ArtHaus welcomes Decorah painter and muralist Carl Homstad and his exhibition, Paranomica. The exhibition will be on display in the ArtHaus Gallery beginning October 19, with an opening reception at 7pm on the same date.
Carl Homstad’s artwork has appeared in The Artist's Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, National Geographic and on Iowa Public TV’s "Living in Iowa.”

To Carl Homstad, the idea of combination is the core of making art. He combines together features from different views to create interesting composition of abstract shapes "like a jigsaw puzzle", forming a scene of his own imagination. On display in the ArtHaus Gallery will be the panoramic photographs that inspired Homstad and have been a part of his process.

Join us in the show where the artist's ideas take root.

The gallery show is free to attend.

You’ll learn about how different glazes react to this unique firing process to result in striking effects and one-of-a-kind pieces. Best of all, you’ll create your own piece to take home.

“Photography for Life” is a series of nature photography courses that uses the rules of composition to discuss how to compose both our images and our lives in a more intentional way. Nature photography gives us a tool for being more aware of the beauty around us, which opens us up to new understandings of ourselves and our connection to the world. In this workshop, we will explore and express complex ideas, expand curiosity, experiment with creativity, and embark on new adventures with nature photography as our guide. From classroom instruction and group discussion, to hands-on experience, we will focus our minds, practice self-care, and express ideas in a creative, adventurous, and intentional way. No matter your photographic experience, skill level, or style of camera, there will be something to be gained, as this is not a technological workshop, but a deeper exploration of how we experience life. This session is all about simplicity, which will create a clearer focus for your images and your wellness routines.
