BLACK & WHITE Exhibition

Join us for the opening reception of our first exhibition of 2019, 'Black & White', following our monthly second Saturday events, on Saturday, January 12, from 2 - 4 pm. Free will offering at the door. Light refreshments will be served. Enjoy mingling with fellow artists and arts enthusiasts.

To work only in black and white is a challenge for the artist. It forces them to showcase their skills in form, texture, contrast, light, and shape, in a monochromatic fashion. Only black, white, and shades of grey have been used in the artwork on display to express the artist's vision. Join us to see this selection of interesting works that exemplify the visual power of this limited palette, and that offer new and unique views.

Featured artists in this exhibition include: Duane Barnhart, Vincent DeZutti, William Grange, Elayna Hallbeck, Paula Jensen, Shalene Jensvold, Charlie Johnson, Molly Mae Krautkremer, Sonja Larsen, Mark Moser, Martin Nelson, Karla Overland, Holly Rapoport, Victor Sanchez, Ruby Thompson, Emma Tomb, Michael Vogt, and Mike Weatherly.

This exhibition will be on display through February 2.

Crossing Arts Alliance activities are funded, in part, by the voters of Minnesota through grants from Five Wings Arts Council and the
Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

2019 Big Buck Bottle Release
January 12th @ 12 pm - 10 pm

This beer is a personal favorite of mine. We brew it for the brewery's anniversary every year and hold kegs from each year to host a vertical tasting at the release party. A big, bold, hoppy American Barleywine, this beauty ages wonderfully with the agressive hop presense mellowing and the malt complexity building as the years go by. This year, we are offering a reservation of this limited release bottled beer. The bottles are dated and individually numbered. Less than 70 bottles will be produced this year.

Reserve your bottles now (limit 2 per person), by clicking the "Get Tickets" link on this fb event, or HERE: https://goo.gl/9MJqMq. Reservation is redeemable on the day of the bottle release for a free beer ($5 value) and the option to purchase the number of bottles you have reserved. Bottles will be $17 (price includes sales tax). No portion of the purchased ticket price will be applied to the purchase of the bottle.

The release coincides with our 6 year anniversary, so there will be activities all day. The feature of the day is a five year vertical flight of Big Buck Barleywine. Drink your way back in time with a sample from 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, and 2015! The older vintages will be available for purchase by the glass as well. Free brewery tour at 2pm and Live music from Dos Guys from 6-8pm that day.

If you are unable to join us on the day of the release, we will hold your bottles until the following Friday. The free beer offer with ticket is only valid the day of the release. Any bottles not claimed by the end of the day Friday will be released for sale to the general public at noon that Saturday.

Cheers!

Six Years! Wow, what a ride!
As always, we celebrate by cracking out the big guns with our Big Buck Barleywine 5 year vertical flight.
We will also have a candy-inspired beer flight in honor of our anniversary. (7th is wool or copper, so all bets are off for next year).
Dos Guys will be rocking out from 6-8pm.
See you there!
