"Freezer Burn" - Stowell is most interested in that which he does not know. "Slight oddities of the natural world catch my attention, the tree that grows out of a rock cliff or the branch that grows the wrong direction. I look at such phenomena, but I am not trying to recreate them. My attention is not to make objects that imitate but rather works that have a life of their own."

Opening Reception on Monday, November 6, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Joseph Gazzuolo Fine Arts Gallery, FAC 135

"Urban Spaces of Minneapolis" - The city provides an abundant source of visual elements and a structure for the kind of paintings I want to make. I am excited by the visual complexity, rhythm and repetition of shape in the city. Sky is reflected and transmitted through glass walls and windows. Skyways create multiple horizons. Sunlight filters down through the guts of the city as in the forest. These are forms that inspire my paintings.
