"Track 29 Gallery presents its second exhibition of the 2016 season in Delightful 10, featuring new and recent work by critically acclaimed artists Jennifer Davis and Amy Rice. Giving a nod to their first show together (Delightful at Rosalux in 2006), Delightful 10 acknowledges a decade of their mutual appreciation and demonstrates the evolution of their paintings and mixed-media pieces.
Through their art, Davis and Rice give witness to this world and beyond: Davis is completely unleashed, streaming images from a fantastic imagined universe; while Rice testifies to the abundance of a real life tethered to the earth. Through their persistent savvy and innocent perception Davis and Rice shine 21st century guidance through a feminine ethos: care for what’s in your midst, honor other species and remember what you once knew deeply in your heart."
This blurb was in Minnesota Monthly Magazine waaaaay back in 2006 when Amy and I had our first two-woman show together at Rosalux Gallery!
Amy and I have shown our work together many, many times over the years but in 2016 we are celebrating our ten year anniversary of our first two- woman show!
Here are some highlights of our friendship in art:
