First Thurs. March 7 - New Work Debut!

I know I keep posting about First Thursday. But they keep happening! Every month!

Here we are again, with another First Thursday in the Arts District a little more than a week away.
Q: What’s so special about this one? A: New work debut!

A few months ago I posted a note about receiving an Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. With the resources that grant provided, I’ve been able to create some new work that I’m really excited about. I’ve done a ton of new etchings. And, in typical fashion I’ve been working the images into larger paper & stitched collage pieces – lots of color, lots and lots of French knots. I’ll be previewing some of my favorites from this new body of work at First Thursday on March 7th, 5-9pm. Some more details about First Thursday below…

First Thursday Open Studio Crawl is a free monthly exploration of the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District, centralized in the Northrup King Building. During the long history of the building and its hundreds of studios it has served as a haven of creativity and the place to find many famous artists at work. The Art Crawl is an event to help local artists offer their wares and interact directly with the public.
And oh yeah, there’s free parking.

Ingrid Restemayer Studio is studio 401-b, in the Northrup King Building,

Ingrid Restemayer is a fiscal year 2012 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible in part by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
