Gregg Fleishman

In 1972, Fleishman created cubes for a private alternative school in Culver City, California. He then spent the next 20 years making similar single module structures, domes, and octahedrals. As stated on his website, Fleishman is an architect, designer, artist and inventor whose work is largely influenced by geometry and functionality. Not only is his work creative, but practical too. He designed the 'DH1 Disaster House' which can be built without any fasteners for emergency type situations. See more of his work including some interesting chairs at his website, Gregg Fleishman.

Mary Ann Strandell

A friend and I were perusing through the IMS(International Market Square) this weekend when we stopped in a small art gallery that carried work by Mary Ann Srandell. I really wish you could see her artwork in person, because as beautiful as these images are, they are much more vibrant directly in front of you. Everything in the gallery that I gravitated to, was work done by Mary Ann Strandell. You can see more of her work at her website Mary Ann Strandell.

Yara Anderson

The following excerpt is from the Groveland Gallery:
"Yara Anderson grew up in a small village in The Netherlands. Her mother was an avid gardener and Yara learned to love flowers early on. In 1994, she graduated with a degree in Pharmacy from the Rijks Universiteit Groningen, The Netherlands, specializing in medicinal plants. This led to a 6-month research project in India and Nepal. Upon moving to the USA, she studied realistic sculpture at the Minnesota River School of Fine Arts. She started working as a museum fabrication artist in 1998, building botanically accurate plant, tree and insect models. She enrolled in the certificate program at the Minnesota School of Botanical Art in 2006.
Yara lives in South Minneapolis with her husband Thor, her sons, Haakon and Bjorn and their dog Bear.
Yara has shown her work at The Gallery at Filoli, for the American Society of Botanical Artists & New York Horticultural Society, the Robbin Gallery in Robbinsdale, MN, and the Bloomington Art Center. "
