"Out Loud Color"

I'm posting this to my blog on behalf of dear friend Matthew Scherfenberg. If there's any local Minneapolis folk who read this blog, I urge you to see this show, and also all the other lovely galleries that will be open this weekend for the annual Art-a-Whirl weekend in the NorthEast Minneapolis Arts District.

I will be there Friday night. Hope to see many familiar faces there!

Hello friends,

It's that time of year again, and I have a show of new work opening in May as part of Art - A - Whirl. This years images are a shocking blast of color. I got inspired by some color changing lighting gear I used in a home installation. It made me really ramp up the color. I think you will be kinda shocked by how far. I'm shocked myself. Of course I'm including a black and white selection. Last year B&W was the focus and the color was second. This year the COLOR has come up a notch. The Gallery I'm in has a lot of space so I will be hanging some old favorites too. I will be there all of opening night and most of the rest of the time. I hope to see you all there.

-Matt


"Out Loud Color"
2010 - Art - A - Whirl Gallery Show


Come see my latest work on Opening night, Friday, May 14th, 2010 from 6-10pm.

I hope you can join me as we celebrate the opening of this year’s ART-A-WHIRL, North East's Open Studio and Gallery Tour. I will have more than 20 new images on display, which will also be available for purchase.

This years theme is COLOR.. Big Color. Yes yes I'll have some black and white work too.

If you can't make it Friday night, the gallery will be open Saturday, May 15th - Noon-8:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 16th - Noon-5:00 p.m. in conjunction with all of the ART-A-WHIRL activities. Come see my work, and then make a day of exploring the more then 500 artists throughout the buildings participating in AAW2010.

The gallery is located in the Grain Belt Bottling Company building at 79 Thirteenth Avenue NE in Minneapolis. The Bottling Company building is located just north of the big brewery building and my show will be inside the main entrance, on the first floor right under the red stairs, Studio 113. I hope to see you there.

Wow, it's easy to forget how special colour is. Or maybe it's just when it's used really well, either way, I love it.

Beautiful work on both sides of the lense! My wife and I viewed it this evening. The large, splendidly printed color images have diverse themes with wonderful didactic material from the artist. Congratulations to both Brooke and Matthew!
