Announcing Our Grand Re-Opening!

We are excited to announce our GRAND RE-OPENING, FEATURING OUR MEMBER ART SHOW.

 

The first chance to see the work will be during the LOLA Art Crawl, September 17th and 18th, from 10 AM to 4 PM both days.

 

On September 24 from 6 PM to 9PM, we will celebrate our return and dedicate the spaces to three important people in our development. There will be music by Up in the Attic, featuring our own member Edie Karras who is debuting her book “Lets Go For A Wander” at the show.

 

We will be dedicating the Vine Arts Center to the memory of Howard Gelb, a World War II veteran, prominent attorney, real estate developer and patron of the arts, without whose generosity and support the Vine Arts Center would not exist. He transformed the Flour City Ornamental Iron Works Building into the Ivy Building for the Arts and this cooperative arts center.

 

The small gallery will be dedicated in memory of Mark D. Roberts, a founding member of the Vine Arts Center. Mark was a pioneer gallerist, mixed media artist and beloved mentor. He championed and helped legitimize photography in the fine art world. Mark considered himself first and foremost a photographer, working in black and white photography and alternative processes.

 

The shop will be dedicated to the memory of Mary Stiff, artist and founding Vine Arts Center board member and treasurer, who worked tirelessly to make the gallery and store a success. Mary was a jewelry maker, painter and choral singer who derived her inspiration from her travels.

 

We look forward to welcoming back the Twin Cities community to our gallery! We welcome the opportunity to bring you into the gallery for a private tour. Contact us at info@vineartscenter.org.
