SweetArt at Northrup King

I’m honored to have a painting in the SweetArt group exhibit! Located at the biggest collection of artists studios in NE MPLS - the Northrup King Building!

Read more at mplsart.com

The Best of the Rest: A Delicious History of the SweetArt Salon.
Exceptional Works of Art are submitted to Exceptional Shows. And sometimes, the works are not accepted. The Salon de Paris was such an exhibition. Sponsored by the government of France and the Académie des Beaux-Arts, acceptance into the show virtually assured a successful art career.
In 1863, things changed. Only one third of the art was accepted into the Salon. A group of rejected artists and their frustrated friends began a protest. Word of the complaints reached Emperor Napoleon III, who progressively decreed it was the public that would decide the fate of the rejected art.
And so, the tradition of the Salon des Refusés was born. And we put our own Twin Cities spin on it.

You Are The Juror!
Select your top three favorite works by Artist Name and Number. Prizes for winning Artists are:
First Place $600 Second Place $400 Third Place $200
Five lucky Jurors will have their names drawn for $50 Gift Certificates for Northeast Minneapolis Restaurants!

Send an HeARTful Valentine to an Artist!
Artists love to hear how you feel about their work! Send a note to them, and drop it into the big Ballot Boxes located at each entrance of the gallery.

A warm thank you extended to the Generous Sponsors of the 2019 SweetArt Salon: Cedarwoods Foundation, Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA) and the Northrup King Building.

Additional Gallery Hours:
Saturday, February 2,    12 – 4pm
Thursday, February 7,    5 – 9 pm

We also want to take a moment to thank everyone supporting our fantastic community, NEMAA, with your continued or new membership. NEMAA is co-sponsoring this event and will be conducting a fundraising drive for the Art-A-Whirl trolley during the Opening Reception! We cannot thank you all enough, your very generous support, and the 25% art sales commission to NEMAA will help ensure a vibrant and thriving arts community for years to come.

SweetART Salon des Refusés is Sponsored by the Cedarwoods Foundation, NEMAA and the Northrup King Building
