November 7th - Andy Gullahorn at Art House North, St. Paul
Hi Art House Friends,
We're looking forward to gathering with you all soon. Can't wait for this upcoming event we have planned.
Andy Gullahorn is one of the most skilled songwriters I know, and, not to overstate it, one of the most enjoyable writers to see live. He is well established in the folk music world as a respected songwriter and storyteller, and we are honored to have him at Art House North.
His new record is stuck in my CD player (yes, I still have a CD player and still buy real CDs). If you know his music, you know what I'm talking about, and if you don't, then I really have someone I want you to meet...
"Andy’s songs are full of humor, clear vision, and compassion. His voice is humble and strong; his writing is kind and cutting; his sound is familiar and intriguing; and it all comes together around a beautiful heart that holds a truth that is inspiring and believable.” – David Wilcox
"Only a very few writers can create songs that are hilarious, inspiring, happy, sad – and sometimes all at once. Andy writes and performs these songs with unselfconscious precision and grace.” – Pierce Pettis
"Andy Gullahorn really is good at all he does, musically and creatively, and is having a really good time doing it.” – Buddy Greene
"Andy is a freak of nature musically. VERY few writers can write songs that bring tears of both laughter and pain. Andy can do that. I’m consistently fascinated by his music.” – Dave Barnes
Jun 8th - Andy Crouch at Art House North, St. Paul
Andy Crouch is an entrepreneur who invests social, spiritual, and cultural capital in order to develop people who embody the Kingdom of God.
He is the author of Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling and currently serves as Executive Editor of Christianity Today. In his spare time, Andy is a classical musician who draws from many genres of music to emphasize his message that our own creativity is essential to shaping the culture around us.
Andy will share how the shape of our calling reflects the Trinity in creation, incarnation, contemplation, power, suffering, and new creation. He promises to illustrate his point lavishly with art and music, so you don't want to miss this!
As always, we will provide Dogwood coffee and ask you to consider bringing a dessert to share. This is a free event but we do require a ticket, which you can reserve here.
May 7th - Al Andrews at Art House North, St. Paul
Al Andrews is the founder and director of Porter's Call, which is a free ministry of counsel and support for recording artists and their families. Porter's call has had an open door since 2001 and has served more than 600 artists since then. We have been personally blessed and encouraged by Al and his wisdom. In addition to being a counselor he is the author of two books, The Boy, The Kite and The Wind and The Silence of Adam. Al and his wife Nita have two sons and live in Franklin, Tennessee.
As creative people, we hear from our own internal critics all too often. Al reminds us that "Everyone has a voice that whispers to them, an inner voice that invites doubt and fear." Join us as we discuss these voices with Al - and as we learn to face the fears, contend with them, and listen to words of hope.

October 13th, 2012 - Art House North, St. Paul
Hi Art House North friends!
We are so pleased to announce that our dear friend and mentor Charlie Peacock will be returning to Art House North this fall!
At our Inaugural Art House North event earlier this year, we had the opportunity to hear stories from Charlie and his remarkable wife Andi about their life of music and ministry, and their experience beginning Art House America. This time Charlie is bringing his swing to the Twin Cities, celebrating the release of his newest solo album, a folk/americana blend called No Man's Land. We'll have the chance to hear his new music, plus some fan favorites like In The Light, Down In The Lowlands, Big Man's Hat and more. Charlie Peacock's adventurous and success-laden resume makes him a difficult musician to categorize. The Grammy Award-winning, multi-format performer, songwriter Charlie's adventurous and success-laden resume makes him a difficult musician to categorize. This Grammy Award-winning, multi-format performer, songwriter and record producer has excelled in pop, gospel, country, Folk-Americana, and jazz. Charlie began his iconoclastic artist, songwriting and production career in the 1980s with recordings for A&M, Island, and Sparrow/EMI. Alongside his own unique performing and recording career, Peacock has played a lead role in creating major hits in three separate decades—most notably Amy Grant's "Every Heartbeat" (1991), Switchfoot's "Dare You to Move" (2002) and The Civil Wars' Gold debut album Barton Hollow (2011) - earning Grammys for Best Folk Album and Country Duo.
Charlie is an award-winning artist-producer known as a deeply committed advocate of artistic freedom and risk. Billboard's Encyclopedia of Record Producers calls him one of the 500 most important record producers in music history. We call him friend, and we can't wait to share his music with you. Click here to order your tickets for his show at Art House North on October 13, 2012 at 8:00pm. Tickets are $20 in advance, and $25 at the door. As usual, we will be serving up Minnesota's best coffee and some yummy desserts before the show.
We can wait to see you on October 13. Now, go get those tickets!

