The Stillwater Public Library's art gallery is currently featuring the exhibit “A Tale of Art and Music“ by artist Michael DeMeglio. The exhibit includes DeMeglio’s acclaimed Beethoven works, inspired by movements of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, as well as works of art that focus on telling a story within a visual image.

DeMeglio does not limit his works to a specific medium, instead choosing acrylic, oil, watercolor or sketch as the piece calls for it. Some of DeMeglio’s paintings include an amalgamation of three or more mediums to achieve the depth of color and texture that he is feeling. DeMeglio invites us on a journey through his art – “A picture, like the written word, tells a story. Just as the minds eye fills in a picture when you read a book, my works ask the story to come to you as you view them. What do you hear? Who was there? The same concept also applies to music. The ebb and flow of the notes build feeling that translated with paint creates a whole new experience.  As an artist, I wish to encourage people to use their imagination to add another layer to what I have presented.”

As a self-taught Twin Cities artist, Michael DeMeglio has studied extensively and is inspired by old masters of both expressionist and impressionist movements to paint with feeling more than precision. DeMeglio hails originally from the Detroit area where his Italian background and family appreciation of artwork taught him a spicy love of color. He studied Graphic Design at Gallaudet University but finds his happiness in the freedom of paint and marker. When not painting, DeMeglio is a deaf-blind intervener where he works closely with students who have visual and auditory loss.

The exhibit opened October 5 and is viewable through the end of November during regular library hours. Admission is free.

The Stillwater Public Library is located at 224 3rd St. N. in downtown Stillwater. Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.

View the artist's brochure to learn more about DeMeglio and his work.

The Warden’s House Museum was built in 1853 as the residence of the Minnesota Territorial Prison warden. Over the next six decades, there were thirteen wardens that lived in the house until 1914 when the prison moved to its present site in Bayport.

After 1914 a Deputy Warden or Superintendent of the prison used the old Warden’s House. In 1941 the State of Minnesota sold the house to the Washington County Historical Society and it was opened as the second house museum in the state in June 1941.

The museum consists of 14 rooms decorated in the late 19th and early 20th century style. Many rooms are like that of a upper middle class household while other rooms house exhibits showcasing Washington County history such as the lumber industry, the 1965 St. Croix Valley Flood, and of course, the Old Stillwater Prison.

True West is considered the masterpiece of famous American playwright Sam Shepard's many plays. The play follows two estranged brothers over a few tumultuous days, examining their relationship as their sibling rivalry becomes apparent in hilarious and intense ways. Austin, a writer, works to complete a screenplay to jumpstart his Hollywood career while Lee, a charismatic thief drifter works to get under Austin's skin and achieve his own personal goals. True West was a finalist for the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It has been revived on Broadway three times and was a hit film in 1984.

True West is directed by longtime collaborator and former managing director Mark Baer. Jason Richards and Scott Murdock play the two brothers Lee and Austin, and Isaac Bont and Lynda Dahl round out the rest of the cast.

True West plays October 9 - October 30.
Age Recommendation: 15 & up. True West contains some strong language.


Reminder - all ticket buyers and attendees must wear a mask inside St. Croix Festival Theatre.

Galleries One, Two, Three, Overlook and Riverview

Field to Studio: Outdoor Painters of Minnesota Members’ Fall Exhibit

The mission of Outdoor Painters of Minnesota (OPM) is to encourage and promote painting directly from nature. OPM provides regular opportunities for members to paint together, looks for ways to develop member skills, reputation, and seeks to raise awareness of the beauty found in nature through outdoor painting.

Field to Studio is an exhibit of plein air paintings and plein air studies with studio enlargements by

OPM members. Plein air painting is painting directly from life, typically the subject matter is landscape. Timing is important to the artist as light changes quickly throughout the day.

The purpose of the exhibit is to feature the best work of OPM members and to inspire and educate the public about our process and techniques of painting outdoors. The plein air paintings may be completed paintings done entirely on location, or they may be studies used as reference material to create larger paintings. Many artists will use painted tiles of color, geographic shapes, and even scribbles when creating field studies. These studies serves as a guide and the artist uses the memory of the location — sight, smells and even temperature — to recreate enlarged completed paintings.


Atrium Gallery

Seize the Clay – recent work by The Phipps ceramics students and instructors.

The St. Croix Valley has a rich history of nurturing and supporting artists who work with clay. The Phipps Ceramics Studio is part of that tradition with an active program of classes and open studio opportunities for students of all ages and skill levels. Even during the most restrictive months of COVID, the Ceramics Studio remained safely open for former students to use independently, offering them a refuge from the stress and an opportunity to be creative.

[more+]

The Stillwater Public Library's art gallery is currently featuring the exhibit “A Tale of Art and Music“ by artist Michael DeMeglio. The exhibit includes DeMeglio’s acclaimed Beethoven works, inspired by movements of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, as well as works of art that focus on telling a story within a visual image.

