Larry Ehrlich

"I want to tell you a story.  I want to show you the stark beauty of winter in the city, bitter wind whipping down a snow covered street, the promise of hot coffee through a frost cloaked window.  I want to show you children playing baseball on a warm summer evening, shadows growing longer as the game nears its inevitable end.  I want to show you a fancy-dressed madman muttering puzzling confidences, oblivious to the world around him as he steadfastly walks toward his inexorable destination.  I want to vividly depict the period in which we live, because one day this time and place will melt and disappear, like snow in spring, and only we will have been there.  I want to tell you a story."

Larry Ehrlich is a St. Paul artist who uses several media to draw the world wherever he goes.


Lori Tapani - Acrylic Painting - Exhibit on display through June 9th

“There’s something very exciting and magical about beginning a painting with colors I love, marks I enjoy making, and few restrictions…. and gradually discovering what it wants to become.” I am a life-long lover of creating artwork in many different mediums, and in 2013 was introduced to acrylic paint and an intuitive process for painting. My acrylic and mixed media paintings are sparkling with color, texture, and imagery from nature. I hope that people who see my work experience the same joy I felt in creating it.

You can see a few samples of Lori's work on her website at:


Val Bolen - Mosaic - Exhibit on display through June 9th

"Living in a huge meadow, amongst the pines in Northern Minnesota, I find my inspiration from nature. In addition, the many artists and art movements of the past guide me.

I love making art that is able to make people happy, if only in small ways."
