engage critically with history, art history, and Western conventions of race, blending historical tragedies with current events. Using photography and video, he explores trauma and resistance as experienced and embodied by racially oppressed populations in the U.S.

This exhibit will be a concise survey of the artist’s career, including works from the Erased Lynching, Searching for California Hang Trees, and Run Up series. His most recent work draws parallels between historical lynchings and high profile cases of police brutality affecting communities of color today. The core of the Run Up series is a cinematic restaging of the 1920 lynching of Charles Valento. Utilizing details drawn from the coroner’s report and his own archival research, Gonzales-Day chose to focus on this particular event in order to draw attention to the police presence at the scene that tacitly condoned the extralegal violence.

A survey of Gonzales-Day’s work brings up one of his most poignant questions: What is the difference between collective resistance and racially motivated violence? It is a question being asked after recent tragic events in cities around the country, such as Ferguson and Los Angeles, as well as St. Paul and Minneapolis. By presenting historical occurrences in conjunction with contemporary events Gonzales-Day collapses the historical distance and exposes the unchanging reality of racialized violence in the United States. Exploring the dichotomy between presence and absence, Gonzales-Day draws attention to the selective vision of American history and the perception of people of color as expendable. He combines scholarly research and a photo-journalistic sensibility with rich aesthetics to create jarringly haunting portraits of historical trauma present in both the people and the land of the United States.

During the 2015 holiday season, Kolman & Pryor Gallery hosted an “Art Up-Cycle” buy-back event. The community was invited to bring into the gallery any unloved, neglected or unwanted work on canvas, which Kolman & Pryor purchased for $1 a piece. In June, the event enters its next phase when selected local artists transform those pieces into new works that incorporate and build on their current practices. 

The artists who were selected to upcycle pieces from the holiday event include gallery co-owner and curator, Patrick K. Pryor, gallery artist, Jodi Reeb, and local artists Jim Dryden, Laura Hallen, Nathanael Flink, Erik Benson, James Holmberg and Carolyn Swiszcz. Each artist was invited to select three to four pieces to work with.

Price: free
Please join us for Art-a-Whirl 2016 in Julie’s studio (#128) in the Thorp Building! We’ll start off the weekend with a Friday night performance of Terry Riley’s “In C,” the 1964 groundbreaking piece “born in the blue fog of Parisian jazz” that, according to Philip Oltermann at "The Guardian," “snatches the baton from the composer and hands it to the musicians.” Musicians include Julie Johnson, flute; Jeff Lambert, guitar; Bob Stacke and Paul Raukar, percussion; Carrie Vecchione, oboe; and Rolf Erdahl and Eric Struve, bass. Performance at 7:30!

On the walls will be photographs by Bob Stacke and the hand-sewn notebooks I’ve been making out of recycled materials—in particular all of the calendars and day planners I’ve been holding onto for years because the pictures were too pretty to throw away. And please bring your little ones to create with us at our kids’ art table!

One or both of us will be in the studio all weekend (Friday from 6-10, Saturday noon to 8 and Sunday noon to 5). Please stop by and say hello!

Filling in the Blanks: Art-A-Whirl 2015 - 6:30 pm
1620 Central Ave. NE Suite #128
Minneapolis, MN 55413
Price: Suggested Donation $5

It's our favorite time of year again, and we're celebrating with a Friday night performance and opening in Julie's studio in the Thorp Building. We'll also have an open studio all weekend (Saturday & Sunday 12:30-5) , with music performances, paintings, photographs, and a kids' art table. Come create with us!

This year we're featuring collaborations with guest artists Bob Stacke and Eric Struve​. Julie Johnson​ (on flute, bass flute, and live looping pedals) and Eric Struve (upright bass) will play original work created last summer at a residency at Tofte Lake Center in the Boundary Waters, as well as Julie's "Folk Suite for Oboe and Bass."  Working with a series of short excerpts from my novel-in-progress, but without reading the whole thing, photographer Bob Stacke is working to create his own pictorial narrative of the book, letting his imagination fill in the blanks. His interactive presentation of the work as a montage of images and text will ask the audience to choose their own combinations and imagine yet another story.

We'll open the studio at 6:30 Friday night; presentation and performances begin at 7 pm. I'll be showing new and old paintings as well. We’ll have wine and other refreshments, and everything is free and open to the public … we can’t wait to see you!

The Revolution Now exhibition, curated by Ash Marlene Hane and Angela Sprunger, acknowledges women who are creating change, locally or globally, known to many or known to a few. Their revolutions may be large and loud or slow and quiet, but their fight is now. Fourteen artists, including Hane & Sprunger, created new limited edition fine art prints for this show. Working in a variety of print media - including monoprint, relief and silkscreen - the collection introduces viewers to women from all over the world and in doing so encourages new dialogue and understanding.

