SouthWest Journal

Flourish in the SouthWest Journal:

"Four-part harmony

Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program takes a notably populist turn in its latest show to open at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. The four-artist bill includes some of the most recognizable young or youngish names from the local arts scene: Erika Olson Gross, Jennifer Davis, Terrence Payne and Joe Sinness.

Sinness, who draws colored-pencil still lifes of tchotchkes and flowers floating in white space, is paired with Olson Gross, who delicately charts a physical and emotional landscape in pencil and gouache. In the next room over, Davis explores her familiar fantasy world, filled with dewy animal faces and dendritic growths, while Payne captures the fleeting thoughts of young women treading uncertain social territories in oversized and stylized portraits.

Go see it
“Flourish” runs through Jan. 2 in the Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program Gallery at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, 2400 3rd Ave. S. 888 MIA ARTS (642-2787)."
