Artist Spotlight features Jeweler Johanna Berge


Thu, Aug 7th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Lanesboro, Minn. – Artist Johanna Berge looks to nature and what the earth produces as she creates each piece of jewelry for the upcoming Cornucopia Artist Spotlight show at Lanesboro Arts Center. The Spotlight opens on Saturday, August 30 with a reception from 6-8 p.m. and runs through Sept. 28. The reception and the Spotlight are free and open to the public. “For this show, I will be using gems in a more organic/rough/natural form than I usually use,” says the artist. From Rochester, Minnesota, Johanna Berge is a full-time jewelry artist and manufacturer, with representation in nine galleries throughout the country, ranging from Minnesota to Vail, Colo. and Santa Fe, New Mexico. She started the jewelry business 20 years ago with her daughter, who was nine at the time.

The Cornucopia Artist Spotlight serves to highlight the work of selected Juried Sales Gallery artists individually throughout the year; the Juried Sales Gallery itself hosts work by 100+ artists. The Spotlight challenges artists to explore new methods and/or subject matter. The name ‘Cornucopia’ lives on in the Artist Spotlight program in honor of Lanesboro Arts Center founding members, and in the spirit of the coop of artists that created the energy for this arts center back in 1992. The Lanesboro Arts Center gallery, at 103 Parkway Ave. N. in Lanesboro is open seven days a week through October: Mon-Thurs 10-5, Fri-Sat 10-7, Sun 11-4. Lanesboro Arts Center serves as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. 507-467-2446 / info@lanesboroarts.org / www.lanesboroarts.org.
