Compounds of Obvious Formation

Artist Mary Bergs works in her studio garage in Uptown Minneapolis. So it's poetic and appropriate that she'd create a show for TuckUnder Projects, otherwise known as artist Pete Driessen's art gallery/garage. She's generated an installation that explores the hidden geometry of the white-cube gallery space, manifesting her findings in works on paper, mixed-media drawings, and small sculptures constructed from everyday objects (tape, cardboard, and so forth). "The creative mind," she says, quoting Carl Jung, "plays with the objects it loves." Also on tap is a new show, titled "Go For It!," in TuckUnder's Leaky Sink Gallery (the downstairs bathroom), featuring moody, pen-and-ink renderings on monochrome paper by Minneapolis artist Nick Howard. Also, the "low tech/high joy" duo Marlaine Cox and Karen Kasel are back in the raspberry patch (look for homemade jam), with their scopes trained on the minutia of the urban family yard. There will be an opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, August 1. Unstructured hours are Wednesdays through Sundays, and by appointment.
