Zeller pARTnership Art Gallery in Victoria City Hall
Initiated in 2020, the Zeller pARTnership is a collaboration with local artist and Victoria resident Deb Zeller, who owns Zeller Studio in Hopkins, to bring rotating art shows to City Hall. Minnesota-based artists lend their paintings to the City of Victoria to line the walls of Council Chambers on the second floor of City Hall.

About the Artist:
Deb began her art career at age thirteen, when she received a set of oil paints for her birthday. Over the decades she has developed her skills in drawing, painting, glass fusion, encaustic (beeswax) painting, photography, and bronze sculpture. Her most recent bronze commission is the 6-foot tall "Rooted in Tomorrow" for the 100th anniversary of Land O'Lakes.
Deb heads to the Minnesota Figure Study Collaborative in her Hopkins studio, meeting every Wednesday and Saturday. Artists work from live models. Deb hires the models, prepares the studio, administers and participates in the sessions, typically creating over a dozen quick sketches and an oil painting or two per week.
She was featured in a four-person exhibition in New York City, participated in the Loveland, Colorado sculpture exhibition and had a solo exhibition at the Crow River Arts Gallery in Hutchinson, MN. Deb has had publicly installed sculptures in Castelgar British Colombia, Canada, Sioux City and Mason City, IA, Sioux Falls and Yankton, SD, Gillette, WY, Eau Claire WI, Bemidji, Edina, Hopkins, Hutchinson, Mankato, Minneapolis, Victoria and Waconia, MN. Her life size bronze sculpture, "The Plunge" is permanently installed in a 4.5-acre sculpture park in Altona, Canada.
