The Mississippi River Gorge and its wealth of heritage trees have always intrigued me. This series pays respect to these gentle witnesses of migration and settlement along our mighty river. Most of our families are not native to Minnesota; we have moved to here from different lands. It is our collective heritage that makes the Twin Cities a culturally rich and diverse place to call home. The trees have witnessed these waves of immigration and welcomed all, without discrimination.
This series of works also speaks to a sense of quietness and peace that can be found in the restored savanna, the cold-water spring and the 333-year-old “Ancient Oak” of Minneapolis.
Alison Price holds a BA in Studio Art from Augsburg College, Minneapolis, MN and a MA in Studio Art from the University of Wisconsin. Her art is collected nationally and internationally, including a collection at the new FBI Headquarters in Brooklyn Center.
Watch for Alison Price being featured on Minnesota Original, the PBS channel.
Congratulations, Alison, on this achievement!
These magnificent, steadfast trees acknowledge the contribution of all our respective backgrounds and ancestries.
Gallery hours are 1-5 pm, Tuesday through Sunday.
