ach summer white tents dot the landscape around Powderhorn Park bringing individuals from all over the country
together to enjoy an abundance of creativity and skill that
flows through the artists participating in the Powderhorn Art Fair.
The real beauty of the Powderhorn Art Fair is that the events

teen center, music recording studio, the pottery studio and team
sports giving neighborhood residents of all ages a safe environment in which to play, learn and grow. As you enjoy this years Art
Fair, please take a moment to reflect on your importance to Powderhorn Park and our community. We appreciate you taking time

2014 Best In Show

Third Place

Emily Koehler, Printmaking


Emilys work has largely focused
on regional environmental and
modern land use concerns. From
expressive tree forms and intimate
portraits to moody landscapes and
maps, she has sought to develop a
dialogue between the viewer and
the natural world through colorful
woodcuts, collagraphs and monotypes. Using these media and imagery, she hopes to convey not

Julies artwork is a combination of


stitchery, made by hand to create
multiple layers of texture, free motion machine stitching, dyeing, needle

Merit Award

Bill creates robot sculptures from a variety of materials acquired


from thrift and antique shops, yard sales, recycle shops, flea markets
and hardware stores. The results are unique and one-of-a-kind robot
sculptures. Bill is motivated by his passion for art, beauty, post-apocalyptic movies and recycling. His bots come to life with unique personalities and narratives as he assembles them. His creative process
is intentional, spontaneous and serendipitous. His bots are truly a labor of love. Bill is a South Dakota native currently living in Minnesota.

Adam Costello, Photography


Adam has always made his photographs the old-fashioned way, with
film and paper. His equipment consists of various 35mm, medium and
large format systems, including a
5x7 Seneca City View camera made
in the late 1800s. Currently, Adams
favorite camera is his Speed Graphic
Pacemaker that he has been experimenting with making soft focus lenses adapted to fit to the front of it.

He thinks it is fun to experiment


with photo equipment twice and
sometimes three times as old as
he is and seeing the images that
emerge. Adam is a Minnesota native
who lives in Minneapolis.

Bud Bullivant Creates Wire Sculpture for

his years Powderhorn Art Fair image is by 2014


Invitational Award Winner, wire sculpture artist
Bud Bullivant. Great Blue Heron is an original
wire sculpture created especially for this years Powderhorn Art Fair. An image of the sculpture is seen
in this years PR and on 2015 t-shirts for sale at the
Powderhorn Art Fair.The original wire sculpture can be
seen in Buds booth (59) during the art fair.
In a world that seems to get more and more
complicated by the day; I have come to love
working with the simplified lines of wire sculpture. I have always enjoyed drawing and in wire I
can draw in three dimensions. I am a passionate observer of nature and a mighty storyteller.
My memory is filled with scenes and events that
I have collected from time Ive spent as an outdoorsman. I bring those memories into clear view
in wire and strive to make connections to others
with these sculptures. Each piece is a hand made
memory and it delights me that so many people
share in the joy of finding them in a simple and
recognizable form.

Submitted Photo

Great Blue Heron (2015) wire sculpture mounted on wood.

My wire sculptures are often created using one


continuous piece of wire. They are often complex compositions with the illusion of simplicity.
Viewers see the simplification and understand
the imagery but are well aware of the complexity
and challenge of the work. These contradictory
elements are often what captivate viewers of my
work. They marvel at the fact that the tools and
materials are minimal and accessible to anyone
who wants to visit their local hardware store.
I am happy to be back at the Powderhorn Art Fair
and honored to have had my work chosen to represent the show. Powderhorn Park is a jewel nestled into an urban setting and a wonderful venue
for an art festival. It is a gathering of wonderful
people, amazing artwork in a beautiful setting. We
all owe gratitude to those before us who had the
wisdom to preserve this and other green spaces
in the plan for this growing city.

THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE FAIR

What the Art Fair Means to Me

Next year, the art fair will celebrate its 25th Anniversary. It started with an idea from three local artists to
put on an art fair to support artists and to raise money
for arts activities at Powderhorn Park. Now, the art fair
is a thriving and growing part of the arts scene in the
Twin Cities and raises about $20,000 each year for arts,
culture and sports activities for the Powderhorn Park
neighborhood. This is why I believe arts can change the
world.
See you all next year as I take on a new role as one of
the many art fair volunteers.
Enjoy!

or the past five years, I have had the privilege of


being a part of the Powderhorn Art Fair. As my
last days of being the Executive Director of the
Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association (PPNA)
draw down, I have the chance to think back about all of
the amazing, and sometimes heart breaking stories that
have unfolded over this time.

