This Saturday, we draw back the curtains for the grand opening of a spectactular new art show at CO Exhibitions. A collection of paintings and sculptures from over one dozen local and international artists, "Effigy And Exile" is the third group exhibit of the Holdfast collective. The show is a celebration of the figurative arts and features portraits of exiled, shunned, and forgotten characters, all painted or drawn with impeccable technical skill. We have never seen a show quite like this come through CO.
Effigy And Exile opes this Saturday, June 28th at CO Exhibitions.
1101 Stinson Blvd at Broadway in Norheast Minneapolis, MN
Free / all ages welcome
The opening features live music from Minneapolis' dark folk outfit Blood And Sun.

Our buds downstairs at The Cabin will also have their printing studio open throughout the weekend with some artwork hanging up.

In May 2013, we invited over two dozen local artists to design and build their very own piñatas to be displayed and destroyed right here in our CO Exhibitions gallery. We saw everything from Viking ships to wild birds to DeLoreans to baby seals to Game of Thrones characters to oversized potatoes. Art lovers bought "Smash Tickets" for the rights to step up and swing at the piñatas and we ended up raising several hundred dollars for local food bank Second Harvest Heartland. It was one of the most fun and creative nights we've ever seen go down at CO ... and we wanna do it all over again!