February 23rd - Art House North, St. Paul
Our heartfelt thanks to all of you who turned out on February 23 for our Inaugural Event! Opening the doors of this 100 year-old building to you was the realization of a dream, and the beginning of many exciting ventures for artists in the Twin Cities. It certainly was a big night for us and our Art House North team!
The evening itself was magnificent. We packed the house (tickets to the free event 'sold' out within 24 hours of our first tweet) and had standing room only as new friends from near and far gathered. We enjoyed coffee from Dogwood and finger-licking desserts brought by all of you. It was a real treat to hear from the co-founders of Art House America, Charlie Peacock and his lovely wife Andi Ashworth. They spoke about their vision of creative community for the common good, and shared video and stories of their years growing the original Art House in Nashville, TN. We were able to introduce our vision for Art House North as a place for soul-care and nurture for creative catalysts in the Twin Cities - reminding us that we all have creative endeavors. AHN Volunteer Andene Christopherson read to us a moving excerpt from Makoto Fujimura's A Letter to Young Artists. And then, the music! Charlie and Sara played and sang, joined by Aaron Fabbrini and Zach Miller, and they brought the house down with a group of intrepid volunteers (including Sara's mom, Nancy Colbaugh) with a hand-bell-ringing rendition of Journey's Don't Stop Believing. I think the sanctuary might still be ringing...
Thank you for joining us in this adventure!
Still believing,Troy Groves

April 6 - Good Friday Night
Greetings friends and neighbors,
We have more exciting things in store in April. On Good Friday evening, April 6, at 7:00 pm we will gather at Art House North for a presentation on the Imaginative Influence. What do Good Friday, comic books, and the arts all have in common? Art, the Bible, and comic books all have incredible power to shape and influence the human imagination. In this talk we'll explore three key insights J.R.R. Tolkien offered about the power of art to create an alternative world which can challenge and reshape people's fundamental beliefs.
Register here and join us as we hear from Dr. Tim Mackie on the topic. Tim earned a Ph.D. at UW-Madison in Hebrew Bible and Jewish Studies and has a passion to integrate the best of biblical scholarship with the life and mission of the church.
Tim is currently a teaching pastor at Blackhawk Church in Madison, WI, and next month will be moving to his hometown of Portland, Oregon, to become a pastor at Door of Hope Church. We've heard Tim speak recently and found his message to be both entertaining and compelling. We're so glad he agreed to come to the Art House North!
This event is free but space is limited so you must register here to attend. Please sign up to bring some dessert to share, we'll provide the coffee.
May 17 - Concert: Jenny & Tyler
It was so great to gather on Good Friday with you to remember Christ's sacrifice and hear from Dr. Tim Mackie. Many of you have asked about a recording of his message. He gave the same talk in Madison (where we heard him) a few weeks earlier and it's now up on Vimeo! http://vimeo.com/m/39602715
We are very excited to welcome our good friends Jenny and Tyler Somers for our first concert at Art House North on May 17 at 7:00pm. We spent some time on the road this past Fall with these guys. Night after night we enjoyed their sweet spirits, awesome music and passion for their art. We think you will too.
This is our first paid ticketed event. $10 in advance and $12 at the door. As always space is limited so please buy your tickets now, here on Eventbrite.
The ticket price includes Dogwood Coffee (with in-house barista) and refreshments.
See you in a few weeks!
