    The St. Cloud Friends of the MIA are delighted to present: An Evening with Artists- Justin Quinn and Samuel Johnson. Justin joined us as a speaker in a "Trio of Artistic Talents" in collaboration with SCSU faculty for our program in February, 2012. He will be bringing us up to date on his successful endeavors in printmaking. Samuel Johnson and his wife joined us for Fr. Tupa's dinner and lecture in October, 2014. Sam is on the faculty at St. John's University, and you may recognize his name from 'Stoked:Five Artists of Fire and Clay', the lavishly illustrated book written by the MIA's Matthew Welch, commemorating the thirtieth anniversary of the St. John's Pottery Studio, which accompanied the 2010 nationally touring art exhibit of the same name.

    Their current exhibition, running at the Paramount Gallery St. Germain from April 22 throughout May 30, combines the two- and three-dimensional workings of these two nationally established artists who have studios in the St. Cloud area. Johnson and Quinn aim to create bodies of work that bring viewers to the edge of meaning. Using traditional and non-traditional uses of clay and paper, the artists suggest aspects of our nature that is just on the other side of consciousness. This is the first time that Johnson and Quinn have exhibited together.

    Please plan to join us for what promises to be a lovely spring evening in downtown St. Cloud.
