About Abnet Farm

The Abnet Farm Art Show will take place on September 14-16 2012.

Abnet Farm was established in 1960 by the late Richard Abnet, a premiere independent potter in the St. Croix Valley. Richard transformed the original dairy barn into a pottery workshop for himself and painting studio for his wife Edie Abnet. Richard also designed the landscape and gardens surrounding the early 20th century barn. The beautiful gardens and studio space, which have been an inspiration to artists and students over the years, provide the backdrop for the works that will be presented.

The show will include work by painter Edie Abnet, photographer Julie Abnet, furniture designer Lucas Mark, painter Linda Oliver, painter Lorie Schackmann, painter Evonne Sunram, textile artist Helen Tomollilo and wood turner Phil Wendt.

Abnet Farm is located 8 miles north of Stillwater at 16885 Square Lake Trail North.

Opening September 14, 2012 4-8 p.m.

Saturday September 15, 2012 and Sunday September 16, 2012 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  1. Ms. Abnet,

    I’m the editor of St. Croix Valley Magazine, a new monthly community lifestyle magazine by Tiger Oak Publishing that will launch in March 2015. We will cover the St. Croix Valley area, from Marine on the St. Croix, south to Afton, and including Hudson. I grew up in Afton, graduated from Stillwater High School, and am delighted to share the wonderful stories about this community.

    I am a frequent visitor to the Tamarack Gallery and have been a fan of your paintings for years. I studied watercolor painting at St. Olaf College and appreciate your painting techniques. If you are interested, I would be delighted to feature you and your work in our June 2015 issue. The article could profile the work you create at Abnet Farm, the property that you have enjoyed for years, what you appreciate about life and the arts in the Stillwater area, and, if you agree, the artistic talents that run in your family — including your late husband, Richard, and your daughter’s photography work. I would be open to your ideas.

    Are you interested? If so, what is the best way to reach you?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you,

    – Kerstin
