Art at Cafe Maude

You've got to love those folks at Cafe Maude. Not only did they buy a piece of mine for the cafe, but they asked my to hang a bunch of work there until April '08. Nice! I've got 10 pieces up and they look great in the "red room". Cafe Maude is always packed so make a reservation if you plan on going for a meal. If not, you can make your way to the bar easy enough.
Cafe Maude is located at 5411 Penn Avenue South, Minneapolis. Phone 612-822-5411 or

Openings at Gallery 13 & Fox Tax on Nov 17th

I have work in 2 shows opening on Nov 17th. How exciting!

The Gallery @ Fox Tax is opening a group show called "These Elves Went to Art School. Mini-art by MN Talent." This show has tiny art, no bigger than 4" x 4", by about 40 people. This should be an amazing show. This is what they have to say about it, "In a show of bite-sized proportions, over 35 local artists have contributed works highlighting their own style in miniature form. Being given the task to create works no larger than 4″ x 4″, these artistic elves’ creations are sure to shift your perception of scale and scope AND make the perfect one-of-a-kind gift for everyone on your holiday list."
The show will be up from Nov 16 - Dec 30th, or check them out at

Gallery 13 also opens "Ultimate Landscape" the same night. This group show of landscape work by local artists will be up from Nov 10 - Dec 30th. You can get more infomation by visiting