Bertha and Louise are wandering in an empty wasteland when they both spot an egg at the same time. Bertha wants to turn the egg into an omelet; Louise wants to paint the egg for Easter. They each try to convince the other to give up dibs on the egg. The debate turns more and more violent and events spiral out of control. The production will use highly physical performance techniques with puppetry and clowning to tell the story of two women and an egg.

The Blueprint Project, a workshop performance - 8 pm
15 W 14th Street
Minneapolis, MN 55403
Price: pay-as-you-are-able, suggested donation $20

SunsetGun Productions presents a workshop performance of their newest play, The Blueprint Project. Created and performed by Candy Simmons in collaboration with the creative team, Blueprint takes us through a modern day blueprint of what it means to be a woman in America today.

Created in part through a community interview process, SGP explores this complicated topic through a highly physical performance, layering traditional character monologues, alongside heightened movement, alongside video vignettes.

Gender and power in our modern day society is still very much at the forefront. In what ways does or doesn't this awareness shape behaviors of our community, wherever you fall on the gender spectrum? Do women play by a separate stringent set of rules or are we all, men and women, bound by societal expectations packaged as cozy tradition? We welcome the public in as we take a giant leap in the development process of this one-woman play.

Blueprint's creative team includes:
Candy Simmons
Laura McGinley Holway
Ruth Weiner
Zoe Michaels
Ben McGinley
Merritt Rodriguez

Where: Red Eye Theater, 15 W 14th Street, Minneapolis, MN
When: Saturday, November 23 @ 8pm; Sunday, November 24 @ 4pm

Common Good Books
Kevin Fenton premieres his new memoir "Leaving Rollingstone" - 7 pm
38 South Snelling Avenue
St. Paul, MN

The author of Merit Badges returns with a memoir of change, loss, and renewal.

In 1959, Kevin Fenton was born on a family farm overlooking Rollingstone, Minnesota--a tight-knit village founded by Luxembourgers and so Catholic that the parish school was the only school in town. The farm, and Kevin’s memory, is filled with the closeness of his large family. Dennis, the oldest brother, drives everyone--rather dangerously--to school. His sisters dance to records in the afternoons. At bedtime, knock-knock jokes
flow between the siblings’ rooms. Kevin has the powerful sense of being born lucky.

Soon, however, the farm is lost; the school closed; the family fractured. The family’s move from farm to city, while not all bad, leaves Kevin yearning for Rollingstone and the old family home. He begins a sometimes self-destructive search for new ways to define himself--in friendship, in art, in words--that lasts well into adulthood. And while his losses are still grievous, he begins to see new circuits of possibility and rediscover old sources of strength.

Leaving Rollingstone (available September 1), set in a time of major social change, is a portrait of the inevitability of loss and the power of choice, about how a big-city ad man and novelist reclaimed the enduring values and surprising vitality of his small-town boyhood.

Join Kevin Fenton and local literati Matt Mauch, Esther Porter and Phil Kronebusch as they read, reminisce and reclaim the enduring values and surprising vitality of childhoods spent in small towns.

Three MFA alumnae of the Creative Writing Program who have recently published their first books will read and talk about the path to publication. Amanda Coplin's debut novel, The Orchardist (Harper), charted on The New York Times’ bestselling hardcover fiction list, was selected for the Barnes & Noble “Discover Great New Writers” series, and was reviewed favorably by O Magazine, The New Yorker, and The Washington Post, among many others. Nonfiction writer Elizabeth Larsen hit the IndieBound Independent Bestsellers children's interest list with her activity guide for kids, Unbored: The Essential Field Guide to Serious Fun (Bloomsbury), written with Joshua Glenn. Shana Youngdahl's debut collection of poetry, History, Lies and Other Half-Truths (Stephen F. Austin University Press) was described by The Adirondack Review as "beautifully composed--at once delicate and stern." The authors' books will be available for sale and signing.

Coffee Concert: Vecchione/Erdahl Duo with Julie Johnson and the No-Accounts - 2 pm

Lakeville, MN 55044
Price: $14.50 ($12 students/seniors)

LAAC Coffee Concerts founders Carrie Vecchione, oboe/English horn, and Rolf Erdahl, double bass, join flutist/composer Julie Johnson and the No-Accounts, Doug Otto, vocals & guitar, and Drew Druckrey, resonator guitar, vocals, & mandolin, in this genre-stretching program. Their repertoire ranges from a Telemann sonata to a world premiere by Julie Johnson. Each group will share some of their signature tunes, and mix and match together in a delightful fusion of Minnesota roots, new music and evocative instrumental and vocal colors. Experience the melting pot of Minnesota tunes that Julie, Doug, and Drew have made a specialty - Metis fiddle tunes, Finnish and Eastern European folksongs, and a haunting hymn tune that helped Laura Ingalls Wilder's family make it through "The Long Winter" of 1880-81.
