What the Eye Can’t See, an exhibit by Dell Gross

“From an early age, my grandmother, an artist herself, recognized my artistic potential and nurtured it by enrolling me in art classes. Her influence had a profound impact on my life, instilling in me a sense of adventure and confidence. Growing up in Montana, the natural beauty and spiritual significance of the Badlands and Medicine Rocks deeply imprinted on me, shaping my artistic vision. The landscapes, warm breezes, and small-town life of my childhood provided a rich tapestry of experiences that continue to inspire my work”.

Dell pursued formal education in photography, earning a BFA from the University of Minnesota and a BPA from Brooks Institute of Photography. His professional journey led him to work in film and photography, founding Gross Productions in Minnesota. His work spans various genres, including commercial photography for major companies, portrait photography, and filmmaking. Notable projects include documentaries, promotional videos, and educational content for diverse clients.

“Throughout my career, I have been influenced by renowned photographers and filmmakers, which enriched my understanding of light, color, and composition. Now, through my new venture, Dellg, I explore abstract digital photography, bringing together the myriad influences and experiences of my life. This endeavor allows me to express my inner voice and creativity in new and profound ways, celebrating the culmination of my artistic journey”.

“What the Eye Can’t See” opens on Friday, July 5. The public is invited to an artists’ reception from 4-7pm on Friday, July 5. Wine, beer and light appetizers will be served. The gallery will continue throughout the month of July. Regular gallery hours are 10 am-5 pm, Thursday-Saturday and Sunday 11 am-5 pm. The gallery is free and open to the public.  

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through an operating grant from the East Central Regional Arts Council, thanks to legislative appropriations from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund. This event is sponsored by Pizza Pub.
