Tia Keo - Artist Reception & Gallery Talk

Included with Museum Admission.

ASI continues its year-long exploration of The Handmade, featuring Three Sixty Five, an exhibition by Minnesota-based artist and maker, Tia Keo, which runs June 30 – August 5, 2018

Anchored by daily watercolor/drawing and set free through new woven metal sculptures and vessels, the exhibition features new artistic explorations and directions Keo has taken over the course of 365 days.  The exhibition hints at the artists incessant need to create through committed practice and most important, how that cultivation allows the 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.  

Include in cost of Museum Admission
