Spectrum ArtWorks, a program of local non-profit RESOURCE, is sponsoring a group exhibition entitled “Impossible Things: Artists Exploring Imagination”, which will open at The Nicollet, 1931 Nicollet Ave., in Minneapolis on May 13. The exhibition’s theme and title is inspired by a quote from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass where the Queen says to Alice: “Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
“The idea to use this quote was to activate curiosity and get ideas flowing,” according to Jes Reyes, Spectrum ArtWorks’ Arts Specialist. “Some artists in the group have created surreal landscapes, while others have explored personal memories related to depression. It will be interesting for others to see how each artist uniquely approaches the theme.” An opening reception is set for May 13 from 4:30 to 7 p.m., and is open to the public. The closing date is tentatively scheduled for July 13.
Participating Spectrum ArtWorks artists include: Cecile Bellamy, cynTHIA, Julia C. Spencer, Peter F. Hinze, James E. Sjolin, Dunji Diego, Wallace R. White, Ruth Lais, Ashley Adams, Faye Buffington-Howell, Kandace Krause, Samuel L., Audrey Bernard, Jude Mostek, C. Reed, and Christi Furnas.
