Artist Mai O'Brion often greets visitors to her gallery with a mug of tea?and then immediately engages them in conversation. Over intermittent sips, she tells them that she and a few fellow artists once dreamed of a different, welcoming kind of gallery and artist collective. They soon banded together to found Chaos Art Gallery & Studio, reaffirming their commitment to showcasing accessible exhibits from local and international artists and mentoring members and students alike.

Inside the studio, Mai and other artists teach several painting classes for groups and individuals. Their most popular offerings are the two-hour BYOB Creative Painting Classes, which invite groups of students to paint one of several chosen subjects, or inspire them to create their own works. Over BYOB classes, students soak in direction as instructors share tips to the group and give one-on-one attention to individuals. Instructors also lead a five-week Art Intensive course, which starts students off with a black-and-white composition drawing and builds their technique until they can complete a painting from a live model.

Michael May remembers the moment that kicked off his love affair with music—it happened on Christmas morning when he was 12 years old. Kneeling beneath the tree, he unwrapped an unusually large gift that turned out to be a Kay acoustic guitar. He started taking lessons, and before long, he was lugging that guitar to house parties around town, where he and his friends covered riffs by bands such as AC/DC and Cheap Trick. Music was entwined in every part of his life; he studied under lauded jazz guitarists, earned a bachelor's degree in music from Wayne State University, and married singer-songwriter Rachel Kurtz.

Now, Michael helps students find their own passion for music at Groove City Guitars in St. Paul. He works with students on reading music, posture, picking, and strumming. Eventually, Michael's students learn to improvise using rock, blues, and jazz techniques.
