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.

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.

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.

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.
