Corey Medina was born and raised in the small town of Shiprock, New Mexico, on the Navajo Reservation. In 2012 he relocated to another small town called Bemidji in Northern Minnesota. His early musical influences came out of what his mom and uncles listened to: blues, classic country, soul, classic rock and metal. Growing up with a single mom and a rebellious heart, Corey quickly learned what the “blues” was and meant.coreymedinamic

Even though Corey loves to just write and play music, his mission is to spread a message of hope and encouragement to every tribe and tongue that has felt hopeless and held back in life by fear, shame and hurt. 

Tickets: $12 in Advance, $15 at the Door, $5 for Students, Members get $2 off.

The Art Of Labor

In The Gallery


The Art of Labor:  Working for a Living

September 8th – October 8th
Reception Thursday, September 22, 3:30-6:30

It is difficult to separate an American from working.  We like to work.  Sometimes we are angry, frustrated, and overworked.  But at the core, Americans like to work.  This show also works to show the dignity, pathos, strength, and determination of the American worker in Minnesota.

earth man webPainter Joseph Theroux creates iconic portraits of ordinary workers, using light and symbolism to portray the sacredness of labor.  Whether catching the fleeting glance of a flower worker at the St Paul Farmer’s Market or the forms of the migrant worker in the field, Theroux captures the true dignity of work and its relation to the worker.  Theroux elevates blue collar work to the place of pride and respect that it should hold in our world.  Hands and bodies and light fill his work and we reflect on the origins of so much of the world that we take for granted.  Theroux takes nothing for granted and indicates through golden light and iconic placement of workers and materials, how we should view others, and perhaps ourselves, as we labor to support ourselves, our families, and the good of the world.

Joseph TherouxjosephtherouxThumbnail

sculptor / photographer / painter

Joseph Theroux grew up in northern Minnesota among the woods, lakes and rivers. Where the Mississippi is just a creek, a little ribbon of clean, clear water winding through the bogs and forests. When he was about 11 years old he would ride his bike to a nearby lake, then make his way down the steep bank to a legendary trail that cut deep and narrow into the hillside. Out of the eroded earth he would dig lumps of gray, gritty, clay, then carry it home in a plastic bucket and build pots and small figure sculptures in his back yard. 

Theroux continued to work with clay and to explore sculpture for almost thirty years, somewhere in that time frame learning Photography as well. Educated in Fine Art and Art Education at Bemidji State University and the University of Minnesota, he later earned a degree in Graphic Design from Hennepin Tech in Minneapolis. In the early to mid nineties,Theroux worked as a Bronze Founder and Sculptor for J A & M Studios in Blaine Minnesota. JA&M cast bronze for sculptors worldwide. In 1997, Theroux accepted a job as Lead Sculptor for HSC Scenic Construction in Minneapolis and spent a few years sculpting large-scale works for the themed entertainment and hotel industry. He also created small works freelancing for the gift and collectable industry.

“Taking a break from sculpture in 2000, I began to paint landscapes in oils, and I haven’t put the brush down since. For over 16 years I’ve been pursuing a passion for painting and have sold many works through galleries, group and solo shows and studio crawls. I paint full time in my southern Minnesota studio overlooking the Wakpa Wakan (Ojibwe: Great Spirit River) a.k.a. Rum River near Minneapolis Minnesota.

From the urban landscape to the natural world I study the complex beauty inherent in the places and people that surround me. I take pleasure in exploring familiar concepts and connections we share through our experiences, our contact with one another and the earth we inhabit.”

CalebVintonCroppedCaleb Vinton


Through his years working in art, Caleb never expected photography to pan out for him. He has always doodled in his notebook–he’s written a poem or two–but his knack for photography eluded him. During his youth, Caleb was in scouts and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. As a scout he learned the arts of basket weaving and knot tying, which gave him a glimpse into the world of visual arts. While in high school, his teachers helped him hone his skills and always his art projects were on Caleb’s mind. When asked why he doesn’t sign his work, Caleb responds, “I always have a couple tweaks to make, my artwork is never finished.”
