Light Grey Art Lab was founded in January of 2012 by Lindsay Nohl. Light Grey Art Lab is a gallery and art events space in Minneapolis, Minnesota (and online!) that focuses on bringing all types of artists and designers together to exhibit, participate, learn and share experience. We believe that it should be easy for creatives to celebrate their practice in ways that challenge, inspire and renew their practice.

The projects, workshops and exhibitions are facilitated by the Light Grey team, Lindsay Nohl, Jenny Bookler, Chris Hajny and James Lavella.

We believe in fostering a global creative community. We host exhibitions, collaborative online projects, art events and local drawing and traveling workshops of all types including a yearly Light Grey Art Camp program, as well as the Light Grey Art Lab Iceland Residency Program. 

Though we are an illustration-heavy gallery, we adore and support an interdisciplinary approach to 'making' -- in that we frequently look for alternative and interesting ways to engage the creative community. Whether it's through a printed project, an interactive element, or an online project, we promote the theory that all artists are multi-faceted, idea-entric individuals whose creativity goes well beyond the visible aspects of a piece into the experiential side of making work.
