Four St. Croix Valley artists will be hosting a show at the century-old Soo Line depot in Osceola. Painters Patricia Duncan, Joni Jurek and Lena Rothman, along with photographer Ryan Rodgers, will be showing and selling recent work Friday, Saturday and Sunday, December 16-18.

Lena Rothman and Ryan Rodgers live on the same road in Osceola. Patricia Duncan lives part time on Bone Lake. Joni Jurek resides in Somerset, however, she spent most of her life near the river in Lakeland. Many of her paintings reflect scenes along the beautiful St. Croix and in its valley. Patricia Duncan may sometimes be spotted on country roadsides, plein air painting. Glimpses of the river itself are visible between oak and basswood branches from Lena Rothman’s home studio, where she strives to paint the life, light and emotion of God’s creation. Ryan Rodgers walks, paddles and skis the river with his camera, trying to distinguish between his own perception and the actuality of the landscape.

Refreshments will be served.

  • Saturday, Dec. 17, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
