FEATURED ARTIST: RORY WAKEMUP “Darth Chief, Buffalo Thunder Trooper, Smart Wars Resistance Troopers”

St. Paul-based artist Rory Wakemup exhibited at the Rochester Art Center’s “Andy Warhol, MN GOES POP” in 2017 where ArtWorks Festival volunteers were impressed with his sculptures mixing iconography from his Anishinabe heritage, an eclectic range of Pan-American Indian regalia and iconography from the Star Wars universe. Wakemup was selected to be the 2019 Featured Artist by a committee of ArtWorks Festival volunteers from a pool of fourteen nominated artists. Wakemup earned a Master of Fine Arts in Glass/Sculpture from the University of Wisconsin - Madison and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jewelry, Photography, Printmaking and 2019 Featured Artist Sculpture from the Rory Wakemup Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He won the University of Wisconsin-Madison Chazen Museum Prize in 2015 for his exhibition, “Kill the Idiot, Save the Fan,” a reference to the 19th century phrase “Kill the Indian, Save the Man” which summarized the purpose of U.S. government boarding schools for native children. Wakemup won grant funding from the Minnesota State Arts Board, Forecast Public Art, Hennepin Theatre Trust and SpringBoard for the Arts. Wakemup’s work will be exhibited at the Austin ArtWorks Center 2nd Floor Gallery during the Austin ArtWorks Festival and the artist will be present to greet visitors. He will make a brief presentation about his work on Saturday, August 24 at noon at the Austin ArtWorks Center.

ARTWORKS CENTER: TRUNK SHOW Meet these artists and learn about their creative process at the Austin ArtWorks Center retail space.

ANN MADLAND OF LANESBORO, MN “I started creating jewelry when I was young, by taking vintage jewelry pieces and sewing them onto fabric to create chokers,” explains Ann Madland. A master of metal smithing, Madland has been designing and creating jewelry for over 20 years. Ann creates her sterling silver, hand made pieces in Lanesboro, Minnesota. They are available in small retailers in five other states and on her web site annmadland.com. Ann also creates custom jewelry in collaboration with her customers. “My jewelry became a part of who I was. I envisioned jewelry as an art form, and to this day I create beautiful, magical, wearable art,” says Ann. She’s inspired by dreams, magic and nature and her work is embedded with her positive energy. Try a piece for yourself and experience a feeling of confidence, beauty and abundance.

ANN MADLAND

LISA TRUAX OF PICKWICK, MN

Lisa’s pottery is a favorite of Austin ArtWorks customers because it is functional, decorative and often whimsical. Originally from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, she studied studio art, graphic design, and ceramics at Carthage College and Michigan State University. She currently lives in Pickwick, outside of Winona, Minnesota, where she maintains her studio. “I create work that is intended to add to the home, whether through use or decoration,” says Lisa. “Work is created by hand, either on the pottery wheel or through slip casting porcelain with original handmade molds. All glazes are custom made as well, with a focus on food safety, color, and durability.”

YOUTH EXHIBIT

LISA TRUAX

SPONSORED BY

Students at each show were awarded the ArtWorks Festival Award blue ribbon and were invited to exhibit work at the Austin ArtWorks Festival. Sponsors Potach & Mitchell are providing a prize pool for Youth Exhibit awards which will be posted on August 24 and announced on the outdoor stage at 4 p.m. In 2018, the Youth Exhibit Best in Show awards went to Rosie Meh (elementary), Lauren Murphy (middle school) and Cynder Higgins (high school).

SCHINDLER CELEBRATION: MAX WEINBERG’S JUKEBOX Max Weinberg’s Jukebox will take the stage of the Paramount Theatre for the 5th Annual Schindler Celebration on Saturday, August 24. The 7 p.m. concert is the centerpiece of the Austin ArtWorks Festival and is sponsored by Mayo Clinic Health System to celebrate the life of family physician Dr. Dick Schindler who practiced medicine for over 40 years and passed away in 2014. Max Weinberg is an American drummer and television personality, most widely known as the longtime drummer for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and as the bandleader for Conan O’Brien on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.

“It’s not a concert, it’s a party,” Weinberg told the Albany, NY Times Union in January. The Max Weinberg’s Jukebox concept has the audience collaboratively make the set list by calling out titles from a scrolling 300+ song list resulting in an interactive, energetic music party. “These are the songs that I listened to as a kid,” Weinberg explained. “Everything from the Beatles to the Stones to the English invasion and the Beach Boys.” Tickets will go on sale on Friday, June 28. With sponsorship support from Mayo Clinic Health System, tickets to the show were priced at $25 advance, $30 day-of-show. Other venues offer tickets at $75-$100. This is a reserved seating show.