DeMeglio does not limit his works to a specific medium, instead choosing acrylic, oil, watercolor or sketch as the piece calls for it. Some of DeMeglio’s paintings include an amalgamation of three or more mediums to achieve the depth of color and texture that he is feeling. DeMeglio invites us on a journey through his art – “A picture, like the written word, tells a story. Just as the minds eye fills in a picture when you read a book, my works ask the story to come to you as you view them. What do you hear? Who was there? The same concept also applies to music. The ebb and flow of the notes build feeling that translated with paint creates a whole new experience.  As an artist, I wish to encourage people to use their imagination to add another layer to what I have presented.”

As a self-taught Twin Cities artist, Michael DeMeglio has studied extensively and is inspired by old masters of both expressionist and impressionist movements to paint with feeling more than precision. DeMeglio hails originally from the Detroit area where his Italian background and family appreciation of artwork taught him a spicy love of color. He studied Graphic Design at Gallaudet University but finds his happiness in the freedom of paint and marker. When not painting, DeMeglio is a deaf-blind intervener where he works closely with students who have visual and auditory loss.

The exhibit opened October 5 and is viewable through the end of November during regular library hours. Admission is free.

The Stillwater Public Library is located at 224 3rd St. N. in downtown Stillwater. Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.

View the artist's brochure to learn more about DeMeglio and his work.

The Warden’s House Museum was built in 1853 as the residence of the Minnesota Territorial Prison warden. Over the next six decades, there were thirteen wardens that lived in the house until 1914 when the prison moved to its present site in Bayport.

After 1914 a Deputy Warden or Superintendent of the prison used the old Warden’s House. In 1941 the State of Minnesota sold the house to the Washington County Historical Society and it was opened as the second house museum in the state in June 1941.

The museum consists of 14 rooms decorated in the late 19th and early 20th century style. Many rooms are like that of a upper middle class household while other rooms house exhibits showcasing Washington County history such as the lumber industry, the 1965 St. Croix Valley Flood, and of course, the Old Stillwater Prison.

True West is considered the masterpiece of famous American playwright Sam Shepard's many plays. The play follows two estranged brothers over a few tumultuous days, examining their relationship as their sibling rivalry becomes apparent in hilarious and intense ways. Austin, a writer, works to complete a screenplay to jumpstart his Hollywood career while Lee, a charismatic thief drifter works to get under Austin's skin and achieve his own personal goals. True West was a finalist for the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It has been revived on Broadway three times and was a hit film in 1984.

True West is directed by longtime collaborator and former managing director Mark Baer. Jason Richards and Scott Murdock play the two brothers Lee and Austin, and Isaac Bont and Lynda Dahl round out the rest of the cast.

True West plays October 9 - October 30.
Age Recommendation: 15 & up. True West contains some strong language.


Reminder - all ticket buyers and attendees must wear a mask inside St. Croix Festival Theatre.

Galleries One, Two, Three, Overlook and Riverview

Field to Studio: Outdoor Painters of Minnesota Members’ Fall Exhibit

The mission of Outdoor Painters of Minnesota (OPM) is to encourage and promote painting directly from nature. OPM provides regular opportunities for members to paint together, looks for ways to develop member skills, reputation, and seeks to raise awareness of the beauty found in nature through outdoor painting.

Field to Studio is an exhibit of plein air paintings and plein air studies with studio enlargements by

OPM members. Plein air painting is painting directly from life, typically the subject matter is landscape. Timing is important to the artist as light changes quickly throughout the day.

The purpose of the exhibit is to feature the best work of OPM members and to inspire and educate the public about our process and techniques of painting outdoors. The plein air paintings may be completed paintings done entirely on location, or they may be studies used as reference material to create larger paintings. Many artists will use painted tiles of color, geographic shapes, and even scribbles when creating field studies. These studies serves as a guide and the artist uses the memory of the location — sight, smells and even temperature — to recreate enlarged completed paintings.


Atrium Gallery

Seize the Clay – recent work by The Phipps ceramics students and instructors.

The St. Croix Valley has a rich history of nurturing and supporting artists who work with clay. The Phipps Ceramics Studio is part of that tradition with an active program of classes and open studio opportunities for students of all ages and skill levels. Even during the most restrictive months of COVID, the Ceramics Studio remained safely open for former students to use independently, offering them a refuge from the stress and an opportunity to be creative.

Stories come alive for children when they are read to aloud.  Stillwater Trolley is again partnering with Valley Bookseller to bring back StoryTime Trolley.

Dolly the trolley will pick riders up at Valley Bookseller at 10:30 am. When you check in, you will receive a token. The token serves as your ticket to board the trolley and is good for a snack (from Candyland!) and 20% off a children’s book when your adventure is over.

The trolley will take you up to Pioneer Park where a storyteller will read several stories. When story time is over, you will be treated to a trolley ride around Stillwater, then it’s back to the bookstore for that snack.
