Sprint-time ArTshirt Printing

Every spring I design and print new T-shirts.
Every shirt is printed differently so that no two are exactly alike.

One owl sporting a mustache and

(glasses owl pictured below).

Step 1: Eyes

“The beauty in everyday things” “Along The Way” “Conspiracy”(3 Photographers with 3 different styles)
Carlander Family Gallery March 4th – April 23rd
Artist Reception March 4th 5-7 pm
Loretta Verbout
 “The beauty in everyday things” – This show will include moments captured in time of everyday day sites that we normally pas by or do not give a second thought to, along with trying to look at things from a bit of a different angle. The majority of the works tend to be pictures of local nature, things from my own floral garden, and explorations of the nature of Minnesota, northwestern Illinois, southwestern Wisconsin, and northeastern/ east central Iowa.
Catherine Michele Adams “Along the Way” – Recently I toured the American South, Midwest, and Northeast.  I found remote grottos, grand national monuments, street artists entertaining children, shopping center escalators covered in rubble, waterfalls, and the ocean.  ”Along The Way” presents these sites and sightings in Vandyke brownprints, giving a glimpse on to the American way.
Laura Schenck “Conspiracy”- An exhibit of digital photographs of the seemingly unremarkable, sometimes ugly leavings of everyday life: rust and grime, deposits and stains, mildew and decay. Removed from the context of a clean and orderly world they reveal something quite unexpected: the art in accident and the ubiquity of beauty.
