Art Exhibitions

February 17 – March 31, 2019

Finding the Authentic Self

Inspired by lyrics from Minnesota musician Dan Israel’s song “Make This Life Mine,” this invitational exhibit will feature 2D and 3D works, primarily in ceramics, from over a dozen artists around the country. Each artist is offering art with a short essay that directly addresses the exhibition theme. “This is an exciting opportunity to elevate appreciation for both art and artist through object with narrative,” states Steve Basile of Curated Ceramics.

Dan Israel is a longtime fixture on the Minneapolis music scene. He was the first guest on 89.3 The Current’s “Local Show” and has been called “the hardest working singer-songwriter in Minnesota.”

Curated Ceramics is a Minneapolis-based national platform for ceramic artists. The website helps deepen collector appreciation for artists by emphasizing them as creative individuals well beyond conventional representation as makers of objects.

EXHIBITION ARTISTS INCLUDE: Lauryn Axelrod, Richard Bresnahan, David Feinberg, Shamai Gibsh, Chris Gustin, Peder Hegland, Glynnis Lessing, Simon Levin, Kate Maury, CJ Niehaus, Michael Padgett, Kimberlee Roth, Barbara Strassberg, Roy Strassberg, James Tanner, Ehren Tool, Rebecca Zweibel
