Carl Grupp and Brian Frink Artists’ Talk VAC
First Friday (March 3)
Carl Grupp is speaking at 6:30 about his current exhibition with his own artwork featured alongside pieces from his personal collection. Carl’s show is especially exciting for the printmakers in our area with famous prints from Hokusai, Whistler, Goya, but also features local artists like Julie Punt, Mary Selvig, Martin Wanserski, and Lloyd Menard.
Also speaking, Brian Frink at 6pm. He’s got some colorful, strangely shaped paintings he calls “Magical landscapes” that reference the landscape of his surroundings in Mankato, MN. The paintings hang unconventionally from floor to ceiling in strange configurations. He is also the chairman of the Dept. of Art at the University of MN – Mankato and owns the Blue Earth County Poor Farm which acts as his studio and gathering place for creatives.
