Flora/Fauna Opens this Friday (29th) at 5pm!

Welcome all to the Spring 2010 semester.  We would like to start the semester off right with an intensely intricate, brutal, and beautiful exhibit: Flora/Fauna


Flora/Fauna
Work by Kako Ueda and Roxanne Jackson
January 29-February 26, 2010

Opening reception: Friday, January 29, 5-8pm
Gallery talk with artists: 4pm

Kako Ueda and Roxanne Jackson focus on physical nature and human nature in abstract and inventive ways.  They share an interest in dualities, such as nature and culture, light and dark. In their work, the natural world is intricate, fascinating, grotesque, frightening – something to be drawn deeply into and sometimes shocked by.

New York artist Kako Ueda constructs her work from intricate hand-cut paper which references, in part, paper cutting from Japan where she was born. Minneapolis-based Roxanne Jackson works three-dimensionally with clay to form large compositions of human/animal hybrids.

Hello All,

Flora/Fauna, our first show this semester, promises to be one of our most intense shows of the year.  This is not an event to miss.  The opening reception for Flora/Fauna is this Friday, January 29th from 5-8pm.  There is also an artist talk with the artists at 4pm the same day.  Attached is a PDF with more information and images. Here is a description of the show:
