Marybeth Garrigan, 'Quadriga'


Women of Schmidt 2017

Every Sat. and Sun. from March 4-31
12-5 p.m.
Art, Galleries

Twenty-eight female artists, musicians, and writers who live and work at Schmidt Artist Lofts will be sharing the fruits of their labor at this year’s “Women of Schmidt.” Taking place in three different galleries, the show is a reprise of last year’s exhibition, which was in conjunction with the Guerrilla Girls Twin Cities Takeover. They’re showcasing artists once again in honor of Women’s History Month. Paintings, collage pieces, photography, and mixed-media pieces demonstrate contemporary visions. There’s Reyne Branchaud-Linsk’s rolled paper dress that takes on women being told to smile, and MaryBeth Garrigan’s Quadriga painting, based on the State Capitol’s golden statue by the same name where women guide horses despite missing reins. There will also be two readings/talks. “Our Bricks Came First: A Celebration of Trans Women of Color in the Arts” is on March 11, and another reading event is scheduled for the weekend of March 25. The galleries are open during the week from noon to 5 p.m. by appointment only. Contact [email protected] for weekday tours.
