MidModMen hosts work of local artist

MidModMen+friends, 2401University Ave., St. Paul, is featuring new works by St. Anthony Park artist Linda Ricklefs Baudry as part of its “Future Heirloom” series.

The collection of four originals in pastel and charcoal are inspired by the artist’s ongoing relationship with nature, as well as her heightened interest in mid-century modern design and architecture.

“I make my mark, using color as emotion, creating a space that invites contemplation,” Baudry wrote in her mission statement. “Exploring the richness of color and playing with the vibrancy of life, I search beyond what the eye sees to find the inner celebration.

“The lens focus tightens and blurs along the way, images overlapping—the old patterns shift to the unforeseen.”

Baudry recently was juried as an associate member of the Pastel Society of America and is a member of Women’s Art Resources of Minnesota (WARM). Her works have been featured in a numerous local and regional galleries and arts events, including the Dow Art Gallery in St. Paul, Kah-Nee-Tah Gallery in Lutsen, Minn., Lanesboro Arts Center in Lanesboro, Minn., and Art-A-Whirl in Minneapolis.

The pieces are available to view and purchase through Sunday, Dec. 31, at MidModMen+friends. Store hours are Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
