Don Nolan and the American Tattoo
Posted 8/28/2014
The American Craft Council, located on the second floor of the historic Grain Belt Brewhouse, 1224 Marshall St. NE, announces its free fall lecture series on the second Wednesday of the month, 7-9 p.m. For more information, call 612-206-3100 or visit craftcouncil.org.

Don Nolan and the American Tattoo on Wednesday, Sept. 10, 7-9 p.m. Master tattoo artist Don Nolan joins ACC director of education Perry A. Price for a discussion of the traditions, techniques, and apprenticeship of this elusive, permanent, and most ancient of all human art forms. With a career in tattooing that began in 1955, Nolan is both a rare witness to and active participant in the seismic changes tattooing has undergone in the 20th century, from enigmatic folk art to a ubiquitous form of self-expression.

Five Questions Live! on Wednesday, Oct. 8, 7-9 p.m. Join ten of the twin-cities most interesting makers and doers for a rapid fire live presentation of the ACC’s popular blog posts, 5 Questions. Each artist will have five minutes to present their answers to a series of five questions, naturally followed by a Q&A with the audience and social hour. Featuring Kent Begnaud, Lisa Elias, Mavin Freitas, Josephine Geiger, Maren Kloppmann, Nick Lundeen, Jennifer Merchant, Sarah Peters, Anabella Sardelis, and Dustin Yager.

Crafting the Spirit: Native American Art & Culture on Wednesday, Nov. 12, 7-9 p.m. As one of the first forms to exist in this country, Native American craft has subsequently been difficult to categorize. The classification of Native American craft has bobbled between the labels of art, artifact, traditional, and innovative for centuries. This grey area has generated much debate surrounding the dialogue of Native American art and culture, regarding both practice and presentation. Join the ACC for a provocative discussion from the perspectives of artistic practice and curatorial scholarship, presented by local artist, Douglas K. Limon and assistant curator of Native American Art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Dr. Jill Ahlberg Yohe.

Holiday Salon with MCBA on Wednesday, Dec. 10, 7-9 p.m. Even though the world is "going digital," the creation, collection and appreciation of artists’ books has significantly increased. In this presentation, Jeff Rathermel will discuss the historical origins of these unique publications, contemporary trends associated with the genre, and the creative opportunities supported by Minnesota Center for Book Arts, the largest and most comprehensive organization in the country dedicated to papermaking, printing, binding, typography, and book-related graphic design. Following Rathermel’s introduction, attendees are invited to bind a book by hand for next year’s resolutions! Learn the simple and versatile pamphlet-stitch book that participants will then embellish with marbled paper and a few beads on the ends of thread. While working, participants will be introduced to terminology, traditional materials, and a bit of book art history. After learning the basics in class, attendees will be able to adjust sizes and materials to meet their own needs- whether you write, draw, paint or collage. No previous experience is necessary.

Fall Fine Arts Show, Sept. 19-Oct. 5
Posted 8/28/2014
The Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA) presents its annual Fall Fine Arts Show, a showcase of more than 140 NEMAA members’ artwork for sale. Painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture and more will be featured at the Solar Arts Building’s 3rd floor gallery, 711 15th Ave. NE, Sept. 19-Oct. 5 (gallery hours: Thursdays & Fridays, 5-9 p.m., Saturdays & Sundays, noon-5 p.m.), with a free, public opening reception party Friday, Sept. 19, 6-9 p.m., where, in addition to the artwork, guests will enjoy a silent auction, live musicood and refreshments by Create Catering and Indeed Brewing, open artist studios in the Solar Arts Building, an awards presentation for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Honorable Mention, plus a chance to meet and mingle with Northeast artists and art enthusiasts alike. Guests are invited to vote for the "People’s Choice Award," which will be awarded at the end of the show. More information at nemaa.org/fall-fine-arts-show.From the Friends of the Northeast Library: "We needed a donation box and thought, "We belong to a community of artists" so it made sense for us to request artists make and design a box and we would offer up prizes to the winners: 1st $200, 2nd $150, and 3rd $100. The Friends have chosen three finalists: Sandra Brick, Carol Nagan, and Regina Walsh. The Friends of the Northeast Library will use the three donation boxes at our events around the NE Community: the December book sale, the Northeast Farmer’s Market, author talks at the Northeast Library, the Northeast Parade, NEMAA events, and wherever we are invited. We are proud to present the three finalists and have you vote on the boxes."
