Taxes and art might not sound like a natural pairing, but for the past 10 years this Minneapolis tax business has thrived while showcasing art and crunching numbers.
The Gallery @ Fox Tax
Fox Tax, founded by brother-sister team Mark and Alyssa Fox, opened shop in northeast Minneapolis in 2006. As tax accountants, they specialized in sorting out the ultra-complicated 1040s of artists, musicians, and other creative types. Since their offices had more space than they could fill, they decided to turn the front part of the building into a gallery. Rock 'n' roll.
For their final show in their current space, next week the duo will be hosting a 10-year retrospective featuring the artists who helped make the gallery great. That includes whimsical illustrator DC Ice, animal portrait expert Jennifer Davis, and Gregory Euclide, whose beautiful nature paintings/installations you might recognize from Bon Iver's eponymous 2011 album.
While Fox Tax is vacating their current space, they have assured people via press announcement that they're not closing shop. The gallery and tax business will be open through mid-April, and around that time they will make an announcement regarding their upcoming projects.
The opening reception for the final show will be 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, January 14, and works will be on display through April 22.
