Susan Hensel Gallery

The focus of Susan Hensel Gallery is on compelling objects, meaningful use of materials, and engaging sculpture. It is a gallery where experimental ideas and works of the hand join to create unique sensory experiences. Opened September 10th, 2004 Susan Hensel Gallery is a gallery/ workspace presenting 5-6 shows per year in an intimate space, with hardwood floors and high tin ceilings. In 2013 the interior space reverted to a working studio for Susan Hensel where she continues to work on small and largescale artwork that engages both sculptural and cultural space. You can find her current work at www.SusanHenselProjects.com. The Susan Hensel Gallery is now both a large window gallery on Cedar Avenue, a main thoroughfare in south Minneapolis, and an online venture represented on Artsy.net.

Stitches on the Path to Here by Ingrid Restemayer

Ingrid Restemayer’s Stitches on the Path to Here gathers contemplative pieces of fiber art in a collection of otherworldly quiet, all arranged in uncanny compositions of familiar forms. Working in printmaking, paper and hand-embroidery, the artist creates artwork that announce themselves through color and define themselves through precise composition.

Every piece features as its focal point an etching of fauna, often printed on Japanese paper that is then torn and arranged on the artwork. The illustrations of biological forms accumulate into a catalogue of natural moments on the long paper leaves.

From Broken to Beautiful

From Broken to Beautiful is made up of K. Daphnae Koop’s intricate painted wood pieces, constructed using recycled materials. Her work recombines these cast-off materials into carved wall hangings that also act as a canvas for painted ornamentation.
