Welcome Kristina Fjellman to the Gilded Pear roster of artists!
Kristina is a visual artist and performer from Minneapolis, and will also be serving as our juror for upcoming Juried Exhibit: Framework.
"The contradiction between static imagery and movement becomes central to my compositions. By using sheer fabric and paper, I explore how light and shadow becomes part of that movement. The fabric creates an organic, somewhat simple abstraction of the original image or theme, while the bent wire relays a tension that cannot be duplicated on canvas. This work explores the scope of textures, colors, shapes and compositions in the vast expanse of the night sky."....READ MORE

"My paintings are celebrations of the mystery, magnitude and dynamism of life, an expression of the infinite flow of light and the expansion of inner consciousness. They work on many levels simultaneously: unity in diversity, space and form, light and color, silence and movement, inner and outer awareness..." Click HERE for more of David Kupferman's work.
Very excited to have brand new collaborative works by Steve Sinner and Joe Meirhaeghe. They were generous in refreshing our inventory of works. View more of their works on our artist page HERE.

We fell in love with Randy Richmond's still life photography while working on a residential project! Stop by the gallery to see what we have left. Visit his site page HERE to see his Fictional Cabinet Cards.
"I typically use a satin matte glaze to enhance the softness of a form, which also allows for the development of interesting shadows that enhance the altered surface. These satin matte glazes are often pleasing to touch."
Cups, bowls, and serving vessels will be in the gallery next week! Perfect timing for last minute holiday gifts. Check out the rest of John Giesin's work HERE.
Welcome Crit Streed to the Gilded Pear roster of artists!
"My work is the essence of a sentient process used to survey recollection, place and sensation. It is a visual language to make an invisible reality tangible enough to arouse a moment of connection. It is nature, the nature of things and our own organic fragility, insecurity and persistence." For more on Crit, click here.
Karen Kurka Jensen just sent us these beauties! For as high as the Heavens are above the Earth diptych would be a magnificent addition to anyone's home! Check out the rest of Karen's work here.

Very excited to have fresh works from Julia Kottal!
"My work begins with a feeling of a landscape but progresses to a color exploration and a desecration or falling apart of the composition, letting go the prescribed visual references to a landscape and allowing me (and the viewer) to wander and explore..." more about Julia's work HERE
New landscapes, as well as a few goodies we've had in the gallery before, are in! Check out Fred Easker's page HERE and stop in the gallery to experience one for yourself.

We just picked up Mercy's Prairie Creek Clinic! Installation will begin the end of December.
