This event occurs weekly, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Rod Massey is a part of a group of contemporary Midwestern artists dedicated to continuing and re-examining the tradition of American Realist scene painting. Massey’s subject matter has changed over the past 40 years, from the houses and yards of his quiet Southwest Minneapolis neighborhood, to abandoned industrial warehouses, gritty highways, and neglected grain elevators. In his artist’s statement Massey has written:
“I strive to reveal the underlying character of the mundane and unremarkable scenes that populate my world… and record them with unsentimental honesty and affection”.
Massey’s sustained investigation of these ordinary places, objects, surfaces and facades reveal newly exposed abstract compositions. These well examined subjects, while meticulously rendered, nonetheless become modernist studies of color, form and pattern.
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 21st from 2-5 pm.
