Tom Helgeson and Bob White are both rabid avid conservationists. One speaks with his pen and the other, predominantly with paint. They both are story tellers. Their contributions have enlightened generations of dreamers who share their passion for adventure and commitment to cause. They are great good men who have earned the respect and admiration of eccentrics throughout the world who are drawn together where water meets land and important issues are sorted out by waving a stick.

Both Tom and Bob will be in one place on one night. The Vermilion Art Gallery is the destination. This is your chance to view Bob’s stunning artwork and purchase your Christmas gift early. There will also be Hub Bub and Fan Fare and if you ask, I’ll bet Tom will tell a story. Don’t miss it. I won’t!

Here are the details from Tom:

We’re very pleased to announce the opening of a major showing of the work of renowned sporting artist and friend Bob White from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday December 5 at the Vermilion Gallery, 3440 Belt Line Blvd. in St. Louis Park. Refreshments, of course, and an opportunity to view some of Bob’s latest work, drawn from his fly fishing and upland game hunting. More information on Bob’s exhibit is on its way, but we wanted you to be the first to know. Other artists showing include John Koch, Doug Peterson and Jack Haines.
