Covet’s current show features the latest work by Emily Lynch Victory. Emily creates systematic rules, applies repeated geometric shapes and layers multiple patterns to fill wooden panels.
About Amy Rice:
“I use nontraditional print-making methods–including hand cut stencils and a Japanese screen printing toy called a Gocco printer–as a starting point for original mixed media pieces. I use spray paint, acrylics, gouache, and inks, and print on a variety of surfaces including wood, fabric and antique papers (preferring handwritten love letters, envelopes, journal pages, sheet music and maps).
I am most satisfied when I can make a tangible or visceral connection between the materials used and the image rendered. My work is deeply layered, often both literally and figuratively. My imagery–nostalgic and wistful–is largely biographical and reflective of my pensive nature.
I am as inspired in my art as much by childhood memories of growing up on a Midwestern farm as I am the urban community in which I now live. I am influenced by bicycles, street art, gardening, and random found objects, collective endeavors that challenge hierarchy, acts of compassion, downright silliness, and things with wings.”
Our Second Thursday Art Series has been a lot of fun the last 2 1/2 years. We have featured 38 local artists and have hosted 33 art openings. It’s been a great ride, but it’s time to change things up a bit!
Coming in 2015 we will still have artwork on the gallery wall by our featured artist, but we’re stirring up some fresh ideas for future events. Stay tuned….

Our 3rd Annual Group Art Show is quickly approaching! This year will be bigger than ever, with over 15 local artists showing artwork, all under $100. Opening reception Thurs. Dec. 11th, 6-9pm
For the solo exhibition Samuel Bjorgum 35 Paintings Covet Consign and Design presents a selection of work from 2013 – 2014, that result from engagements with color through controlled emotional release. This group of paintings arose through subtle innovations in an approach to painting that combines planning with improvisation, to contribute toward a varied and compelling visual experience.
Samuel Bjorgum lives and works as a visual artist in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His paintings have been featured in the two person exhibition Paint No Wrong Paint No Right at TuckUnder Projects, Minnesota (2014), and in the solo exhibition Aporias at A Gathering of The Tribes Gallery, New York (2010). He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from the University of Minnesota in 1999.
Opening Reception Thursday November 13th 6 – 9 pm

2ND THURSDAYS = look at some art, meet the current featured artist and shop home goods! This month we will be featuring the artwork of Nanci Yermakoff.
“My paintings have always walked a line between representation and abstraction. For many years I’ve focused on color, light, and space in my watercolors. The horizon line has been a constant in my work and, as a result, the paintings read as landscapes. Most recently I’ve begun to explore a different direction and am working non-objectively. My focus is on shape, edges, layering, and, most unfamiliar to my work, line and opaque pigments. This show consists of a number of my traditional ‘horizon’ pieces along with some newer, experimental pieces.” – Nanci Yermakoff
