"Two" at XYandZ Gallery in Mpls

Celebrating two years of business, XYandZ Gallery presents TWO an exhibit that focuses on the relationships that have been developed between artists both inside and outside the space. 

my contribution to the show:
skull with kittens, 12x16", acrylic/graphite on panel

"XYandZ has invited former exhibitors to curate their own section of the gallery by presenting two artists of their choosing: One emerging artist and one established. From internationally recognized street artists to locally-bred art darlings, the exhibit will offer a truly eclectic array of work, hand-selected by XYandZ artists."

I was invited to participate by Tonja Torgerson. You can read an interview about her selections here.
“ I chose Jennifer because I have been aware of her work since the first time we were shown together over 5 years ago. I have loved watching her work take off and find her a good model of how it is possible to be a successful working artist.” 
THANK YOU, Tonja!!! ;0)
