Rosalux Gallery 15 Year Anniversary Show

Cars crashing through doors, buildings exploding, bricks thrown through windows, economic collapse, and homelessness all sound like an apocalyptic action thriller, but in truth it is just a small part of the history of Rosalux Gallery. Rising from the ashes of the commercial gallery scene that dominated the twin cities art community in the 80’s and 90’s, Rosalux has grown to be one of the longest running truly independent galleries in the region. Rosalux has incubated and launched the careers of many of Minnesota’s most recognizable art figures and has continued to entertain and challenges it’s audience all the while. Join Rosalux this coming may to celebrate it’s 15th year and the artists that have made it what it is today!
I'm proud to be one of the vast and varied set of amazing Rosalux Gallery alumni artists. To celebrate its 15 year run, Rosalux is hosting a show featuring the work of current and former Rosalux artists. The gallery will be producing a special limited edition book chronicling the history of the gallery and it’s many highs and lows as well as the artists whose hard work and talent pushed Rosalux to the top of the gallery heap over the years.
There will be an opening reception on Saturday May 13th from 7-10 PM, and the exhibition will run through may 28th. Regular gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday from 12-4 PM. The gallery is located at 1400 Van Buren St Ne, Suite 195, Minneapolis, MN, 55413.

Steamy Summer Studio, August First Thursday

It gets very warm and steamy in the studio in the summer months. That happens on the 4th floor of a big old brick building.  But we’re still in there working.  Well, except for those seaside and lake vacation opportunities! Check out what’s getting created at the next First Thursday in the Arts District event.
When: Thursday, August 4th, 5-9pm
Where: Studio 401-B, Northrup King Building, 1500 Jackson St. NE, Minneapolis, MN
If you can’t make it to the studio, or just can’t bear to be without AC, take a look at some of the seaside sketches I’ve been posting on Instagram.

"Delicate Beasts" At Riverviews Artspace, September-October, 2015

Christy Puetz and Ingrid Restemayer have been collaborating and exhibiting together for more than two decades. The artists were classmates at the University of North Dakota where they studied Fiberarts in the 90s. Both continue to work in fiber alongside mixed media, and both focus on the natural world — Puetz creates mixed media sculptures of animal hybrids, and Restemayer creates animal etchings on handmade paper adorned with embroidery. Their joint exhibition Delicate Beasts will open in the Craddock-Terry Gallery with an artist talk by Restemayer on First Friday, September 4th. Delicate Beasts will remain on view through October 23rd.
Christy Puetz – My breathless zoo of hybrid animal forms play with the illusion of real or unnatural, cute or creepy, odd or unnoticed, and ideals of beautiful or ugly.
My current work explores the emotional toll that physical distance can have on a relationship between two people and the feelings of vulnerability that can result. Many of the creatures have their throats accentuated with glass seed beads and sequins to emphasize the sensuality and vulnerability of that part of the body. They hold poses that make them appear to be frozen in time, waiting for onlookers to exit so they can secretly breathe and move around in the shadows subconscious.
Ingrid Restemayer – The etchings themselves are intimate studies of individual animals. I explore not the textbook form of the species, but rather the expressions conveyed by their organic movements captured in a still, illustrated moment of individual personality. The images are small. Their size dictated by the etched substrate – discarded retail gift cards. All the better though, to get up-close and personal with the sometimes mammoth beasts that I portraitize.
At times the work has a hint of storytelling with the use of my intaglio images as pseudo-illustrations for a kind of narrative when paired with code-like paragraph shapes formed from the hand-embroidery.
