The new work of Minneapolis artists Katelyn Farstad and David Frohlich moves through space and time, even when it's static. That's the nature of "Ishoyet; Isopleth," their installation of paintings, prints, and kinetic media on a double bill with St. Paul artist Gregory Fitz's "Seven Billion," opening at the MAEP Gallery this week. An isopleth is a contour line bringing two points together; an ishoyet is a line that connects points producing equal amounts of precipitation. Which Farstad or Frohlich is depends on your perspective. And where they meet? Predictions range from storm clouds to sunny with a chance of...eggs. Across the room is Fitz's installation of quickly executed landscapes and sculptures of everyday materials. Artistic value, intention, and practices are under contemplation in this show. Dress for the weather. There will be an opening reception at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 19. There will also be an artists' talk at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 17.
