The Art is Up! With the excitement of spring comes our newest Spring/Summer Gallery Exhibition at Söntés! Twelve local artists were chosen to showcase their work at Söntés, and on Sunday, March 30 we’ll officially launch the Exhibition with a champagne reception from 2-5 p.m. Light hors d’oeuvres will be offered, and the artists will be in the building for you to meet and greet!Luis-Grill Beach

This is our fourth semi-annual Exhibition, and well, Tessa says it best: “Our Gallery Exhibition began as a way to showcase local talent,” says Tessa Leung, Söntés proprietor. “I’m proud to say our Exhibition is still comprised entirely of local artists, and that this season we received the most applications yet.

The twelve selected artists are: Jody Brown, Julia Crozier, Scott Dalquist, Leisa Luis-Grill, Michael Holmes, C. Anthony Huber, G. E. Koenig, Russ Lemire, Randy Oas, Erin Sinnwell, Kate Taylor, and Dan Wiemer.  Among the artists, five are photographers, seven are painters (working with oil, oil pastel, acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media), and one is an illustrator. Eleven are from the Rochester area, one from Red Wing, and one from Des Moines, Iowa.

Miriam has just finished recording her new album, and will have CDs for sale at the Opening and throughout the Spring/Summer Gallery Exhibition at Söntés, which runs through September.

But, don’t be fooled by the words “through September.” All of the artwork is for sale throughout the Exhibition. When a piece sells, the artist delivers new artwork, so the art collection is always fluid and evolving. Amazing artwork you saw last week may not be here this week, so buy when the time is right and keep checking in.

Stop in for lunch, dinner, or for Happy Hour this week for a sneak peek at the art before the official Art Opening on Sunday, March 30. And join us on the 30th from 2-5 p.m. for our champagne reception, and the opportunity to meet these talented local artists!
