Paper Darts Pop-Up at SooLOCAL in Minneapolis

Here is a photo of me pretending to operate a tape measure near my paintings for the Paper Darts Pop-Up at SooLocal in Minneapolis, MN:

"Paper Darts has invited over twenty-five different organizations, artists, and writers to transform a South Minneapolis storefront gallery into an ace showcase of the Twin Cities’ thriving creative communities. Steel yourselves and clear your calendars for over twenty events in a short six week period.

In partnership with SooLOCAL, a division of SooVAC, this six-week spectacle will celebrate storytelling by bringing writers, sculptors, publishers, culture and literary mags, illustrators, improvisers, video game experts, comic artists, musicians, poets, GIF artists, and stage actors together in one space to celebrate the sweet-tasting cyclone that results when lit and art collide.

My paintings (shown here) will be on display for the duration of the program- from the opening reception on June 1- the closing on July 20th.


Paperdarts is hosting a writing contest involving my art:
"Jennifer Davis’s enthralling paintings will sit at the heart of our storefront for storytellers. Once you, storyteller, have inevitably fallen in love with the world of Davis’s paintings, we invite you to create 500 words inspired by her work. Submissions can be made through the Paper Darts website. One story will be selected for publication by Paper Darts."
