Tia Keo – Three Sixty Five

Tia Keo –Three Sixty Five

June 30 – August 5, 2018

Artist Reception, Wednesday, July 11, 6 – 7 p.m.  Gallery Talk by Artist.  Included with Museum Admission.

ASI continues its year-long exploration of The Handmade with Three Sixty Five, an exhibition by Minnesota-based artist and maker, Tia Keo (aka Tia Keobounpeng) which features artistic explorations and that Keo undertook over 365 days.

The installation highlights her daily watercolor/drawing and also displays new woven metal sculptures and samples of her popular jewelry. The exhibition hints at the artist's deep need to create through committed practice and how that cultivation allows an artist’s voice to emerge.

Keo is a Minneapolis-based designer/maker who is a 2017 Minnesota State Arts Board grantee. She is significantly influenced by her Finnish heritage, modern design and handcraft.  Her laser-cut jewelry sells in museum and design shops across the country and she is actively expanding her skills to make metal jewelry and create other work. Her architect father also created a lens through which she viewed the world. 

Keo's installation is part of ASI's Connecting Globally, Engaging Locally exhibition program - a public platform for Minnesota artists to share new developments and direction in their work, while intersecting with ASI's annual theme.
