FEATURED ARTIST: Robert Cuerden
I started taking photographs at an early age, when my grandfather gave me a Kodak Brownie when I was still living in England. I still have those images today. Since that time, I have always wanted to record global images of events, intricacies and patterns of our world that create emotions for the viewers. In the last 4 years, I have exhibited at various galleries and have undertaken professional customized photography and have successfully sold stock images, prints and framed photographs of people, outdoors, farming, sailing, worldwide.
Exhibition Run Time: June 26 – August 5, 2018

FEATURED ARTIST: Neil Johnston
Neil Johnston began his painting career as a production billboard painter. After a decade of painting large-scale billboards and wall murals, he worked to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in painting at the College of Visual Arts in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Shortly after, he completed a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Visual Studies/Painting from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Through his painted works, Neil often uses layering, fragmentation, and multiplicity to explore time, memory, and place – inspired by and reacting to developments in the study of time physics, visual cognition, geographic mapping, music improvisation, graphic design, pop culture, and anime.
In addition to painting, and the visual arts, Neil is a musical artist and keeps an active creative life in music – writing, performing and recording. Also, Johnston works as a community arts advocate, and enjoys participating in and facilitating creative process dialog. He has completed many successful painting and musical collaborations – working with other artists, musicians, and communities. He is a tenured Art department faculty member at Century College in White Bear Lake and has served the White Bear Center for the Arts for many years as a board member, and as an emeritus director.
Neil’s work has been collected and commissioned by private individuals and corporations. His work can be seen in the corporate collections of Medtronic Inc., Hines International, and at Century College, in White Bear Lake, MN.
