Gallery features art of Sister Kroll
Sister Lillian Kroll
Evelyn Matthies' Porthole Gallery, 712 Washington St. in Brainerd, will feature the art of Sister Lillian Kroll OSF, Little Falls.
Her artwork will be on display beginning Friday through May 27. A reception will be open to the public from 2-4 p.m. Saturday and include 69 framed paintings and several unframed works. Her theme is Reflections on Nature.
Large-scale sculpture at CLC's west campus
STAPLES - A large-scale, outdoor sculpture titled Elevation has been installed at the Heavy Equipment Operation and Maintenance Training Facility on the west campus of Central Lakes College at Staples.
The theme to Sister Lillian Kroll's work is "Reflections on Nature."
The project was commissioned through the Minnesota Percent for Art in Public Places Program and the Department of Administration, with support from CLC.
The sculpture, by artist Robert Gehrke of Eau Claire, Wis., measures 17 feet, 6 inches high by 5 feet wide and 6 feet deep. It is made of weathering steel, a high-strength alloy that creates its own protective coating or patina as it oxidizes. The process takes about one year and the final color is a varied and rich red-brown.
The spiral form contains images, cut with a water jet, that relate to the site. The focal point is a heavy equipment operator in hardhat. Overhead, near the top of the form, are images of a shovel lifting and dropping a load of earth. The upward sweep of the spiral is intended to replicate the motion of the equipment operation. The balance of the spiral form, which hangs over the base cylinder, replicates the weightlessness that characterizes much of heavy-equipment operation. Final color may remind some of the color of dirt.
Centered near the bottom, framed by two fish, is a footprint image or outline of the building. Above and to the left is a diagram of elevation degree lines that may be seen in a classroom.
