Weekend Showcase: Hopkins Center for the Arts Fall Juried Show
Fall is the time to see some of the best new works of art featuring local artists.
The Hopkins Center for the Arts features the “Fall Juried Show” this weekend.
“Not every participant is guaranteed display. Entrants bring their work in,” explains Jim Clark, the visual arts manager at Hopkins Center for the Arts. “After that, a panel of jurors comes in to look to work over, and they make the selections of what will be put on display as well as award honors.”
The competition was tough and the quality is outstanding. Out of 152 works of art submitted, judges selected 48 for the show. Robbinsdale resident Carl Johnson made the cut with a piece titled, “Slab #3.”
“I like working with wood and other organic material. I’ve always loved wood. Wood is warm, but easy to work, with very accommodating,” said Johnson.
But there’s a variety of work on display. You can see photography, pastels, watercolors, drawings, and paintings in both acrylic and oil.
As a bonus while you’re there, let me encourage you to take-in Patty Voje’s exhibit called “Farmworks.” She does a masterful job of capturing that little hint of knowing or humor that you swear you see in the face of farm animals, especially cows.
