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.

David Tomlinson's Artist Statement:
I have enjoyed working with numerous art mediums. Currently my focus is on watercolor painting. For me watercolors offers unique qualities not found in other painting mediums. The magical interaction of water and pigment can create forms and colors not achievable in other forms of painting.
Each new watercolor painting is an adventure and challenge by being in control and yet letting go and letting the water and pigment work it's will. My definition of a successful watercolor painting is one with sparkle, clarity and losseness.
I am so grateful and thankful to so many instructors and colleges who have aided and encouraged me with this watercolor painting journey.
