Hazel Thorson Stoick Stoeckeler: A Retrospective

Filed under: What's New — Lori Williamson @ 4:10 pm

Fish House, Lutsen

During her rich and varied career, Minneapolis-born Hazel Thorson Stoick Stoeckeler (b. 1918) has been an educator, designer, university professor and world traveler. Above all, one profession has remained constant over the last seven decades — visual artist.

This retrospective exhibit examines the artist’s career with over 40 works of art spanning more than 60 years. It begins with work from the Society’s collection that date from the late 1930s and continues with prepatory sketches for a mural completed in 1945 for the University of Minnesota. The exhibit concludes with a series of watercolors that document Stoeckeler’s trips around the globe. These small, exquisite images are featured in a book titled, “Porthole Views of the World.”

Lenders to the exhibit include the Cook County Historical Society, Grand Marais, Minnesota; University of Minnesota Archives and Libraries; Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering, University of Minnesota and the artist. This exhibit will be on view until January 17, 2010, at the James J. Hill House.
