FEATURED ART



Tim has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.  He has worked in the disciplines of Fine Art, Public Art, Landscape Architecture and Interior Design


In his work, he reclaims objects and mechanisms that have performed at one time.  He's interested in manipulating them to tell new stories.  Within this work he re-purpose things that are now idle;  Old gears, piano parts, typesets, parts relating to mathematics and physics.

JILL VAN SICKLE

Jill earned a degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in textiles and glass at the University of River Falls, Wisconsin. Jill currently works out of her studio in Minneapolis and is focused on painting.


Jill's mixed media paintings begin with a layer of acrylic paint and are finished with a layer of oil pastels on top. The work is then sealed with varnish.  All are done on canvas. Jill is most interested in color and texture in her work. The subject matter she uses is often related to nature and botanicals, which is directly related to her upbringing.
