Avian Night Sky: A Collaborative Exploration of Darkness and Transition

Artists MaryBeth Garrigan and Petra Johnita Lommen invite you to immerse yourself in the celestial wonder of their "Avian Night Sky" exhibition at the Schmidt Artist Lofts Landmark Gallery in St Paul

Showing at Landmark Gallery at the Schmidt Brew House St Paul MN; along with a Companion Exhibit at the National Eagle Center in Wabasha MN Avian Night Sky: A Collaborative Exploration of Darkness and Transition.

This captivating display celebrates the fading beauty of our night skies, threatened by light pollution. Through ethereal paintings, the artists explore the transformative power of darkness. As birds soar through starlit heavens, they become metaphors for our own journeys through the subconscious realms of life. Garrigan's environmental activism echoes in the celestial backdrop, while Lommen's narrative weaves threads of the LGBTQ experience into the cosmic tapestry.
