I’m excited to have one of my Value Study installations included in the upcoming exhibition, 3 VOLUMES, at Rosalux Gallery, June 4-June 26, 2022.

Public Reception: Saturday, June 11, 7-10 pm
Gallery Hours: Saturdays and Sundays 12-4pm or by appointment; Free and open to all.

The fingers of capitalism touch every aspect of our lives -the artists in this group exhibition explore our collective experience living in its grasp. The works, curated by Priscilla Briggs from submissions for an international call for photo-based imagery and drawings for the zine series Dollars and Sense, explore themes of consumerism, globalization, social justice and the environment.

The 18 participating artists include: Miranda Brandon (Minneapolis, MN), Capucine Bourcart (New York, NY), Eilis Crean (Carrollton, GA), Jasper Fazio (Alexandria, VA), Jon Feinstein (Seattle, WA), Shoshana Fink (Minneapolis, MN), Judith Hornbogen (Leipzig, Germany), Stephen Joyce (Hudson Valley, NY), Elise Kirk (Lawrence, KS), Shanna Merola (Detroit, MI), Katerina Messini (Athens, Greece), John Morris (Newnan, GA), Ellen Mueller (Minneapolis, MN), Sonya Naumann (Los Angeles, CA), Areca Roe (Mankato, MN), Serena Small (Minneapolis, MN), Krista Steinke (Houston, TX), and Ojaswa Thapliyal (New Delhi, India).

3 VOLUMES is a set of zines that will be released in conjunction with the exhibition. This project is supported by a 2021 MNSAB Creative Support grant.

Twenty percent of sales will be donated to Honor the Earth Water Protectors. Honor the Earth’s mission is “to create awareness and support for Native environmental issues and to develop the essential financial and political resources for the survival of sustainable Native communities and global climate justice. Honor the Earth develops these resources by using Indigenous music, art, media, and wisdom to ask people to recognize our joint dependency on Mother Earth and be a voice for those not heard.”
