Brian Laidlaw Concert & Workshop

Fall Concert Series


Brian1croppedBrian Laidlaw

poet / songwriter

Brian Laidlaw is a poet, songwriter and educator from San Francisco, currently living in Minneapolis. He studied Creative Writing as an undergraduate at Stanford University, where he first began setting his poems to music. He graduated in 2005.

In 2008, Laidlaw moved to Minneapolis to earn an MFA in Poetry at the University of Minnesota. His poems have now been published in journals including New American Writing, The Iowa Review, Handsome, Volt, Quarter After Eight and dozens of others. He also had poems in the Arcadia Project anthology, song lyrics in American Songwriter Magazine, and a Songwriting Consultant credit on the Grammy Award-Winning album Can You Canoe? by The Okee Dokee Brothers.

His first full-length collection of poems, The Stuntman, was published – also with a companion album of music – by Milkweed Editions in 2015. A follow-up collection called The Mirrormaker is also forthcoming with Milkweed.


Concert & Songwriting Workshop

Thursday, November 17th

Workshop at 6pm and Concert at 7:30pm

Tickets: $15 at the Door, $12 in Advance, $5 for Students, $2 off with Membership

Note: The Songwriting Workshop is Free and Open to All!

“There are a lot of poets who incorporate music when performing their poems. However, Laidlaw has an unusual approach to putting poetry and music together. Rather than presenting a poem with supportive musical accompaniment, he alters the original poem to make it more effective as a song lyric. Often, when altering the poems he looks for ways to increase repetition of key ideas in order to give listeners a better opportunity to keep up with the flow of information being presented. Brian knows that it takes conscious effort to reach excellence as both a poet and songwriter and so he keeps pushing his skills in both arenas.”

~Charlie Rossiter, Poetry Spoken Here

The New Nordic Art Show

In the Gallery


The New Nordic Art Show

through November 12th

dscn9064The New Nordic Art Show aims to integrate the artwork of numerous regional artists into the realm of “new classics,” work conceived in the belly of the mother country but birthed in the art world of today.

The exhibition, which features Scandinavian-inspired work with nouveau twists, highlights the work of Elise Forer, Kristi Kuder, Michael J. Strand, Justin Anderson, and others.



Elise Forer

Elisa Forer is a printmaker from Fergus Falls, MN who now resides in Chicago.


Forer received her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Minnesota State University Moorhead.  Upon moving to Chicago, she became a teaching artist at Spudnik Press and serves as the lead of Pre Press for Paper Source.  

Forer’s work has been shown nationally, and she is an Artist-in-Residence at the Plains Art Museum this month. Her work often focuses on iconography from her Nordic heritage and political commentary, most commonly environmental issues. Of her new-found oeuvre, showcasing dala horses or kubitsmaling, Forer says, “Returning to a symbol I cherished, researching it’s history, and spending time with it by working out new patterns and forms brought around a fertile desire to continue to make new work of my own.”

Check out her blog: eliseforer.com


Shown in addition to Forer’s printmaking are other Nordic-inspired works by mesh and fiber artist Kristi Kuder.

Kristi Kuder

Originally from Breckenridge, MN and now living in Minneapolis, Kuder has this to say of her objet d’art, “Wire mesh has a unique quality of both reflecting and filtering light which creates an illusive presence about the vessels and sculptures I create.”

She grew up in western Minnesota in the Red River Valley where the horizon stretches in all directions under an expansive sky. Distance is deceptive and space is limitless. Headlights from a distance may belong to a motorbike a half mile up the road or a semi five miles away. No curves, hills or valleys break the steady beam of light traveling through space. A silhouette on the horizon may be a solitary person, a cluster of grain elevators or simply a mirage. Few trees or buildings offer reference. Kuder has long been fascinated by the unreadable aspect of this region and finds working with wire mesh helps express that.

Although currently living in Minneapolis, Kuder is still connected by deep roots to the west-central part of the state. Farming advancements and global demands on the farmer to produce greater yields are threatening the natural habitat in that part of the state. Agricultural practices such as monoculture plantings, the removal of fence rows and buffer strips, the use of hybrid seeds and chemical fertilizers are drastically reducing the number of plants available to support this area’s natural wildlife. As rural communities expand, sprawling housing and commercial developments are filling in “undeveloped” wetlands and and mowing over grassland critical to the support of hundreds of native plant and animal species. These issues are the impetus behind Kuder’s current body of work.

See some of Kristi’s work at: kskuder.com



Michael J. Strand

Also on display are several items from ceramicist Michael J. Strand.


Strand’s work often scrutinizes the function of art and craft in contemporary society. As Professor of Art and Head of Visual Arts at North Dakota State University in Fargo, he lectures in institutions  ranging from the Smithsonian American Art Museum to The Model in Ireland to multiple universities in Brazil. In May, Strand opened a solo show in Taipei, Taiwan and his criticism is published internationally.

Strand develops projects that create bridges of communication that are enabled by the common use and/or distribution of hand-thrown ceramic cups made in his studio. These projects then seek to develop a specific history for the objects involved through experiments in conceptual function.  Michael straddles a line between journalist, social-scientist, activist and potter.

http://wildsheep.org/wild1/wild1/drinking-on-viagra.html drinking on viagra *No class Wednesday, November 23rd due to Thanksgiving holiday.

Class begins with gentle poses in order to locate and deepen breathing. Using breath, students move into more strenuous poses with modifications always offered. Poses are sometimes held, and other times flowed through more rapidly. Practice closes with deep relaxation in a resting posture. Mindfulness and compassion are the focus during yoga, with students encouraged to identify and listen to the deeper feelings and sensations of the body, mind, and heart and foster acceptance of all that comes up during the practice. Dress comfortably and please bring your own mat!

Tamara lives in Wadena with her husband and four children and is a member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church. She has been teaching yoga for 7 years and has taught college courses in the humanities and philosophy at M-State. Tamara also practices spiritual direction, a one-on-one listening ministry. Raised mostly in Italy as a US Navy dependent Tamara aspires for more overseas travel. But closer to home she camps, bikes, swims, and hikes through Minnesota’s great State Parks, enjoys cooking ethnic foods with her husband, singing in church, and spending time in meaningful conversation with strangers and friends.

yogamarketingpicC. Flow Yoga with Wendy Billie. 1st & 3rd Thursdays, 6-7pm. October 6th – December 15th, 2016. $15 for 1 / $55 for 5 / $95 for 10

Students are guided in gaining flexibility, strength, and calmness of mind by moving through yoga poses in a smooth and flowing manner. Breath is the foundation of yoga and emphasis is on linking breath with movement to build inner heat to aid in cleansing the body of toxins, leading to balanced health mentally, physically, energetically and emotionally. Class ends with a 10 minute guided relaxation or meditation bringing you to a centered peaceful state. Each class is unique and both beginner & advanced options for yoga poses are offered. Dress comfortably and please bring your own mat!

Having traveled across the world studying yoga & living most of her life on the East coast, Wendy’s heart is now in small town Minnesota. She relishes sharing her life experiences and inner knowledge with students.  Bringing a holistic approach to her teaching, she fuses 25+ years of Yoga, Shamanism, Ayurveda, & Energy Coaching. From beginners to those already on a yoga journey, all find comfort in being guided by Wendy as she helps each student find their unique way.  Her life-changing yoga classes, workshops, & retreats help people heal & return home to who they truly are.  When not on her yoga mat, you’ll find her beating on her drum, hiking with her dog or venturing hand-in-hand with her love.
