Nearly 30 local artists will showcase their work at Union Depot in downtown Saint Paul during the Fall Saint Paul Art Crawl, October 13-15. In its 26th year, the Saint Paul Art Crawl is recognized as one of the largest cultural events of the year, featuring more than 400 artists and live entertainment in venues across the city. This year also marks the 40th anniversary of Saint Paul’s first art crawl, which was held at Union Depot in 1977 and organized by the founding artists of the St. Paul Art Collective, who held their first group exhibition at the event.
A variety of visual artists will be featured at Union Depot during the three-day event on Friday, October 13 from 6-10 p.m.; Saturday October 14 from noon to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, October 15 from noon to 5 p.m. Art exhibits will be displayed in the Head House and will include work by painters Ralph Ryan and Marjorie Moody, jewelry designer Marie Biallis, and many more.
Ralph Ryan: Ryan’s paintings are created with acrylics and watercolors. His inspirations are fantasy and science fiction, which are both depicted in his works.
Marjorie Moody: Moody’s watercolors and oil paintings are inspired by florals, landscapes, figurative and abstracts. Her work is sold in galleries and exhibitions around the world and found in private collections throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
Marie Biallis: Biallis’ “Gypsy Heart Jewelry Designs” pieces are Bohemian in spirit, with an earthy, casual wearability. She creates her necklaces, earrings, and bracelets using natural stones, beads, leather, metal and wire.
The Saint Paul Art Crawl and exhibits at Union Depot are free and open to the public.
