FEATURED ARTIST EXHIBITS
Rachelle Netland @ The Regency
Netland received her BS in Mass Comm and a Minor in Graphic Design from SCSU in 1996. In 2013, she was awarded her BFA in 2D Studies from SCSU. Currently she is an MFA candidate in Paining from the Savannah College of Art & Design (Georgia). Rachelle’s abstract expressionistic paintings on canvas are bold, vibrant and comprised of many layers and textures.
Matt Hebert @ Federal Building
From earliest memory, Matt Hebert was making marks on paper, sketches at random, artwork for contests, and images for friends and family— his primary and natural response to the dynamic relationship he’s always sensed between creativity and connectivity. He earned his BA in Studio Art and his art teaching certificate from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN in 1996. Studying the relationship between fine art and faith, he received a Masters of Arts from Denver Seminary in Denver, Colorado in 2002.
Mary Bruno @ Apiary Coworking
Mary grew up in small-town Minnesota. She is a printer and learned her love of printing from her Design professor father, Don Bruno. Since his passing in 2003, she has taken over his small letterpress print shop in St. Joseph, Minnesota, and expanded, both physically and figuratively. Mary has an irreverent line of greeting cards and more sold nationwide, and she teaches the old school tradition of letterpress printing the way her father taught her. She organizes international travelling art exhibitions with printers all over the world. She carves linoleum and hand-sets wood and lead type to make posters, broadsides, and anything that she comes up with. Mary is a community go-getter and loves to collaborate with other printers, poets, musicians, kids, other designers, you name it. Printing her designs is what feeds her soul along with travel and meeting new people.

Megan Jorgenson resides in Kimball, MN, where she and her husband JD Jorgenson operate Maine Prairie Studio, a ceramics studio, teaching space and gallery.
