Now Open: AGG Art + Home | Glick Gallery

The Minneapolis gallery merges art with fashion and furniture. By combining a gallery model with retail, Glick hopes to offer a new twist on traditional art venues. “I want to create a vibe that says, sit down, have a cocktail, and talk about what inspires you.”


Mpls St. Paul Magazine, Shop & Style

Have you seen? January's issue of Mpls St. Paul Magazine features Annalise and AGG | Glick Gallery in the Shop & Style section. We're thrilled to be a part of this month's publication!

The Northerner, Art Watch

Minneapolis is a hub for art and culture. New galleries are constantly opening or large events are being held at art galleries what seems like every couple of months. AGG Art + Home had their grand opening on Nov. 5.  The gallery is new to Glenwood Avenue and the metro area. Just an eight-minute drive from campus, AGG, or Glick Gallery, offers a unique and modern type of space.

They specialize in contemporary art, photography from the rock-and-roll era, furniture and one-of- a-kind fashion. All are on rotation. Their current exhibit, running through the end of December, features pieces by Norman Seeff, Julian Lennon, Chris Larson and more. AGG features furniture by Maya Mueble and local husband and wife crafters TandemMade. Other home goods range from lighting to vases, throw blankets and notebooks.

Annalise Glick, owner of AGG, had one thing in mind when she was planning the gallery: not to have it feel like an empty and cold space.

“The vision for the gallery was really to create a loft style living space with curated art, clothing and home products,” Glick said.

The gallery is nothing short of homey and has a great urban residential feel. The current and first selection of art is inspired by Glick’s life in Los Angeles and New York City. She previously worked in the music industry, her first passion, and lived her life among other artists. “It is very much a closing of a chapter for me in the music world but at the same time re-inventing it to bring it along with me in my new work.”

The gallery’s atmosphere is very welcoming. “It’s important for people to feel comfortable and want to explore the artists,” Glick said. She hopes that visitors will take away inspiration from walking through, as well as being aware that AGG supports the abundance of local talent. Glick mentions that there is an array of artists at the gallery’s back door.

As far as upcoming events, AGG Gallery will be releasing a schedule of future events, times and artist names on their website and Facebook page. In the meantime, the gallery hosts a wine and cheese night every Thursday from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

“We hope to make new friends, meet artists and creatives to add to the supportive art world we have in Minneapolis,” Glick says.

Opening Preview Party

On Friday, November 4th AGG | Glick Gallery opened it's doors for the first time.  The gallery was filled with many familiar faces of family and friends, and new soon-to-be familiar faces. 

Twenty-three pieces from eight artists made up the first exhibition. AGG is thankful for everyone who came to see the artwork, who warmed the space, and contributed to the memorable evening! 

More information about the artists can be found below.

The show will run through January 2017. 



Louis Waldon

California native Louis Waldon was best known as one of Andy Warhol’s “Superstars” and collaborated with the artist and film director from the 1960’s until Warhol’s death in 1987. An actor by trade, Waldon appeared in a number of Warhol’s avant-garde films, thrusting him into the Silver Factory’s most creative and productive years and into American pop-culture lore.

Waldon was actively involved in the fabrication of Warhol’s work, most notably his famed silkscreened images - which Waldon continued to create on his own until his death in 2013.

 

Norman Seeff

For over four decades, acclaimed photographer Norman Seeff has documented pop-culture history and produced some of the most iconic and enduring images of the world’s cultural icons.

Born in South Africa, Seeff arrived in New York City in 1968 and began shooting people he’d encounter on the streets and at parties, including Robert Mapplethorpe, Patti Smith, Andy Warhol and Johnny Winter. An introduction to graphic designer Bob Cato led to an assignment to shoot photos of The Band at Woodstock in 1969 – his first big gig. Seeff got lost on the way to the festival, arriving an hour late, but managed to capture a photo that ended-up as a poster in the “Stage Fright” album. “And suddenly I have an image in every bar in town. Every club. Every record store,” says Seeff.

He soon became Creative Director at United Artists Records, where he received 5 Grammy nominations for cover design, before opening his own studio on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles – in the space now home to the famed Bar Marmont.

Seeff’s photographic sessions during the 1970’s and 80’s became legendary sessions of celebration and creativity, attracting audiences of celebrities, and his images have contributed to the visual lexicon of the era and are included in some of the most prominent collections in the world.

Our limited edition prints of Norman Seeff’s classic images are produced under his supervision at his studio in Burbank, California.

 

Julian Lennon

Julian Lennon, son of John Lennon, has always felt that he has observed life differently, perhaps because his path through life has been so unusual. Nothing could be more apparent, as he reveals to the viewer his keen eye for composition and his gift for capturing an intimate moment. Julian seeks to depict his personal journey as an artist in the midst of unique life experiences.

 

Daniele Albright

Daniele Albright’s work explores phenomena at the edge of visibility, whether directly as subject matter, or indirectly through a concern for the relationship between perception and cognition in the process of viewing. Interested in collapsing the contradictions between form and formlessness, her focus is on the immaterial as the indeterminate and shifting space between perception and the material world. A formative influence on her work was Lyotard’s 1985 Paris exhibition Les Immateriaux, which documented the rise of the immaterial as a defining factor of contemporary life. From the cultural habitation of ephemeral digital spaces to technology’s ability to map previously invisible phenomena, the more visual our culture becomes, the more, paradoxically, it immerses itself in the realm of the immaterial.

 

Paul Rusconi

Paul Rusconi’s work is often comprised of portraits, usually of those who make up and influence popular culture, ranging from musicians and artists, to poets and politicians. Other themes in the work include the use of language and text, as well as images that are circulating through the myriad of media that we are confronted with daily, from magazine covers to video news feeds.

 

Chris Larson

A recurring element throughout “Deep North” is the shotgun. What began as an interest in shotgun houses – small homes so-named because of how all the doors and hallways directly align – evolved into a literal use of the shotgun as a vehicle for creating art. 

In “Deep North” the artist freezes life and action both literally and figuratively. Images of an ice-drenched shotgun house create a series of eerily serene tableaus. Sensual, abstract sculptures are revealed to be casts of actual gunshot blasts. An eight-minute film, entitled “Deep North” depicts a surreal, fantastical world, where bundled up characters repeatedly pass tubes of ice from one end of a shotgun house to the other.

Larson uses gunshot blasts to create artwork like traditional artists might use a paintbrush or chisel. In “Deep North” he creates mixed-media sculptures, images and other artworks by literally shooting objects repeatedly and then capturing or reconstructing the aftermath. His works, created in such a violent fashion are disturbingly upbeat, 

 

Jacob Schroeder

As a part of an ongoing text series, “There are people...” is an investigation into the emotional and physical relationships we have with language in conjunction with materials that speak to my own queer identity. Through the meditative process of hand-stitching individual sequins through two layers of nylons, I present a visually appealing elucidation that references the unfortunate psychological effects brought on by the vulnerability we oftentimes share with others. All that glitters is not gold, and those who love us can leave us.
