Acrylic artist Carla Thompson was chosen for the S/SGE for her boldly colored canvases of trees and shapes in nature.

Thompson Alienation 30x40 In her own words, Thompson says, “I have a strong connection and curiosity with trees and plants. I am intrigued by the patterns they create with sky and air as their background. Because of this relationship, the elements of nature often appear in my paintings.”

Thompson received “Best in Show” in June 2012 at the Eagan Art Fair. She has also participated in exhibitions at SWAG 2008, at her own Barefoot Studio in 2009, and at Northfield Arts Guild in October 2012, and for the past 7 years she has shown her paintings in various shops and restaurants.

Thompson has a B.S. degree in Graphic Design from Bemidji State University in Minnesota. For 18 years she painted murals in homes and businesses. Though she has since branched out from murals, she made an exception this year to design a mural for the Northfield Public Library. Recently, her art has sold from art festivals, galleries, boutiques, online, and directly from her studio.Thompson Altruism 30x40

“I’m really inspired when someone connects with me or my work,” Thompson says. “That’s the sunny spot in my day.”

Thompson’s workspace, Barefoot Studio, is in Northfield, Minnesota.

The Söntés Spring/Summer Gallery Exhibition (S/SGE) began in April with more than 80 pieces of art created by local artists. The S/SGE art collection will soon be gone to make way for the Fall/Winter art. Stop in for lunch, dinner, or a glass of wine and gaze upon this amazing collection of local talent one last time. Wander. Absorb. Our house is your house.

Please call us at 507-292-1628 if there is a special piece you’d like to purchase before the collection is gone. And join us for the Cocktail Reception on Sunday, September 29 to launch the Fall/Winter art.
