Current and Upcoming Shows
Go On In
through April 26 2013
Only one video will be playing in the window north of Lake Street on Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis, and that will be "Go on in" by Michael Mott. The video will be available to be seen at all hours, at your convenience, for your enjoyment. The image is of a window view across the street, and the entire program will repeat at approximately ten minute intervals. The video was made as a portrait of the way time passes in the 3 o'clock hour of afternoon. This is the first video work presented by Michael Mott.
Michael Mott lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
GALLERY HOURS= 24-7-365 The Gallery is always open for viewing as it is a small storefront window (8'x8'x2') just to the right of 2948 Chicago Av S, part of the Roberts Shoes store (see schema in Information for exact dimensions).
The Shoebox Gallery presents:
Thor Eric Paul
April 27- May 30, 2013
Thor Eric Paul has a painterly approach somewhere between Frank Stella’s compositional dimensionality and a melting cartoon’s reductive signifiers. The viewer negotiates their organic building blocks with senses anywhere between fly-over and skyscraper. Thor will be making a collection of reasonable monsters for the gallery and displaying some of his large tableaux in the Smuda studio.
Please join the gallery for a reception with the artist on Saturday April 27th from 7-9 PM
Thor Eric Paul is a former Skowhegan and Jerome fellow and has exhibited at Midway Contemporary Arts.

WHAT WE LIKE TO SEE: Work that is cognizant or sensitive to the rough, tumble, smooth and glossy of the area. Artists may consider using the entire building and other display windows in Roberts when proposing marriage of ideas and place. Any media including dance and performance is welcome. ACCEPTED WORK MUST BE READY TO HANG.
CAVEAT: As the Gallery is a window in a shoestore, we cannot offer insurance, shipping nor climate control. The sun will beat down and it will be a little colder or hotter than the store's interior. Automatic awnings protect the window, but not completely. Let your art withstand these conditions when considering submitting.
GO DEEP: The Gallery has existed for the past 7 years and has been host to many provocative art shows as well as the Shoebox Biennial and various performance festivals. Please see details elsewhere herein.
EXCUSE ME WHILE I CLEAR MY THROAT: Three artists who’ve shown at the Shoebox and Sean Smuda Studio in 2004: Alexa Horchowski, Jenny Schmid and Emily Johnson, received Bush Fellowships.
