Two Great Shows »

Minneapolis hosted two great art openings last night. At Gallery 360 (Xerxes and 50th in Minneapolis) Rebecca Koponen unveiled her latest paintings in a show titled “The Amber Light.” Beautiful!

Her paintings are very dreamy and warm with stunning colors all of which are used very subtly. Each piece is a hybrid of abstraction and representation (a style I am constantly trying to master). I took the liberty of stealing one of the images (my favorite) to post here.

Also opening last night was a show called “Circus” by Felice Amato. If you’re like me and have a 2.6 second attention span, Felice’s work might be easy for you to pass by. But, if you fight your inner impatience and take time to look at this work, you will be delightfully surprised.

The detail in each of these sculptures is thoughtful and whimsical and sometimes even funny. Looking at these I felt like I was having weird dreams about the circus. So cool!
