A Midwinter Night's Dream
This Saturday, "A Midwinter Night's Dream" opens at the AZ Gallery. The show features a group of Minnesota women artists including jewelry designer Jennifer Merchant, who was last seen at the Walker's Jewelry Mart; designer/mixed-media artist Christy Johnson of redshoes26 design; and Karoline Wells of the Elixery, whose vegan and cruelty-free beauty products were highlighted in Minnesota Monthly's 2011 Best of the Cities issue. You may find yourself familiar with the works of some of these talents, as many have previously shown at the AZ Gallery, Lowertown's biannual art crawls, and the Lowertown Art Show. A respite from these dark nights, "Midwinter" promises to bring even more unstoppable creative energy to anyone interested in local arts. Just in time for Valentine's Day, the exhibition's opening reception, which is from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, February 11, is also a shopping event featuring locally made art, jewelry, home products, artisan chocolate, and baked goods all for sale. Food and drink will be provided by Sweets Bakeshop, Vine Park Brewing Company, and others. (Pictured: Megan Moore, Winter Tree)
