Northrup King Building artist Eleanor McGough invites you to participate in the worlds she creates. Working on large substrates that are bolted together to create even larger environments, her paint is splattered and spread across the vast surfaces to mimic weather or other natural forces. Amidst the atmospheric chaos, rest is found in intricate grid-like patterns and the figures of imaginary creatures that dot the landscape.

Lithographer Kurt Seaberg enjoys the medium because of the foggy, atmospheric moods he is able to create. Lithography was developed in 1796 based on the simple chemical principle that oil and water repel each other, and the process Seaberg employs has changed little since that time.
Kurt Seaberg’s prints capture the many moods of Minnesota with real and imagined landscapes. Kurt Seaberg is also known for his intricate line drawings of the Sami people, the indigenous people of Northern Scandinavia. What began as a way to connect with his father’s work and his own culture has now become a useful education tool; these detailed images are combined with bilingual historical facts and dates into an annual calendar that has even been employed by some schools in Norway and Sweden.
An active member of the Highpoint Center for Printmaking since 2003, Seaberg’s Sami works were presented alongside his lithographic prints in the Osher Gallery in the Nelson Cultural Center of the American Swedish Institute in early 2013.
