Artist Spotlight 12: Nathan Holman and Jess Miller

These two artists will be in the spotlight together because I asked both of them to trade work with me and they both said NO.

Nathan Holman
While visiting Nathan's studio I was fortunate enough to get to wear one of his masks.
His masks are amazingly intricate, and well crafted is an under statement.

Jess Miller

I want this drawing.

Lets thank a sponsor.

Lets thank Home Builders Association of the Sioux Empire for providing us with materials to protect the gallery during Take the day. Again, none of this would be possible without the support of our community. Remember the name.


Artist Spotlight 10: Alan Montgomery and Giles Timms

Two fine members of the Dakota State University Faculty

Giles Timms
You have to check out the vidoes on his site. I can't wait to see what the video for Take the day. will look like!

Alan Montgomery
Alan has some awesome shows planned for 2011 at the DSU gallery, make sure and ask him about them.
Make sure and check out the DSU link below, there are some great images that I was unable to copy and put in this spotlight.

An absolute honor.

Artist Spotlight 7: Chris Meyer and Josh Johnson

An atom. A molecule. A cell. A micro-organism.
Josh Johnson and Chris Meyer are two guys that make, what I would consider to be, fairly large sculptures.

Josh Johnson

Chris Meyer

I am so excited to see what these guys make on November 13th.


Thank you.
