Vivid Relics: Shawn McNulty and Michael Sweere

RosaluxPoster

Opening Reception: June 3 rd , 7-10pm
Exhibition Dates: June 3 rd -25 th 2017

Rosalux Gallery presents “Vivid Relics” – a new exhibition featuring the dynamic
paintings of Shawn McNulty and folk-inspired works by Michael Sweere. Each artist
creates work that commands the attention of the viewer, and both McNulty and Sweere
are featured in the U.S. Bank Stadium art collection.

Artery McNulty

Shawn McNulty’s signature abstractions have evolved over the past 20 years into a
more organic territory with some subtle ties back to his geometric pieces with rigid
edges. He utilizes a “shoe palette knife,” which allows him to work the canvas on the
floor with his feet, along with random tools like a Swiffer and pieces of plastic. The
result of this process is refreshing and innovative forms comprised of thick acrylic and
pumice, along with his masterful grasp of color theory. McNulty is essentially an action
painter, but there’s a heavy dose of energized color fields throughout his work, which
lend itself to a “calmness over chaos” vibe. His work can be found in private and
corporate collections all over the world including that of General Mills and President Bill
Clinton.

 

Musky Sweere

With the recent installation of his mural at the new Webber Park Library in Minneapolis,
Michael Sweere shifts gears and brings something completely different to Rosalux
Gallery in June. Mr. Sweere’s affinity of American folk art is evident in his newest
installation. A detour from his familiar mosaic work, the exhibition features a wide
range of polychromed (painted) woodcarvings. His characters – inspired
by imagination, native tales and urban folklore invite viewers of all ages to experience
the wonder of “Folk-O- Rama.”

Two solo Painting shows at ROSALUX GALLERY

LAURA STACK: FLUERE  
MELISSA LOOP: FABRICATED REAL

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 10, 7-10pm
Exhibition Dates: September 3 – 25, 2016
Gallery Hours: Saturdays & Sundays, 12 – 4pm or by appt.
rosaluxgallery.com

Rosalux Gallery is pleased to present two solo shows by Minneapolis artists Laura Stack and Melissa Loop. In Fluere, Stack’s abstract ink paintings suggest an amalgam of the natural and the synthetic where shapes morph into odd, though vaguely familiar forms and ink patterns bloom, dissolve, and disperse. In Fabricated Real, Loop’s landscape paintings use her travels to Mayan ruins in Central America as a subject to explore notions of how we form assumptions about authenticity, place, and spirituality through our explorations and ill-informed ideas of other cultures.

Shana Kaplow in the Waiting Room’s group exhibition NO VACANCY

No Vacancy
October 16 – December 13, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, October 16, from 7–10 pm

Featuring Melissa Cooke, Shana Kaplow, Cherith Lundin, Laura Migliorino, Joe Smith, Sara Suppan, and Carrie Thompson.
A glowing red neon hotel sign signifies that all empty rooms are full. 

No Vacancy, on view at Waiting Room October 16 through December 13th, replies to this presupposition with the work of seven artists, who, in their discrete practices, model emotional airlocks for working through contemplation of self and surroundings. 

The exhibition fixates on the residual perceptual affect and psychological tensions that linger in domestic, liminal, and transient places, spaces, and non-spaces. The artists featured in this exhibition point to architecture, furnishings, and self-imagery as a means of representing and simulating the vestiges of internal sensibilities, memory, and feeling.

Many artists here take empty and temporary spaces as their subjects: pregnant thresholds momentarily cool with the sense of delay or a pause in activity. A sense of discomfort, maybe even transformation, settles in these interstitial chambers. Other artists point to objects as vehicles for self or avail their own image as a metric for tenor. In such containers, the lone self is fully on view: inadequate, restless, waiting.No Vacancy brings together artists from various career stages and mediums around the notion of letting in, or out, the metaphorical white noise from that shared sense of solitude.

Curated by Jehra Patrick, the exhibition marks the one-year anniversary of Waiting Room’s exhibition program. In the past 12 months, Waiting Room has hosted five exhibitions, multiple public programs, and shown work from 24 local and national artists. Following this exhibition, Waiting Room will welcome a 2016 exhibition program curated by invitation.
