class=img_thumbleft>Just in time to relieve your pre-Super Bowl football withdrawal, local artist David Rathman's new show at the Weinstein Gallery
carries on his usual work of sending up the mythology of American masculinity. Having already trained his reverant but blackly humorous sights on cowboys
, he now (ahem) tackles football players, specifically the high school team of his small-town Montana alma mater. Images from the show, "Home and Away," after the jump; the artist's reception is tonight
at 6:30 p.m. Weinstein Gallery, 908 W. 46th St, Mpls.
