Art Exhibit Closings

Four exhibits you don’t want to miss.

As winter settles in for the long haul, we’re lucky to have plenty of art galleries around the Twin Cities to keep us warm (and sane). Be sure to check out these exhibits before they go into hibernation.

Minneapolis Institute of Arts: Art of the Native Americans: The Thaw Collection. Ends Sunday, January 9. Cost: $8
This 110-piece collection from the Eugene and Clare Thaw Collection of North American Indian Art at the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York, features intricate beadwork, woodwork, textiles, and more. Also included in the exhibit are video interviews with local Native American artists and leaders that provide a sense of connection between historical and contemporary Native American art.

Gallery 13: Icon. Ends Sunday, January 9. Free
Louisa Greenstock and Erin Sayer, both renowned for capturing famous faces in compelling ways, have teamed up to produce Icon, a show featuring 50 large-scale portraits of iconic individuals.

Burnet Gallery: Leslie Holt: Hello, Masterpiece. Ends Sunday, January 9. Free
If you like irony, you’ll love this show. Artist Leslie Holt creates postcard-sized reproductions of famous paintings, and then adds her finishing touch: a Hello Kitty image. Whether you leave appalled or applauding, chances are good that Hello, Masterpiece will at least leave you thinking.

The Goldstein Museum of Design: Mao to Now: Chinese Fashion from 1949 to the Present. Ends Sunday, January 9. Free
From structured suits to haute couture, this exhibition showcases the many highs and lows of China’s fashion world and draws parallels between the country’s changing style and growing power.
