Daniel Buettner’s incredible drawing skill and his quirky knack for random association come together in his current body of work. His acrylic paintings are seriously detailed yet humorously composed. On the flip side, Ingrid Restemayer displays a mixture of found-objects with fiberart and embroidery techniques. Objects rescued from the junk drawer become key players in each small, stitched composition.
Rosalux Gallery is funded and managed by its 24 artist members. Consumers buy direct from the artist who creates the work. Rosalux is a vibrant and growing community of Twin Cities artists working together to help build not only each others' careers, but also the Twin Cities' art community.
