Elemental Forces and Other Work. As part of the Minnesota Ballet’s Fall performance, the Rite of Spring and Other Dances, choreographer Laura Goodman has taken on the challenge of interpreting visual art into a new ballet. Basing her choreography on the wave paintings of Karen Owsley Nease, Goodman explores the elemental and generative forces depicted in Nease’s artwork. Goodman’s sensuous and powerful piece is titled "Curl, Uncurl and..." Nease's paintings on which the ballet is based, and related works are on display at the gallery through November 3.

This exhibition of smaller work on paper includes lithographs, monoprints, and paintings, and illustrates Rosser’s interest in printmaking, with trial examples of his process in creating monoprints and the multi-layer of color transparencies creating deep implied space that can be achieved in that medium.
Rosser’s work examines an abstract language, exploring architectural forms and constructed space with particular attention to color, its transitions and subtleties. Related to this exploration are investigations of the "space" an art work occupies as compared to the space in which the works are seen.
Rosser’s long-time interest in the relationship between the work of art and the viewer, and that a "painting" does not always have to be vertical on the wall facing a viewer at eye level, comes through in these vivid smaller works, and the way we have chosen to display the works.
The exhibition is on display through November 3.
