Exquisitely mysterious, Tamsie Ringler’s landscape sculptures and public art installations usher the uncanny and the unexpected into the realm of magnificent possibility. Scale, context, gravity—they all take a backseat to a creative practice where singular juxtapositions of materiality, form, and light are given precedence. Ringler will transform Mia’s gallery for the Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program (MAEP) into a sculptural adventure, investigating the history of still life, the importance of environmental responsibility, and the qualities of ephemerality. Among the objects inserted in the installation are a car, a canoe, a banquet table, and, most quotidian of all, a fiberglass grain silo. The show opens on Thursday, November 16, during Mia’s monthly Free Third Thursday event from 6 to 9 p.m.
