“The generous grant from the Metro Regional Arts Council gave me the opportunity to collaborate with other artists in diverse disciplines to bring awarness to the importance of the night sky as an important cultural resource.”

This current exhibition documents a mystical travelog / migration through the awe inspiring vistas of the night sky. Coming together as a collaborative project, four artists contribute their unique perspectives inspired by the magic of dark skies and as it is interpreted in the paintings of Lommen and Garrigan. The viewer can experience the stars and bring their own memories into the compositions. Like countless cultures before us we find ourselves enthralled by the mystical and celestial beauty of the night sky.

“This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.”
