Sam Wolfe Connelly: Artist Lecture and Weekend Workshop!

Next Friday, January 24th from 7-8PM, we have a visiting artist lecture and talk by the contemporary editorial and freelance illustrator, Sam Wolfe Connelly! We are thrilled to host the event in tandem with the opening reception of Great Personality!


For this lecture, we are partnering with the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. The talk will be held in MCAD's Auditorium 140. During the talk, Sam will be sharing some of his current projects, gallery illustrations, and thoughts on illustration and making. It will be a informative and inspiring talk! This is free and open to the public! Seats are limited, so please arrive early!

Then, we will make our way back across the street for the opening reception of Great Personality! This show features the work by of 50 illustrators and designers who have created non-traditional pinups and "mood setting" environments inspired by the Myers-Briggs Personality Types and the science of ambiance, allure, and attraction. We will discover who we are attracted to, why, and the ways we connect. Learn a little more about yourself through these fully-interactive pieces in the Great Personality Dating Games! These are four, unique virtual reality dating games made and written by Lindsay Nohl. Through these you can get to know all of the characters, swoon over your heartthrobs, and fall for the least expected! Who will win your heart?! You can see more about this opening reception and the artist talk by Sam Wolfe Connelly here!


These series of events are the beginning of a weekend full of inspiration, indulgence, and creation. We have invited Sam Wolfe Connelly to teach a 2.5 day workshop on illustration, studio practice, and how to make the things you love to make for a living! It is all about fine tuning your specific interests and making things possible! The seats for the workshop are filling up quickly- we just have a few spaces left. If you are interested in participating in this workshop you can find all of the information and content on our Light Grey Shop here.
