Studio 176 has announced a series of summer exhibits, In Tandem, June through August featuring work each month of two artists who either work, live or have a strong creative connection to each other. Kicking off the exhibit series in June are Minneapolis based artists Kay Rossbach and Jay Ross. Jay Ross (American University, 2014) and Kay Rossbach (Minneapolis College of Art and Design, 2014) are artists living and working in Minneapolis. Their work takes inspiration from fantasy aesthetics, with an emphasis on nature and the occult. Whether in illustrative or sequential art, Jay and Kay draw on their love of storytelling to create evocative visuals. Kay has published comic works in multiple anthologies and online, including a long running series called Ingress Adventuring Company. Jay is showcasing works created during a residency at The Future, in South Minneapolis, as well as additional print projects. Visitors are invited to meet the artists during their opening reception from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 4. Studio 176 is located on Culture Street (3rd Street off Main) across from Bella Caffé. Summer hours are Thursday through Saturday, 11a.m. to 3 p.m. June through August.
