Laura Andrews & Paula Gudmundson: Integrated Vision 


Opening Reception: Thursday, February 6, 5 - 8 PM

On View: December 2019 - March 2020

George Morrison Gallery

Digital landscapes and meditative harmonies invite viewers to find respite and connect with the surrounding world in Integrated Vision, a collaborative exhibition by Laura Andrews and Paula Gudmundson. Large scale images of nature float on the walls of the Morrison Gallery, documenting the ever-changing state of our environment. Slow, thoughtful music projects a state of fluidity, transcending reality.  

Minneapolis based visual artist Laura Andrews examines the relationships and interactions between people and the natural world. Shooting footage for Tunnel 2 on the family tree farm where she learned to paint, Andrews captures the melancholic and nostalgic emotions accompanying change. Local Duluthian, Paula Gudmundson echoes this sentiment with improvised flute melodies, capturing the meditative quality of being… just being in nature. Together, both artists question how one connects with our environment and how art can evoke curiosity about what is unfolding in nature, challenging society’s value on staying busy.

Andrews is a landscape painter teaching drawing and painting at Minneapolis College. She has shown her work throughout the Midwest and explains that the low definition videos in Integrated Vision evoke a painterly quality and aim to provide a sensation of moving through space.  Classically trained flutist, Paula Gudmundson is an Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth. Performing nationally and internationally, Gudmundson began to improvise musically during her travels and explains, “Improve allows me to tap into different senses and with practice, becomes meditative.” Together, Andrews and Gudmundson create a space for viewers to reflect, contemplate, and integrate the senses.

Tommy Kronquist: Medium Control 


Opening Reception: Thursday, February 6, 5 - 8 PM

On View: December 20 - February 9

Corridor Gallery

Local artist and business owner Tommy Kronquist began his design career on the winter slopes of Minnesota. Merging his passion for snowboarding with his interest in art, a company was born: Medium Control. Long before designing however, Kronquist joined a competitive winter sports circuit that included traveling with his snowboarding sponsors. Through them he was exposed to a market heavy with design fads. During this time, Kronquist gravitated towards working with sales representatives to present his design work. Eventually, the ebb and flow of multiple seasons brought with it the desire to create timeless designs, work that would be relevant for more than a season, or a year, or even a decade. Kronquist’s work presented in the DAI Corridor Gallery embodies his classic minimal designs.
