September 12, 2019, Thursday - Soft Time Artist Reception at Mill City Clinic

Time: 5:30 - 7:30 pm

Location: Mill City Clinic Gallery, 901 Second Street S

Soft Time Artist Reception

On exhibit to October 25 (Monday-Friday, 8-5 pm and Saturday, 8-12 noon)

Soft Time is an art exhibition by J. Wren Supak exploring experience through physical materials and actions of painting wholly abstract forms. For Wren’s last solo exhibition, she produced a series of Afterimages, of impressions of influential figures and times in her life. The Afterimages were portraiture that had little to do with how people looked. The pictures were expressive of shared history, the shape of transition and the mark of experience. That series was born of the through-line of translating memory by searching ideas through abstraction. Five of the paintings in this show are from the 2017-2018 Afterimage series. UMN Physicians Mill City Clinic gallery hosts three exhibitions per year in their dedicated public gallery space.

Mill City Clinic curator Donna Bruni Cox and clinic medical director, Dr. Jon Hallberg, have collaborated since 2010 to incorporate fine art into the healthcare space. With support from the University of Minnesota and participation of Minnesota artists, their visual art exhibition program addresses overall wellbeing within a holistic patient-centered, community clinic environment. Cox has visited Wren's studio several times and is honored to present her evocative abstract paintings. 

The reception will include light food, beverages, music and conversation with artist J Wren Supak, clinic and gallery director Dr. Jon Hallberg and gallery curator Donna Bruni Cox. The exhibit is free and open to the public; no appointment necessary.
