Artist's Statement by Steve Olson

Steve Olson (1951-2021) was a fixture of the Minneapolis gallery scene, active from the 1980's to his death in 2021. His work bore witness to the power of human connection, especially in times of struggle. This exhibition is a 40-year survey of his work, ranging from 1980's pop imagery and shaped canvasses, to his contemporary signature carved and burned wood pieces illustrating the human condition.

Artist's Statement by Jeffrey Allen Benny

Photography has always been a way for me to explore my personal curiosity and emotional connection to people and the world around me. It wasn’t until late 2019 that I thought my photos could be art. I began to probe the question “Is this objectively good or is it my emotional and physical connection with the photo?”. My first showing, at the 2020 Vasaloppet Art Show held in conjunction with Mora’s Vasaloppet ski race, began to provide the answer. The buyer of the photo said that “Something about the photo spoke to me …”. That was the biggest compliment that I could have as an artist. Since then, I have entered photos in an exhibition at the Hallberg Center and was chosen to have a 5 month long showing at North Folk Winery in Harris, where another two photos sold. My photos are in primarily two major categories. The photos in first category are of people and places in Vietnam. The second category is broadly photos of nature.
