Exhibition Opening Tonight 7pm to 12am

Better reschedule that fondu night and come out to opening of the Edie Overturf and Derek Van Gieson exhibit In Search Of, happening at Public Functionary, Northeast Minneapolis, 7pm to 12am. It'll be a hoot and you'll see damn near 80 pieces of art. Maybe more, I forgot to count everything once it got hung. See you there!

Edie Overturf & Derek Van Gieson Exhibition

This Friday, September 19th, will be the opening of In Search Of, a joint concept exhibition between Edie Overturf and myself at Public Functionary, a gallery in Northeast Minneapolis. Edie's woodcuts and reliefs will join my paintings and drawings in a show that riffs on the creation myths and histories found in folklore, religion, and mythology.

Our idea was to develop five tribes and for each of us to elaborate upon and document two of them. We worked on these separately and shared our progress halfway through the show's development in order to gain access to each other's story lines for use in repeating and overlapping motifs. Each tribe has a unique way in how they depict themselves and others in their history, in this way, we also riff on our own history and the history of other nations.
