CLC Building, 2nd Floor

3900 Bethel Drive

St. Paul, MN 55112 

Exhibition: "Restrike"

This exhibition will explore printmaking as it has always been both an art form and a media of mass communication, or an art medium and a print media. This show proposes to look at printmaking artists that draw their imagery or ideas from other communication media. Some of these artists are making direct Bethelcommentary on the media and how our lives are influenced by it, while others are taking a less antagonistic approach, and are simply appropriating  and repurposing imagery from the mass media.

Curated by Jeff Wetzig, Associate Professor of Printmaking at Bethel University. 

Artists include: Karin Bos, Wanda Ewing, Jon Lee, Beauvais Lyons, Alysia Kaplan.

Denler Art Gallery, Northwestern College

3003 Snelling Avenue North

Saint Paul, Minnesota 55113-1598

Exhibition: "All or Nothing"

Denler Gallery will be hosting a group exhibition of printmedia based around the theme of horror vacui, or the fear of emptiness. Displayed will be work that attempts to deal with “nothingness” in a rich variety of ways. “All” and “nothing” are often paradoxically fused together: images attempting to encapsulate “everything” can paradoxically be void of meaning, while the smallest, most immaterial gestures can be loaded. The binary extremes implied in the phrase “all or nothing” may collapse in to each other, and in so doing produce a more complicated and challenging relationship between absence and presence, infinity and zero.

 Exhibition Dates:  October 15 - November 19

Gallery Hours: Monday - Friday, 9am - 4pm
