A perfect opportunity to pick up gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays or holidays for friends and family while supporting a local artist!

Hope to see you at “the Dow” for St. Paul Art Crawl 2017!
The Spring version of the St. Paul Art Crawl 2016 takes place at several different artist studios and galleries throughout the city, with several locations close together in Lowertown, Downtown and Midtown. I hope you’ll hop on the Green Line for a free ride to the Dow Building at Raymond Station and stop by to say “Hello” some time during the event!
Dow Art Gallery
North Woods Photos will once again be showing at Dow Art Gallery along with 35-40 other artists, which is located on the first floor of the Dow Building at 2242 University Ave W, St Paul, MN 55114. It’s easy to get to with free parking if you drive, or even better – right on the green line at Raymond Station. You can even get FREE RIDES to the art crawl via Metro Transit all weekend!
There will be a special Student Exhibition featuring the work of a few St. Paul middle school and high school students. These students were chosen to participate because of their hard work and dedication towards the arts. Hopefully this exposure will give them real life experience in the world of art shows and galleries and encourage them to pursue their dreams.
There will also be a special “Spring Outside the Box” exhibit showing during the Art Crawl.
In addition to amazing art, we will be providing free food, beverages and entertainment to our Dow Art Gallery guests!

Just a quick “heads up” that the annual Do the Dow will be happening next weekend!
Do the Dow
What is Do the Dow?
Do the Dow is an annual event held every November where all of the artists in the Dow Arts Building in St. Paul open their studio doors to the general public. You get a chance to see the artists in their workshops, see the art they produce, have an opportunity to ask questions about how they make their art, and more! Many will offer special sales – just in time to kick off your holiday shopping 🙂
I myself will be there where I have several pieces on display in the Dow Art Gallery on the first floor. I will also be bringing lots of matted & mounted prints and possibly some additional gallery wrapped canvases – some of which are not available for purchase online. There are more than 40 artists just in the first floor gallery alone! Photography, textiles, sculptures, paintings, metals, etc.
It’s a free event and fun for all ages – so bring all generations of your friends and family! There will also be live music and free food & beverages available.
When is Do the Dow?
Friday November 13 from 6 pm – 10 pm. I will probably only be there ’til 9 pm.
Saturday November 14 from noon – 6 pm.
Where is Do the Dow?
My art (and I) will be in the Dow Art Gallery on the first floor of the Dow Arts Building, located at:
It’s right on the green line just a block away from the Raymond Ave. station, or there is some free parking nearby (which fills quickly for this event).
Do the Dow Special Offer
For the Do the Dow event I will be offering a special sale during the event hours. When you purchase any four of my items, you get a fifth item of equal or lesser value FREE! This only applies to the stock I’ll have on hand at the gallery and does not include orders from the online galleries. I’ll have plenty of matted & mounted 5 x 7 and 8 x 10 prints, a few unmounted 11 x 14 prints, and several gallery wrapped canvases of varying sizes ready to hang. I will also have one wood print on maple that is ready to hang and a few framed 8 x 10 and 11 x 14 prints that are ready to hang. Most people prefer to purchase the matted & mounted prints and get their own frames. Custom framing is available right there since the gallery is housed right in Dow Art Gallery and Picture Framing, owned by Khanh Tran. Professional art framed by a professional framer makes for an exceptional gift to yourself or your loved ones!
To see or purchase my work in person, stop by the Dow building and enter through the main entrance on the front of the building, located at 2242 University Ave W in St. Paul. Very close to I-94 and Hwy 280, with free street parking. You can also get free transportation on the green line (get a free ticket at our gallery) or metro transit right to the front door!
I’ll have LOTS of matted and mounted prints with all conservation grade archival papers, inks, and materials on hand – 5×7 prints that fit in an 8×10 frame and 8×10 prints that fit in an 11×14 frame. Many are not available for purchase online and I’ve only printed one copy of most of the photos, so stop by early for the best selection! If you buy 4 prints, you get another print of equal or lesser value FREE! I also have some gallery wrapped canvases and a wood print available for purchase so you can get your holiday shopping done early this year 🙂
Just at Dow Art Gallery and Picture Framing alone, you’ll get to see art by more than 40 artists (photography, paintings, fiber art, sculptures, pottery, and more). There will also be:
Make and Take Away Art for Children of all ages,
MN Urban Art Contest – vote for your favorite art piece and have a chance to win a $100 Framing Gift Certificate,
Featuring Live Music by “The Wall Street Orchestra” performing 7pm to 10pm Friday, 5pm to 8pm Saturday, and 12pm to 3pm Sunday
Beer Tasting by Tin Whiskers on Saturday 3pm to 8pm
I currently have six gallery wrapped canvases ranging in size from 11×11 to 12×18, all printed on Giclee archival 408gram 18mil canvas, and they’re ready to hang on YOUR wall!
In addition to the canvases, there are four framed photographic prints ready to hang. Frames are either 11×14 or 16×20.
Several matted and mounted prints are also available, which you can put into ready made frames or have Dow Art Gallery and Picture Framing do a custom framing job for you. You can choose from 5×7 prints that are matted and mounted to fit an 8×10 frame, or 8×10 prints that are matted and mounted to fit an 11×14 frame.
As always, ALL of my products are printed at professional labs who use archival inks, papers, canvases, and materials. Even the unframed prints you see in the basket are matted and mounted with archival materials. With proper care, these pieces should outlast you!
You can stop by Dow Art Gallery in St. Paul to view and purchase in person, or order from the online galleries and have the products drop shipped anywhere in the US.
I will be showing and selling photo prints and canvases all three days of the St. Paul Art Crawl at Dow Art Gallery and Picture Framing. Some of the items for sale at the crawl are not available on the website, so come on down and check it out! Find the perfect Mother’s Day gift for Mom – like a beautiful photo that will last forever rather than a bouquet of flowers that will only last a week 🙂 Major credit cards accepted.
Bonus: the Green Line is free on Saturday and Sunday of the Art Crawl with a pass you can download at www.artcrawl.org – so you can take the Green Line right to the front door of the Dow Gallery!
Dates & Times at the Dow:

Saturday April 25th 12 pm – 8 pm
Sunday the 26th 12 pm -5 pm

It’s been a very busy couple of months! Not only getting the biz set up, but I’ve been accepted into not one, but two different galleries this month! I have a single piece in a shared gallery at West Photo – no word on when the opening will be for that one – it seems to keep changing. But there is an art showing at the Dow Art Gallery in St. Paul for sure this Thursday!
See this on gallery wrapped canvas in person at the Dow Art Gallery!
At the Dow, I currently have eight different photographs on display in a 4000 square foot gallery that also hosts approximately 45 other artists of all types: painters, sculptors, photographers, etc. The art showing is open to the public and will be held Thursday, March 26 from 5:30 – 8ish pm. Location: Dow Art Gallery & Picture Framing, 2242 University Ave W, St Paul, MN 55114.
If you come, you’ll have a chance to buy raffle tickets and win up to $1000 in art from the gallery! Munchies and music will also be happening and it’s FREE to get in the door! How cool is that? If you stop by my exhibit, you’ll get a coupon code for 20% off any gallery wrapped canvas that you order online (that means any photo in any of my galleries). Coupon expires at the end of April.
