  • "I have a love for nature and all that it represents-calm, peace, love, joy, beauty, change, and new life.  I hope to channel these feelings into all who view my paintings."

    *Artist: Ashley Dull

    Biography

     
    Growing up on a small farm in picturesque Northeast Iowa. Ashley has had a desire to create since she can remember. She took advantage of every opportunity to develop her talent, and by age nine had her first piece of artwork on public display. The beauty of nature that surrounded Ashley while growing up inspired many of her first works of art, and still serves as a basis for detail in many of her paintings. Knowing in her heart what her calling was, Ashley earned her Bachelors of Arts degree in Fine Arts from Luther College in Decorah, IA. Working today as a young and emerging artist, Ashley is located in the Twin Cities area.
     


    Artist Statement

     
    “Painting has brought me a sense of peace that I can find no where else. Somewhere between my head and my hand, the feeling of a connection to the earth and the images in my paintings come alive. I have a love for nature and all that it represents – calm, peace, love, joy, beauty, change, and new life. I hope to channel these feelings into all who view my work. We live in such a busy world where few places of simplicity and serenity seem to exist. Often we forget to slow down, step back, and enjoy the simple pleasures we are surrounded by each day. I want to be able to give people inspiration and a sense of reassurance that as we are all rooted in nature, and part of a bigger thing, faith will follow through in the end.
    As I slow my own life down to paint and let my passion help others come forth, I am always drawn back to the connection we, as humans, have to nature and the power it holds. As you will notice in many of my pieces, trees fascinate me and have become a huge part of how I paint and how I feel when I paint. The strength of a tree is amazingly similar to the strength of the human spirit and the constancy of God. Trees are always changing through the seasons and through cycles of life-they must adapt, heal, grow, sing, and dance. Yet, each day, they remain a sky-reaching pillar of strength. This peace, vigor, and new hope is what I wish to give to audiences. If I can help someone feel a connection to the world around us and a sense of purpose in this life, then I know I have done right by my talent.”

  • Baileys Shortly After Sunrise

    *Artist: Ben Bauer

    I am most interested as an artist in being inspired by a real situation and or idea and making my own reality of that specific moment, whether it be on location and or in the studio. Taking information from these ideas and making it/them lucid for the viewer which can in terms relate to a memory and or collective thought is always my driving factor.

  • Canoeing on West Bearskin Lake by Scott Lloyd Anderson

    *Artist: Scott Lloyd Anderson

    In 2001, after 22 years as a magazine designer, I left my computer to go outside and paint. It didn't take long to realized that nature never fails to reward and challenge an artist: constantly changing colors, light, and atmosphere. Cold and wind. Bugs.

    I practice an approach to landscape painting that centers around a color theory with roots in fin de siecle France. I studied with Joseph Paquet in St. Paul, who trained under John Phillip Osborne at the Ridgewood Art Institute in New Jersey. Osborne’s philosophy came from his training with Arthur Maynard, who learned under Frank Vincent Dumond, a renowned artist/teacher at the Art Students League in New York. Dumond had studied in the classical tradition at the Academie Julian in France, and was influenced by the new Impressionist ideas regarding color and light. Upon returning to America, Dumond taught in Old Lyme, Connecticut, which became a magnet for American landscape painters.

    My practice emphasizes painting on location, accurate draftsmanship, and ideas about composition that I learned during my years as an art director. My paintings are impressionistic in that they describe a particular day’s weather, light, and atmosphere, and realistic in that they show the world as it is. In addition, I use the language of landscape to express abstract notions about color, form, design—as well as for the luscious feel of oil paint on canvas.

    When I’m not outside painting, I can usually be found in my studio at my south Minneapolis home. This is where I paint large paintings, prepare boards and canvases, and store junk. It also serves as a gallery where I hold studio sales several times a year.

    Any description of my work as a painter wouldn’t be complete without introducing my wife, Kristi. In addition to running her graphic design business, Two Spruce Design, Kristi helps me with framing, pricing, hanging and promoting shows, and other aspects of marketing my work.
