Find Seward Artist Meg Erke at the Frolic

Meg Erke is a mixed media artist integrating painting and book arts.  Her work is inspired by nature and the accessibility of outdoor spaces in Minneapolis area. She is the author and illustrator of “Minnealphabet: An outdoorsy homage to Minneapolis”, a picture book celebrating the city’s unique connection to natural spaces. Meg finds beauty in the discarded (broken books, old windows, yellowed paper) and is especially drawn to old and broken books integrating parts of salvaged books into all of her work.

Meg has been in the field of arts education since 2000. It has evolved over the years taking on the form of Middle and High School Art Teacher and more recently as a teaching artist doing residency work in schools, community education classes, and one time events and workshops. Meg passionately believes that absolutely everyone can learn to draw, paint, sculpt and be creative with the right guidance and support. Her students gain skills and confidence through intentional, concrete demonstrations and use of quality professional art materials.

Just in time for holiday shopping, you can find Meg’s work at Faith Mennonite Church during the Seward Winter Frolic on Saturday, Dec. 7, 10am-5pm and Sunday Dec. 8, 12-5pm during the Frolic.
