Swinging the Compass is a solo show, featuring the sculptural work of Danny Saathoff.
Watching the rise and fall of ice breaking up on the south shore of Lake Superior and the prospect of the demise of this natural occurence coming to an end in the span of the 21st century inspired the artist to create his installation. The centerpiece of this atmospheric environment is a wood and fabric boat, suspended from the ceiling of the gallery.
The reception will be held on Th, Oct. 24 from 5:00 to 7:30 pm, with a gallery talk by the artist at 7:00. The Gordon Parks Gallery is located on the third floor of the Library and Learning Center at 645 East Seventh Street in St. Paul.
