Art on the Ridge: 8005 Greenwood Ave N

Assemble Gallery & Studio: 7406 Greenwood Ave N
“BOREAS” featuring Lisa Congdon. Inspired by places like Antarctica and Iceland, artist and illustrator, Lisa Congdon's newest body of work—titled Boreas, for the Greek god of the cold north wind and winter—explores the landscape and lore of some of the coldest and most barren places on earth. Congdon, known for her use of florescent pinks, rich greens and aqua blues, gently infuses this palette into her paintings of icebergs and snowscapes—just enough to make you wonder if you are looking at a scene from another world entirely. Congdon’s landscapes for Boreas—some of her largest works to date—are coupled with several smaller pieces that reflect her passion for cultural mythology and lore, and include her own depictions of the ancient coats of arms of some of the wintery countries that inspired this body of work. Artist present.

Terra Bella Flowers: 7513 Greenwood Ave N
Jeremy Kronbach’s art is deeply informed by his world travels. From his childhood in West Africa to more recent exploration in Central America, Jeremy has captured the vivid colors from these places and translated them to canvas. His painting process is similar to the traveling process itself. As the layers reveal their nuance, some elements remain, their weight and significance undeniable; others are covered over by new information as the journey continues.
Incorporating pure abstraction, elements of cultural motif and the occasional representational object, his work reads as the chronicle of his travels abroad.
