Located in our classroom at 711 Laurel St, downtown Brainerd. 10AM TO 12PM Meet our featured Member Artist, Jan Lendobeja. Enjoying time to focus on her two artistic outlets of playing piano and painting, brings great joy to artist Jan Lendobeja. Mainly painting in watercolors, her subject matter includes "somewhere she'd like to be". This could be a cottage in the woods, a bike trail, a sidewalk cafe, and places that are central to her Catholic faith. She both plays and composes her own music, and many of her songs have a spiritual theme. Jan will be sharing a few of her musical compositions with us on Saturday, along with her artwork. View some of her pieces on display, talk with her, and learn more about the process for creating her artwork. 10AM TO 2PM In our gallery, our current exhibition, ‘Fantastic Fibers’, will be on display. This exhibition features a selection of artwork from fourteen artists working in a variety of different fiber mediums from embroidery and hand-dyed fabrics, to quilting and mixed media sculptural and installation pieces. Each artist on display has reenvisioned what we all may think of traditional fiber arts, and presents some of the best contemporary fiber works in the local area and beyond.
