Mike Welton's oil paintings capture the downtown architecture of the Twin Cities in unexpected ways. The works from his "Urban Extract" series feature closeup details that will make you wonder where you've spotted them before. Think graceful awnings, bits of signage, graffiti, marble arches, and security cameras. Bring a friend and try to figure out which details you've spotted yourself walking through the city or waiting for the bus. 4-7 p.m. Thursday.
