The Spirit of Place: The Art of Kurt Seaberg and Family
The work of Minneapolis artist Kurt Seaberg will be presented in Osher Gallery in the Nelson Cultural Center, January 26 through March 3, 2013. Seaberg is an accomplished lithographer, who has been an active member of Highpoint Center for Printmaking since 2003. Seaberg’s interest in the indigenous Sámi culture of northern Europe is evident in the settings and scenery of his work, which display a sense of light and the seasons which readily convey arctic regions.
Kurt Seaberg’s father, Albin Gert Seaberg, was a noted graphic artist and illustrator who was born in Minneapolis, but moved to and practiced art in Chicago, where Kurt was born. Albin’s work will also be on display in this exhibit. Kurt’s paternal grandmother created Sámi-inspired needlework, and one such piece will be part of the exhibit.
This exhibit, which will be on display through March 3, is presented in conjunction with the exhibit Eight Seasons in Sápmi, the Land of the Sámi People.
