Veronique Wantz Gallery presents a solo show of paintings by Kei Gratton which explores an internal space that exists somewhere between the seen and the unseen. Her paintings invite the viewer to enter into an interior dialogue that does not have boundaries. Kei rarely uses a paintbrush; rather, she relies on her hands to move the paint. Her paintings become covered with layers and scratches while carrying a sense of movement. The artist relates her technique to life, as it too is often made of many layers.

Rosalux Gallery presents two solo shows by Minnesota artists Ute Bertog and Betsy Ruth Byers. Bertog’s show Still the night, uses print media, painting, and sound to explore language and communication. The work of Bertog had previously come from the process of reading, whereas this body of work emerges from the process of listening. Freeze & Thaw by Byers is a exhibition of abstract paintings that analyzes the relationship between our bodies and a changing landscape.
