Looking for an event to take your sweetie for a pre-Valentine’s Day date? Drop by the Circa Gallery in Minneapolis on Saturday, February 6th from 6-9 pm for the opening reception of a show featuring the work of Rebecca Crowell & Maren Kloppmann.
Maren is a friend and neighbor here in the Northrup King Building, as well as a gifted ceramic artist. She shows her work in galleries nationwide, and recently received a 2009/2010 McKnight Foundation Ceramic Artist Fellowship. In the past year, she installed a nifty piece in the lobby of the Westin Hotel at the Edina Galleria (behind the main reception). When you’re out returning holiday gifts at Southdale, stop in and have a look.
This past November, Maren co-delivered a lecture at the Locus studios with Mark Wheat, the evening DJ at MPR’s 89.3 The Current. The two of them talked about the creative process, their relationship, and how they influence each other. If the work she presented is any indication, the Circa Gallery’s show should be well worth a trip. You might even get a glass of wine if you behave yourself.
See you in February at the Circa!
