NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | Summer Salons bring music to Anita Sue Kolman Gallery in Northeast Minneapolis


The “Summer Salon Series” continues to offer a unique art, film and music series at the Anita Sue Kolman Gallery in Studio 395 at the Northrup King Building, Studio, 1500 Jackson Street NE in the Northeast Arts district.

Next in the Summer Salon series is a musical performance by Michelle Kinney and Nirmala Rajasekar. It’s Thursday, July 12, 6:30-9:00 p.m.

Michelle Kinney is a cellist and Nirmala Rajasekar plays the veena, a plucked Indian string instrument, in the Carnatic system of music from southern Indian. Both musicians are “world-class performers” and established composers.

On Saturday, August 4, the Summer Salon series continues with a program by Chris Koza, a Minneapolis based sing-songwriter who has been recording albums since 2004. Promotional materials from the Gallery note that Koza’s “song-writing carries a strong emphasis on the lyrical and poetic elements, with styling and textures rooted in folk and American traditions.

The work of Gallery Artists will be on display at the Gallery through August 18. Artists include Betsy Ruth Byers, Kate Casanova, Josephine A. Geiger, Joan Malkerson, Dan Mather, Atom Pechman, Kelly Jean Ohl, Patrick Kemal Pryor, and Karl Unnasch.

Each of the salons will be set in a park-like atmosphere in the gallery with potted plants! Guests are invited to bring their own refreshments, chairs, and blankets.
