Teacher | Student
February 16 – March 28, 2021
Through teaching and learning, techniques and ideas circulate; they marinate; they reemerge. Concepts and methods – some visible and others invisible—can provide a through line in work from teachers and their students. Move through a gathered selection of intergenerational artwork and discern what was picked up, what was embraced, and what was left behind.
100 Days: Kate Brennan Hall – This exhibition has been postponed to spring 2021
Artist Reception: Tentative, TBA
This exhibition features works from the daily practice of illustrator Kate Brennan Hall. Kate’s second installment of a 100 day project (creating original art every day for 100 consecutive days and posting it on Instagram) opened up many avenues of exploration that she’s been wanting to investigate: patterns, portraiture, poetry and more. She’s ready to roll up her sleeves and see where it will lead. Creativity ebbs and flows. As a professional illustrator and printmaker Kate has enjoyed the challenges of deadlines and the parameters of projects from clients. But longevity as a maker means that it’s important to keep going back to that feeling from childhood that led to all of this—the act of playing and experimenting without an end goal in sight: just pure exploration. Kate Brennan Hall is a graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art + Design where she focused on illustration + printmaking. She has worked with clients such as Target, Mastercard, Blue Cross Blue Shield, American Airlines, and Doubleday; she has exhibited her work in Europe and the United States. Her current projects include working on product lines for the home that feature funny dogs & cats along with many other designs. The main theme of her work: she seeks to elevate the ordinary & necessary things that awaken us to the beauty all around us.
