Art gallery to open up in Maiden Rock this weekend

MAIDEN ROCK - For nearly half her life, Cyndee Randall had worked at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts producing and presenting contemporary art exhibitions.

While enjoying that line of work, she also wanted to be more involved in another passion of hers - the environment.

For that factor and many others led Randall, 52, to launch the Swan Song Contemporary Arts (SSCA) gallery in Maiden Rock. The grand opening is scheduled from 12-6 p.m. this Saturday, to coincide with Maiden Rock's Summerfest weekend. The location for SSCA is W3557 State Highway 35, located across the street from the Pelican Bakery.

Randall explained Maiden Rock was picked as a location for a couple of factors. One was its proximity to the Mississippi River, that coincided with Randall's love of nature and the second was its ambience.

"It's a beautiful place I've always enjoyed," she said. "There is something that is drawing me to this area."
