Well, February is right around the corner, and BOY do we have a lot of events coming up! Rid yourself of February blues and join us for one (or all!) of our many exciting happenings coming up at Sivertson Gallery this month.

This Saturday marks the first of our 2013 Fireside Chat series. Join Neil Sherman, Dave Gilsvik and Mark Tessier as they kick off the year as part of our Winter Plein Aire Panel: “Hot Art for Cold Nights.” This event will take place this Saturday, February 2nd at 6 pm. These three gentlemen are not only some of the gallery’s favorite artists, they are also very humorous, entertaining and charming.  Fun is sure to be had by all.  There is also an exciting rumor going around the gallery regarding this event.  Apparently the boys have a very erh… amusing entrance planned. Whatever they are planning on, I’m going to be SURE not to miss it!

And the winner is…. FOSSIL!

Saturday and Sunday, February 9th and 10th will be Trollbead Mania Weekend! Well, that’s not the official name, but you get the idea. With the Spring Trollbead release just a week ago, we have already placed another order for MORE Trollbeads to happy the masses. With new beads to view and a special deal to ponder (free bracelet with decorative clasp purchase), it is a weekend event fit for all of you Troll Queens! The spring collection is sure to put a “spring” in your step, with bright colors, seaside themes and more.  We all have our own favorite bead, but Sarah is uber excited for the fossil bead, check out her photo to see what I mean J Ladies and Gents, don’t forget, Valentine’s Day is JUST around the corner at this point, so be sure to call the gallery or shoot us an email and we’ll make sure you find the perfect gift for that special day!

Copper Elements

Our second Chat of the year is titled “Flame Painted Copper” featuring Dan and Frances Hedblom. This event is scheduled for Saturday, February 16th at 6 pm. The Hedblom’s copper pieces were added to the gallery this past summer after receiving the ‘Best In Show Award’ at the Art Colony’s 22nd Annual Grand Marais Arts Festival. Designs are created by both Frances and Dan, who live in Rochester, MN. Their Art of flame painting is a very unique process of torch work that causes a chemical reaction turning the copper into beautiful colors. Astonishingly, no chemicals, paints or stains are used in the process. The original process was developed by their family and has been passed down for Dan and Frances to continue. Their chat will be very informative and will perhaps include a demonstration!

Birch Lake Reflections

Calling all Aaron Kloss fans!! We’ve got him and his little cardinals too! Catch Mr. Kloss on Saturday February 23rd at 6 pm for our third Fireside Chat of the season titled “Through the Birches.”  Aaron Kloss is a relatively new artist at Sivertson Gallery, but man has he made his mark!  His amazing, delightful and affordable original acrylics are undeniably beautiful.  His specialties are in birch trees and cardinals, with the latter already having an email list of customers who want to be notified when new birdy paintings arrive in the gallery! Aaron is more than willing to answer questions and give background information on his work, he is truly a fan of his fans J  Catch him on the 23rd, his presentation with include a slideshow, painting demonstration and most thrillingly…. an  unveiling of a NEW bird!

Be sure to mark your calendars so you DO NOT MISS these great opportunities for fun in February!
