September 8-October 20, 2018

Opening reception: Saturday, September 8, 4-6 p.m.

East Gallery: The Catherine G. Murphy Gallery at St. Catherine University welcomes Minneapolis artist Melanie Pankau.

Pankau makes pristine, geometric abstractions reflecting the role of meditation in her painting practice. Her small, acrylic on panel paintings invite intimate viewing and reveal the artist's methodical hand. About her work, the artist writes: “I am interested in visualizing a contemplative consciousness and producing work that is laborious – embodying a deep, latent or durational sense of time.” In addition to her paintings, the artist will exhibit compositional drawings, color studies, palette records and other relics of the studio, giving viewers insight to her creative process. For more information, please visit gallery.stkate.edu.

All events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours: M-F, 8-8; S-S,12-6

This exhibition is presented as part of a larger collaboration between Augsburg University, Bethel University, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and St. Catherine University in conjunction with the publication of Kenneth Steinbach's book, Creative Practices for Visual Artists (Routledge, 2018).
