Sivertson Gallery

After suffering the joys and foibles of several lovely-yet-inadequate separate locations on Lake Superior in Grand Marais Minnesota, Sivertson Gallery’s gallery and frame shop operations are at last under the same roof in a thoughtful remodeling of an old department store located on the charming village’s main retail street. The building is a modern structure; Olson's solution to displaying art there was to keep it modern and, using design cues such as eccentric angles, minimalist displays and subtle color shifts, accentuate the art in a museum shop atmosphere.


The fireplace is a take on a Lake Superior crib dock structure and hearkens back to the Sivertson family's commercial fishing roots.
