Complementing the exhibition Painter Painter, this hands-on studio workshop pairs participants with artist Joe Smith. Join him to create mixed-media abstractions using blankets and vacuum-sealed bags. No registration needed: just drop in and paint.
Smith has been a part of the Minneapolis arts community for the past 12 years. A graduate of Cranbrook Academy of Art, he has received several grants and fellowships, including a McKnight Fellowship for Visual Artists, the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant, and the Jerome Travel Grant. He has shown in numerous venues, including Midway Contemporary Art, Occasional Art, and the Soap Factory in the Twin Cities, and the Suburban and Julius Caesar in Chicago. His exhibition Softside is on view at David Petersen Gallery, Minneapolis, February 2–March 16.
