“Small Moments, Big Spaces” is on display July 26 to Aug. 23 at the Banfill-Locke galleries, 6666 E. River Road, Fridley. An opening reception is planned 4-6 p.m. Sunday, July 27.

Fratzke’s travels both abroad and at home have fueled her passion for understanding the human experience, the human form and the landscapes we all inhabit.

Halleckson’s paintings are based on the importance of connecting with nature as a way of connecting to ourselves and our community. She grew up in Minnesota and spent endless hours in the woods and lakes surrounding her home.

She researches the importance of natural silence and effects of human-created noise on our environment.

Banfill-Locke Executive Director Bethany Whitehead said: “Though their approaches are very different, Lisa and Lindsy are both drawn to color and nature and the silence that can be embodied in a painting. This show is a beautiful reflection on the meditative nature of these artists’ landscape works.”

Free tours of the exhibition are available when arrangements are made at least a week in advance. For more information or to schedule a tour, call 763-763-574-1850, email [email protected] or visit
