Guest Artist Events

Thanks to our instructors and consignment artists, we have deep ties to the Twin Cities' arts community. As such, we're aware there is no shortage of opportunities to see and experience creative events around town. But occasionally we'll put very special events on our calendar.

Join our mailing list or watch the events section on our front page's to find out when these happen!

ArtiCulture is hosting our second ever book event with friend, teacher, and artist Kim Gordon!

About the book, The Dragon in the Christmas Tree : Sparky is a young Romanian dragon, and his curiosity about humans gets the better of him when he follows two children into their home. Sparky gets trapped inside and winter is coming! Unable to get away and travel to his homeland, Sparky secretly watches the Christmas season unfold. How will Sparky act when a fierce Christmas Eve storm imperils the children and their parents?

By Minneapolis writer Patrick W. Ledray and Longfellow illustrator Kim Gordon, this holiday story emphasizes empathy and tolerance.

Saturday, May 19th from 1-2:30pmJoin Local Author/Illustrator/Puppeteer Anne Sawyer-Aitch for a Reading, Book Signing, and Puppet make-n-take activity!

Listen to a fun story about a little girl named Nalah who has a pack of imaginary animal friends. Then make a puppet of your own favorite imaginary creature to take home!  Lions, tigers, bears, aliens, mermaids…the sky is the limit.

About the Book:   Nalah and the Pink Tiger  is based on Anne’s lively little niece, who lives so intensely in her imagination that grown-ups around her view her as a troublemaker. Things come to a head when a pink tiger “follows” her home from the zoo. The story celebrates the joyful explosiveness of a child’s fantasy world. Books will be available for purchase at the class.
