Today's Events

From the basement to the barn, your beloved Church Basement Ladies are back and getting busy with life outside the kitchen. After the last of the hotdish is served, the coffee pot is emptied, and the Jello molds are put away, these steadfast, sturdy women head to their farms, peel off their good girdles, and get on with their daily chores. In between picking eggs, milking cows, and dusting knickknacks, they congregate with some of the other lovable folks who inhabit this rural community: Earl, who delivers the mail up and down Rural Route One; Fergus, the hired man; and Tillie, who chronicles the action for the Fish County Weekly. With plenty of crazy antics, loads of fresh laughs, and spanking new original songs, YOU SMELL BARN celebrates rural life in the 1950’s. And, at the center of it all, are your favorite Church Basement Ladies. Whether you’ve seen several versions, or are new to the world of the basement, the 7th in the Church Basement Ladies series is a musical treat for all.

Chicago artist Caroline Kent is known for dynamic acrylic compositions that reveal an intuitive mark-making process. The Kármán Line, named after engineer and physicist Theodore von Kármán, commonly represents the boundary between Earth's atmosphere and outer space. This reference to the crossing of territories relates specifically to the artist’s wall-sized paintings that, due to their scale as well as their scumbled, black backgrounds and their installation within narrow, niche-like walls, creates an alternate viewing space that invites physical, spatial and emotional interaction. Kent posits abstract painting as a site that can be enacted upon, and this exhibition explores a diverse art practice engaging that site through text, the body and performance. Kent is St. Catherine University's 2018 Amy Marie Sears Visiting Artist. Related Events - Opening Reception: Saturday, September 8, 4-6 pm // Visiting Artist Lecture: Monday, October 15, 7 pm Gallery Hours: M-F 8-8; S-S 12-6

Melanie Pankau’s pristine, geometric abstractions reflect the role of meditation in her painting practice. Her small, acrylic on panel paintings invite intimate viewing and reveal the artist’s methodical hand. About her work, the artist writes: “I am interested in visualizing a contemplative consciousness and producing work that is laborious – embodying a deep, latent or durational sense of time.” In addition to her paintings, the artist will exhibit compositional drawings, color studies, palette records and other relics of the studio, giving viewers insight to her creative process. Related Events - Opening Reception: Saturday, September 8, 4-6 p.m. Gallery Hours: M-F 8-8; S-S 12-6

They agitated the nation, they agitated each other and today, they challenge and inspire us. Signe V. Harriday directs the regional premiere of this historical drama by Mat Smart.
