This Friday (10.2) Reception, Reading and Book Signing
Please join us to celebrate the release of a new book by one of our very favorite authors, Nicole Kelby. Nicole will be here in conjunction with her national tour promoting her new book A Travel Guide for Reckless Hearts, published by Minnesota Historical Society Press / Borealis Books. We will have wine, hors d'oeuvres, great conversation, a reading by Nicole, and - of course - books for sale!
A Travel Guide for Reckless Hearts is a collection of short stories, rooted in the Midwest and cultivated in the deep South. They have been featured on NPR's "Selected Shorts," and on the NPR cd "Travel Tales", and included in New Stories From the South: Best of 2006. More info on Nicole Kelby
The Grand Hand Gallery blog will keep you up to date on new work arriving to the gallery, information on artists, gallery events, The Grand Hand staff's favorite things, and more.
The Grand Hand Gallery offers contemporary fine American craft in a variety of media: clay, metal, wood, fiber, glass and jewelry. The gallery reflects owner Ann Ruhr Pifer's affinity for work that conveys a strong sense of authenticity, and that shows "the hand of the artist" at work. More than half of the gallery selections are by Minnesota and Midwest regional artists, with the balance by artists from across the United States.
