Living Art on display in Kingfield

Artwork for the Kingfield neighborhood’s third annual art show and silent auction went on display today at Anodyne Coffee House, 4301 Nicollet Ave. S.

The art will be up through March 22, when it is sold at a silent auction that will take place from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. at the Rau + Barber photography studio, 4244 Nicollet Ave. S.

The Kingfield Neighborhood Association (KFNA) partnered with the Lyndale Neighborhood Association (LNA) for this year’s show, called Living Art. Artists from Kingfield, Lyndale and throughout the Twin Cities were asked to create something that captured the spirit of Living art, however they decided to interpret it.

Any medium could be used and artists could create work to a maximum of 24 inches tall, 24 inches wide and 18 inches deep. KFNA also encouraged family-friendly work and reserved the right to reject pieces deemed inappropriate.

Artists will set the minimum bids for their work, not to exceed $100. They can keep 50 percent of the sale; the rest will be put toward this summer’s Walldogs on Nicollet project, which involves the painting of six to 10 murals along Nicollet Avenue.

Only selected art is on display at Anodyne. Registered artists still have until March 15 to submit their work.

Tickets to the silent auction are $10 in advance and $20 at the door. Anodyne and local restaurant Corner Table will provide appetizers, and wine and beer will be available for purchase.
