Cows Can Dream – Family Gallery Exhibit
Jun 22 all-day

Did you know cows can dream? ASI’s Family Gallery becomes an immersive play environment that explores the story of Sam – a cow who dreams and sometimes wanders through Sweden’s Wanås sculpture park, appearing in artworks.

Inspired by the innovative and imaginative children’s book, Cows Can Dream, with text by Jason Diakité, a Swedish Grammy winning rap musician also known as Timbuktu, and with illustrations by Maria Bajt, a Swedish artist who lives and works in Stockholm and Berlin, the book is part of the Wanås Konst Children’s Book series featuring images by contemporary artists and texts by influential writers.

The books are an experiment in words and images, with each taking place at Wanås and, like the exhibition at ASI, encouraging discovery of what is art and how we all are creative.

Buy the book at the ASI Museum Store and bring Sam’s adventures home.

Light Grey Art Lab – Iceland’s Huldufólk

Minneapolis’ Light Grey Art Lab’s Huldufólk exhibition celebrates the hidden folk, trolls and fairies, and the faces in the rocks, pools, smoking earth and ever-surprising landscape that influence Icelandic folklore and culture. This distinctive exhibition includes prints and other works created by artists who traveled to Iceland as part of Light Grey Art Lab’s Residency program. The trip was designed to expand their perspective on creative life and encourage reflection, adventure and discovery.

Light Grey Art Lab is a gallery and art events space that focuses on bringing all types of artists and designers together to exhibit, participate, learn and share experiences. Every year, they host an artist residency program in Iceland where participants spend time in the landscape; walking pathways behind waterfalls, along cliffs teaming with wildlife and getting up close to ancient glaciers. After experiencing the inspiring environment, artists then join an intimate team of makers in exploring creative practices through thought-provoking artist-led sessions in the evenings.

Nordic Table Workshop: Viking Age Food
Jun 27 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Have you ever wondered how the Vikings cooked and what they ate?

Here’s your chance to learn from an expert about the history, and find out in a real, hands-on way how to prepare a Viking meal. Then you will join your companions in eating the meal that you cooked together!

It’s a great opportunity for groups, couples and individuals with an interest in cooking, food and traditions.

Under the tutelage of Daniel Serra, a Swedish archaeologist who works with ancient food and will soon hold a doctorate in Viking cuisine, students will cook a menu from the Viking Age, working from Daniel’s interpretation of the dishes. You’ll have the chance to get involved in presentations and discuss the process, practise and ingredients, while preparing the food in a communal atmosphere.

Daniel Serra is passionate about cooking techniques, culinary practices and tastes, from the Viking age to the Renaissance. He is an in-demand instructor at many museums and historical events and an expert on ancient food in practice and in knowledge as a prospective Ph.D in Viking cuisine.  During Daniel’s 2017 visit to Minnesota, he will also take part in the Midwest Viking Festival in Moorehead.

Chromatic Construction
Jun 30 – Aug 11 all-day

Exhibiting Artists: Mary Bergherr and Laura Wennstrom

June 30 – August 11, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, June 30, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Artist Talk: Tuesday July 25, 7:00 p.m.

Artists Mary Bergherr and Laura Wennstrom both use bold colors, shapes, and composed structure to express their individual voices and achieve their respective art goals.

In her art-making process, artist Laura Wennstrom is interested in gathering materials and objects – the cast off, the forgotten, the incidental, the profound – and through combining and layering, finding new ways to tell stories. Wennstrom’s work represents the intersection of her life with the people she encounters while honoring their experiences and trying to make sense of her own.

For Mary Bergherr the act of painting is a journey of self-discovery. With every color, shape, mark, letter or word she makes, she better understands her true self.  At the same time, she enjoys and responds to the life’s often conflicting dualities and contrasts, and in the process of creating she hopes to better understand and feel more connected to humanity.

About the Artists:

Mary Bergherr

Mary Bergherr grew up in Bloomington, Minnesota and received her B.A. from The Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 1982. After feeling limited by her work as a freelance illustrator, Bergherr took time off to focus on fine art in 2003. She was greatly influenced by her children’s art process and African-American folk art from the South. Bergherr uses acrylic paint and colored pencil on repurposed wood to create colorful works that express her inner child. When not in her studio, she is walking her two dogs, cooking, eating, wanting more dogs, or worrying. Her work can be seen in galleries and collections throughout the country. She currently resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Laura Wennstrom

Laura Wennstrom is currently an Adjunct Professor and the Art and Design Department Office Coordinator at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota She holds an MFA in New Media from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2015), and received her undergraduate degree in Studio Art from North Park University in Chicago in 2009. She is also the Artist-in-Residence at Calvary Baptist Church in Minneapolis, where she has a studio space and runs a gallery in the historic building. Although Laura is currently teaching university students, she has worked extensively with children in underserved neighborhoods across the Midwest teaching art, reading, and special education. She has developed and implemented art curriculum for after school and summer programs for students of all ages.

Inez Greenberg Gallery Hours:

Mon-Fri: 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Saturday: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
