Homewood Studios, 2400 Plymouth Ave. N, is currently hosting a gallery exhibition of work by Charlotte Schuld, who paints landscapes, usually acrylic on canvas. She prefers "Amplified Realism," which walks the line between Realism and Impressionism and creates strong visual statements with large-sized canvases and triptychs that pull the viewer into the scene, leaving an "I want to be there!" feeling. The exhibit has been extended and will run through July 8. After that, the gallery will display works from their permanent collection through the end of the month.
A "Talkabout" with author and English Literature Professor Emeritus (U of M) Toni McNaron is scheduled for Saturday, July 12, 2 p.m. During the talk hosted by Julie Landsman, McNaron will discuss her recently-published spiritual memoir, Into the Paradox: Conservative Spirit, Feminist Politics. In this work, McNaron describes the contradictory path she has chosen around the practice of her faith. Though many policies of the Roman Catholic Church anger and disturb her, Toni nonetheless finds worshiping at the Basilica of St. Mary in downtown Minneapolis genuinely nourishing to her spirit. She describes in her memoir her long journey inside and outside organized religion to arrive in her mid-seventies at a place of calm and peace with the God of her understanding.
Homewood also hosts the Northside Writers Group, which meets monthly (usually the second Thursday of the month) In July and August, however, the group will meet on the third Thursday, (July 17, Aug. 21), 7 p.m.
The Homewood Tai Chi group meets Saturdays, 9-10:30 a.m. For more info, call Beverly Roberts at 612-588-3723 or e-mail email@example.com.
