CCNH 11/17/06

Feature editor for the Cook County News Herald wrote in her "NorthShore ArtScene" column

Tim Young's good-bye party for the Great Northern Gallery in the caboose was awesome, according to all accounts. Tim will be exhibiting at the Last Chance Gallery in Lutsen in the near future.

A couple of updates: My work is now at the Last Chance Gallery (across from Lockport General Store in Lutsen).

I've sold the caboose. It will be moved to its new location within the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned here for updates on a possible new incarnation of Great Northern Gallery opening fairly soon...

Thanks to everyone who came out to the farewell party. We really had a great time!

From the Cook County News-Herald today

Tim Young will host a good-bye party for his Great Northern Gallery in the caboose on Hwy. 61 at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11. Wine and refreshments will be served and his artwork will be on display.

Young, who had a house on the property, is moving to Pike Lake Road. He is currently exhibiting his work at the Pie Place, which also handles his cards. The public is invited to the party, which Young jokingly calls "the de-railed" party.

Running Whippet


This painting is at least five years old, I think. Orbit is the father of my black dog, Cricket. Madeline's had this painting hanging in her room for a long time, and now it will be framed and included in "Dog Show", I think.


Jack is my nephew Philip's Jack Russell/Westie mix. He's the perfect little scruffy terrier.

This is one of at least 8 paintings I've done for "Dog Show", an exhibit which will be at the Johnson Heritage Post art gallery in July/August/September 2007 in Grand Marais. As the title suggests, it will be a show of dog art. I am doing several portraits of special dogs, in addition to other dog images. Annie is definitely a special dog, and a good friend.

Closing the gallery

I've owned this property since 1992, and opened the gallery in the caboose in 1993. This Saturday, November 11, 2006, I am having the final reception/party, starting at 6 pm. It will be a chance to share memories and to thank this community for all the support over the years. I'll still be in the community, and may even open another gallery eventually. In the meantime, I'll continue painting (as long as I'm breathing) and showing my work. I'll also keep up with this blog. The Cook County News Herald is going to cover the weekend's festivities in this week's paper, so I'll post that when it comes out on Thursday.
