After eighteen months of development, Curator Beth Shadur announces that the public is invited to attend a unique exhibition, “Convergence: The Poetic Dialogue Project” at the Northrup King Building Art Gallery, Minneapolis, MN, from April 8-10, with a reception on April 10 from 6-9pm. Award-winning Chicago visual artist and curator Beth Shadur served as curator to pair twenty visual artists with twenty contemporary poets, based on the resonance of their work. The current exhibition, which premiered in Chicago at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art in February, is being displayed to coincide with the Association of Writers’ Programs Conference being held in Minneapolis.
Bryan Grose – born in upstate New York, was relocated with his family to a farming community in southeast Michigan. Although it quietly represented your quintessential Midwestern small-town, it rests just below the finger-tips of the world’s largest automotive industrial epicenter, Detroit, Michigan.
Working primarily with Oil, Bryan creatively architects a brilliant combination of soothing warm textures layered delicately amongst the rigid yet raw cooler colors Detroit so effortlessly inspires. Although trained in the realm of realism, Bryan found abstractionism a more comfortable and truer representation of himself, his message and what he wanted his audience to see.
Bryan, a third generation artist, having completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Eastern Michigan University, humbly seeks to share multiple levels of life’s stories shared vicariously through modernism, architecture, and landscape – stories inspired by industry, from Detroit to Berlin. He currently lives and works in Minneapolis, MN.
Bryan’s collection has found homes in both private and public arenas throughout the US, Canada and Europe. More of his work can be found on ETSY.

Mommsen became interested in learning more about an Italian style of glazing called majolica after she retired as an art teacher in the Hopkins School District in 2013.
In particular, she desired to work with artist Marino Moretti, who lives in a castle built in 865 in the small Italian town of Viceno…
