Textile Center Exhibitions

In this season’s fall exhibitions, two accomplished artists will display their work at Textile Center. Jiseon Lee Isbara (a textile artist from Portland) presents Displaced while San Jose-based Susie Taylor presents Poetic Geometry. One addresses visual vocabulary, and the other touches on intellectual departure. Which is which? Swing through to find out. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. @ 3000 University Ave. S.E., Minneapolis, mnartists.org

Reveal and Conceal: Encaustic Paintings and Sculpture

Encaustic is gaining momentum and making moves and Minneapolis’ Kolman & Pryor Gallery is ahead of the curve. The new gallery, curated by artist Jodi Reeb, showcases the work of four national encaustic artists: Helen Dannelly, Jeffrey Hirst, Julie Snidle, and Reeb herself. Encaustic is an art medium—a really neat one, too. Melted beeswax and colorful pigments are combined to create hot wax paintings and sculptures. Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. @ Northrup King Building #394, 1500 Jackson St. N.E., kolmanpryorgallery.com
