Fire Clay in Transition / Jason Trebs
Aug

to Aug 31

Fire Clay in Transition / Jason Trebs

Reception: Friday, August 2, 5–7 p.m.

After growing up in Bigfork and then spending the next 16 years in St. Paul, Jason Trebs is now settling into his new home and studio on the North Shore of Lake Superior.


”I'm certain my draw to the Lake is rooted in my childhood spent growing up in the Bigfork area. Returning to the woods in adulthood is a complete rediscovery of the many things I took for granted as a kid.

A bit of an outlier, I have always gravitated toward a do-it-yourself ethic and have found it rewarding to have built a career out of making things. Clay is my favorite channel. I love it more now than when I started.

I try to express an idea through straightforward simple monolithic shapes and mono glazing. I want the making of each pot to take on a new direction while still relating too the ones that were made before and after it. It is my aim to make quiet forms that have a strong presence.”

Betsy Bowen / Block Prints

Betsy Bowen poster.jpg

Betsy Bowen is an award-winning woodcut artist and author who will be exhibiting her bright, bold woodcuts at the Edge this month. Her extraordinary work pulses with the feeling of Northern Minnesota and highlights our northern lifestyle and history.

Bowen is also the author of Antler, Bear, Canoe, a delightful book that carries young readers through the four seasons in an "ABC" format. The author will be reading to Bigfork's kindergarten through third-grade students, and (thanks to the generosity of the patrons at the Wine in the Wilderness fundraiser!) Bigfork School's kindergarten, first-grade, and second-grade students will each receive their own copy of Antler, Bear, Canoe.

Please join us in welcoming the artist at Friday's reception!

Baskets from the Edge: Antler, Ash & Willow
Aug
2
to Sep 1

Baskets from the Edge: Antler, Ash & Willow

Featuring Jacki Bedworth, Fred Kogler, and Cathryn Peters


Willow basketmaker Jacki Bedworth, black ash basketweaver Fred Kogler, and antler basketweaver Cathryn Peters will each demonstrate their basketweaving techniques at the opening reception on Friday, August 3rd!

Join us for a fun evening of refreshments, weaving, and visiting with the artists.

Willow weaver Jacki Bedworth strides forth into the Red Willows every spring to gather materials for her traditional basketry. Items of everyday usage are then transformed into sublime pieces of ingenuity and art.

Fred Kogler takes logs of ash, strips them, polishes them, and weaves them into baskets artfully and individually designed for a variety of uses, from berries to bread.  Fred has mastered the art of the Shakers and the “lightship weavers” who spent their days at sea weaving ash baskets. His sophisticated display and delight in sharing his passion art and history of baskets will delight and inform.

Cathryn Peters skillfully transforms basketry into decorative, award-winning designs, incorporating bold colors and shed antlers in ways that delight the eye and demonstrate the broad range of what basketry can be.  Her recent entry into the gallery’s juried art show drew oohs and aahs from the crowd and kudos from the juror.

These three master weavers will be sharing their skills, answering your questions at an open house reception on August 3 from 5 to 7 P.M.  The gallery is delighted to present this exhibit of these local master weavers for your education and enjoyment.  This is an evening you don’t want to miss.
