Circa Gallery-Barbara Gilhooly's Art Opening


If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I am a huge, huge fan of Barbara Gilhooly and her amazing art.  Barbara recently moved from the Twin Cities to Fort Collins, Colorado.  However, she still has a strong presence here in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  Her work can be found at Gallery 360.  Also, last night I attended her art opening at Circa Gallery in Minneapolis.  Barbara was there for the opening.  Although I was too shy to talk to her, I was really happy to be in her presence and see all of her amazing paintings.  I took some photos to share with you.  If you are a Minneapolis local, I highly recommend visiting the gallery to see her work in person.  As I walked around the gallery, I was struck by continuously finding something new in a painting I'd already studied.  Barbara's paintings are layers deep, which is part of their appeal.  She also has a background in printmaking, which she incorporates magnificently into her paintings. If you can't get enough Gilhooly, like me, her flickr site is also very inspiring!

Hello Briana- Oh you should have talked to her- she's so nice. I so wished I could have gone- it's a long drive for us. She actually is living in Ft Collins. I have some of her wire things from long ago.
