Ellen Sandbeck

AICHO Galleries is excited to host our first in-person art exhibition in the new year. Our first artist is Ellen Sandbeck of Duluth, MN. She has been a papercut artist for more than 35 years. Her illustrations have been published by several publishing companies and her artwork has been shown all over Minnesota, and in Wisconsin, Illinois, Virginia, and New Jersey. In 2020, she was awarded a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant and she is on the artist roster for the Minneapolis Airport Foundation.

Now thru February 25th, “As Long as the Rivers Shall Run,” the latest series of multicolored, multi-layered, papercuts by Ellen Sandbeck, is an exploration of major rivers,  beginning in our own backyard, with the Mississippi. The series will feature endemic species, including endangered, recently extinct, and invasive ones, found in each of the featured rivers. The text for this series will include the scientific name, conservation status, and a snippet of natural history for each of the featured species, as well as brief comments about the environmental challenges faced by each river. The Mississippi will be represented by five large-scale papercuts (39” x 27”): “Mississippi River Headwaters,” “Upper Mississippi River,” “Middle Mississippi River,” “Lower Mississippi River,” “Mississippi River Delta.”
