LANESBORO, Minn. – ‘New Angles: Glass Enamels in Mosaics’ features glass enamel and stained glass mosaics by Barbara Benson Keith in a SEMAC McKnight Showcase held at Lanesboro Arts Center. The Showcase opened on Saturday, April 26, 2014 with a reception and runs through May 26, 2014. The showcase is free and open to the public.

Barbara Benson Keith wears many hats. Oftentimes, she can be found in her studio in rural Lanesboro, where she creates her award-winning mosaics of all sizes. She also frequents the St. Mane Theatre, where she is part of the production team for the monthly “Over the Back Fence” Community Variety Show (a Lanesboro Arts Center production), and where she is currently directing the summer theater show “Fiddler on the Roof” (a Lanesboro Community Theater production). She is part of the local accordion group “Accordionation”, performing in locations ranging from the Root River State Trail to the porch of the Cottage House Inn to the living room of someone recently recovering from surgery. She also hosts the weekly “Off 90” show about arts, culture and history on KSMQ Public Television. Her stained glass works can be found in public places everywhere from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. to Children’s Hospitals in St. Paul, Minn. and Boston, Mass., to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to the Kaiser-Permanente Hospital in Los Angeles, CA. Barbara Benson Keith also teaches stained glass classes! Her next class is a beginners stained glass mosaic class, held May 17-18, 2014 in her studio.

This showcase is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Providing year-round arts programming for more than thirty years, Lanesboro Arts Center’s mission is to serve as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages. For more information: www.lanesboroarts.org / 507-467-2446 / info@lanesboroarts.org. Handicapped accessible and free to the public, the Lanesboro Arts Center gallery is located at 103 Parkway Ave N. in Lanesboro, Minnesota; gallery hours through April-May are Tues-Sat 10-5 and Sun 11-3.
