Upcoming Classes & Events

February - March: Steve Sack: A Retrospective 

February 1 - March 15

Since 1981, Steve Sack’s whimsical, witty and sometimes outlandish cartoons have graced the editorial and Doodles pages of Minneapolis’ own Star Tribune. Steve Sack: A Retrospective showcases the artists seldom seen 2-D and 3-D works of art that include a canvas of singing Vikings, many footed aliens, never-ending cats, a larger than life balloon hat on a curmudgeonly old man and so much more! Don’t miss your chance to see this multi-media packed show – put down the paper and head into the gallery to check out the incredible work from Steve Sack.  

Steve Sack: A Retrospective runs February 1 – March 15, 2016. An artist reception will be held at MGAC on February 19 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Admission to both the show and reception are free and open to the public. Food provided Z’s Smokin’ Bones and live music from Park Evans.

January/February Workshops:

Spirit Feathers (Adults)

Heidi Steffens //Tuesday Feb. 9 // 7-9pm // Cost: $39 Non-Member/ $35 Member

Feathers have long been symbols for many cultures throughout the generations, with many uses as well. Learn about feathers and specifically the history of feathers in healing and ritual, the meanings of different kinds of feathers, and you'll have the opportunity to make your own spirit feather to take home. Supplies will be provided including feathers, leather, beads, and stones. The most fun is seeing the personality of each spirit feather what it is naturally attuned for as it is created in class. Truly magical!

Intro to Paper Marbling (14 - Adult)

Lisa Vitkus // February 11th // 7-9pm // $30 Non-Member / $27 Member

Marbling is centuries old, yet incredibly simple to learn. You will learn some basic marbling techniques including the ancient Japanese art form of Suminagashi. Manipulate multicolored inks floating on water that will be transferred onto paper. Create unique marbleized designs on a blank sketch book as well as note cards and other forms of paper.
