Tamsie Ringler: Still Life

Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., and Sun. from Nov. 15-Feb. 24
Time Varies
Art, Museums

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.
