At Rosenthal Interiors we are committed to building a stronger connection to, and network within our local artist community. To further cultivate this relationship we have with our local talent, we are committing ourselves to only showcasing, and displaying local art. As a part of this exciting new program, we will be selecting a featured Artist of the Month, of whom we will be displaying original works within our gallery, and coupling this with a monthly Know Your Local Artist event. This will be a great opportunity for you to better understand their work, the artist, and what inspires these talented people to create. Who knows, you may even get a little inspired yourself..!
On this note, welcoming a new and local artist Rita Schaefer-Seaton to our showroom in downtown Minneapolis.
Rita was raised in Germany, and moved to the U.S. in the 1970's. A German education in business and management afforded her the pursuit of a corporate career in the U.S.
In the late 80's Rita choose to develop her artistic and visual skills by studying layout and graphic design.
To facilitate the expansion from design to fine art, Rita studied painting at the Bloomington and Edina Art Centers and took life drawing classes at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
Over the years Rita has exhibited in local art fairs, and has had paintings accepted into juried exhibits.
The primary focus of Rita's work "relates to energy and time...[which] is also influenced by [her] interests in science fiction, psychology, and the archetypical".
Pop by today to view this piece, among many others, and stay tuned for more local art, as we're just getting started! Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have as well.
