Standing Witness
site: Sage Creek—Catherine Meier

For “Standing Witness, site: Sage Creek,” Catherine Meier will present a hand-drawn animation that records the temporality and vastness of the land located at the Sage Creek Campground in South Dakota’s Badlands National Park. Through the animation process, Meier captured the passage of time and the evolution of land as it relates to this place. Learn more about Meier’s exhibition here.

This exhibition is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council. Meier was a recipient of a 2013 McKnight Visual Artist Fellowship.  Thanks to appropriations from The McKnight Foundation and the Minnesota State Legislature’s general and arts and cultural heritage funds.

Edgeworlds—Jamie Kinroy

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Jamie Kinroy visited Japan before calling Minneapolis home. His multicultural experiences collide within the artificial landscapes that he has illustrated for “Edgeworlds.” While he is inspired by the history of illustration, Kinroy rejects linear narrative. Instead, he focuses on intricately designed locations or environments. Each print, drawing, and painting becomes a window onto a familiar but undefinable scene that has the potential for infinite narratives. Learn more about Kinroy’s exhibition here.

The opening reception for “Standing Witness, site: Sage Creek” and “Edgeworld” will be Thursday, October 15, 6 to 9 p.m.
Artist talks will take place Thursday, November 19, 7 p.m.
