WHAT: Mano A Mano
WHERE: Runner Runner Gallery, 219 North 2nd Street, Suite 200, Mpls, MN
WHEN: Feb 16, 2012, 6PM – 9PM
Appetizers and drinks will be provided, and free off-street parking is available.
THE RUNNER RUNNER GALLERY will exhibit the works of two talented Minnesota photographers: Becky Olstad and Colleen Mullins. Olstad studiously captures boxers in her “The Sweet Science” portfolio while Mullins unobtrusively observes holiday travelers in her “Pictures of the Floating World”.
At first glance, Olstad and Mullins’ subject matter could not appear to be more different. However, through close observation, both have learned the rules and rituals of their respective subjects’ games. And through the work of these fine photographers, we are invited into these different worlds without having to pay the price of admission.
Becky Olstad is a fiscal year 2011 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is funded, in part, by the arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the Legacy Amendment vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
THE GALLERY will also be featuring Partnership Resources, a nonprofit day program serving adults with developmental disabilities in Minneapolis and St. Louis Park. PRI received an Metropolitan Regional Arts Council (MRAC) grant to work with 20 clients focusing on Impressionism. Two PRI staff members have been collaborating with the artists to show them a variety of ways to portray light, movement, mixing, and how to apply texture into their painting.
