Rosalux Gallery presents Pattern Recognition, an exhibition of artists Areca Roe and Robert Roscoe. The show explores the use of patterns and the human gravitation towards seeking out patterns. As photographers with differing styles, both Roe and Roscoe search for patterns in the everyday, transforming the ordinary into a visual form. Roe will present her series Housebroken, which highlights unusual pets in domestic environments. Roscoe analyzes the details of buildings, looking closely at the materials and fragments that compose larger structures. The exhibition will run through July 31st.

Till Death Do Us Part showcases the work of married couple, Nicholaus Arnold and Ashley Jude. Through sculpture, installation, and 2D imagery, the exhibition explores the day to day life within a long-term relationship. Themes of repetition, stability, and consistency – all components of a long-term relationship- are present throughout the exhibition. Combining the conceptual with the intuitive, each artist highlights different aspects of relationships. Exhibited at Regis Center for Art West Gallery, the show will be on view until July 29th.

Rodrigo Oñate, Luis Fitch, and Repo combine elements of mythology and street art to retell the stories of their childhood. With Mexican, Central American, and Minnesotan backgrounds, each artist brings their own set of folklore and history to the exhibition. Rodrigo Oñate was born in Mexico and relocated to Minneapolis. Using evocative imagery, Oñate depicts woodland creatures and fairytale characters. Luis Fitch is best known for his Dia De Los Muertos-inspired wheatpastes. Born in Tijuana and eventually landing in Minnesota, Fitch often explores the dichotomy of South and North and also utilizes traditional and contemporary artistic techniques. Repo is a Minnesota native and is active in the local street art scene. He has developed a Buddha character that has different manifestations, such as a fat cat, the Easter bunny, or a bucktooth boy. The exhibition will continue through July 30th.
