Upcoming Exhibitions

Finding Place is a common theme but with unique meaning for Joshua Eller, Olivia Jenson and Ashley Kolka-Lee. For Eller, it involves personal and cultural identity as place relates to migration. Jenson’s functional pottery is created with emphasis on find a place for daily eating and drinking rituals. And Kolka-Lee explores under-examined human stories and the evolution of land use in her depictions of places within the St. Croix River watershed.

Find place will be on view August 26-October 2, 2021