Planning for the art fair is a year round process. I want


to give profound thanks to my dear friend Dixie Treichel
who co-created this fabulous event with me for five
years. I want to thank the Art Fair Committee, the coordinators, the park directors and staff, the dozens and
dozens of volunteers and the PPNA Board of Directors
for your unending reserves of support and energy.

Tome un paseo en espaol


durante la feria de arte!

By Becky Timm

I was hired in June of 2011, and my first art fair in August was an eye opener. In one short day, a quiet park
transforms into a tent wonderland with hundreds of
artists enthusiastically setting up shop. As a self-identified non-artist, I have valued the interactions with artists who are part of the art fair, and part of other PPNA
programs like Powderhorn365, Arts on Chicago, paintthe-pavement and wall murals. To me, the arts are one
of the best ways to bridge differences, speak a common
language and build community.

Powderhorn Art Fair:

Waste Watcher

Powderhorn Art Fair Staffer Avram Keeps It Green

A Green Event

By Sabrina Crews

By Liz Kraus,
Recreation Supervisor, Powderhorn Park

d like to extend a warm welcome


to all of you who will be visiting
Powderhorn Park for this years
Powderhorn Art Fair. This event is
truly amazing!
Whether this is your first time or
have been here many times, youll find
that the event is always fresh and new,
with many exciting artists displaying
their creations and food vendors that
represent all corners of the world.

While thousands of people enjoy this


event every year, it has traditionally
produced a lot of waste that we have
started to think about differently.
A major commitment that weve
made, as event organizers, is to work
towards becoming a truly green
event. As our ability to compost and
recycle more items evolves within
our communities, so will the ability at
our events.
Last year, we composted or recycled
about 70-80% more waste than the
previous year. To put this in perspective, thats the equivalent of roughly
seven green trash dumpsters that
remained empty, due to participants

properly. Thats quite impressive!

Hes also passionate about Powderhorn. In the Heart


of the Beasts annual MayDay Parade and Festival tops
Avrams list of favorite local events, and his go-to neighborhood spot is the May Day Caf on Bloomington Avenue. He also loves discovering new artists at the Powderhorn Art Fair, and plays an essential role in executing
Powderhorn Art Fairs green initiatives and policies.Powderhorn Art Fair goes above and beyond other art fairs
because we care about the environmental impact of the
event. Simply throwing things in the trash is easy. Sorting
recycling and compost is more time consuming, but in the
end, it is absolutely the right thing to do!

Wed like to continue on our quest,


so as you enjoy the Fair, please join
us in our efforts by disposing of
compostable/recyclable
materials
into appropriate containers located
throughout the park.
I hope you enjoy the Fair and look
forward to seeing you at the park!

Please join us in our efforts

Although art fair goers may need to take an extra minute


or walk a few more feet to dispose of their waste appropriately, Avram hopes theyre aware of the benefits.
Powderhorn Art Fairs waste stations keep a significant
amount of trash out of the landfill or incinerator. I understand you need to get rid of your waste as quickly as
possible, he says, but do you really want to breathe in
that paper plate when it gets burned in downtown Minneapolis? Eventually, Avram would like to see Powderwww.powderhornartfair.org

horn Art Fair become 100% waste-free. Hes confident


that someday the art fair wont generate any waste at
all. Powderhorn Art Fair participants and visitors can do
their part by separating their waste into the proper receptacles and asking questions. Stop by one of the waste
stations to meet Avram and his dedicated team members,
and learn something new about recyclable and/or compostable materials. All it takes is a little more time to
ponder where your trash goes, explains Avram. Mother
Earth will thank you for it!

Where am I supposed
to put my garbage?

Look for the green flags.


There will be five strategically placed waste stations
positioned throughout the
event. Each waste station
includes a 10 x 10 tent,
green flag marker, waste
stations banners, and three
types of waste receptacles
(organic waste, recyclable
waste and trash waste).
Volunteers will be at each waste
station assisting and educating art
fair goers about the proper way to dispose of their waste.
