Renowned Twin Cities Artist to Exhibit at UW-RF


A colorful, evocative art exhibition featuring Twin Cities painter David Rich runs from Sept. 7 to 25 at Gallery 101 in the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.    

Rich, of St. Paul, has taught at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design for the past 20 years. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States as well as Canada, France, Germany, Israel and Tunisia.

Rich says his work combines direct observation, memory and improvisation. "The paintings are not literal narratives, but speak through physicality," says Rich. "They are not about fixed identities, but about relationships, about the mingling of private and public space that occurs on the street, and within ourselves."

Rich holds a B.F.A. from the Kansas City Art Institute and a M.F.A. from the University of Oregon.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Monday - Friday and 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday. An opening reception is scheduled for Sept. 14 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the gallery. For more information, contact the UW-River Falls art department at (715) 425-3266.
