Heather Friedli Art Opening

Artist Heather Friedli, Oil Painter. Minnesota Cloudscapes
Come meet the artist and discuss her works in person at this art opening!

Heather Friedli is best known for her abstract impressionist oil paintings, depicting her family heritage and the land in which she lives. Bold brush strokes and brilliant colors light up scenes of cloudscapes, water, and native flora. Many pieces are created in the context of her wilderness adventures; she often brings her paints outdoors to create work that shares with the viewer her experience of immersion in the landscape. Within these colorful works, Heather explores the spiritual world through the lens of culture and lived experience of place. Heather’s work is creative, soulful, bold, and powerful. 

Friedli’s show Minnesota Cloudscapes is an effort to synthesize her love and experience in the natural world, and wilderness adventure travel. Those experiences, being out in the world seeing the beauty and power of nature are represented in large scale paintings. Through the lens of her family’s native Odawa and Mexican heritages, she shows what that means to be indigenous in this landscape. Southwest meets Minnesota, she paints with a passion for the land, looking around and internalizing the colors and expressing them onto canvas. Working in a large scale is not only an expression of what she sees, but also becomes a physical dance with her painting. The movement and rhythms in these works are her own unique dance with the land around her.

Emily Quandahl Gallery Opening

Emily Quandahl is an abstract artist with a multidisciplinary background, creating in Minneapolis. Growing up in southern Minnesota, her life was immersed in the arts from an early age. With over 12 years devoted to the study of classical viola, including her formal education in South Carolina, Emily uses the art of practice to heavily influence and inspire her work.  Primarily self taught, she uses the repetition of practice and layering to influence her progression as an artist. 

Her work highlights the juxtaposition between layers of diluted free-flowing forms and opaque geometric shapes on canvases ranging of all sizes. Heavily influenced by the art of practice due to her musical background, each layer of the materials shows the growth and understanding between the artist and mediums being used. Manipulating where the paint will flow, yet letting it do what it naturally wants.

Artist bio:

"Connor Siedow is a Minneapolis based wedding photographer, whose finger lies directly on the pulse of where the most skilled and passionate people are residing and creating around him. Inspired by an early love (obsession) of skateboarding, Siedow found himself drawn to the authentic retelling of experiences through photography.

This passion led him to the heart of visual story telling; weddings. Skillfully relaying the excitement, as well as the intimate visual experiences shared in the moments in between the calm and the chaos.

Siedow instinctively operates within any given community, or task, as a catalyst for creativity, and utmost determination. Virtues that have allowed him to work in tandem with several Minneapolis, and nationwide brands and establishments that are inspired by his impeccable skill, as well as his passion for people.

When he’s not in the cities, Connor is Traveling, camping, and capturing the beauty of the natural world, some of which will be displayed in Norseman Distillery in January 2019."

GBP 16.0: Alexis VanNieuwenhze
Jan

to Jan 12

GBP 16.0: Alexis VanNieuwenhze

Alexis VanNieuwenhze is a bartender at The Silver Dollar, a nationally recognized bourbon bar and restaurant in Louisville, KY. Over the course of her four years behind the stick, she has earned an Executive Bourbon Steward certificate through Stave and Thief Society and a Bourbon Country Institute certificate from bourbon historian and author, Michael Veach.

We met Alexis last year when part of the Norseman team travelled down to Louisville. We were instantly enamored with her charisma, creativity, and southern charm. We are excited to welcome her up north to share her charm and talent with our friends in the Twin Cities.

Alexis describes her guest bartender menu by saying, "As a lover of all things true crime, I wanted to create cocktails based on infamous serial killers. All drinks will be the first name of the killer who inspired the drink and each drink comes with an interactive collectable token, just as killers take or leave tokens at the crime scene, each drink will leave one too."

Our Guest Bartender Program (GBP) here at Norseman has been a showcase of local talents who have influenced our palate, our style of service and/or our appreciation for unique curiosities. We have so much love and appreciation for the community of bartenders here in the North as well as those that inspire us from across the country. These people are the folks pushing boundaries and blazing new paths of creative distinction in cocktailing on a daily basis, making the Twin Cities a destination for visitors and locals alike interested in great drinks. 

The GBP ranges from a collaborative new face helping us launch new menus all the way into a full-on menu takeover for a single day event. Join us for this three-day collaborative menu and taste through all the creations by Alexis VanNieuwenhze.


Event is free
Kids are welcome until 8pm 
Alexis' guest bartender menu will run for three nights: Thursday, 1/10 through Saturday, 1/12!

Emily Gray Koehler Gallery Opening

Emily Gray Koehler Gallery Opening

In honor of the Minnesota State Fair, Emily Gray Koehler has dug deep into her portfolio to find works celebrating the plants and animals we grow to produce the foods and materials on which our society depends. Some of these prints were created nearly a decade ago for a body of work entitled "Agraria" which investigated the farm animals we raise for consumption and pleasure. Others are new works from her "Garden Beasts" series exploring the importance of pollinators in the complex ecosystems we attempt to domesticate. While the marrying of these works, old and new, shows something of her artistic development, it is truly designed to demonstrate our dependence on and interconnectedness with the natural systems and processes we have tamed for our survival. 

Meet the artist at the opening from 6-9pm on Monday, August 13th or stop by any time during cocktail room hours to see the show which will be on display through Sept 9th.
