THE ARTWORK OF KEN ZYLLA 

FROM THE COLLECTION OF BRIAN PLANK

EXHIBITING JUNE 30 - AUGUST 8 

Artist Bio:

Born of humble means near Foley before moving with his family to spend his formative years in and around Onamia, Ken Zylla aspired to become a nationally and internationally renown visual artist. Zylla died Feb. 17 at his home in Corcoran, Minnesota. He was 82.After dabbling in several blue-collar jobs in the Twin Cities, Zylla completely changed career paths in his early 30s, jumping full-bore into the world of painting. His love of the outdoors, his fond memories of mid-20th-century Americana, and his particular interest in preserving on canvass small-town scenes, including vintage autos, were portrayed in much of Zylla’s work. Declaring himself mostly self-taught, Zylla’s unique style caught on with thousands. His paintings were a hit at sports shows around the state, and his work eventually adorned the walls of many cabins, dens, car dealer showrooms and repair shops nationwide.As his career blossomed, Zylla’s work caught the attention of Brown & Bigelow, one of the world’s largest suppliers of promotional products with headquarters in St. Paul. He was commissioned by B & B to produce 12 original prints per year for that company’s calendars, and next to the iconic Norman Rockwell, Zylla became the most used artist for their calendars worldwide during the past decade.At the time of his death, Zylla was still under contract to produce prints for Brown & Bigelow
