The talented artists of the Saint Paul Underground Artists League have created a cookbook and corresponding collection of visual art that will tempt your senses.  Calendula Gallery is pleased to host this diverse group of 30 local artists and their love of food and art. 

The league was formed in the winter of 2014 by two friends, Marty Owings and Larry Ehrlich. What started as a small gathering of people interested in drawing, painting and sketching quickly grew to more than sixty Artists within the first year. In those early days of the League, local members would gather at coffee shops, parks and other places of interest to create and commune.

The cookbook, A Collection of Art and Recipes, serves as a small historical artifact, a snapshot in time of members' work and the styles of artistic expression from the period in which we live. This book is a fragment of a much larger, unexpressed narrative about who we are, the lives we lead and what we love to do.

Gallery Hours:

Typically open the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Saturday and Sunday of the month and special events.
