The grass might not quite be green, nor the flowers blooming, but if you would like to enjoy some luxurious landscapes Gallery 5004 in Robbinsdale is the perfect place.
"Luxuriant Landscapes" features landscape work by many different Minnesota artists from the past and present.
"It’s all the way from local professors at various colleges and universities to people who were just artists in their own right," said Tim Bechtold, owner of Gallery 5004.
The styles vary greatly, from abstract landscapes to very real landscaping paintings that look more like photos.
"And you're going to have oils and acrylics, watercolor, wash, pencil drawings, ink drawings, even a little crayon drawings over here from an artist from the early 20th century," described Bechtold.
To balance out the gallery there are a few very nice three dimensional pieces on display as well. Some of the works from past Minnesota artists past are more than 100 years old.
Bechtold said, "Less than half, believe it or not, of this show are current artists. So most of them, probably over 60 percent of them, are artists from the past and unfortunately they're no longer with us."
Still their works remain timeless and intriguing.
There is an opening reception Friday, April 7, at 6 p.m. Gallery hours can be found at Gallery 5004
