A River and Longing At The Third Place Gallery

The Third Place Gallery is an urban living room for guest artists, social conversation, karaoke, and ping pong. Micheal Hoyt is releasing his new graphic novel, A River and Longing at the Third Place Gallery in November of 2018.

Business Reflections is a series of visual and written stories of the local businesses community in Powderhorn Park neighborhood in Minneapolis, MN.

The Third Place Gallery invites you to the release of A River and Longing, the first self-published graphic novel by artist Michael Hoyt. A composite story spanning multiple generations, it explores individuals' lived experiences with domestic and international adoption, ambiguous loss, and how fragmented pasts and presents intertwine to build meaning towards healing and reconciling a life of longing together. Original artwork from the novel will be on display and available for purchase for accessible prices, along with copies of the graphic novel. All proceeds will help offset publication costs, so please come out and support this independent project! Michael wears many artistic hats-an accomplished painter and installation artist, who also has produced, managed, and directed arts-based community projects and youth development programs for over 20 years. Mike will discuss the making of this project and its impacts on his personal life and his artistic career.
