I have driven by Gallery 360 at 3011 West 50th in the SW Minneapolis, Linden Hills neighbor too many times to count. Several friends have recommended it and last year I received a bracelet that I love and wear all of the time. Today I decided to stop and see what everyone was talking about. As a first impression, I loved the eclectic mix of fine art and hand crafts made by skilled artisans, mostly local. Gallery 360 owner Merry Beck hand-picks paintings, sculptures, and mixed media, as well as ceramics, clothing, jewelry, and gifts for this contemporary gallery and retail shop.
I was particularly drawn to Natasha D’Schommer’s still life photography and Jennifer Davis’s narrative mixed media work. It was fun to browse a great selection of fresh and modern designs from local and national artisans including jewelry maker, Emily Johnson featured in my November 2009 blog posts. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, I highly recommend stopping by this delightful shop.
